Everyone, all this freeform stuff is nice, but notice, around twenty some posts after my last one, and we still don't have a platform on which to create life! Since I haven't checked this thread for too long (sorry, work) let me give a few thoughts:
- The question of when we start...eh. The Gods will invariably find themselves at war throughout this game, so starting later in the timeline suggests that the results of these wars have already been fleshed out. Furthermore, if we start in the middle, create circumstances that lead to that middle, then decide to change them, our work thusfar is moot. Imagine if I decide to create a quadrapedal beast with a tail and snout, and start by creating smaller monsters that evolve into it. What's to stop Chrystal (because she totally would!) from altering their DNA and turning them into flying spaghetti monsters? It may be wisest simply to start from the beginning, even though we do have infinite power.
- As far as the shape of the planet goes, who cares? Let's just make something! If we want a mobius strip, a disk, well then that's fine, but let's at least come to a consensus so we can create something. I don't care if the dawn of life happens on the head of Earth's penis.
- Sorry to this thread's creator, but it HAS been a while. Granted, he said in his first post he'd be tied up a bit, but we really won't get much done like this. We may want to bail on him. I do care for him personally, and hope that he's alright (especially considering his career), but he is welcome to jump back in at any time.
