Well...I have in mind a quite atipical idea for a scenario:
A nothlander soldier having to travel to the far east(by the far east I mean Japan) to find an ancien artifact,but,things get complicated.
The bigger idea is to try to blend aspects from two very different cultures in a still quite limited game.
Also I have the idea of making this scenario one party member only and even force trough scenario encounters

That is about it ,what I aspect is
as much critic as support so this
scenario comes out at its best.
Thank you.

Is there any particular effect you want to achieve by forcing the party to be singleton? Is this for story or for strategy?

The idea is not complex and its implementation should be fairly standard. Do try to think of a length for you scenario before you start designing too much, though.

Well the "singleton" thing is for both the story and the strategy.
About the the story as said before its about "A" northland soldier.
The strategy.
1 Well this scenario will be quite hard to go single therefore I opted for implementing a npc recruitment system for balacing the odds wich will also enrich the game experience.
2 The scenario will be quite large and complex and will try to be more of a hole campaign than a single scenario emplementing even good trading from one city to another .

Furthermore,its just better to deal with a single character in my idea.

This plot is very, very weak. (And the punctuation is a bit bad. You don't need to add those line breaks.)

An ancient artifact? "Things get complicated?" This is about as cliché as "go kill stuff". I strongly recommend fleshing out your plot idea... a lot.

Well if you wanna know this plot is taken from an old nordic story and I didn't note all of the elements because the story is quite ambigous and needs deciphering because its in bloody NORWEGIAN !

PS: Is my punctuation realy that bad ? :confused:

You could use a couple commas, but it's not too bad. The spelling, on the other hand, is pretty bad. But it's okay, because you're Romanian.

It's in Norsk allright,but an archaic form.
In plus nici eu nici Dante nu se descurca mai bine.

Because he/she is a Romanian sounds very offending, you know. I would have rather hear you say: English is not your mother tongue.

Anyways, that plot sounds indeed cliche, and not very inspiring. Unless its done well, i wouldn't really want to play it.
