Question

Hey all,

I'm new to the site so don't grill me too much here. I was just thinking how cool LBA is and what could be done to make it better (if that's even possible). Then it sort of hit me. (No, stars did not fly out of my head) What do a lot of games have in today's world? Multiplayer. ANd I was trying to imagine LBA 1 or 2 multiplayer. Or at least, using those worlds in a multiplayer universe type thing. Perhaps you could help me with some ideas on how a game like this could be made. I sort of have this vision of a "make-your-own" character type thing with different classes (IE: Guard, Wizard, Citizen, Whatever). AN interesting concept don't you think?

Greetings, D'Sparil. On the behalf of the members of this forum, I would like to thank you for posting this idea. It sounds very interesting, but the thing is, is that we have already though of this concept and work on such product has already began. I'm sure that the rest of my colliegues will describe you what it is that I am talking about.

Welcome to the forums!

I think that's a really (really!) BAD idea.
I hate all those on-line RPG/action games, it's just so damn boring... I'll die if LBA will become RPG...

Ultima/Everquest suck, but that dosn't meen all online RPG's do.
Buldars Gate is excelent, and Diablos fun (but not really an RPG)

Thumbs Up

Alright, granted. I know lots of RPGs do suck. And I don't think it'd work out for LBA either. Perhaps I'm thinking more along the lines of something like Diablo where only a limited number (IE: 4) are allowed into the area at once and work together to complete something. Of course there wouldn't be any stats or anything like that involved, only inventory and the like. And... ummm... ok, thanks to all the people welcoming me and thank you Darkflame for letting me help you in the RPM.

hmmm... but, in this case, it is difficult to make a story for a deathmatch. Or he will not have a story? Bah, i still think is bad.

Talking bad idea city

Little big Adventure is an epic adventure about a lonely hero, destined to save the planet on his own with only help from people at some parts of the globe. Trying to create a multiplayer game for lba would really mess up the game.
