1Default On The Theme on Fri Apr 09, 2010 7:13 am

I've just read the thread from Bunnay about the ideas regarding the multiple themes, and I had an idea. There was mention of a Steampunk soceity, a Technological one, and a magical one. And I had a thought; what if all this technology is powered by a single source, like in Final Fantasy 7?

This might be a catalyst for events; perhaps each society drawns upon the energy differently, making it less potent for the otehr societies?

Just a thought.

I like this idea too. A thread of consistency between the genres that can potentially tie stories together.

Putting technology in a medieval environment has never really caused trouble before. Take World of Warcraft as an example.

Well I've never played Final Fantasy but your idea sounds interesting (:

Some type of crystal can be thrown into any genre and work as a power source. Just give it a fancy name

True, but that idea has been done to death so many times that it's lost it's touch. The crystal power source thing is more of a cliche now. I think it would be really neat if we could come up with something not thought of before.

It is pretty cliched.

How about a magical liquid that needs to be tended for every day or it'll evaporate. It could be a sort of obsession of the people.

This is a bad idea. Read my post under discussion to find out why it doesnt work, if all of the sections were at the same kinda sorta era if you know what im saying it might work but while that is in final lore its a no

Perhaps a metaphor for Oil? The Steampunk and Techno societies use it at an industrial rate, but it's running out, causing them to fight eachother and the fantasy people who have some sort of source? Perhaps it's the blood of some creature that's becoming increasingly rare?

Thats pretty insightful I like that.
How about theres an animal that is in a cage underground, the blood from it is magical (that signifys the pain caused by oil).
The animal is dying to represent that oil is running out.

So, several animals underground, each one being exploited differently, i.e. the magical society keeping it alive as long as possible, the steampunk one bleeding it each month for a certain amount that it can replace, and the tech one using weird nanobots to take out the blood?

I think underground societys should use steampunky things.

I do like the idea of the magic/power source being an actual oil. That is easily agreeable to all sections. An oil that just exists under certain conditions. The rest sounds like plot ideas for an actual rp thread.

Jellyfish, I think thats actually a fantastic idea!
That'll stop people using magic for everything and more powerful spells will lose more of the oil.

I don't much like it, it just takes away part of what makes magic so...magical.

Perhaphs the oil doubles as a highly addictive drug that enhances natural abilities? Like in Bioshock, you know...

...Maybe not, but I'm just brainstorming.

crystals should be a main power source

I don't think Oil should be a magic power source. Oil is technology, magic is seperate entirely from that. They are two worlds that don't connect at a level like that.

Its not oil, its a glowing liquid that represents oil.
Hallow, I love that idea. In its raw state it makes you feel good but it can be manafacuted into continous suppluments that give you abilitys like telekenisis or super strength or freezing.

If you take too much (3) you get physically dependant on it and you need to take it otherwise you go cold turkey and die.

My posts are 69! hahahahahahaha

I still think Technology and magic should be more seperate.

Hm, steam from underground thermal vents, perhaps? Essentially geothermal energy.

Underground cities could be built around large ones, where the steam released would be used to generate the power grid.

The cities could also use this magical power source liquid as backup energy, if it is included.
