Add in few hints of a more high-tech past, and that's your typical JRPG world. I haven't played that many of them, but that's how most of them work.Untadaike wrote:How about this: A steam punk world with Humans, Elves and Dwarves. Half the planet is made of iron, the other half, land. The two governments are in a terrible conflict, with another government that tries to keep peace on the border. Everything is powered by steam. You can combine your weapon arsenal with medieval weapons, the more advanced of which are heated for more damage by steam, and steam-powered slugthrowers. Steam-powered airships. And there's magic too. Punk magic. All that combined with the long and bloody history between races, I think it would be awesome. We could call it Cast Iron or something. Thoughts?
It has a good track record, at least, and might not be so common in P&P games.
