Lately I've been thinking of developing a realistic RPG. No monsters, no goddesses.. that kind of thing. Which.. could seem boring but I believe it's possible, if your creative enough, to make a very interesting story that's realistic. Or mostly realistic (e.g. in real life you don't find treasures laying around, usually ).
The elements in the story are what lean towards realistic. In other words, you fight soldiers.. Possibly animals.. And not monsters, demons, etc. You don't need magical power to throw fire, you need gasoline or tar or something... Or you need stamina to perform special attacks. However, the story itself might be somewhat unrealistic, because a 15 year old boy usually doesn't take on massive armies.
So what do you all think? Good or bad idea? Any thoughts to add?
