So, the draft is up to 22 pages, which is a pretty nice chunk of speed for 8 days or so full time on this project (so... 3 pages a day?)
So far the draft is all mechanics, and mostly spells and monsters. But hey, it's a science fantasy game.
One thing I'm totally still in the dark about though, while I follow inspiration down the magic-monster road, is races.
Since this is science fantasy, and in the style of Japanese RPGs, I can go completely bananas, and I want to.
Still, most of my ideas so far have been closer to lame bananas than awesome bananas.
Eventually, either inspiration will strike, or I'll do the thing I actually get paid for and grind a hole in that millstone with pure force of will.
