    So, I've thinking about a "StoryNESIOT" that occur in a fantasy earth or even fictional world. The main focus was to "fill the world" by writing short-stories/rps instead of orders. And it would be focused on characters rather than nations. The era would be medieval.

    What you guys think about that?

    Two SpaceIOTs rivalling each other? This could be interesting.

    I won't run it until the influx of running games dissipates.

    If I can find the time, will be posting some stuff later. Something a little more like a classic game (as in a board game, not "classic IOT") than a story

    sorry for the double post but this one's actually relevant


    A World of Remnant is an upcoming game to be hosted by IOT's worst GM. The game will be focused on resource management, cooperation, and defending against the "natural" hazards of a very hostile world.

    Resources must be surveyed, mined/gathered, and then utilized. Resources include the basics such as food, iron, etc. Among this host of normal naturally-occurring resources is a special substance called Dust. This substance is important to all facets of development - from technological research, to infrastructure, to military power. It is naturally found in four forms - flavored to the classical "natural" elements of fire, wind, earth, and air - and have special properties according to each. They can be used creatively even within the context of a larger picture - it is up to you to utilize it as such, though.

    Cooperation and these "natural" hazards mentioned earlier go hand-in-hand. This world will be hostile to its occupants and very much so. You can expect hellish creatures to attack your borders constantly - as such, you must always be vigilant. This is where cooperation comes in. I will by no means force players into teams, but I will not deny the importance of striking deals with your neighbors. It is very unlikely any one player will hold enough resources to keep themselves afloat with the world itself out to get them constantly. Another facet of this that I have not mentioned is the importance of natural defenses. Terrifying as they might be, the creatures of this world cannot cope with some of the extreme environments present.

    Also, if you recognize the source material, you're a little cooler in my eyes. Unless you're mosher or mech or red.

    You've been playing some Endless Space/Legend lately haven't you?

    Is this just a regional game?

    No, it is a world with multiple continents, though it may not *feel* as big as a earth map game, so I'm hoping it won't fall to players not being close enough to interact like several of my games.

    Huh, a RWBY game. Sounds interesting. Will there be things like the Faunus and the Grimm?

    Short answer, yes. Long answer, yes. The reason this post was more than just yes? That's your guess.

    Yes.
