TVTropes builds a campaign setting!:

Hmm...
Thanks, folks. I actually feel almost normal again, I just have a ringing in my ears and some anxiety that makes it hard to sleep. This has happened before tough, the last time it lasted a few days, so I'm confident I'll be better soon. :)

So any thoughts on me objecting to my own idea?

 1453 Sijo, Wed, 4th Apr '12 6:00:46 AM from Puerto Rico
Hmm...
I object to that!

-*Ahem*

(give me a break, I need a laugh tongue)

I think it shows you are becoming more careful and learning to work with the group, good for you! IF you decide to withdraw the proposal for now, be sure to let me know before I make the next ballot.

I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions for it.

Edit: I mean, validation of my decisions is nice, but I was more looking for advice.

A spell is set into the Aether with the very purpose of being accessed by others. Sometimes a prerequisite is required, such a particular items, certain genetic markers, membership in an organization or other things and sometimes it is completely open to everyone, imprinted their by a wizard who wished to leaver her mark upon the world forever

This could work well with Pact users, especially the part I bold-ed.

I just wanna know if their is something I can add to this to nerf it.

BTW, I've decided not to stay over at my sister's. I'm feeling almost OK now, so I'll stay home and try to sleep normally one more time. IF I fail then I'll take the weekend off.

And thanks to all of you for your good wishes. :)

I don't think anything needs to be done.

Ultimately, the ability of a caster to use spells would be limited by his/her mental faculties, control over the Ęther, and any number of other factors. Average Joe the Wizard isn't going to be able to pluck the spell that sent an army into the sky out of thin air and cast it, because he's just not powerful enough.

Still having some trouble sleeping. It's the tinnitus (the ringing in the ears.) But I'm almost used to it by now. I did some research and it might be unrelated to my epilepsy after all. I'll ask my doctor, my next appointment is next week anyway.

Anyway, my big problem with the worldwide-effect spells is this: much of the intrigue of colonization-based fiction comes from the isolation the colonies suffer from the mainland, due to great distances, resources, politics etc. For example, a colony might be faced with a moral choice regarding dealing with the natives, and not know what to do due because they do not have immediate contact with their superiors. Instant communication would shoot that down. Secrets and news would spread like wildfire. Think those "how movies would have been resolved if they had cell phones" videos in Youtube. So, once again I suggest we limit it somehow- requiring rare spells to access, or the use of a ley point, etc.

[up] I don't like that at all, with all the magic we've stuffed into this setting. It be too wrong to restrict players and GM's like that, not too mention it run against everything we've done so far.

What.... the Domain Spells?

 1465 Exelixi, Thu, 5th Apr '12 12:52:34 PM from Alchemist's workshop Relationship Status: Armed with the Power of Love

Sijo, I don't think the domain spells have anything to do with instant-speed communication (which we already said is a big no).

Alright, let's step back and do some introspection, just for a moment.

Everyone, what do you feel the setting still needs?

An established map, with countries and cultures locations, Cities states, ectra can come later. Also a map of ley lines over it with nodes. We can fill in the blanks from there.

Agreed.

Part of that is figuring out the geography.

I could repost that list.

I think I have a new idea for the Domain Spells, make a marked difference between Artificial and Natural Domain Spells and put different but greater limits on each one.

 1471 Sijo, Thu, 5th Apr '12 4:50:18 PM from Puerto Rico
Hmm...
A map (of at least the established lands such as the Empires) would be a big help indeed. Isn't there some map generator online we can use?

I also think this setting needs more characters, as examples of what can be done with the races and classes. Also, more heroic characters. Hrod is fun and whatnot, but one thing people always ask is "so, who are the Good Guys here?"

I'm actually working on a character right now, to serve as an example of what the setting can do with various systems and to provide an unambiguous good guy patron for the players to interact with.

FUUUUUCK

Let me rephrase that: I WAS working on a character, but I've had a rough week and my computer just destroyed an hour's worth of work and you know what fuck it.

I'll try again tomorrow.
