Seriously though, is the world flat?
and is it on the back of a giant space turtle?

Are you even going to answer any of these questions?

Is magic real, or is it made up the way fairies are?
50/50 - NO, magic is not real. It is made up like faeries.

Is the main character a guy?
50/50 - YES, he is. I ignored the rest of your questions because, while intriguing, they were not yes or no questions and they were too specific. The setting has to grow and come naturally.

Is this the only accessible plane of existence?
50/50 - YES, it is.

Will there be steam-punkish techno-magic?
50/50 - YES, there will be.

Can I fly?
50/50 - YES, the main character will have the ability of flight in one way or another. Probably should've gone with unlikely for the odds for this one, but what's done is done.

Can you change the nature of a man?
50/50 - NO, apparently you can not. This is a deep question, best one that's been asked yet, and it's interesting that the result is no. Will have to see how this is interpreted.

Lobster people. That is all,
I'm gonna assume that this is "Will there be lobster people involved somehow?", in which the answer, at 50/50 odds, is NO, which is unfortunate.

Is "Lobster people" even a question?
Defs not.

Am I a sexy beast?
50/50 - NO, apparently the main character is not a sexy beast. Gonna interpret that as not particularly attractive.

Do any of the posts above even make any sense?
Some.

Seriously though, is the world flat?
50/50 - YES, the world is flat. Huh. Interesting.

Are there multiple evil overlords battling for dominance with a fanatical faction of religious zealots caught in the middle?
50/50 - YES, apparently there are. This question was a little specific-ish but we need some structure, and since the answer is yes it provides some sort of foundation for the game. Interesting.

Is this a limitless supply of extra post counts?
Mayhaps.

and is it on the back of a giant space turtle?
Unlikely - NO, indeed it is not.

Are you even going to answer any of these questions?
No, I will never answer them.





Okay, what did we work out from our first question session?

ABOUT THE SETTING
  • Magic is not real, though steam-punkish techno-magic is.
  • There is only one accessible plane of existence.
  • The nature of man is unchangeable.
  • The world is flat, not round.
  • There are multiple evil overlords battling for dominance with a fanatical faction of religious zealots caught in the middle.

ABOUT THE PROTAGONIST
  • He is a male.
  • He has the power of flight in some shape or form.
  • He is not particularly attractive.

Okay, so what we know about the setting seems to imply that it is at the very least post-Renaissance in terms of technological advances, including some "magic" in the guise of technology, possible in a steam-punkish form. The world is flat, and this is the only accessible plane of existence. There are multiple evil overlords which fight for dominance, and a fanatical faction of religious zealots are caught in the middle. That situation seems to lend credence to the fact that the nature of men is unchangeable.

About the protagonist, we've established that he is male, has the power of flight in some form - depending on the setting, this can vary from the superhero-like ability of flight, or wings, or just being a skilled pilot or something. He's also not a looker - he may be average, or he may be ugly.

Oh, and there are no lobster people ANYWHERE.



More questions need to be asked. Open topics are the nature of these evil overlords, the nature of the zealots, the religion that they are fanatical over, and fleshing out the world, both geographically, culturally, and such. Not enough of a framework to even start play has been established yet, so once we pin that down, we can get moving.

Good god, please tell me me you've read Prachet?

Is the world a desolate wasteland?
In a game like this you cannot win, only lose more slowly

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

Are people able to travel to other planets? (I'm not sure if planes of existence covered this)

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.

Will you stop asking overly complex and specific questions please? I think you're not quite grasping how this is meant to work.

What do people value the most [as in, do they use the gold standard or maybe a variant of it like silver or rare seashells]?
