Okay, since I'm a glutton for punishment, I'm looking at starting a new game using a system that I only recently acquired, Anima: Beyond Fantasy. But first, a few notes for those who haven't played with me before.
A) In ShamshielDF's words: "You're an evil bitch."
B) I don't hold someone's hand through gameplay. I'll help with rules and character creation, but I will only really respond to a player's actions.
C) If you want to interact with other players, you have to arrange it with them. I won't force people together, but my one requirement is that people not kill other Player Characters.
Now, as for the Setting. And I should repeat, this is an interest thread. If I get enough, I'll run it. Those who know the game system, I'm changing a few rules, and predominantly I'm only allowing humans. If I allow other races, I'm building them myself and using my own rules.
To the north is air, the world slowly giving way to mountains, and then to islands of earth and life that float through the sky. If one goes far enough, there is nothing but the endless sky itself, and no earth or stars to guide them. To the south lies earth. Mountains, metals, and gems lie here, slowly growing denser and denser, until one wonders when they've entered the cavernous bones of the earth itself, until there is naught but earth. To the east is fire. Warm tropics give way to deserts, and should one go far enough, they will encounter the endless seas of fire and sulfur that none can truly survive. In contrast, to the west is water. Islands slowly give way to the eternal seas that stretch into eternity.
But in the center of the world is the Witchwood. Oh, not all of the world is so elementally aligned, and there is a huge continent spanning the world, but the Witchwood is at the center of it. A deep, dark forest hundreds of miles across, it is an enigma to all. Some explore it safely, others never return from it. Monsters come forth on occasion, and flicking motes of light slowly drift below its boughs. It is said that there is a tower in the center of the forest that once stretched to the heavens themselves, giving access to the elements from above. But none have seen it in over a millennium, and it is fading into myth. Some say that the tower has fallen, and that the increase of monsters is because some dark force has taken the forest.
On the eastern edge of the Witchwood is the city of Silverdusk. Large, but without some of the prejudices that the cities farther from the Witchwood have. Many craftsmen stay here, for this is the place where the rarest materials in the world could be found. If one was willing to take the risks involved in living in such a region.
