I know I mentioned this in my intro comment, but I figured this deserved it's own thread so I can post updates for y'all.
I'm currently working on a Sonic SatAM RPG and am making fairly regular progress on it. You can follow the work in detail on my developer blog: https://satamrpg.blogspot.com/
I'm looking for ideas on SatAM lore that opens up the possibilities for RPG elements without seeming too alien to SatAM.
- One idea I had is to lean more into the natural world vs technology angle, and have the characters be able to harness elemental powers by way of power rings or "earth crystals" (As was referenced in the Ultra Sonic episode). This is sort of what the Archie comics have hinted at, like when Sonic faced Ixis Naugus as "Ultra Sonic"
- Another idea would be to have a "Mobian Gods" mythos (Also something Archie toyed with). This would involve having archetypes that map onto the main characters (Sonic, Sally, Bunny, for instance) and each character is trained by some sort of old sage in how to harness particular powers associated with a Mobian God (Sonic would be speed, Sally would be intelligence, and Bunny would be strength?)
- I haven't read much of the Sea3on comic, but I assume that there may be other ideas from that as well
