As I don't really feel it important enough to create a new thread for this I'll just see if I can toss about a few ideas here.
I am trying to work on making a RP for a small group of people on a noticebly smaller community style forum that I really rather not do completely on my own like I did for a previous full scale RP I did with them, hence coming here(nice place btw, glad to see this place finally exists).
So right now I am merely in the process of getting it all started. Such as determining world history, major cast and sects, the general politics, religion, and for a change maybe finding a more online friendly system to use over D&D(It has made things easier than pure freeform, and I do give it a healthy mix of freefoem regardless as it suits my style and speeds things up). At this point, I am mainly focused on the origin of the world/universe thing my potential RP is set up in.
So the bare basics, as this is a rudimentary set-up anyway, is that this will be a story where the world's main problems will not be what I want the PCs to be concerned about and rather a backdrop to their adventures to give them that immersive feel, instead of getting involved with the Originator versus the false creator story that overshadows them they'll likely be trying to discover the true origins of the world on their own or a path that takes them down that direction(not like I have this part figured out yet). The basic Origin theory for the world goes a little like a cross between the creation theory and evolution, but with a lot more... silliness involved(and the Originator character honestly could give a flip if someone believed in it or not, as the universe, time, etc is more or less its playground-having been the spawn that resulted from the big bang rather than the universe proper). Sure I am working on getting a lot of terms and such in(probably will be trying to get help in that area later >.>) that will help make my world feel lived in rather than simply being another world where everyone somehow speaks a language everyone else understands(fixed that issue in the other with a version of the universal translator but well, I am not dealing with a hyper modern or wven cyberized setting this time).
Blah, blah, anyways, I'm really just here to find out the things I would do well considering to add to this fresh from scratch world?
A bit vague I know, but I really don't know what to ask just yet, save I need to ask.
Used to be so much easier in my creative prime... when I actually used my head.
