Another week and another major step in the development of the game. After much back and forth (and a colossal amount of research) I’ve decided to build the game around the “Fate” game system.
There are a host of reasons for this from the synergy many of the elements have with the core game mechanics I had in mind, to the unique battle system that aligns well with the generally pacifistic nature of the characters and the world I’m trying to build.
The use of Fate also potentially makes possible some other avenues for the game world that I had previously considered but thought impossible; so interesting times ahead there. But that’s a story for another day…
For now there is REAL work to be done!
