Hi. I recently came up with an idea for an RPG, a Wizard101-based one, since, at at the moment, there aren't really many Wizard101 RPGs in this forum.
I wanted to ask if this idea will be a good idea, since I don't want to embarrass myself on my first RPG. So, here's the plot:
The Spiral is in ruin. After many years, the Spiral's many worlds have become filled with chaos and destruction, with all sorts of creatures from every school invading the land. Each school is against each other and wishes to rule the Spiral, and they would do anything to become the dominant school. The elemental schools have formed an alliance to combat the spiritual schools, but they vowed that the alliance would evaporate as soon as the spiritual schools were defeated.
Myth has allied with Death to take over the Spiral, but both schools secretly know that they'll betray the other when the time is right. Life, on the other hand, has remained neutral and sees all schools as evil and power-hungry. Balance is also neutral, though a large majority choose to ally with the elemental schools, and some have left to join Life.
Wizard City has many territories owned by different schools. Unicorn Way is controlled by Life, the Sunken City and Nightside by Death, Firecat Alley by Fire, Triton Avenue by Storm, Cyclops Lane by Myth, and Colossus Boulevard by Ice. Ravenwood has been mostly destroyed, with Bartleby nothing more than a giant burnt stump, his bark now black and his leaves gone. The Spiral Door is still working. The Commons is also in the same position, Headmaster Ambrose's house has been destroyed and nobody goes there from fear of being assassinated by any spies lurking about or other threats. Krokotopia is ruled by Balance and the elemental schools, Marleybone has been taken over by Myth, Mooshu is controlled by Life, Dragonspyre is controlled by Death, Grizzleheim is contested between Storm, Life, Death, and Fire, and the other worlds have destroyed the Spiral Doors in their world to prevent others from coming in.
So basically, the plot is that each school is attempting to rule the Spiral, and the RPGer will get to choose out of the seven schools, (I have left out the Sun, Moon and Star schools), and their job will be to wage war against the other schools (unless allied with said school, like Myth and Death for example) and do tasks for their school.
What do you think? I'd like some constructive criticism also on how it could be improved if you have any ideas, and if you looked at the plot, would you join this RPG?
