OK, it's that time again. Just to recap, here's where it began
To recap the Intention
You all know what happened with Battlestar Galacrica. That corny period-piece got not only a facelift, but an entire re-imagination almost from scratch. Most of the character names were the same, and the Cylon Threat remained, but after that it was basically put through some really creative gymnastics, and what emerged was awesome, pure awesome. Well, much of that is the screenwriting and direction, but still, you get my point.Here's an art project where someone Awesome-O-Fied HE-MAN
(the anime/action figure line), and was such a jaw-dropper that it directly inspired this line of threads.
Anyway, I was thinking that maybe the same can be done to old D&D (or other) campaign worlds. Take the core ideas that are there, and shake them up. Reimagine them.
To recap the Rules
If you're tangentially familiar with the setting, join in the brainstorm session.
Just throw out a few ideas (or one) per post. You don't have to write paragraphs, even a sentence or two is ok.
You do not have to build upon yourself (you could say "There are Elves, and they are badass!" and "There are NO Elves!" in the same post, just to throw out some ideas). You can build on your own ideas if you want.
You do not have to build upon the ideas of others; you are absolutely free to contradict or ignore them. You can build on others' ideas if you want.
It's not "group setting creation" so much as simply brainstorming.
Also, feel free to pull things out of Dark Sun that you liked and talk about them (and why you liked them), which can maybe set off some cool ideas.
