So yeah I managed to get a team together... :iconhappytearsplz: ...hence why I have been so inactive. So my psyche has finally started mending from the major burnout and I'm feeling pretty damn good. Highwind's progress is slow but steady, the outline for the story is probably about 70% - 80% done, and we've been toying around with some battle systems and skill systems.

As always I'm still accepting anyone who'd like to join the team and help with the project, the main skills we're looking for are...

-Composers - RPGMaker VX Ace's preset music is pretty good but it'd be cool if we could have our own soundtrack.
-Artists - As you can see by my posts I was able to make character graphics but I think it'd be a lot cooler if we had custom graphics, I also wanted to maybe try pulling a visual novel and during cutscenes show a kickass picture of what's happening.
-Pixel Artists - Using Game Character Hub I was able to make some character sprites and I got a shit ton of DLC for monster images but I'd rather have custom sprites and monsters, also we're toying with doing a sideview battle system so it'd be nice if we could animate the character movements even slightly.
-Mappers - My own mapping skills are okay but sub-par at best so I'd appreciate help from someone who specializes in it to speed up the process.
-Skill/Monster/Class Designers - We have a designer but he's been sick recently and while I've been able to help with designing my skills aren't amazing so I'd like a few more people to distribute the process between.
-Scripters/Coders - We have a scripter but as with the designers I'd like to distribute the responsibility as I can't even help with that shit, it's beyond me.

I'm not about to ask for free help and demand your undying focus and effort, I understand you might have some projects of your own you'd like to work on, and so we're pretty relaxed about pace. We're fairly organized material wise; we keep in touch via a Skype group and have a dropbox for sharing the files.
Anyhoo if you're interested in joining the project shoot me a message and I'll give you a brief synopsis of the story and if it sounds like something you'd be interested in helping to create we can get you started.

Stay dapper my friends. :iconherotimeplz:

So I nutted up and made a post about recruiting a team on the RPGMaker VX Ace Forum, only a few responses so far and they're mixed, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

Uggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......... Solo RPG making is draining on the psyche...

I'm having conflicting feelings about my own story now; I thought it was pretty damn good but now I'm having second thoughts and I'm not even sure what about, I just have this nagging feeling that I'm missing a lot of damn plot holes and it's driving me nuts. I'm starting to feel like I didn't think the plot through well enough for some reason, and I kind of want to put the game on hiatus and start a new project but at the same time it's like "Well it's not like you have any other plots to work with, just stick with it, and fucking fix it" BUT WHAT IS IT THAT NEEDS FIXING?! I need so much help, like all the help, but I don't have anyone to work with, and I kind of want to maybe post something on the RPG VX Ace Forum to see if there's anyone out there who wants to team up with me so I can maybe stop having to focus on stages, skills, monsters, stats, and shit and focus on what I'm good with; plot and characters. But I'm so fucking neurotic about it! Where do I post it? Will anyone bother helping? Will people be expecting to get paid for help? What if they think it absolutely sucks? What if they're just saying it's a good story just to make me feel better? WHAT IF THEY TRY AND PLACE AN ANCIENT AND DARK CURSE ON ME?! Okay that last one was a little unrealistic and out of place BUT STILL IT'S DRIVING ME UP A FUCKING WALL!

SOS plox.

In the meantime I think I'm going to huddle in a corner and play BattleBlock Theater to possibly calm down. Possibly.


EVERYTHING THING IS GOING WROOOOOONNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGGG!!!

*deep breath*

Okay... Okay... Feel free to ignore all of that, I won't hold it against you, frankly I think I sound like a whiny bitch. Just gonna... stop talking now...

Highwind Characters: Blaire Highwind (Updated) by Doomdragon
Highwind Characters: Blaire Highwind (Updated)
Blaire Highwind
Age: 18
Race: Human
Class: Gunslinger

Our loveable protagonist who is completely aware of how cliched his entire life has been; only a few vague memories of his parents and raised and trained by a skilled swordsman. Of course despite being trained in the sword he choose the way of the gun, something that's caused friction between him and his old man.

Blaire can easily be defined as a smartass; though he's caring with a pretty good sense of justice (yet another cliche he's aware of but can't help) he's often sarcastic and sometimes even has fun at the expense of his teammates. Due to his constant traveling during his childhood he's also quite worldly.

The most notable difference (aside from the addition of new graphics) from the old Blaire graphics and the updated version is the removal of the goggle graphics. Neither Blaire or I have any idea what happened to his goggles, we think the dog may have ate them, and thus we won't be getting them back.

Well technically we will but Blaire really doesn't want them anymore when they come back.

A noticeable addition is the 7th column of facial graphics, this is one of my favorite expressions Blaire makes and is described by Calentz as "That creepy face you make when you're planning something none of us are going to like".

A single man hiked through a dense forest, he was unremarkable; brunette, brown eyes, average looks, and a little on the tall side but not by much. As he hiked every so often he would lightly swing the walking stick he had picked up earlier at the foliage, there was no real reason for it, perhaps it was merely habit, and luckily there was no shortage of small plants to do this. The man reached a small clearing and sat on a nearby rock to take a brief reprieve from his hike, suddenly he heard rustling from a nearby bush.

“Hello?” he called out “Is someone there?”

He saw a shadow move from the bushes and up a nearby tree, it was faster than he could identify but it wasn’t an animal. The trees began rustling, circling around the clearing and the man stood up and ran to the center of the clearing holding his walking stick at the ready, it was no weapon but it would have to do.

“Whoever that is you better cut this out and come out this instant!” the man yelled “This isn’t funny in the least!”

The rustling stopped and an eerie silence swept over the clearing, a chill ran down the man’s spine and he found himself still spinning looking for the source. Around his third spin he found himself face to face with whatever was making that noise, his heart skipped a beat and he fell to the ground, staring at the beast that was stalking him. As he looked it over he found it was no beast at least he didn’t think it was; it appeared to be a man! This mysterious man towered over him, a long black scraggly beard hung down all the way to his waist, his bald head reflecting the sun blinding the hiker, his green hawk-like eyes pierced through his victim as he stared down upon him, and he wore a grey tank top with what appeared to be a kilt made out of palm tree leaves which frankly shouldn’t even be possible all the way in Maine.

“Wh- Who are you?!” the hiker shouted as he scooted back, holding his stick at the ready.

“Stick Patrol.” the mysterious man grunted.

“Wha… What…?”

“Stick Patrol, sir I have been notified that you have been swinging you stick around and destroying the plants” the man stated “I’m going to have to see your stick license”

“My stick license?”

“Yes, your stick license”

The hiker cocked his head to the side in confusion “I… don’t have a stick license…?” he answered cautiously.

“Unlawful owning of a stick, that’s 3 laws you’ve broken” the man, “Stick Patrol” responded “These are punishable by jail time but since you’re obviously new to this forest I’ll let you off with a warning, of course I’ll have to confiscate that stick”

The stick the hiker held puffed into smoke and reappeared in Stick Patrol’s hand, the hiker left utterly bewildered.

“Until you get a stick license I better not catch you with a stick again” Stick Patrol growled, suddenly he looked up and pointed behind the hiker “LOOK! A BEAR!”

Too enthralled by the mysterious being before him the hiker was not taken in by Stick Patrol’s distraction and simply stared at him as he ran off into the trees flailing his arms like noodles. Moments later the hiker’s bewilderment was broken as a shadow was cast over him, he turned around and found himself face to face with a black bear towering over him, throughout the forest the roar of a bear echoed followed by the scream of a hiker.
Stick Patrol, Casefile #01: Daaaa Bears
Stick Patrol; the mysterious Keeper of the Forest. Is he a man? Or is he some kind of all powerful forest god? We may never know...
