Departments

Costume Department

  • Armor and tunics/leggingsnote /skirts work great for almost any setting. You just need to adapt them to fit the setting. Fantasy gets plate or chainmail armor, Sci-fi gets Powered Armor.
  • Those technologies we mentioned? Can any of it be implanted into a character?

Casting Department

  • Whatever classic races you want to include, and any new ones you dream up.

Stunt Department

  • A heroic deed here and there (up to and including wars) in the history to keep it interesting.
  • And scandals, humorous or serious, to add drama or humor.
