Re: [DS] A question of interest. (Viral Overgrowth Idea)
Breaking the mold and doing the unexpected often has some pretty awesome results, after all. But two types of RPs I'm just not attached two are fledgling trainer RPs and academy RPs, and I've given them both a chance in the past. If anything, that's a bit more of a turnoff for me than the points. I just feel like I've been in that setting so many times and it just never feels fresh no matter how many times I give it another shot.
I only took a peek at Nexen but it does seem like you put a lot of work into it. Seems intriguing from the little I read, but again, it looks like that's already been well underway.
But yeah, like you said, not every RP is for everyone. I just find taking risks and doing unexpected stuff often does create interesting settings, plots, and mechanics.
