Nice idea the whole Egypt stuff with the mumies and sceletons is great. But I guess we need a cool plot that is easy dividable right?
Has anyone played Rick Dangerous on the amiga I guess? Simple jump and run, but he had to avoid lots of traps and some of them were just amazing.
Maybe we should write down ideas that belong in the genre and what should be avoided at all costs
to get it started

To paraphrase Mr.Lemons in his argument to include Nazis: the point is that the Nazis seemed like an organization that would have done these types of archaeological and mythical research during that time (the 30s).
The Nazis were pretty much the enemy back in the 30s and that’s how they were portrayed in the film. I can’t really think of any other enemy to have.
Putting Nazis aside, consider it as an evil military organization seeking some mythological artifact that can be used as a weapon.
We don’t have to have the Nazi symbol everywhere, just one place to indicate who they are is good enough.
To quote Mr.Lemons again: It’s not the 3rd Reich that we want to portray, it’s the military.September 10, 2007 at 10:33 pm #324814September 10, 2007 at 10:36 pm #324816

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.

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.
