So I am planning out a Fate Core game, and right now, I've hit upon this ( taken from another peice I wrote about on my G+):
From Pern I am drawing on the Psi-bonds (and potentially other lite psi power) equivalents, so a sort of 'Renaissance -esque fantasy world).
Then drawing from Dinotopia: So having the PC's be perhaps people a plane wrecked /transported across dismensions/worlds ect... have them find a world that welcomes them and tries to bring them into the fold.
So I am mostly starting out from small base camp they'd have set up and they've managed to find a city.. big and bright.. and colorful...
The 'issues So far are:
"Strangers in a Strange Land"
" There are... Intelligent!" ( In reference to the Intelligent bond-able beings- who are fully Sentient & sapient)
Trying to figure out how to bring some factions and beliefs to the world- but I wanna leave much of it up to the players.
i don't want to write the whole world for them (its no fun.)
So I am very much torn between the all te characters doing collectively having these "Themes:
Journey of Discovery (of themselves and their new world), ultimately being
"Reborn" into their new Worl, and becoming denizens of it and taking their places. and then setting off on a
'Quest' and that resolution. ( Basically trying to encompass the three Dinotopia book different flavors while transposiing them over something slightly less. Idyllic)?
So I know I want to give some 'boxes' for things, from Dinotopia & Pern I want the 'bonding creatures' to be unique and capable, but (unlike Pern, and more like Dinotopia- they need to be fully independant from their human counter parts beings in their own right. ( On Pern dragons are not, they literally were designed to need humans to LIVE (upon hatching if it doesn't find a suitable human lifemate it dies.)
I am viewing the world that the people come into a : 'Fantasy world' - so colors and outfits can range and no one blinks an eyelash at things that might be anachronistic from one 'era' to another.
I know I also deliberately have less-pleasant things going on.
