While my RP slowly comes into gear, I had a fun idea, though a bit complicated. A new RP that I definitely can't work on right now, seeing as my SF/DW has only recently begun.
Monster Hunter RP
Ever played on of the games? They came out on PlayStations and PSPs. I played Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, have it as the only game for my PSP. I would have sold my PSP, if I hadn't enjoyed the game so much.
My point is, I think it would be a great Roleplay. The difficulty comes down to a few rather headache-inducing issues for a GM:
Character inventory, and whether the GM keeps track or trusts the player to.
Equipment creation and crafting materials, you could go off of the game's stats and items or create your own, but both ways seem terribly difficult.
Damage counters and the effort it takes to defeat a boss, whether using HP and math, or going "realistically" based on the types of hits and amount of injury.
Considering how long a hunter can last before passing out and being returned to the campsite.
Determining what herbs/bugs/fish/ores you find when you gather items.
Creating a system of quests for players to take, the biggest headache of all.
There's plenty more things to go over; Monster Hunter would probably become a famous and loved RP, but it'd take a master GM with the mind of a mad scientist and an expert memory.
I couldn't possibly do something to this catastrophic effect, so I'll leave the idea out for anyone else who thinks they're capable.
Anyone ever even played Monster Hunter?
