Lately I've been interested in the Monster Hunter games. And while I have never played a single MH game in my life (curse my lack of the correct consoles and my inability to read Japanese), I would like to take a spin on it in the form of a roleplay. My idea is simple: Make the monsters themselves playable.
The world of Monster Hunters is vast and dangerous, and filled with excitement. Sadly, the magnificent world is ravaged by an ongoing war between humans and monsters. Most people say that humans are the ones that deserve to win, and even then they are gaining more leverage over the monsters every day. But there's always two sides to every story...
Here we examine the lives of the monsters. What do they think when their food supply decreases? What do they think about the dwindling population? What do they think of the humans who are encroaching on their land? Well, we're about to find out. Here, we take a great step in the way of monsterology, and watch the very lives of these monsters play out, both young and old. We watch as life goes on in the eyes of a new form, and see what it is they do to survive.
I was also thinking of throwing "new" monsters into the plot, so we could make it compatible and more fun for people who have never played Monster Hunter, like me. So, who likes this idea and who's with me? I would like to kick this off ASAP, so if this doesn't gather enough interest, I'm sorry to say I will lose interest.
