Theres no approprate section for this, but hopefully it should get a section of its own: Okay, having an entire world of our own for the RPG section is one of the best Ive heard yet, My cheers go out to Boom, Nik or whoever's initial idea it was. I realy enjoy this because it gives us a chance to be every creative, make our own lands and peoples, even if theyre just small villages and people, or entire civilisations. But this can create problems, we could make contradicting histories, places and peoples. So I think we desperately need a thread to post all concrete facts on the Elysium we have created for ourselves, the history and backstoryies of the lands and peoples (individual character histories can stay in their respective profiles. So lets pile together names and places and everything we can get, and eventually we may get something liek a list of addendecies for reference when it coems to RPG's, maybe eventually we can make a map of elysium. This could prove vital for the continuity of elysium if we really want it to be an actual world instead of a bunch of random facts spewed into each RPG without thought. The reason Tolkien is loved so much is because he created an entire world with intricate detail that you felt yourself emersed into. So if everyone would contribute by adding the details they have made for each RPG and their characters, perhaps we can get this thing going. From the three RPG's there isnt much history on a global scale, all i could piece together was that many ages ago there was one united empire of elysium, lead by Orion Sarat. (this is from backstory in RPG 1 by Meteorain) Then a creautre cam forth as a creation of all mans greed and darkness, called Cyric. Long battles were fought and he was defeated, but the empire was in ruin. From then on set in a new dark age (Im making asusmptions here) when brutal struggles for power set in, all forms of wars were fought and thw world was brutal. After many thousands of years this died down and nations gre powerful and we are once again in an imperial age of fantasy, although this time its not united and there are still ravaging wars. Any other details are to be posted by the people who made them. Im going to work on a small history of a nation I invented (both my characters from RPG 1 and 2 are from this land).
