The name of the main character in Project Darkma is Eric, and he is a stereotypical, spiky haired male warrior. However, Eric always has bad luck. He has a good heart, but bad luck. He is the opposite of the Master Chief in luck. I’ll give you some examples of the scenarios he *might* get himself into:
His girlfriend gets possessed
The gods don’t like him
He kills enemies by tripping and falling with his sword
He wasn’t able to save his town
He uses a boomerang and gets attacked by it when it comes back
He gets his lips stuck on a block of ice. Then that block of ice turns into the ice queen. And Eric’s girlfriend comes in, sees him with his lips on the ice queen, and dumps him.
Going to look it all over. I probably won’t be good with ideas for your game as it isn’t my area of expertise. But I wish you luck and maybe some others will throw a few bones your way that may give you more inspiration.
