Community Developed RP Setting

Post  Mercutio on Mon Feb 06, 2012 10:55 pm

The idea came to mind a few days ago, and I decided I would bring it up here and see how'd it fare.

Basically what it says on the tin, a setting of our own to RP in, crafted from the beginning by everyone on the site. Starting off, we decide some basic themes, moods, all that. For instance "Are elves arrogant pricks," "Are humans racist pricks," "Are dwarves NOT pricks but totally awesome," etc. Put certain people in charge of racial designs (perhaps even original races), mythology, rules of magic, and so on. Final details may perhaps be decided by popular vote, or whatever we work out. And then, after a certain point or along the way, we start RPing and the world will progressed based on decisions and what not.

I thought it would be a really neat project to take on, not to mention potential fun to be had. It could be put in the Other Writing section.

What do you think Quix?

Edit: Just in case it isn't clear, this is Rothiron.

I'm game, but how do you want to go about doing this? Everyone create tangential races and we try to weave them together, doing editing here and there, or have long epic debates?

Establish a theme to work with, first off. Do we want high fantasy, dark fantasy, or mix? Do we involve steampunk elements, or is strictly medieval? Is magic rare or common? Is the mood of the universe one of daring adventure, or tragedy? Once we get an idea for the world we want, then we set a list of criteria for certain races to meet and let people go nuts. We could go the route of the classic fantasy races, or make our own. As for weaving it all together, I'm thinking that discussions on Messenger might be a good way to work things out.

None of this is set in stone, of course. I'm game for suggestions.

I'm too drunk to comprehend what I just read, but YES.

I will respond with a sober and conscious reply in the morning. GOOD NIGHT

Now that I am sober and have had my coffee, after reading this and fully comprehending it, I will say that it is a great idea. If I am reading it correctly, you are suggesting we create our very own universe with all of its own rules.

I will fully invest time into this, as I think it's a great exercise for the imagination and the creative process. But that also means I'm going to take it semi-seriously, meaning that I'm going to be fairly adamant about having individuals complete work they agree to do. I'm probably getting ahead of myself here, so for the time being, just know you can count on me to put in work on this.

My email is stephan.almendinger@live.com, and it's also my MSN email, so go ahead and add me and shoot me a message!

I've already sent a request on my messenger account, eliterevenant@hotmail.com. As of yet, all I can send you are emails to your account.
