Things like experience, upgrading, and leveling don't define an rpg, many (if not most) defense maps include all these elements and many great rpgs don't have them at all. I think it is a ridiculous to automatically place maps with elements like these within the confines of the rpg genre. Eventually the only annexation to the role-playing specification that Lethal and I decided to give is that it must be a story-driven map. That is where Crash/Xmen rpgs fail, they provide a quick setting and a nonsensical objective; there is nothing in between and nothing else driving the provided setting forward and expanding it; the action in between is meaningless and near directionless.
So that means that Build-A-Ship Workshop wouldn't be allowed here. Damn.
Yeah unfortunately BASW is not about story almost at all. I would say let's try to make characters and stuff but I think if BASW is not allowed I would rather just quit the contest because making characters means requiring commitment which would make the map a bit less fun imo.
Then again it could be extremely awesome, especially if we used ground units instead, like a goliath, a siege tank, um a hydra, a dragoon, an archon, and say an ultralisk.
What do you think tazz?

@clans heh
OMG it's not that hard of that big of a deal!

I can add a story if you stick my name on it.

Hmm, yeah I guess I overreacted. Is the story we have now (read beginning paragraph in the thread) good enough for the contest?
Without a heart-wrenching story it seems we won't have much chance of winning, I think. Then again but two emos together.. lol No i won't be emo for much longer I don't think.

Teraunce, the ^

I'll join as soon as i get my comp completely fixed. It's time to dust off an idea i've had for awhile now. It's a sequel RPG, however, I can't remember the name of the map to which it is a sequel too, only that it began with an "L", had a ":" after the first word, & the part after the colon was "The Lost Caves". I doubt many of you have played it since i stumbled on it in the old SEN database through sheer luck due to it being very old when i joined SEN. My other map is most likely discontinued so don't expect updates on it. There's not alot more i can do with it. It's open source incase someone wants to use it for materials.

Edit: clarified things a bit
Edit2: Map's name will be Lythia2: The Demon's Lair. [WIP]

Okay, it turns out that I don't really have time to work on BASW, my mod, The Battle of Breach, and Archmagic at once. I'm not really that into Archmagic, and I wantto get the other things done more, so I'll be dropping out of this contest. Sorry DeVouReR.

(If anyone's wondering, I'm restarting tBoB from the begining, because most of the characters have problems. Like, there's waaaaaaaaay too many people who can't counter air, and a bunch of them are pretty "wishy-washy".)

EDIT: Just to make this clear, I'm still doing Build-A-Ship Workshop for this contest.

no, i didn't make that, but i have a small alpha of a sequel to it that i was planning because i felt the story ended too soon. Oh, & thanks for reminding me of the name. The sequel is entirely unofficial since i don't even know who the author of the map is.

I think a year suffices what this contest exactly needs. I think if SC2 comes out and this competition goes as planned, we will defintley leave SC1 with a bang. Imagine all these good RPG's out at the same time? crazy...

ps.
