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

I mean in regards to the WoM. Although, I'm not sure that was you're goal, to set us apart from it.

It can be on a completely different planet in 2012.


How long are the days on this planet? How long is the year? What is the terrain like? Oh, the possibilities.

Unless of course, that was just you stating a idea that we could go with, and not an actual: "This is what we will do"

I meant in the writer's opinion. Whichever he wants to do it. Does he want to do this, or that. Or do you want to pre-plan where/when?

No real opinion, I was just thinking out loud.

Okay, so this is what I got. What do you think:

In the land of ______ is Castle _______(whatever it'll be called), home to some of the best warriors in all of _______. Each warrior is superior in its ranks.

So, that's just the introduction. What I was thinking was that each person in this castle is a warrior who fights for the land. Each rank will represent what kind of crime you take care of (Surf: Bounty Hunting. King: Dragon Slaying). Do you guys like this idea? I think it would be a great start to great plot.

Speaking of plot, once we have this whole setting thing down, we get down to characters and plot.

I know, but somebody needs to ask the questions so we get some thoroughly thought through ideas. All group things need a devil's advocate, if only for the sake of generating other ideas that are potentially better.

Do you guys like this idea?


No. Too static. I think it would be best to create a character with their own profession, rather than just using ranks to determine it.

home to some of the best warriors in all of _______.


How about a big city? I mean, great warriors are only great in comparison to lesser warriors and peasants.

In my personal opinion, I think a setup similar to feudal Europe (obviously not Europe though, lol) would be a great place to start.

Maybe they moved into the castle from the big city.

Can I join in on this endeavor? I'm horrible at pretty much everything, so wherever you put me I can do some damage.
