I often wonder where folks get their ideas for various things. Not just within gaming, but in general. In some cases there is a direct link and you can easily see where it is they would get one idea from something else. In other cases, this is not always true.
I am going to be including in this blog my points of Inspiration as to what led me to parts of the game as they have been known. A lot of my inspiration is drawn directly from other games…so HBRPG in some respects acts like a patchwork blanket, pulling in different pieces from other systems or even genres of games.
Other points, however, are just heavily influenced by other factors in the gaming world, some are improved upon, and some could argue that other aspects are bastardized to a detriment.
However you may feel, I believe it is still important to see how different ideas come to life and find their way in to something. These posts will be titles along the lines of “Inspiration: KeyPoint”, where KeyPoint is the topic of which I am speaking. These will also be further identified by using an Inspiration tag, so if anyone cares enough to search via tag can easily find them all in one place.
Be well all.
