Nightfall and The City Wants Us Dead
Ok, here I am with 2 ideas set in what I think are mostly original worlds :p
Ok, this one a little morbid methinks. So, world plagued with eternal night or whatever, people do stuff it's great.
But... you know steampunk and the other punkpunk genres, right? What if everything ran on death? Machines using blood as fuel, bound souls controlling trains, throwing corpses into grinders... And then throw in some necromancy and blood magic and [s]magic makes it all complete[/i] skadoosh, corpsepunk!
The world of Nightfall is dark, in many ways. Zombies, ghosts, vampires and the like live normal lives living among the living and necromancers and blood mages often run for mayor or the many independent townships spread across the surface (and below!) The dead are restless, and those that stay dead are highly valued for four main components: their body, their heart, their mind, and their soul, all of which are valid sources of power to run the grinding machines and spirit engines and blood runes used in everyday life!
Basically it's a sort of morbid steampunk-esque fantasy setting.
The City Wants Us Dead
Down, down, down... The Undercity is very much alive, and it doesn't like you or your friends. This is a dark sci-fi set in an large enclosed layered city run by a sadistic and cruel AI (AI's, plural? maybe...). People work to survive against the sentient "liquid" nanobots that "deconstruct" anything they touch, the mechanical (and sometime biomechanical) horrors built by the insane minds of madmen and AI, and the other survivors in the Undercity. Also, energy weapons and embedded technology and bionics and biotech and mutations and body horror and other stuff.
Basically it's kinda horror sci-fi survival against crazy AI.
SO who's interested?
I kinda wanted to make them discussion groups if anyone was interested in making side stories and the like as I have quite a few ideas for the two settings, but I have no ideas how those work :|
They'd probably be high free or casual RPs.
