Some of you may be aware that me and ColdFusoin are going to make an Escape Velocity: Override RPG, in the same style as Realmz and Exile. We shall achive this with the wonderful tool Coldstone ( (url="http://"http://www.beenox.com")www.beenox.com(/url) ). This is such a wonderful tool, I started making the game tonight, and I already have some of the interface done! Don't worry though, the game won't be a pile of crap just becuase it's being created in a WYSIWYG programme, I belive that it will be an extremely good RPG (but then I would say that as I thought up the idea:P).
Now the only problem is (don't laugh), we haven't got a plot. Does anyopne have any ideas about a possibly story line? We'll be including more than one I think, as well as a mission computer type thing were you can get little quests to complete. I think the game will be less like Zelda 64 and Final Fantasy series and more of a free roaming plot were the next path isn' exactly clear until you get deep into the game. Even then there will still be smaller quests and stuff in case you get stuck and bored. If you could think of any cool EV style plots that could fit in with the game engine, then that would be brilliant and you would get high praise in the credits.
We would also like some graphic artist that could help with game sprites sich as NPCs (non-player-characters) and scenery and terrain. The game is going to be predominatly 2D, so no complex 3D stuff is needed, just some good Photosop skills. Any other support such as mission writing, proof reading (once we have a script) and testing (once we have a game ;)) would be great asset to the game.
Any help would be much appreciated.

How is it possible to make an EV RPG???
EV is a sci-fi space game. How you are going to make an RPG of that thouroughly confuses me.
Gavin Hardy, is my name. Don't diss it.
Heh, there already is one. And it does work.
How do I know? Because I created it over a year and a half ago. A while back it was passed on to UE Crusader, and he and others run it here: (url="http://"http://uevrpg.iwarp.com/")http://uevrpg.iwarp.com/(/url)
There's also an EVO RPG that I created jeez..a long while ago, been more than I year, just about. Its at: (url="http://"http://www.oxy-soft.com/uevo/")http://www.oxy-soft.com/uevo/(/url)
Both have good qualities. They're both text based, and if played right, fun as hell.
As for this project, i wonder if it will ever get off the ground. But if it does, you have my blessing.
Gav, I'm making it in the style of Realmz and Exile, two of your favourite games I believe. Note that RPG's don't have to be set in ye olde times, they can be futuristic as Final Fantasy 7 sort of proved. The game will be set in the EV universe and will be significantly better than a text based game...
Once I have some maps done, I will post screenshots.

I'll give a miss on the crazy sig this time. Only one competition:
All the races of EV, united vs. All races of EVO, united=
Who knows? Let's make a plug of it...
