I was playing a simple flash game called Stick rpg which had a cool concept. I was thinking of using some of its inspirations. Firstly with skills such as Strength (for your fists), intelegence and charm. Those 3 skills help you get through errands and missions. You can do jobs, attempt tests or do errands to help people.
Then you can buy weapons, computer games and other items. Also if you do certain favours you can earn skill level points to help you advance. Also in that flash game a lot of things you do makes the time pass, I was thinking instead you have to maintain your energy level instead. And also the progression would be aging from 15 to 16 to 17 and finally 18 which means different benefits such as buying your own property, drinking, getting a license, better jobs, harder but more beneficial school tests etc. I dont really know about the main story but this RPG component is what could really make this mod really great!
What do you think guys?
