Galemboy, you have some very interesting ideas. The only problem I have though, if it's even a problem at all with what you propose, is that it might not be LBA's style. I often get upset with many fanfics because the stories and styles that are written in them are really different from the original.

Getting LBA's style is extremely hard, as many characters are cheesy and unrealistic. Of course, that's not saying its impossible to do it.

If I was the writter, and this is just an if, I would make the story not revolve around Twinsen or any of the main characters from the game. Simply because I think its over-used. I would also no apply the "take over the world/end of the world" stories, since those are also overused. Neither would I apply the plot of kids getting involved, either by getting brainwashed or being stolen...AGAIN. In fact, I wouldn't even use the idea of an evil tyrant or FF returning, for that matter.

Why not go for something original? Make a new character and a new story, but still have it occur in LBA universe. Maybe have a story that occurs at the same time that Relentless does, but with a different char. Or something to that affect.

I think we should do something with the school of magic. Maybe the old wizard died. Twinsen has to take over the school, but offcourse there will be alot of problems happening on his island.

The only problem i can think of is that we have to model te school of magic, and thats not a giant problem...

i know what you mean about it being dificult to keep to the style of lba, but dont forget that lba doesnt have to be light and fairytale. lba2 was a lot less heavy in terms of storyline, but think of lba1. it was darker and more fun to play. my main weaknes in this is my absolute refusal to put in evil people. mad people, yes. power crazed dictators, yes. sadistic murderers, yes. but nothing without reason. but striking a balence between cliche and this is hard

i probably will rework my idea until its very diferent from the origional (its already miles away from that last post) but for now, by god i wil finish my overly detailed script.

length is an issue. i have a feeling that with the amount ive written that i should be drawing to a close soon, but im not sure. apart from the practical limits of super-size files, i dont know whether things are getting to the point where people will be losing interest

i need to have a good look through some fan fics

There's a lot of stories in the forum, not just fanfics. If you tell me what that is your looking for, I can maybe narrow down your search. I know the stories pretty well.

I was thinking of a mix of LBA1 and LBA2 when I hearded 'LBAX'. But you are making a whole new game? Interesting! But some jokes in, that would make the game a bit funny. Like you are talking with somebody and a Viking ship is passing by (maybe a new invasion).

Take a look at Atresica's "Vermin in Heaven." Only problem is that its very broad (over 300 pages long). So good luck finding stuff you'll like (though I like just about everything in it ~_-)

**Except that Twinsen is in it**

As Kurck said, do you have any funny thing in your game? ( just yes or no, ok )
In Lba2 those baloos, for example were very funny to be in a park

Horadrim and I had a chatsession last night about the storyline and if you ask me it could work out pretty okay.
perhaps we can combine these ideas with yours Golemboy (if you'd be so kind to send them to me)?
Idealy we should arrange a time in #lba so us three can work on something.

the edit button has disapeared from that post again; how annoying.
i know horadrim and asterisca have read my stuff, axx got it by accident but axxeleration i sent it to today, gobbles, arent you on the team now? do you want a copy? mad aeon is in an invisable period again, so i might be waiting a while for a reply from him anyway my point is if anyone wants to discus, email is even more annoying than posting. any chance of a messenger thing? i know i have msn, what timeframe are you in tho?

Uhm... I kind of didn't recieve any mail...
At least none on my Gmail or hotmail account (Axxeleration@hotmail.com and [email address])
So maybe something went wrong (typo perhaps or an error :/) But could you please send it again?
I'd like to hear it, oh and you could add me on MSN if you like (I use Hotmail for MSN, not Gmail)
Hope to see the story soon
