Aside from that we already have 2 artists and a lead writer. (All of which I know pretty well and can assure you they wont flake out on us.)
But our writer needs some help. He's got an overall idea for the plot down but needs help fleshing the rest out and especially with scenario writing. The story will take place post SIII mostly in Harmonia.
If you're interested, we need someone that can handle working on a bigger project and has a good chance of not having to quit.
Please pm or email me at [email protected] if you're interested.
PS. If you guys need some proof of progress I'll post some concept work and when there is some I'll post video's of the engine.

You don't have to be raking in the jack to be in violation of a copyright or trademark. It's just a question of whether or not the holder cares enough to pursue the matter. If you think you can generate something that Konami would want to publish as part of the main universe of Suikoden, you're almost certainly going to infringe enough for them to take notice. If you ignore their cease and desist notice, or they skip right to litigation, the only way you could reasonably hope to win is if you can prove that Konami has abandoned their claim to those rights, and they clearly haven't.
Chances are they won't care, unless you're unlucky enough to be starting this project right as Konami is deciding to ramp up their Suikoden team again. But don't fool yourself into believing that this game would be clean and free from all prosecutable IP violations.
Be realistic guys, the legal point is absolutely not the problem here. No one would bother sueing a poor guy with his computer who did a fangame for him and his friends for free and have zero money to be sued for - hell, it wouldn't even cover the lawyer's fee.
There have been dozens of projects of fan-made Suikoden games, which as such proves the quality of the original ones
But that was never the cause of any fan game shutting down before as far as I know.
Jeeze I never thought I'd get so much negative feedback on this in a "Suikoden fan work" forum. wth?
The trouble is people not wanting to make anything cause they are lazy.
