I'm flattered that the two of you are considering playing a game with this.

I would absolutely join this hypothetical game if someone that is not me was running it. My suspicion is that GURPS would be a better system to run it in, but that's honestly pretty immaterial on the whole. I'd play whatever, I just think that D&D's ruleset struggles to accommodate significant setting changes compared to more modular and open-ended game systems.

There are so many different versions of DnD as well; how do we choose between 3, 3.5, 4 and 5?

My input would be to stick with 3.5 and the 3rd splatterbooks that didn't get republished; 4th is not a very fun role-playing game imo (good video game though) and I feel like 5th is not widely distributed in this community. I don't have it, at least.

I just also like 3.5 a lot because it's what I learned on. 2nd and AD&D are too arcane and clunky.

If it makes you feel any better. I am not familiar with DnD either. I am a fluff kind of guy. I keep hearing praise on 3 and 3.5, and 5th edition seems to be giving people what they want.

GURPS sounds like a good ideas as well Orange. My friend Morphimus has a setting that we played a campaign of using Savage Worlds. So SW is always an option too.

What's this Paranoia thing you're talking about g0m?

On my own merits too, in a way that was fair to all players

I'm a fan of 3/3.5 myself, but not everybody is.

I think I will try and post a more detailed solid block of info later this week that has all my thoughts on the races of this setting and what goes and doesn't go. I'm getting a bit legitimately tired of this "lots of different goblin's races" stuff the more I think about it. It shoehorns a lot of potentially interesting concepts under one umbrella term, I hope that we can all be on the same page on this but this is a thing I don't like. It's almost like how there's a thousand different elf subraces and that's one of the big turn-offs cause it's essentially fake variety it's just Fire Elf, Frost Elf, Ice Elf, Snow Elf, Lava Elf, Rock Elf, Earth Elf, Stone Elf, Mountain Elf, Volcano Elf, Lava Elf, Magma Elf, Water Elf, Rain Elf, Cloud Elf, Hail Elf, Lightning Elf, Energy Elf, Domestic Electricity Elf, Spam Elf, Black Elf, Shadow Elf, Dark Elf, Night Elf, Chaos Elf, Void Elf, Elf Elf, Human Elf, Half-Elf, Dragon Elf, Ocean Elf, Lake Elf, Sea Elf, Dusk Elf, High Elf, Light Elf, Sun Elf, Star Elf, Chi Elf, Chakra Elf, Od Elf, Reiki Elf, Metal Elf, Heavy Metal Elf, Rap Elf, Rockn'Roll Elf, Blues Elf, Funk Elf, Jazz Elf, Swing Elf, Punk Rock Elf, Iron Elf, Crystal Elf, Fusion Rock Elf, Jazz Rock Elf, Blues Rock Elf, Hard Rock Elf, Pirate Metal Elf, Doom Metal Elf, Doom Elf, Destiny Elf, Fate Elf, Sludge Metal Elf, Black Metal Elf, Death Metal Elf, Extreme Death Metal Elf, Nazi Metal Elf, Metalcore Elf, Lelf Elf, Tall Elf, Blue Elf, Short Elf, Little Elf, Eldar, Dark Eldar, Warhammer Fantasy Elves, Warhammer Fantasy Dark Elves.

And the thing is, the long stupid joke aside (and the jab at how ridiculously diverse the Rock and Metal genre is) some of those fucking elf races I've seen before in fantasy video and tabletop games legitimately are a thing. Like what the fuck seriously man? Do you really need all these fucking elf races? Too many elves spoil a setting and maybe "Goblin's" would too.

Less "Lots of different goblins" more "anything that that's kind of weird and doesn't fit anywhere else is considered a goblin". (See this thread) Non-goblins can also be considered goblins if they follow the goblin queen.

I still wanna do this thang, just haven't had many ideas lately. One major idea that I can still remember is that within the core of the moon held by the Eagle of Time lies an containing a Phoenix. Once (if ever????) the Eagle and the Hawk reach their destination, the egg will hatch and their fiery offspring will reign together with them as an Overdeity triad over all the islands on the back of the Hawk, which will be fused together into a galaxy spanning giga-planet.


(Semi related thing here):

I've been contemplating trying to come up with a purely Egyptian pantheon setting for the fun of it.
