Secret of Mana
Oddly enough, this has little to do with the remake of Secret of Mana coming out. I am just surprised I have only seen 2 games on rpol dealing with Secret of Mana and its world. Both have not been posted to for years and one has since been deleted.

EDIT: Maybe it is not as popular as I though.

Secret of Mana
The world of Mana is interesting, sure, but what can you do with it other than tell the story that's already been told?  What's the hook?  How do you plan on capturing that bright, colorful, and fantastic atmosphere while retaining the dark and sometimes disturbing edge on the story?

What system do you want to use?

What story do you want to tell and how do you want to tell it?

Secret of Mana is cool, and it has a lot of potential.  So do flour, eggs, butter, and sugar, but they're not that great without the plan to make pound cake.

Secret of Mana
Haha, I guess no one ever thought of baking it then. Idk, I was not sure what forum to post that question in to be honest so I posted it here.

Secret of Mana
If you were the one to run it, the best place would be here, but you'd have to answer Grey's questions.

Secret of Mana?  Man... there's a detour down memory lane.

Same as above - GreyGriffon's questions?

Everybody please leave posting here until you see what Merevel's actually intent was in starting this thread, rather than speculating on that intent.

Re: Secret of Mana
It is ok to lock the thread I guess, I got my answer. I was surprised I never hear anything about the game, rp wise at least, and was curious as to why. It seems the answer is no one had any interest or game ideas.

*shrugs*

I am sorry about the confusion guys, I thought I made my question clear. In retrospect I probably posted this in the wrong forum.
