    Just to let you people know, if a game has a World Editor like WC3, you can make many games from puzzles to actions and RPGs. That way, people can enjoy themselves from other people's produced maps and make more in the future.

    So, WC3 may seem like a Strategy game, but thanks to its WE, you can make TDs - never before, RPGs - never before all thanks to WE and play them with WC3 as a custom map.

    I think a game people would like, in WC3 would be something like Pyramid escape, as it has many challenging mini games people will like.

    No, I'm going to use my own engine, but a WE sounds like a fun project. Also, the "command your own army" thing won't be able to play in. See, the main character has had everything someone can possibly posses taken away from him (ex. Family, Kingdom, emotions, *cough*Mortality*cough*) and so his own army is really being used against him. Which is also why there will be a vengeance meter. Won't give away much on that though.

    As for the apocalyptal stuff. You don't really learn of what the character has to do with Heaven and Hell untill end. I'm going to keep the religious references to a complete bare-bones to not turn a perfectly good game into a religious topic. Also, the fallen angel... I haven't decided if you'll know if he's an angel or not untill later on. He'll kinda have Cloud's "keep-to-himselfness" so you won't know much about him; just that something was promised to him and that is why he is evil. So he may or may not have wings. If I do give him wings I will defenatly take into consideration Formula1's suggestion.

    Before any more suggestions note that the main character will be on his own the whole game. Not command any armies. Can pick up items. Interacte with the enviroment (Throw spear, climb vines, water burns). Have very few spells. Accesorize armor and weapons. More on this later

    Honestly, to some people it may be, but some may not find it intersting or " good " at all. So that is why, mappers should create a few maps, each one a different genre.
