How would you set a high fantasy setting in the ruins of our world?
Shadowrun, but people are actually nice to each other.
>>50661608High leveled anima game.The ruins of your reality lie beneath the surface, break the ormus system and go back in time to stop the time where everyone forgot.
>>50661608Go read Shanara then come back if you still can't figure it out.
>>50664415Not going to lie, that show angered me for soo many reasons.
>>50661608>Religions based off statues that survived>Holy relics are just pieces of technology that survived >Somehow the Mongolians made it through the apocalypse without a scratch.
>>50664520Lady Liberty and Mary fused into one goddess. The Messiah was American.
It's not ideal, but we literally have this game going. It used to be Mutants and Masterminds, but since there was a magical apocalypse, we moved on to 5e set thousands of years after the magical apocalypse. Everything is basically a high fantasy version of our world, kept pretty static by /some/ magical force.
>>50664749No, anon. Surely they must have have worshipped the one most represented around.All hail the great god Mickey and it's mouse avatar!

The lead developer of this tech is a super D&D nerd who decides to recreate his magical realm for shits n giggles.Clearly this fat neckbeard gets killed'd and it all spirals out of control.Magic essentially exists now.Dungeons are the buried ruins of skyscrapers etc.
>>50661608>Countries made AI to fight our wars for us>War goes on soo long and is soo devastating that humanity goes extinct>The machines with the AI we programmed still roam the world fighting what they deem "Enemies of Humanity"
I have this image in my my head of a wizened old man, scrolls and tomes littering his humble abode telling the children of the village about the 'Old Cultures'.>Most of the knowledge within libraries has been lost to time>The internet is either non-existent or never existed in the first place>Knowledge of the old cultures is incredibly rare >this leads to many misconceptions about our history, culture and beliefs >Example, "Once there was an empire called, Brotonia, it ruled the entire world with a mighty fist and could even command the very waves of the sea!">"In the great eastern lands of snow and the great dark bear, once ruled a king made of steel who commanded red men into war"
>>50666686That's actually pretty damn cool.
>>50666709Thank you anon. This thread has given me some good ideas. For the pre-apocalyptic world would it be better to alter history so digital technology isnt as powerful? perhaps 80s level.

I'm actually working on a setting where the most valuable items in the world are not Gold or Silver, but Music on Vinyl. Where a Vinyl record is worth ten times its weight in gold and priests exist solely to maintain the few record players left in operation. People believe that they're holy scripture since the first record was discovered and the Local lords changed their titles to that of the ancient Kings sung about on it. The main King is called "The Sultan of Swing"
>>50666943There was a great man in the past, from the lands beyond the steppes, who made great artifacts to find the Web. He was called Sam Sung, but nowadays his magical objects are silent.
>>50667525>Sam Sung>Not Mo'Deem
>>50667525A quest to reactivate the radio towers would be pretty dope. Actually, the idea that we might rebuild society to a similar state as it is today if we were to fuck it all up implies that there would be a period where things like this would need to happen. It would be an interesting hypothetical time period to adventure in.>Rediscovering the internet>Rebuilding old infrastructure>Wheeling and dealing in the booming new tech markets>Remapping GPS like Louis and Clark>Fixing destroyed environments and surviving harsh climates >Neo-Luddites who fear The Bomb/the internet/social media/whatever got everyone into this mess in the first place vs. pioneers of retro future tech expanding like oil barons
>>50667625Generally, the big spot to doing that is getting the necessary materials: difficult/impossible to dig up the needed metals without other current infrastructure, etc.
>>50667654There would also be a society to consider around it, depending on whats left of the previous world. Trying to recapture society could be seen as an illicit or immoral thing, making those that traffic in the sort of thing anything from scoundrels to pariahs.
The americas are overrun with magical creatures. Wilderness has overrun most rural areas as magical fauna has spread to all but major cities and suburbs. There are three kinds of people who venture beyond the safe zones. Hunters who slay particarly dangerous creatures and deal with the odd orc warbands. Road crews who's tank pavers keep the highways in usable repair and truckers who move the valuable macguffin crystals and ore that allow those who live in the cities continue to live modern, prosperous lives without worry of food supplies.Also skip the swords, guns and sorcery.
Utah now covers more of the Rockies, and it's Paladins are either of the Rockwell order traveling two and two. They possess the strength of normal men but cannot die unless they fall to sin and lose their protection. Feared for their violent reputation they solve most issues diplomatically. Since they can't die most folks bury them to stop them, or tie them to great stones and sink them in lakes. It's said that if you rescue a Mormon paladin they will reward you with gold tablets, a rumor given weight by the wealth of Mormon traders.

>>50667388JAPANThe Cauldron Ship of the Dead, Yamatai-no-fune, which ever sails under the waves, and it smaller sisters. The prophecies tell that one day, when mankind will turn to violence and conquest and nothing will be sacred anymore, it will rise again and spawn forth the Insects of Metal to bind the world in fire, blood and ashes. They will attempt to kill the gods themselves, but the Sun goddess Amaterasu will die giving birth to the Destroyer of Worlds, the Sun-on-Earth, the name of which is not uttered in anything more than whispers, but it's tought to be Enola the Mirthful. After that, the world will be born anew, with prosperity and peace.The Ten Billions Shadows of the lost city of Akiha-no-bara, were dream spirits walked on earth from drawings on scrolls and altars of glass. Their warlock and "rotten witches" cults are legion now, and they are divided by the spirits they can supposedly call on, be it giants of iron, masters of divine martial arts or protector-maidservants of princely palaces. Aside from their pletohora of drawing-sigils they have strange fetishes of the World That Was, like dolls in unknown materials or bizzare costumes that can make the rituals of the descent of the Shadows on people easier, but the real magical items are reserverd for the initiates. They whisper that in their cerimonies the sigils do come to life and renact dramas almost unthinkable without the warlocks' knowledge of the Ancients' way and of the Masks allegories.
>>50667625>Neo-Luddites who fear The Bomb/the internet/social media/whatever got everyone into this mess in the first placedo these neo luddites have magical suits of armor and weapons that spit fire? do they claim to be protecting the world from the evils of technology while hoarding said technology?
Magic is simply activating certain protocols of satellites in orbit, with effects such as ionizing the atmosphere to create storms or lightening bolts, creating holograms, and firing great beams of energy to destroy or star trek teleport to other places, or causing the nanites that infest everything to activate, disassembling or reassembling machinery or objects, curing or causing diseases in the bodies of those they exist in

Of course, don't forget the Coltists.They remember Sam Colt, the son of God, who came to America with guns to preserve them from the evil tyranny of the British, bringing liberty and equality.For lo, is it not said that "God made Man, but Sam Colt made them equal."In Texas, you can still occasionally find his banner being flown.

Whatever miracles and spells they acknowledge are dismissed as unexplained but scientific phenomenaI want to run this campaign set in the Bay Area. The Illuminati control San Francisco and the adventures take place in the East Bay. The Illuminati have recently intervened in a short civil war that saw Berkeley and Oakland win their independence from the Kingdom of the Bay. They are now firmly in the Illuminati's sphere of influence.But the Illuminati have been engaged in a quagmire of a war against demonic invaders from the south, so the Kingdom of the Bay is trying to take advantage of San Francisco's weakness in order to reclaim some of their power and influence.
>>50672406>The IlluminatiSwap for freemasons and youre on the right track
>>50672416The terms are frequently used interchangeably by conspiracy theorists. I just thought that "Illuminati" sounded cooler. Then again, using a lot of neo-Egyptian motifs could be cool. Part of the setting is that all the heavily populated areas are renamed because the old names are considered cursed (largely because other than San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and Fremont I don't know enough of the Bay to make it work). Maybe San Francisco could become "New Thebes"One of my big problems is that I can't come up with a justification for there to be radioactive wastelands and yet San Francisco and Berkeley were spared.

Or the flask of Mon, said to provide a great boost in speed and agility before an equally sudden crash of motor functions. The bottles containing either Co-La or Psi are viewed as the most ancient and powerful, an equal balance of healing and mental acuity increase, but scholars engage in heated debate over which has the best effects.
This thread reminded me of a Fallout Japan setting where the american base in okinawa becomes a kingdom obsessed with "the American Empire". Also have an idea about xboxes and playstations being cursed similar to jewish dybbuk boxes
>>50672956Cont.> One of the few buildings left standing in the ruins of Hatten is the Building of the Empire, a tall, glass and stone structure with a blackened metal point on the top. Rumors abound of a powerful wizard at the top of it who keeps the ancient tower in pristine working order, but protected by wards powerful and ancient, many doors blocked by singlets of "Out Order" and vast shafts that seem to drop down into the very depths of the Earth itself.> Out in the ruins of the Vast Wasteland, near the chain of mountains called the Rocks, is rumored to be an ancient war base, located at the Mountains of Chy. Deep within its bowels, behind ancient doors of iron and steel, underneath thousands of layers of "sement" is an ancient, perfectly circle ring, made of metals not found on this earth, said to transport you or things on the other side of this Gate into the heavens themselves in an instant. Others claim this to be a mere story the ancients crafted of their warriors conquering the heavens themselves, but no one knows for sure.

North of Russia in the white forests of the Finn are the whisperings of a guardian ghost. In other cultures, Death is known to be garbed in black, but only in Finn does he wear white. Trespassers of ill will shall face certain death, stricken by the snow itself. Should the earth shatter, the forests burn, and the snowman himself be torn asunder, White Death smites all wicked his way come.The two churches of Fast Bells on the Hated Land, despite being under the same banner, held a crusade against each other for a century. Murals painted on the buildings served as accolades for the paladins who fought and died in combat. A mutually kept wall signed by those who lost still stands today, with an untold number of names on it. The war has since died, but green and orange flags fly on the respective sides, in memorial of the past that was lost and all the world we'll never know.In the far East, the pantheons of the Old Gods were enormous, with thousands of names, and almost entirely female. They all seemed to be patrons of beauty, though many had domains elsewhere as well. The popular belief is that there was a constant conflict over what God or Gods should hold the title.On God's Boot there lies a city as old as the world itself. The ancient city we see there was, itself, built on another ancient city, and that one before it. Hundreds of cities, filling the same shoe, falling the same fate. The Throne of God sits there in a grand palace, filled for only so little at a time, reflecting man's inability to play the part of the throne's real owner, and behind it, a statue depicting Pheonix Christ, the icon of the city, being born again from the fire that undone him. The city may fall, but its legacy will never fade, and that legacy is ROMA.
>>50676874Basically Mad Max: Horse Archer is what I'm trying to say.
>>50671859That's a really cool idea. Expanding on that, magic users are simply people who through a quirk of genetics are more compatible and have a higher baseline nanomachine count. This means they can send stronger and more complex signals, but possible suffer physical side effects and frailty due to the extra stress on their bodies. Nanomachine count can also be increased through frequent use of the magic, though continual usage can cause some to malfunction, creating tumours and temporary physical and mental mutations. For safe usage, you should rest after a period of time to allow the malfunctioning nanites to be reabsorbed and repaired.People worship the transient lights in the skies as gods, and the source of magic. That's why in the Dark Lands, where none of satellites are visible there is effectively an anti-magic zone.Very large creatures with extremely large amounts of nanites in their bodies have a sort of secondary intelligence, and the network connecting the nanites becomes exponentially more complex. This is viewed as possession, though depending on how the nanites network develops it can be malicious, benevolent or completely alien to the host body.I just imagine a whale oracle which has such a huge amount it can essentially divine the future.

>>50692356https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wy7Q6wazD_E>>50692399"Gone" is an exaggeration. 150 years isn't quite enough for that. Streets will disappear, but houses won't - unless they are too close to a nuclear power plant.

The catastrophe which ruined the world of the Twenty-First Century was nothing so simple as damage in the real; some natural disaster on the scale of reality itself saw thought and substance mesh and mingle. Nightmares became flesh. Imagined enemies became genuine. Fear itself came to life.Intense focus and trained visualization can selectively warp the permeable substance of reality, allowing human will to become manifest for attack or defense. Each time, the realms mix further, threatening to birth living madness from thin air.
>>50661608Well there's Degenesis. I don't know if it qualifies as high fantasy but the world is a weird mishmash of sci-fi, post apoc and medieval themes with magic mutants sprinkled into it.
>>50672046i have seen the idea of post-apocalypse people mining for the remnants of traffic-jams along the long-buried highways, would be slightly less bullshit than useful stuff just laying around accessible to everyone.
>>50692845Might as well watch the trailer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Tw3KaMr8wkThe whole RPG is basically a hobby project of one talented artist and his tudio team.
>>50693046http://sixmorevodka.com/degenesis/It's a shame that we havent heard a thing from them for a year now. They published the core books and an adventure and have been silent since.
>>50691808OP just asked for "high fantasy setting atop the ruins of our world", and LH is literally that.Also, iirc the in-game setting lore is that some apocalyptic thing happened and the world went gradually from modern civilization to high fantasy. Granted that the world wasn't destroyed irl, but oh well.
>>50693103cause they just decided to focus on their actual job instead of the hobby...fucking lazy scums you either commit or you dont do shit, bait and switch are the worst.i hate the fact that their is a lot of mysteries but absolutely no answer for the GM.who are the walkers (chernobog &co) what is happening in the north of britain where sleepers are dominated.what is happening in the robot controled city?i can use my imagination but if someday 6MV decide to publish answer it will just render everything i gave during the campaign irrelevant.Also where is Black Atlantic...
>>50693103There's also a crazy amount of metaplot hidden in the art, stories and descriptions. Most of it will never be important to the players, but it's fun to think about it.
>>50693192They're working on the french translation atm, and it is likely that they are publishing The Killing Game right after that.Black Atlantic is problematic because the dude responsible opened a cafe
>>50693253kinda wrong, EDGE was doing their own translation.i worked for 2 month with their translator.Was working on the design of the collector ed
>>50693298Huh, seems I was misinformed. Damn, the red casing looks rad. Too bad I don't speak french
>>50693343Thanks it s great the texture of the book cover and the box is glossy smooth.the only issue is that the box is huge i mean really huge and it s hard to fit in a library.we had a huge delay cause 6MV wanted to change some editorial line and fix typo/error, so they were involved in the french version but not with the translation aside from an overview.
>>50661608So basically Thundarr the Barbarian?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundarr_the_Barbarian
>>50691884Introduce new fault.Now you can make whatever the fuck you want.
What happened to Eastern Europe?
>>50695516The same thing that happened to anywhere north of Delaware or south of Brazil.Nothing lives beneath the ice, save for things that ought not be. As if to defy man's technology, the ice reached farther than ever.There is no summer there.
>>50696238>Eastern Europe>Not stoically defying nature and persevering
>>50692726kek'd at the IOWThere should be a british comedy verision of 'escape from LA' with the IOW instead
>>50695516Occupied by the Mongolian Neo-Khanate
>>50671529You posted the wrong trilogy
>>50667388MEXICOThe Catholic traditions of old get even more mixed with ancient native rituals and paganism, the end of the world has turned the country into an even darker and violent place, with the drug lords and their minions being the most armed members of society their culture and way of life spreads through the north, meanwhile, in the deep south, native beliefs and traditions over take the still existing cities that become more and more isolated with each passing year, creating their own mythos with their local legends.>Malverde, Saint of Trade, Rebirth and War, Patron of all NarcosAn old saint of the narcos in Mexico, with the end of the world and the narcos becoming an even stronger force in the north, the worship of Malverde has become a norm in the desert states of old Mexico, with people making offerings of food, flowers and bullets on its shrines that exist all over the north>Santa Muerte, Saint of Death In Central Mexico, the catholic church never completely disappeared, with the many cathedrals and monuments existing with christian themes it was impossible for it to disappear, but instead it evolved into more obscure methods, with the end of the world and people turning into more obscure rituals the small fringe cult of La Santa Muerte grew to the point of overtaking jesus and the holy trinity as the fundation of the church, now the priests and bishops conduct mass and the eucharist in her honor, putting her as a new and stronger aspect of divinity, catholic traditions are now combined with blood offerings and animal sacrifices, with some people doing human sacrifices in secret to try and gain the fevors of La Santa Muerte.The south is plagued with different legends and mythos all of them coming from their local native beliefs, making the south a really diverse and supersticious place.

>>50692726The isle of Mann. They aren't men son, they're manns. Cursed deamons with three legs each! You listen to your Ma now, or the Manns will come and take you in your sleep
>>50693199What metaplot do you speak of? Also is that actual art from the books, cause I missed that completely.
>>50702008It's from the anubian chapter in primal punk I think. It's theorized that those glowy coffins are the cryopods of the 8 ancestors, one of which is most likely the guy who is adressed in the mail at the end of the first book if I remember corectly.The metaplot spans a ton of shit like getrell and the recombination group, how he forsaw most of the shit that is currently happening and how he planned for his return from space. The marauders are working against it, then you've got shit like the psychovores and the 7th chakra.Fuck, it's too late for me to go into depth. Maybe I'll return tomorrow and bring some news, but I advise you to read every chapter, every sentence in both books carefully and think about the actions and reactions of the cults and cultures, their abilities/equiptment and how everything correlates to eachother.If you do you might come up with crazy theories like this one: Aries might or might not be an AI and/or inhabitant of a nanite factory on creta or a moon of jupiter who temporarily assumes direct controll of his Arianoi (or more specifically, his Fatums) via nanite reprogramming of their brain to influence the world. Makes more or less sense if you read everything about the jehammedans, including their ranks and talents. Also the transmition of jehammed's disc that you can find in the download sections of their website
