Hmmm. I guess I'll try to help you with the storyline if you need it. I just need to know a little bit more detail I guess...

Thanks! Once I hit a wall, I'll ask for some ideas.

EDIT: Major Revalation!  "I don't need for you to keep the crystals after you get them, right?!?"  This will allow me to write crazy back and forth sceens and breath new life into the whole storyline!  I can suddenly have the bad guy summon all the crystals and force you to recollect them.
Muhhaha! (lol)   This new approach will let me write in a different manner than before.  The only way to win is to have all 7, not just almost 7-then-lose-6 of them.   I'm going to have something now, I can feel it!

Also, everything I've shared except for the partners (you will have some, but not necessarily these) will ring true!
For example, the story in the first post; It's still true!
This is a grand revalation!   Yay!

I made huge progress today in the battle engine, as I figured out how to determine who's turn it is.  It's really complex, as it determines turn based on speed.  For example if you had 2 people with speeds of 20 and 30 the 20-speed-guy would go twice while in the same amount of time the 30-speed-guy would go three times.  I have this working for up to all seven people at once. I'll try to have a screenie up soon, but since I have relatives at my house I don't think it will be in the next two or three hours.

Also, I've made progress in my storyline.  I have written everything from the begining to the end of chapter one.  I would post it, but I don't think I want to spoil everyone.  If you would like to see it, just PM me.

Here's a little screenie showing my turn system.  It says turn: then the name of who just had a turn at the bottom, where health should be.  I will put an arrow elsewhere later for that.  It also is just the turn system, so there is only a placeholder for attacking.  Do you guys think this will work?

By the way, in the screenie I'm using these speeds:
Enemy1: 40
Enemy2: 50
Enemy3: 70
You (Imbus): 80
NCP (Partner): 60

Edit: I forgot to mention this: The order if all are tied is You, NCP, E5, E4, E3, E2, E1.

This answers it, although I see how I could have worded it better.
(E1 = Left most enemy, E2 = 2nd Left most enemy... NCP is your partner.)

So if everyone had the exact same speed, you would go first.

Looks good ztrumpet   So the turn system is Chrono Trigger-ish?

Yes, there will be animations.  I will start taking everything out of thier temporary programs tomorrow and putting them in the real, compleat battle program.

I have decided that I need MP so people use moves other than the best ones.  This is to make some moves more desierable.

In an old RPG I worked on for a while, when casting magic, it costed HP instead of MP, so basically you sacrified your health to use magic, so you had to watch out. I think a SNES game called Paladin Quest did that, too. That can pose a problem when implementing Cure magic, though, because it is kinda weird to lose energy to heal them >.>
