cannibals are probably one obstacle to circumvent, hero and/or evil opponents.

I think instead of Nazis we could use some sort of diciple or maybe the vatican itself. Seeking to destroy that thing. Oh and maybe you should google Carcassonne great place to start the quest, and we could also include knights theme and such.

Circumvent? How am I supposed to know what your talking about when you use such odd words?

Oh thanks Lech. I don’t see why they would need to be circumvented though, but thats just my opinion.

simple exlanation:

there are two kinds of problems the hero might encounter

1. the bad guys.

2. things that he has to “cirumvent” (thanks lechnology)

Imagine a storry about a bunch of people who want to climb the everest. The montain is definitely nr. 2, but the 1. is the other bunch of people who want to get there first.

Or spiderman fighting the goblin. Goblin = Bad guy. the cement mixer that will cement him is the obstacle that he has to overcome (cirumvent) before he can beat the bad guy.

See there is a difference.

I don’t think circumvent is an odd word at all…

Regarding the villains of this film, I definitely think some kind of military is the way to go. There needs to be a backbone to the story, something at stake, so it isn’t just the hero/adventurer encountering some minor problems on his way to get whatever it is he’s getting.

I think the “military” should be collecting artitfacts to bring them to some anceint temple to somon a demon or create an army of zombies. Thus, the military will grow the power to take over the world. But the lone adventure with is faithful pilot and dame, stops them from doing it.

Here is a concept of the intro.

Of course it will be done in actual Lego :) .

Okay sorry I didn’t know that word, so the meaning was completely different to me. So yeah I agree with you Ahnt. Oh yeah and this is just my personal opinion but I think you shouldn’t have zombies or demons or stuff like that, because it might be cooler if it was just comical and not serious or whatever. That didn’t really sound the way I wanted it to, but hopefully you get it. Oh yeah and nice job Ratner.

Zombies could be plenty funny (but, not so much demons), I did imagine of the adventurer to be more of a clumsier, comical type of guy, as opposed to clever, rugged Indy.

I have nothing personal against using Nazis or even displaying the Swastika (we should, of course, be considerate about such things), I just feel that Nazis are one element of the Indiana Jones films that we don’t have to borrow. I also don’t see why the main character has to be an archaeologist. What if he’s a works for a museum who doesn’t really care how he gets his artifacts, as long as he gets them (maybe he goes through a moral struggle about this sometime – or, even better, the museum turns out the be the bad guys, intent on gathering riches for personal gain instead of human benefit).

I just don’t think we need to have an established military as the bad guys.

Thought Super contains some elements of the hit TV show Heroes, it’s really actually become a totally different entity, and unique unto itself. Right now Concept Super is feeling more like an “Indiana Jones in everything but name” film than something more original.

PS – I also discourage the use of the whip. That is very much an Indy icon that I don’t think we need to tamper with.

EDIT: The more I think about it, the more I like the scenario of the main character working for a museum with less than honorable ideas. I’m sure something like it has probably been done before, but I think it’s a bit more original that “archaeologist finds lost treasures and kills Nazis.”

EDIT 2: Please don’t feel like I’m putting down this project, I am very interested in it, I just feel we can do better and be more original while still keeping with the 1930s adventurer theme.

I think you mean Concept Adventure. :wink

I agree with you about all the Indiana Jones stuff. As soon as I saw the title of this thread I knew it’d be something like that, and so far everyone’s ideas have only furthered this.

Timothy, could you resize that image or put it in a spoiler? It’s stretching the web page quite a bit.

I agree. Nazis are waaayyy too 80s. The Union of Soviet Socialistic Republics makes for a much more interesting villain. (see sig and avatar)

You’re correct, Nick. I did mean Adventure. I blame my 8-hours of classes.

I reiterate everything I said about militaries not needing to be the enemy.

Now that sounds like an interesting plot twist.
