I love playing all type of RPG games. Have been thinking about making an indie RPG, but based on math battle system. The math mechanics would only require simple add/sub/mult/div. You would be given the answer and need to find the components. e.g. given 15 and "+", you need to find 5 and 10. Just wanted it to help improve math speed and not seem like you are just working on math homework problems. Would adding math mechanics turn you guys off from playing a RPG?

Things like that can only play a small role in the game before it just becomes a Mario Teaches Typing kind of thing.

Yeah there is a fine line that is difficult to balance. But I would hope to err on the side of being more fun than educational, but overall edutainment seems to be quite challenging to get right. Anyone know of a good edutainment game?
