I am planning a mega-RPG where characters travel ANYWHERE they want in Middle-earth. However, I will need some mechanics planned out.

Abilities

Every player will start out with 10 Ability Points, and can place them in the following sections:

  1. Strength: Extra points here make your character stronger, able to wield heavier weapons and lift heavier things.
  2. Health: Extra points here make your character less likely to be injured, able to sustain heavier injuries and survive illness.
  3. Stamina: Extra points here make your character less likely to grow exhausted, able to continue fighting for a long time.
  4. Charisma: Extra points here make your character more likely to gain alliances with non-player characters, able to talk his/her way from violence.
  5. Agility: Extra points here make your character more agile, able to dodge more often and run faster.

Species

Each player must choose a race, each one already with a positive and negative to abilities:

  1. Man: +1 Stamina, -2 Charisma
  2. Elf: +3 Agility, -1 Health
  3. Hobbit: +1 Health, -2 Strength
  4. Dwarf: +3 Strength, -2 Agility
  5. Orc: +2 Stamina, -3 Charisma
  6. Goblin: +3 Agility, -2 Strength
  7. Uruk-hai: +3 Health, -2 Charisma
  8. Wraith: +2 Stamina, -3 Health

Classes

Each player must also choose a class, each one giving advantages to different situations:

  1. Warrior: +2 Strength, -2 Agility, more effective with melee weapons, can wear heavier armour.
  2. Archer: +2 Agility, -2 Stamina, more effective with ranged weapons, unable to wear heavy armour.
  3. Mage: +2 Stamina, -2 Health, more effective with magic, weak with melee weapons.
  4. Guardian: +2 Charisma, -2 Strength, more effective at gaining alliances, stronger against Evil units.
  5. Spy: +2 Stamina, -2 Charisma, more effective at eluding enemies, weak at hand-to-hand combat.
  6. Healer: +2 Health, -2 Agility, more effective at healing self and allies, weak with weapons.

Non-Player Units

As you travel Middle-earth, you may encounter units, or fightable players, that you can either converse with or attack. If you attack and kill the NPC (Non-Player Unit), you will have the chance to either walk away or look around the dead unit's inventory for items you might want. This is a good way to get armour without wasting money. You might also find money on the dead unit, too.

Gaming

Okay, so basically this is how you role-play your character. The number one rule is to be VERY SPECIFIC. Simply saying smacks Orc with sword isn't going to do. You have to tell specifically which enemy you are attacking, where and how, and with what weapon. Every little thing counts.

Affliations

If you are a good character (Good Man, Elf, Dwarf, Hobbit) or evil character (Evil Man, Orc, Goblin, Uruk-hai, Wraith), you cannot attack characters of that affliation. However, if you are neutral, you can attack both good and evil characters, as well as neutral ones.

Character Setup

And finally, this is how you put in your character:

Name: Of course, the name is all yours. Choose your own.

Gender: Male or Female, your pick.

Species: Choose. Choose wisely.

Personality: Be specific and descriptive on that.

Class: Choose wisely.

Abilities: Out of your ten points, distribute them here. Keep in mind your class and species gains and losses.

  • Strength
  • Health
  • Stamina
  • Charisma
  • Agility

Appearance: Be descriptive and take your time.

Weapons: You start off with any one primary and secondary weapon. A primary would naturally be a polearm or bow, and the secondary a sword or dagger, but it's your decision. Unless you say differently, the primary weapon will be the weapon you always use.

Armour: Choose one light piece of armour.

Clothing: Only choose clothing that will not give significant protection, like the armour available for purchase.

Inventory: You will have to buy other items in order to fill this.

Affliation: Good, Evil, or Neutral. Remember that if you are good or evil, you cannot attack other good or evil characters respectively.

Starting Point: Choose where to start here. Make sure it is appropriate enough for your character.
