Mostly all around AG itself. I kind of imagine it as a community castle. How does that sound?

Could we have each of the sub-forums if I'm saying it right to each be a district? It seems fitting.

Ack! Acmed! get back into CT!

What's CT?

Boom Baby! Looks like Acmed and I have further formulated our previously formulated ideas! 

He is making an official chat room for this place here, so it'll be easier to catch people and talk about your ideas so you can also further formulate them! :D He will probably be done by the time I'm done posting, so a link will be provided at the end!

Alright. Well, since nothing is set in stone, I'll post all of the sketches and how we built upon them. There are only 2, so don't worry.

This picture is probably huge, but that's okay.

Alright. In the top left, there was the first idea. To have 4 different towers to consist of the AG community. The middle tower was for Admins and Mods, and the others were for the top 100 kiddies (25 in each tower). Well, after thinking this through a bit, I decided to change that idea because not all of the top ranking peeps are active. So, let me direct your attention to the lower right section of the photo.

I then cut the towers into all of the community forum subsections, Such as Support and Suggestions & etc, then Gaming, then the Courtyard, and finally the Forge. Well, considering we want this in a castle so we can deviate from the WoM map, it turned into the more active forum subsections. Now, I will direct your attention to the middle top of the photo, where the towers are cut into ranks. This brings us to the second sketch...

This is a very basic 3D sketch of my idea.
So, you have your 4 towers, as shown. WEPR and AMW being the front because that is where we are focused. Tavern/Popular Media and Newb/AG3 are in the back because... they aren't important. The Admin/Mod tower is largest because they are the head peeps. The lil AG thing at the top isn't important, I just felt like doodling that bit in.

Anyways, you can see how the ranks go down from King/Queen, Prince/Princess, so on and so forth. That is what Acmed and I have down for ideas so far, at least where the setting is concerned. The main setting, anyways.

We will be posting more today, so do not worry. :D

Also, here is the link to the official chat :)

Please, none of this is set in stone so feel free to post your own ideas and your own sketches or anything of the sort. Drafts, any creative flow you have, it is all welcome here.

Is there going to be anything in the area that isn't the towers but still inside the walls? Like at ground level.

What's CT?

CT is God.

Not to be a party pooper, but can't we come up with something more umm... original? I like the idea of incorporating some elements of the community, but something directly representative of the community has already been done like three times. I think we should have some characters reflect some members of the community (acmed, Moon, etc.), but otherwise have a brand new setting not clearly related to the community (some influence in a bit of an easter egg format would be entertaining).

@EnterOrion, we won't directly write the things posted on here. The AMW building can be renamed the Creation Room, or the WEPR is the News Room.

You guys like that? Should we start by renaming the buildings and start a beginning?

Renaming everything would be on way to set us apart. Maybe we could change the time frame a little too?

I'm not sure if I didn't understand that, or you mixed up words.

This can be the writer's view. It can be on a completely different planet in 2012.
