Hmm... I'm just going to put my opinion about the whole evil thing.

Does there have to be evil people? Or can the reader decide for themselves who the evil people are? Whoever is greedy may be considered evil (Essence Hunters) or something else.

I mean, we're creating this based on factions and traveling groups, right? So perhaps there is tension between groups.

I was reading something about creating characters a while back, and it seems like common sense to me now, but whenever creating 'good' and 'evil' characters, remember that the characters themselves are not good or evil. That is simply your perception of them. Evil characters have their own intentions. They aren't evil just to be evil. A good example would be Hitler. He was not evil just to be so, but rather because he thought he was doing the right thing. Thieves don't really steal just to steal, but they steal for their own benefit. (typically)

So if you guys really want something 'evil' then how about maybe warmongering countries, demonic gods, or a different race, like orcs perhaps?

Just my two cents.

(Also, sorry, I was busy today so I couldn't do much.)

Hmm, interesting. What could be considered evil for one might not be evil for another.

But if it has to be a concrete evil, then maybe something far more powerful than mortals should exist. It's either that or a rouge element in society threatening the delicate balance of power that exist in the world.....

I think in this world, there are no definite "evil people" its just people with different ideals, trying to survive in a crazy world. The closest thing to "evil" would be the essenceless, but their just insane, dying, trapped creatures and don't really want to hurt others. (I'm not sure if they want anything at all.) So maybe we should have a page about the main factions that the story is about, with explanations. Have them all be morally gray too.

Aye, that would be for the best...unless someone happens to make a character with a moral ambiguous conscience. The moral compass would be totally broken by then.

Soooo... we should definetly come up with some different groups then. They should all have core principles and have some bad things in their culture. (stuff that other groups would classify as "evil")

Hmm. We are going to need to set up a general area for where most of the roleplay takes place.

We could just say that it takes place on Veialle, but that is far too general. Perhaps we need the names of some countries, or perhaps it takes place on the frontier. Lots to think of still.

As for groups, I'm thinking that we create a thread for that.

I'll just compile some ideas for groups I have:

Some main ones would be countries/governments and the people of the villages.

More specific ones, maybe clans of Essence hunters? Mercenary groups, scouting/recon groups, cults(necromancers/demonic worship?), bandits, groups of sorcerers/wizards, and of course the essence-deprived creatures.

Larger groups maybe of different races, orcs, elves, and the like?

Evil gods or demons? Magic creatures - dragons, phoenixes, pegai, etc.?


Then we can make names for any of these or other group ideas that we like to implement them into the world. Like I said earlier, we would need to pinpoint a more specific location of Veialle to be able to know where we are roleplaying and where these 'groups' would be based.

Also, are there any other dimensions in this Veialle? Or just the planet?

I think the groups are much smaller than that. At most, one would be maybe a few hundred people. (because society entirely collapsed)

As for the area, how about either it taking place in the ruins of a specific country or having it take place on a continent.

I'm no sure if there are non-beast-type magical creatures

I'm not sure if having gods would work, wouldn't they fix the planet? (unless theyre more like nature spirits)

I think it would get way to complicated if thete was more than just veialle. Maybe we should kick off the rp before adding other worlds.

Gods are a no go, in my opinion. Former nature spirits maybe...but we must have a consensus on that one.

Other worlds should wait. We need to fill out and strengthen the current world first before doing any other. (RP in Veialle first~^^)

Groups would vary in name maybe. Also may be named based on purpose or ideology. We could look for examples from Metro 2033, The Last of Us, and other similar media.

Groups can vary in size...like a sensible post apocalyptic world. Like numbers would vary. Most would be like a group of 20 people at best. The well established ones would be by the hundreds but not close to a thousand.

Non-Beast-Type Creatures could be present but...that may be overkill. However, a consensus again must be reached.

That's what I think about all this...

Also I was thinking about the different ways that Humans use essence. Is it just an energy source?
----
Come to think of it, we shouldn't have non-beast-type creatures because then people would want to play as them. Character creation would have to be re-done because there are different races.
----
Some ideas with different types of groups I have:

- Bandits
generally small; steals from other groups

- Essence Hunters
find essence and sell to highest bidder

- Urban scavengers
live in ruined cities and find old supplies

- Any type of cult/organized religion group
basically just a group that is under one unanimous religion

- Tribal nomads
lives in the wilderness; hunter/gatherers

Oh yeah...

How about the gods are elemental (cause your character is darkness)

---------

My current theory on the gods work:

-they worked together to make the world

-during which, they pored their collective energy into the existence of essence

-I'm also pretty sure that they're stuck in heaven or something
