So why exactly did I start this project?
Well I treat this as an exercise in world-building, narrative-construction, map-making and content delivery.
I use the Foundry as a tool to prototype certain narrative ideas or gameplay-mechanics for future projects. The Foundry is intuitive and easy to use while also being very simplistic, this makes it necessary for me to limit myself and plan what I want to achieve within the set framework.
Some solutions are simply not available in the toolset so it is an exercise to work with limitations, which is relevant to every project.
Another thing I use the toolset for is finding out how to deliver content that is both challenging and fun without being tedious and "grindy". I want to find out how narrative flows best and how it meshes with gameplay, specifically combat.
If I design an encounter, would I rather have it be a single tough battle or a slaughter-fest with many weak enemies? Should combat be frequent but meaningless or rare but meaningful? When do I use which?
These are the questions being tested.
Of course additionally I want to learn how to use triggers, structure a narrative in game-terms and deliver a good story to boot.
