How to make a JRPG! Also, LR discussion

Alright, let's get to the worthless part:


So I heard that this game is like an ARPG. If that is the case, is it confirmed of how it would function?


Now for the slightly better but still worthless part:


How to make your very own unique, not at all bland JRPG story!


CHARACTERS:

1. Create a JRPG hero with hair spiky enough to destroy inflated balloons. Bonus points if he is silent. However, if he is not, give him some unrealistic ideals to fight for.

"I want a world where everyone can agree with one another. I know it may sound hard, but it's actually easy to have about 20 different people to agree with one another! We just have to fight these random monsters to prove it!"

2. Give out a love interest. Here are some suggestions:

a. A complete ***** who probably has nothing going for her except for looks and kitchen work ("motherly" tsundere)

b. An imbecile who probably gets F's at grade school at a daily base. She has no personality whatsoever, and is your generic cardboard cutout childhood friend. Later, give her some powers or whatever (mary sue)

c. A typical "calm" female who also has no personality. She has little to no clothing, and is a true warrior. Despite that, she has no scars... (porn star)

Pick either a, b, or c. Once you picked your love interest, proceed to insert the other two anyway. Most people select B.

3. Create a perverted character. This is so you can justify the free *** material on otherwise crappy female characters.

4. Make someone who whines every second and tries to portray him/herself as a badass. Later on, make him/her betray everyone.

If he/she says something like:

"Sometimes, all this fighting seems pointless...."

You're doing it right.

5. Insert a trash escort character with the ugliest design you can think of. People, for some reason, will think this thing is cute.

We call this the mascot of the JRPG.

6. Main antagonist

This one is easy. Just give him a motive to destroy everything on sight, and wallah: antagonist

Here's an example:

A boy lost his sister. Despite the fact that they busted their asses off to solve a conflict, the sister dies, and the boy goes on to insert an even BIGGER conflict, because that is obviously what his sister wants.


You may add more antagonists. Be sure to make them sympathetic too. For example, a woman slaughtering and drinking the blood of everyone in a city will be justified because she lost her husband.

Alright, we got our cast. Time for the story!


STORY:

Intro:

Your spiky haired hero gets introduced to his love interest (or her if you're into that sort of thing). So, after this, the town gets destroyed by an antagonist of some sort.

And thus, the adventure begins!

Body:

Ok, so they go to some towns/dungeons, solve some garbage, leave, and the process repeats for about 30 times. Occasionally, there would be conflicts against antagonists. Also, when the heros, who probably can't make a ****ing cheese sandwich without turning it to soup, almost die, a random light comes down and teleports them somewhere else, because everyone loves anti-climatic subplots!

Climax:

So, now, something horrible will happen, such as a planet being destroyed. Now, like any logical JRPG, this is the time for side quests! Ah, yes, the sweet scenery of swimsuits, coliseums, and "funny" joke weapons knowing that your world will end in about a few hours is good for a climax.

Ending:

Antagonist dies. World rejoices. Love interest marries hero. End


Any questions?

Yes, one.
Why do you hate 'Tales of' series?

I haven't played much of FF, aside from 6, 10, 12, and 13.

From the looks of it, 13-2 was awful, story wise.
10-2 as well.
