This November rather than trying to put 50K into one project I've decided to do a couple of things. One of them is getting words in on an RPG setting. For the final result I'm aiming for something like the old staple bound floppy paper books from the 70/80s or similar sometimes perfect bound books from the early 2000s indie/small press RPG boom. Mostly print, two columns of text on an 8.5x11" page, in the 64-128 page range (aiming for the low end but well see). Inspired some by GURPS worldbooks in that it will be mostly description of the setting with only a small fraction of the space given over to anything system specific (for which I'm leaning towards FATE since it's a fairly descriptive system).

For the setting... I'm reaching back to two entries I made for the second 30 Days of Flashfic: Day 6 Write a Pitch For a Final Fantasy Styled RPG and the second half of Day 11 Movie Trailer Style. That setting being the Magical Girl Apocalypse, an alternate Earth which was invaded by magic wielding youngsters from a fantasy world. Aerth was in it's own version of the 50s (or maybe early 60s) when portals opened up and the invaders came through. Their parents had completed taking over the fantasy world and were starting to worry about potentially ambitious heirs who might not want to wait to sit on the thrones, so what better solution than to send them out to conquer somewhere else, preferably far enough away to not trouble their parents.

What I'm looking at currently as an outline would be:

* Introduction
* * History of Aerth
* Aerth Before the Invasion
* * The Invasion
* * After the Invasion
* The Magical Girls
* * Who Are They?
* * * Are They All Girls?
* * * What Do They Want? / Are They Evil?
* * Factions
* Post Invasion Aerth
* * Factions of The Resistance
* * Life After the Portals
* * Magic & Technology
* Major Figures & Places
* Creatures of Fantasy
* The Other World

And probably some random tables for generating stuff because random tables are fun.

Think I'm missing anything? Comments? Suggestions? "Hey where have you been?!" pokes (Mastodon mostly) all welcome.

Jayce closed his eyes and sighed. When he opened his eyes nothing had changed. It never worked even if he'd really hoped wishing would work this time. Giving up he called his Aunt Gladys's extension and watched the little candy striped disc spin while he waited for an answer.



Earlier at mid-day...



Great Aunt Gladys called him into her office then left him standing by her desk while she continued to sift through paper and computerized reports. When she finally waved towards the chair in front of her desk and invited him to sit the clock his augments kept in the corner of his vision said more than a quarter hour had passed.Continues under the cut... )

Post One of my World Building Month project

Setting: The Unnamed/Lost Colony (Setting for the Jayce & Izzy stories, the stories set an undetermined period of time later starting with Hello, and Welcome Back which involves two entirely separate planets)

Faster Than Light Travel and implications thereof in the Unnamed/Lost Colony Setting

Welcome Back opens with the captain of the Williamson's Hope being informed they'll need to make repairs to, "the starboard array," or it will fail the next time they try to make an FTL jump. Clearly this array has been giving them trouble as he's informed that they used up the last of the spare parts the last time they made repairs. Tough luck, but since this is the first FTL ship built by the New Albany colony it's only to be expected that they'll have issues, right? But what's the biggest issue? The Williamson's Hope just isn't big enough. In a followup to Welcome Back which is sitting unfinished one of the locals comments that the Williamson's Hope is smaller than they thought an FTL ship could be built.
