Hello everybody! We have tons of new awards for the new year that can be requested through our Awards System thanks to Antifa Lockhart! Some are limited-time awards so go claim them before they are gone forever...
As I've said before, setting shouldn't take the forefront, but it needs to provide an underlying cause for every other element of the story. So allow me to draw up a hypothetical FromSoft-inspired setting...
It's rough, but I hope it offers something useful to you.
The "give-and-take" mechanic, spelled more clearly, is this:
The Shadow Tower is constantly draining the life force of those who venture inside, producing an effect similar to Hollowing in Dark Souls. Death accelerates this process. It can be counteracted only by an offering of souls other than one's own. Within the tower, these souls can be acquired in a number of ways—but primarily by slaying demons which have spawned within. (These demons are born from the greed of the adventurers, and the madness of King Ostrava.)
I appreciate the Dragon's Dogma feedback, by the way. It's just nice to know that I'm not veering in the wrong direction.
You were really helpful to me while I was writing up my super hero RP, and I've finally got everything worked out I believe. I was wondering if, since I've never made one before and you're much more proficient than I, you'd like to sort of review what I've got before I post it tomorrow? If you're too busy that's fine, I just wanted another set of eyes on it to see if it was good or not.
Hey, this is a few months late, but I wanted to apologize for dropping out so suddenly on "The Man Box" thread. I tried a few times to put together a good reply to your last post, but never had the time or energy to finish. Regardless, I appreciated your discussion on the topic--it was intelligent, provoking, and very helpful to me.
So I have all these ideas about how to create ASOIAF characters in Dark Souls...
...but all my character slots are occupied.
Tell me that the Crimson Robes + Waistcloth, Iron Bracelets, Sunlight Straight Sword, Pyromancy flame, and charcoal pine resin wouldn't make the perfect Thoros of Myr. He could even summon Beric Dondarrion as a red phantom.
