My idea is that the world be split up into sections, all with different themes.

The West part of the world could be all Steampunk technology.

The South could be all Cyberpunk/Super Futuristic with high-tech advanced technology

The East could be all Classical Fantasy-- Castles and dragons, non-modern technology, forests filled with all kinds of unknown species, ect (Think, Jurrasic Park kinda!)

And the North could be Modern with modern technology like we have today, maybe just slightly set in the future, or maybe in the past.

And everyone would be aware of these different parts of the planet, it's not like everyone thinks "Steampunk" or whatever is the only thing out there-- all characters would be fully aware that there are different parts of the planet they are not acustomed to.

If we did it this way, there'd be plenty for all audiences, and we could have epic tales of people traveling across the world to get to different places.

I just added a poll so people can vote.

I like the idea of multiple themes but I don't like the idea of them bieng so rigidly in diffrent area's. I think that some things (like high technology) should be allowed everywhere and not stuck in one area.

If we were to do this wouldn't people from different places move technology around anyway?

Another problem with this is the social implications, why the hell would anyone live in the modern world when they have the option to live in super awesome high technology or have a place with steampunk technology.

I do support the idea of having an area with lots of dragons and dinosaurs and no outside technology, that would be extremly fun Smile

In my opinion I think that we should stick to having a certian level of technology and then having some third world countrys have nearly no technology.

Well I think that if the world all has the same amount of technology, people will get bored.

And the reason people wouldn't be able to move around at their own will, is because I was thinking it would be like forbidden for characters from one theme to travel to the next because it would like..."upset things". That way when characters do travel to different themes it would be forbidden, and there could be forces after them, ect ect.

And we could have different "Realms" too. Realms that only non-humans can get to, that humans are forbidden to go to. Like a Supernatural realm, or a hades/underworld realm, or the realm of the spirits, ect ect. It'd be a fun little situation if a human was caught in there XD

BUT-- I can agree maybe not so diversely split up for the different themes. I can create a crappy little paint map to explain whats going on in my head;

Spoiler:

No, people from different Continents would be able to steamroll others based on differing Technology and Magic capacity...

But if you do what Hex Suggests in his post, i would gladdly support it...

Well, I like Hex's idea too except for 2 things:

1.) People are gonna get bored of the same thing over and over.

2.) We won't be able to please multiple audiences unless we have multiple themes.

one thing that might work is having a clan system, where people from different clans have different Technology...

I support the idea of having multiple themes but dividing the earth in four, maybe not.

Some places could have different themes based on where they are.

Island has no technology - fits the tiki genre.
Country is having a vampire problem - Horror.

EDIT: what if diffrent countrys refused to share technology and there could be spys and stuff - that would be interesting.

Okay I agree on the different themes depending on the location thing, Hex (:

Tiki island- No technology
Metropolis city- Advanced Technology
Big wild forest with dragons- No Technology
Underground cities- Steampunk technology
Under the ocean cities- Advanced Technology
In the sky cities- Advanced Technology


ect, ect, ect! There's going to be so much more but those are my examples.

Good thinking Hex, I support that 100%.

That would work.

I love the idea's you came up with, the steampunk underground citys definatly have a yes from me. That would allow some really cool gameplay.

The ocean citys would be fantastic aswell, along with little sisters and big daddys Razz.

Awesome. So should I make an new thread with this idea and a poll so people can vote yes for it? Since this thread represents an old idea that we've decided not to use.

Yes, or you could simply edit your post.

As there aren't nearly any members on the forum anyway, three agreeing is like the whole forum agreeing and I can move it to final lore.
