    So I'm wondering what TFF's preferences are (I would guess fantasy haha but who knows?). If you had a choice on what world you would live in, what would you choose? A magical fantasy land, where you can embark on an epic quest and be told in stories for the ages, the stay in the current time period living a normal life, or go into the future and take part in epic star ship and laser shooting battles in deep space? I would LOVE to go back into time, learn magic, fight dragons, fight in huge scale magical battles...boy do I ever miss Everquest :'(.

    I voted Fantasy.

    If I could live in any fantasy world? Hmm, it would have to be Aloria of the Belgariad.

    Fantasy is my answer.

    Fantasy, I'd go for Aerinor simply because I invented it as somewhere where I'd love to live.

    You haven't really defined which fantasy and sci-fi worlds you mean (there are uncountable versions of each and many have next to nothing in common).

    I went sci-fi. In most fantasy worlds, there is no good medicine, and heating is limited to fires and there's no air conditioning at all. Except post-apocalyptic, sci-fi usually has better technology and should have good medicine and, of course, good entertainment.

    fantasy could be anything...
    but when i heare fantasy i think middle age, and i would have loved that!
    to be a ranger in for instance tolkiens universe would be great.
    or a legionary and a general in old rome back around caesars time...
    anyway, fantasy it is!:D

    Ok as much as I want to say fantasy I'm thinking that fantasy worlds are mostly medieval worlds and I'm thinking if I could live in a world were I have to lit about 10 candles at night to read,have to get accustomed to the fact that warm showers will be really rare and difficult to have,I'll have to be writing letters all the time(not that I don't like that)to talk with friends who live in other fantasy cities and that the long distance trips will take days and where the heck are the toilets?Where did Frodo go when he wanted to go to the bathroom while he was on his journey?!Tolkien never wrote such stuff!Now I see why it wasn't difficult for Gollum to follow Frodo!

    So I guess it's the sci-fi world because of all the comforts it has but only if its a world where people have the same values as in a fantasy world and believe in truth,justice and freedom.

    I'd think the equality thing is more sci-fi. In Fantasy they tend to emphasise gender roles, even if they're different to our gender roles (some don't, of course), while in sci-fi (except in things like Dune) gender doesn't seem to matter as much...

    The glory of living in a world of fantasy is that you can create what you wish...The possiblities are endless and as wide as your imagination....
