I'm going to type up a full description of what I have planned at some point next week, but for now:

It's basically going to be a hybrid browser-based RPG. It will involve:
- text-based RP elements (dialogue, conversation trees etc, primarily in quests),
- standard traditional turn-based RPG battles (not sure yet if it's going to be realistically possible to animate these),
- tactical FE-like battles (the maps/unit fights will be animated in a similar way to the FE games),
- as well as a number of elements from 4X strategy games which will come into play at later stages of the game.

It's going to start off with FE resources (class/magic/weapon/ability names, maps/sprites etc), but in the future I want to convert it into a unique game if it actually works out. It'll be hosted separately on it's own website, but I plan on integrating various aspects of the game with these forums.

Bsaically, it's going to be a massive project ("Project Empire" is obviously a placeholder title, though I have a couple of proper names in mind). I've been planning it for years, but have finally decided to actually get started on it... I expect to have a beta of the basic features up sometime next month.

Yes, I think I will. My code is sure to be messy as fuck, though, so beware.

Yeah, not going to use any fancy languages. A lot of the features I want to implement will probably have to rely heavily on jQuery/prototype though, and I might look into HTML5 canvas as well.

lol.

So like Fire Emblem Tactics Online, but hopefully better? You seem to be juggling a bunch of things at once.

I'll gladly help write for this.

I need to become a better writer anyways so give me a basic plot you want and I'll start working my way into characters and development.

I'm not sure of how I'm going to integrate an overall story since the game direction will be determined by the players (I'll explain what I mean by this when I post my full plan description), but there will be room for lots of quests of varying length and scope. ie from the Butcher that has a serious rat problem in his basement to the remote mountain village that has a serious dragon problem to the greedy overlord that is hiring mercenaries to invade a neighbouring land etc. There will be lots of opportunities for people to come up with characters/objectives/write some dialogue for these.

They're both going to use the same base engine, plus WotA is going to be a lot simpler (and I already have most of the functions coded, I just need to put together a front end and link everything together, really).

Be nice to have the engine fairly general.

Also are there any coders confident with webdev? Forum full of spriters and writers.

The only reason it would take a few years is if you were to try to learn from textbooks.

Canvas looks pretty useful.
