RPG by Question
« on: November 25, 2010, 03:28:39 am »
This will be a community-driven RPG driven by mostly yes/no questions asked by the community, and answered by a roll of the dice interpreted through me and logical interpretation. By answering questions, the action is moved along and the world and setting are created. The action is is broken into scenes, just like a movie, to keep things straight - and there will be the occasional random event to throw you guys a curveball.

So first we need to create enough of a world to begin playing in - we can flesh it out as we go. Remember, its your questions that drive this game.

We should start with global questions. Is it a fantasy setting? Is faster than light travel possible? Is it a grim setting? Is there magic in the world? Does gunpowder exist? Has a genocide occurred recently? Does everyone speak the same language? These sort of questions will help shape the adventure world fairly quickly, and the scope of them is essentially unlimited, as long as they are yes/no for now.

So basically, ask away, keeping them to yes/no questions, and next time I get back I'll go down the list answering them all, and interpreting it as logically as I can or as I see fit. I'd also appreciate it if we didn't get too silly, as I'd like a playable setting that doesn't stray into comedy.

Is magic real, or is it made up the way fairies are?
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Are the faeries highly advanced AIs given corporeal form through the use of nanomachines? Or are they actually just a physical manifestation of complex alien technology, kinda like the Jaaku Empire's "faeries", the things that hatch the monster seeds, in Zettai Muteki Raijin-Oh?


Is the main character a guy? A girl? An asexual?

That's some good yes/no questions there.

By which I mean the opposite of what I just said.

Do any of the posts above even make any sense?




Seriously though, is the world flat?

Are there multiple evil overlords battling for dominance with a fanatical faction of religious zealots caught in the middle?
Quote from: The Evil Overlords Handbook
30. All bumbling conjurers, clumsy squires, no-talent bards, and cowardly thieves in the land will be preemptively put to death. My foes will surely give up and abandon their quest if they have no source of comic relief.

Is this a limitless supply of extra post counts?
