Thanks Another idea I had (ironically, because I couldn't come up with ideas) was to start simple in one of the apps you mentioned, incorporating only one aspect at a time. Kinda like several prototypes of the same thing, incorporating new stuff as I learn more and more. Do the engines you use support different classes (Knight, Mage, etc.)? Different battle systems? I'll probably check out RPG maker and see what can be done there, start humble, and read read read tutorials.
