Now, I know a lot of what inspires me that doesn't currently exist in the game. Things like:
—A new base class called the sentai that's a mix between Power Rangers and Sailor Moon. Where the vigilante represents an individual who takes part in polite societal while acting in the shadows, the sentai is an ordinary-but-good-hearted-citizen who gains access to mystical powers that empower her to fight evil.
So there are two Sentai like classes that I have come across.1.Black Flame Studios - Sentai
2. Little Red Goblin Games - Gonzo 2 (can't remember the class name)
There is another one I ran into that was....not good, but its really not worth mentioning.
I found growing up, and even now with my current projects, that all types of anime and kung-fu movies really inspire me.
And video games: Any type of Final Fantasy or even the old game Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, really set up a good world.
The original introduction for me to "fantasy" was the Dragon Lance books, and The Rose Sea which is more swashbuckler style fantasy.
