The Finalisation Thread (Enupnion Setting)

This thread is for deciding what is final. To be considered final, 60% (rounded up) of the people on the following list must approve of the content as final.

List of people with voting rights : Artemis, Baeleck, Castaras, Deadly, Destro Yersul, Geomancer, Helgraf, Moozy, Vael, Xaspian

There are currently 10 people on the list, so 6 must approve for something to be considered final

Anyone can be added to, or removed from, the list at any time, just let me know. Just keep in mind that it would be nice if you stay up to date with the discussions in this forum if you're on the list.
Geomancer

Should we finalize the already thought out races and the freak points and such?
Deadly

I don't think there's a whole lot to finalise right now. Since noone have said much about them, I guess my dragons are ready to be finalised now. My world map, maybe too. But most things seem to just be random thoughts that haven't been properly put together and formalised yet.
Geomancer

I'll agree to finalize both of those things then.
Castaras

I also agree to finalise both the map and the dragons.
Destro Yersul

From what I've seen, both are good. I'll vote yes.
Xaspian

The landscape map - We haven't finalised the landmarks, any nations, settlements and the like yet, but that an come later. I vote to finalise the outline map thingy. Not quite yet on the dragons, until Artemis' idea has been discussed.
Deadly

Ok, let's start getting stuff finalised. Please say which points below you agree to. These are all basic things, with as little detail as possible, in no particular order.

1. Can we agree that the following map is ok as a basic outline of the continents, islands and seas on a large scale without details? Forgetting for now about names, landscapes and detailed locations.

Spoiler:



2. Can we agree that one of the moons were destroyed long ago, and that fragments of that moon fell down upon the world? And that the moons, and the fragments are responsible for magic?

3. Can we agree that large parts of the world is covered by water, and that the land is mostly small islands? That travel by sea is common as a result? That the world used to have more land, but was largely flooded long ago as a result of the moon being destroyed, and that this created many submerged ruins?

4. Can we agree that the fallen moon fragments are responsible for vast mutations in both humans and animals, caused by their strong magical energies? Anything from tiny changes to almost complete transformations?

5. Can we agree that "human" is the only playable race, but that mutations can be applied to create great variety?

6. Can we agree that in the world of Enupnion only humans, animals and mutations of the two are known to exist, and that other mythical creatures, like demons and dragons, remain myths so far?

7. Can we agree that Enupnion is a post apocalyptic world, where civilization was once highly advanced in both technology and magic? And that technology is now limited and mostly ruined and distrusted? And that magic related to the moon shards is highly distrusted and controversial, but available?

8. Can we agree that there are 5 moons in total, of which one was destroyed long ago? And can we agree that the names of these moons are as follows: Kurai, Imura, Saita, Tau Ren and Zentul, where Zentul is the exploded one?

***

If any of this is finalised, it is then considered official and generally won't be changed.
Castaras

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes

5. Much as I'm still wanting mist dragons to be playable, I can understand why we're getting rid of all races but human, and as such, say Yes.

6. Not at the moment.

7. Yes.

8. Yes
Moozy

*sigh*

Yes to all of them, but I will want to see some major transformations here. As for the map, it's good, but I think there should be another continent distanced a good bit from the rest of the world. How about southeast?
Vael

1) Yes.
2) Yes.
3) Yes.
4) Yes.
5) Yes.
6) Yes.
7) Er... I'm not sure abundant is something we should go with for moon shards. The presence should be obvious, but not so much because you'll stumble over a moon shard every two steps. I was thinking that finding a moon shard should be something rare unless you're an adventurer, in which case it would still be something to go "oooo..." over.
Cool I agree with everything but the names. We need to cement a sort of language/culture thing before we can really see what names will fit nicely.

When talking about the amount of magic, technology or other mechanics, I'm always talking from the point of view of adventurers, because that's the only thing that makes sense.

What I mean is just that you won't have to wait until level 15 to find your first piece of moon rock or get your first spell. Not that you'll drown in moon rocks before level 2 Razz

Edit: Changed the word "abundant" to "available", just to be nice Smile
Xaspian

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes
5. Yes ... For the moment. Will there be oppurtunities for 'awakened' animals, or creatures otherwise enhanced by human magic? It doesn't matter, it just mightbe worththinking about.
6. Yes
7. Yes
8. Yes, with Vael's note about names and language.
Geomancer

1. I really like your map, but I'd like us to add some more land in there somewhere. There has to be at least a few places where you aren't close to an ocean. Otherwise we are too limited location wise.


Yes to everything else, except the moon names, because I agree with Vael that we need a more concrete system before we can okay those.

First, the map is supposed to show a very large area, so if you're in the center of one of the large "continents" you're actually pretty far from the ocean. Also, I've never claimed that it showed the entire world, so more could be added, but I'd like to wait until entirely sure that it's really needed before doing that. When we get more things worked out we might just find that there's plenty of space.
Geomancer

I'll okay that as well then.
Artemis

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes
5. Yeah, but we need to come up with more mutations
6. A reluctant yes, we keep going in circles about this one.
7. Yes
8. Yes, 5 moons one of which has exploded. I agree with Vael on the names.
Geomancer

Come up with more mutations? I thought we were just choosing them at character creation, so the character maker gets creative choice.
Artemis

Yeah I'm kind confused as to how these mutations work. Are there like standard mutations similar to different races to choose from or do you just make it up at the start where everyone is completely different?
Vael

Think of having all the different racial stats available to mix and choose from.
Artemis

Ah alright then. Cool.
Geomancer

Oh is that how they are? Someone should make a thread where we can discuss that. *Twiddles the thumbs of laziness*
Destro Yersul

Yes to everything. I like the moon names, and hey, they could work as a starting point for cementing language/culture.
helgraf

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes-ish.
5. Yes, but damn, you have to be careful with this or you quickly end up with several 'preferred twink mutation' starting packages.
6. I'm not as fond of this one, but yeah.
7. Yes.
8. Yes and yes, though I like my expanded names for them (see Magic and Moons thread).

Deadly

Alright, all of it has been finalized, except the moon names, which we'll have to discuss some more. All the points received 8 yes votes, except 6 and 7 which both received 7 yes votes.

Here's exactly what's been finalized, I'll add it to the finalized thread later. I think I'll write it up as a sort of intro to the world.

1. We agree that the following map is ok as a basic outline of the continents, islands and seas on a large scale without details. Forgetting for now about names, landscapes and detailed locations, and keeping in mind that more can be added if needed.

Spoiler:



2. We agree that one of the moons were destroyed long ago, and that fragments of that moon fell down upon the world. And that the moons, and the fragments are responsible for magic

3. We agree that large parts of the world is covered by water, and that the land is mostly small islands. That travel by sea is common as a result.
