Any type of mod can share their idea(s) here and we can discuss it.

I think we need to make a page with more details on what the world is like/its history, and just generally how it works. More specifics on the setting of the world as a whole.

It shouldn't be too long so that no one will want to read it, but just long enough that people can get a feel for the world. We can do this on either a thread or the front page of the group, I dunno.

I think it should be the front page. I'm planning on completely redoing it soon... We need to talk about details though. We know it's a sort of post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Any suggestions to add?

There are some essential things that need to be answered, like:

What caused the 'apocalypse'?

What are essence pools, and what do essence hunters do with them?

Time - ancient? middle ages? modern? post-modern?

What kind of technology is there(kind of relating to previous question), and what do the gods and magic have to do with the world?

What kind of creatures exist in the world? (ex. is it just normal, like deer and birds, or more close to fantasy like dragons, phoenixes, demons, angels, pegai[plural of pegasus], chimera, etc.)


Just generally so people know what they are roleplaying.

My original thought was that it was medieval/feudal times, but then I saw someone create a character with televisions in their bio, so I've no clue. It may be me, but when I think fantasy, I think medieval.

Questions answered in order:

-Many people got greedy, and they turned into Essence Hunters, taking and abusing the powers of Essence for themselves. Essence is the power of the world, though, so everything started falling apart

-Essence pools are pools of Essence, which is energy in liquid form. Essence Hunters drink the Essence to enhance their abilities and make their magic stronger.

-Well, I can't really give a specific time.... This world has things from modern times (TVs, cities, etc.) but a lot of the atmosphere is a lot like medieval (small towns with cobblestone streets, knights, castles, etc.). So a mix? Sorry, it's hard to explain....

-There is some modern technology, however with the world falling much of it is disappearing, and now you can't find much of it.

-It's a fantasy world with both regular and fantasy creatures. There's dragons, pegai, unicorns, griffins, wyverns, phoenixes, etc. but also things like horses, deer, birds, cats, dogs, etc.

Okay, I got this idea since everyone's characters are different:
-human society as a whole has collapsed
-instead people form small groups of their own
-these different groups have different access to technology
-each group has its own society and manners
-the groups probably have a name to them (like covens or something)

Sounds good to me. Some group types I recommend:

-Groups based upon religion/a god or goddess
-Groups of fighters/knights, sort of like a mini-army.
-Groups of Essence Hunters
-Groups of people trying to find Essence to help the world and keep it out if the hands of Essence Hunters
-Groups of explorers
-Groups formed for no particular reason besides that there's safety in numbers or for a reason/reasons to be decided

Alright, I think I get the gist of it.
Essentially, the world is decaying because of the greed of Essence hunters who steal the essence (or liquid energy) of the world for their own benefit.

Because the world is falling apart, modern technology is becoming rare and expensive, and the methods of making the technology have been lost in the anarchic chaos. A lot of places that once looked modern are decaying, and the methods of construction to build modern structures have been lost, so the world is sort of 'reverting' to feudal times. That's why the world is sort of a mix of two times - it is collapsing on itself, (figuratively) and so old technologies are being reinvented while modern technologies are being lost.

As for creatures, the world is a mix of 'regular' creatures and fantastical ones.

That's what I gathered. Sound right?

And the group idea sounds good to me, although I would suggest that along with the idea that larger countries broke up in the apocalypse due to revolts to form smaller countries. Some with strong governments, some weak. And maybe some countries who even go to war.

Yep! Also, I'm probably going to add in Chip's idea to the world (see the posts before). So technically, the way it's going to be is some people hang onto civilization but many have abandoned trying to stay civilized and live in towns/cities and instead form groups and go out and live together in the wilderness/whatever in that group since it would be easier. And since civilization is collapsing, what I'm thinking is that it would just be easier to get supplies not living in a town since the people in the town probably wouldn't really hunt or go out, causing an acute shortage of supplies in towns, and getting supplies for the towns could be how a lot of groups do business. Does that make sense?

Well, I think they should form/join a group in the RP so they can choose based on the people in the group and what it's really like on the inside of the group, etc.
