Two Guys Trying Something New
Hmmm, should we sign our name on our posts as well?
Some common fantasy tropes to think about and play with:
- Magic is rare and mysterious (LOTR)
- Magic is said to be rare and mysterious, but somehow every adventuring party has a magic user (All fantasy since LOTR)
- The world is wild and dangerous
- Demi-human races exist, but some are Good and some are Bad
If this is our discussion forum, I think we should put new posts at the top so we don’t have to scroll all the way down. And use the hr tag to add a horizontal line to split posts.
We’ve decided to go with fantasy again. Since this is the first setting we’re making that we intend to play in, I think the setting elements should be fairly conventional. That should make it easier to create any mechanical effects we need (for magic and stuff) and we can still be creative with the history. I also think we should avoid things like time travel and immortality. The Microscope rule book warns against using these elements, since they can compress the history.
