So I am looking for players for a PbP FATE game in a world that has yet to be determined. I'll be posting the worlds I might be using here.
So first off, an explanation of the system I'll be using. FATE is a rules-light universal system, meaning its designed to be A) uncomplicated, and B) able to be used for basically anything. One thing I know it doesn't do well is horror, or low power situations. Your character is generally going to be heroic. On top of that all of the rules are available free online here: http://fate-srd.com/ We'll be using FATE Core, potentially with some house rules.
Anyway, on to the potential worlds! There are three, one of them is quite developed, one of them is somewhat developed, and one of them will be formed at some point, maybe even being created during the game. I'll be going into further detail about the one that's quite developed later on in the post. They are:
Liln, the world of layers! Its a world where different layers are stacked on top of each other, each one being its own world and connected to the other two. It has modern tech, maybe a bit futuristic at times, and also has magic. Its the developed one. Here's a thing I did on it a while ago:
Liln is a world of layers. A set of worlds inside of worlds, Liln is home to a variety of people and places. From the top layer, a wild and constantly changing land lit by an artificial sun, to the endless dark caverns at the bottom, Liln is a world of adventure. The nations of the world fall in the layers in between, from the ghettos of the innermost civilized layer to the rich gardens and tall spires of the topmost city layer. Most of its modern technology comes from either small areas around the City Layers, or from the endless and ancient forges and factories of the forge layer. Magic here is in a war between two opposing forces, Order and Chaos. Ordered Spirits and Chaos spirits fight over the world’s future, in a endless and balanced cycle important for the world’s survival. On the mortal side is the Church, a layer spanning mega church dedicated to keeping the City Layers safe from the forces of Chaos. Liln is a world of endless possibilities and change, and one where adventures are waiting to happen.
Second is Space Karver. A world in the far future, where the stars have gone out and humanity lives with their gods in space ships. It would be very much a space game, set on the space ships themselves with the potential of going down to a cold planet at some point. There's also monsters, and great gods seeking to destroy all of humanity so they can recreate the universe.
Third is an as of yet unnamed setting, one with a few planes of existance and also home to a great game between gods, which the players would be participating in. The basic set up is that you would be ripped out of your plane of existence and deposited, along with the other PCs, in the middle of an abandoned modern day city, and told to survive and complete some tasks. As for which planes of existence you /do/ get pulled out of, I'm thinking of letting the players define that in their backstory.
In terms of what I personally want to do. The third one is something that I think would be /very/ cool, Liln would be awesome as well, and Space Karver is something I'm fine with running. First pick is number 3, second is Liln, third is Karver.
I'd like to talk to people about this, both in the IRC if you have the time or in post. Don't hesitate to ping me on IRC if you want to talk about it.
