I'm writing a script. I like writing throwaway stories to keep me entertained. There is a series of 5 games I have in my head:
-One where you play as a mercenary and help a prince cross Europe.
-A direct sequel set a twenty years later where aliens invade (yep...) and the prince and his son go to the teleporter all across the world.
-One where you play as a Ninja going the the US to retrieve a stolen treasure from an american criminal
-One where you play through the Crusades, but with the magic elements from the rest
-And one... where you play as a pirate who is forced to steal a forgotten treasure... by marines.
That last one. One Piece all over it. The Warlord concept, magic replacing Logia DFs. a crew of distinct and crazy characters and the whole forgotten treasure thing. Not to mention the names of the characters: Roger Thatcher. Bartolomeo Navarro and Edward Brooks. That Brooks part.... didn't realize it until I just put it here. I both consciously and subconsciously used One Piece as a template. If this shit becomes reality, my ass is sued.
