Dear people of /tg/ I ask for some aid. I'm looking at the next month before me and see myself low on money so most of my time will be spent at home. Though that kinda sucks. It provides a golden opportunity. Other than work, I have nothing to consume my time, thus I'm going to world build.

What I'm asking is if there is anything you have or haven't experienced and want to.

ITT:Things you want in a DND world.

Morality that makes sense OH WAIT NEVERMIND

How about no direct involvement of pantheons? People believe in gods but Clerics and Paladins get their power from study just like wizards do.

I've never seen a battle between Magic human and Technological human. I would love to see one.

>> No.10466697


oh hell yeah. maybe a secret realm where magic was outlawed thousands of years ago. or anti magic barriers. or both.

a civilisation evolves high tech dickery, and then they work out how to pass the barriers........

>> No.10466699


Not OP but I'm sort of doing that at the moment in my homebrew. Dwarves and humans share an origin, but humans learned magic while dwarves developed technology instead. And they're coming into conflict because a god is trying to force the two cultures to merge into one, which neither side is entirely happy about.

>> No.10466723

Here's a suggestion, OP: mess about with racial alignments. Elves are usually good and Orcs are usually evil, for instance. Why not flip that around and makes Orcs good and Elves bad?

>> No.10466726

So the technology manage to create a no-(fun)magic barrier and keep those damn wizards out. And after a while the wizard manage to destroy the barrier?
Ohhh. How is it right now? More information please?

*where such a thing is biologically possible

>> No.10466751


The setting's still in development and in my head, the "present" state of affairs is terse diplomacy and a few border conflicts.

Secretly, the god wants to incite war between the two people so that the humans will wipe out the dwarves, though, so it's likely that things will escalate rapidly.

>> No.10466778

Ahhh manipulative god(s?). Steam tank dorf VS Cloud riding human.

>> No.10466814

How's about a world where gods are literally just superpowered humans.

A while back the magic in the world asplode and and infused [oddly specific number] people with much, much more magic than is possible for any normal person.

There's no alternate dimension for them to hang out on, however, so the gods are left just wandering around the world, being gods and doing godly things. Since they all have different personalities, definitions of "godly things" will differ.

Call them immortals for an even cooler kick.

Also, they can die, but whenever they are killed the magic that was stored up in them* just moves and inhabits some other random person in the world.

*this probably requires a setting where you do not "use up" magic in any way

>> No.10466840

My mental image had their physical appearance being drastically altered, so I didn't really consider instances where they try to live a normal life.

>> No.10466912


I wasn't really thinking anything uniform. I'm rather used to settings where magic is this unpredictable force that people only try to control, so it fits in my mind if there's a great diversity in the outward appearance of immortals.

For instance, one could have that classic, mysterious-cloaked-figure look.

>> No.10466915

Oh ok. Sound awesome.

Others could be a bit more drastic.

(Sorry, most of the pics I have that scream "highly supernatural" are also dark, but I don't mean to imply that immortals would have such appearances exclusively)

Why does everyone have a problem with the religion set up in fantasy games? why is it bad to be able to physically, (through considerable effort, mind you) be able to reach out and touch your god?

Is this some sort of backlash for that not being how our world is set up? I don't get it.

I love being able to cast some ridiculously powerful magic and then present my creator with a list of suggested edits...

Setting Idea:
As long as anyone can remember, there has been the tower of Sin; an ancient brickwork building, 200 metres tall, in the centre of a grassy plain near the coast. At the top, a glowing cube with numbers and symbols on it's side. The numbers have been counting down as long as anyone can remember; for 3000 years, the dawn of civilisation. Mages have studied it, living in the city around the tower, for millenia.

Campaign starts. There is one year left on the clock.

No one is sure what will happen.

World is due an apocalypse. It's locked in a time-loop of a sort.

Ideas: When the timer hits 0, an ultra-powerful creature is released. If not stopped soon after release, portals open up across the world to the rest of the D&D universe and Sigil etc: the world comes under threat. Eventually, Devas will step through and are forced to imprison the ancient evil in the cube on a 3000-year clock, killing 99% of the population and 'restarting' time on that world. This has happened uncountable times before.

If only someone could defeat the evil, then the world wouldn't be trapped in a loop.

Not sure how you would frame the adventure, how you would reveal this info to the characters (assuming all anyone knows is that the timer goes down), and how to play it in general; but it could be a good starting point.

what if the creature is nigh-indestructible, and the only way to keep it from OMNOMNOMNOMing the material plane and several lesser planes is to trap it, and the surrounding area.

>> No.10467165


I wouldn't put it past myself to see an idea, forget about where i saw it, assume that i came up with it myself, and then unintentionally steal it.

Got me for where I stole it from, though.

>> No.10467380

Possibly faggy idea:
On this world, everyone has the ranger animal companion/wizard familiar power. They have an animal representation of who they are. Shamelessly stolen from His Dark Materials, but might be an interesting game experience; describing each character in an inn thusly;
The barkeep has a small pig sitting on his shoulder; the rich merchant a magpie, etc

I thyink in some ways it's a terrible idea, but it could be fun for a short while. Perhaps start with it, and have them all disappear as something has stolen people's 'souls'... which the party can adventure to restore, either as external animals or as internal moralities.

>> No.10467394

A world built around the D&D power abnormalities; one which is economically and politically biased by the fact that there are a lot of level 1-5 people, and a few kick-ass level 19 mages who can reshape contientnets and fighters who can kill an army.

Also; some reason for there begin so many people born who want to go fight monsters.

>> No.10467418

I would like to see interesting characters with realistic motivations and behaviors. The interactions between them should be well-thought out, particularly when it comes to politically powerful characters.

Esoteric mythology procurement.

We see lots of Eurocentric mythology, or Asian, but only a few things get cribbed from Indian, Malaysian, Aboriginal Australian, or even South American lore. I can't complain about African, as much, as Nyambe filled that niche. Maztica remained untapped and unexplored. There's decent hack/conversions of Al-Qadim...
