Yeah, that's pretty much why I'm deciding just to reboot it. Why bother continuing if nobody comes back and the situation doesn't get any better.
But yes, this next time around I'll be restricting the starting area to one location.
Yeah, that's what I'll go with. I'll try to remember to throw an NPC sheet together, but if I fail to do that before the reboot goes live just remind me. I am going to focus most of my time on expanding and revitalizing the world, though I can't promise any pictures.
I had tried finding a reference picture for Cartelom to include in my first post, but didn't deem any of them sufficient. I'll give cities another go, but due to the nature of my monsters (mostly regarding those I've yet to reveal) finding reference art for some of them is probably going to be near impossible, if not entirely so - though I do want to find a reference picture to go with the header for the Monster Section. One picture is way easier than scouring the internet for all the enemies I've currently got milling around in my pocket.
And while I think a map would be cool, I just don't have the ability to make one that I feel would be presentable. A reference image for the region itself might not actually be too hard to find, but I haven't tried searching for one of those yet. I'll see how that goes. It might actually be really quick and easy.
This could take me a while. I'm hoping no more than 2 weeks, as I've got summer classes to worry about and my schedule has changed drastically due to changes in my ride situation that leaves me with a whole lot less of the time I normally spent working on this kinda stuff. But there's a fair amount of stuff I want to cover. I threw the original interest check up when this was just a barebones concept, not expecting much to come of it, and ended up flailing around for a month or two - half of which time was spent without internet - trying to scrape this thing together with all the inspiration I could muster. Part of that's just down to how I work, but I did feel some pressure once people started showing interest.
Now I don't feel that pressure, and I've got a base to start with instead of starting from scratch. I know where I want to go and what I want to do, now, I just need the time to put it together and into words.
