And I don't mean the fall of civilization, I mean a Class 3+ technicolor apocalypse
But I'm having trouble coming up with a proper scenario. I want something horrible
, but in the way everyone might look back on and laugh about...if they weren't all dead, anyway.
Now, one thing I'm fairly certain of is that I want to heavily play with the Cosy Catastrophe
. Namely, that the end is known well in advance, but the population seems oddly fine about it
. At least, initially, though I imagine Hilarity Ensues
as characters start to consider exactly how
they're going to go, or the ramifications of the whole situation.
But I'm not sure the format. Should I chronicle one group of main characters? Should there be vignettes that cycle through a number of characters until the end? Does the end, in fact, not come all at once, and each vignette chronicles a character before their fate?
One other thing I'm considering is setting. A contemporary setting seems like the obvious choice, but I almost wonder how things might fare in a Medieval European Fantasy
setting, or even a Sword And Sandal
Anyway, to summarize, I need a reasonably funny apocalyptic scenario, a suggestion on the format, and a suggestion for the setting.
