So, I’m in the first stages of creating a new game. This game involves characters from fiction and people from history teaming up to pass various monsters, barriers, or doors. Who the characters are will come later, and for now I’m thinking about the challenges they need to overcome.
I have three levels of challenge. For the first, I’m going with straightforward things. A waterfall or a whirlpool, impenetrable forest, fire, a swarm of bees, possibly even something as simple as a locked door. For the next level, I’m thinking about sphinxes and barrow-wrights, portals into another dimension, puzzles, sticky spider webs, or booby-traps. And for the final level I have shape-shifters and mimics, pestilence, anxiety.
What do you think?
