So I've spoken with Minto via email and he gave me the lowdown on his absence and basically has been snowed in and forgot about it. It happens sometimes. So I asked if I could run it for the time being and guess what..
. So...so far here what we have agreed upon is we are focusing on 1 environment this round and its steampunk while others suggested dieselpunk later on.An both are great ideas.
So we are combining these two themes. So think of a world where the steampunk era is ending and a new era is beginning of dieselpunk and what impact that would have on the social and economic level and why this would happen.Because every time a new industrial movement happens its to adapt to some kind of change.(example of this would be in our reality we want to get off oil so we are looking into alternative fuels due to cost and etc). An the location is still undecided from what I can see. So I would like everyone who hasnt suggested a location or idea for one for the poll please do so.
In this thread we will be moving to the next step and finding inspiration for the environment and also brainstorm about what kind of world this is so we can get a central idea of what would belong and what wouldnt. So also think about where would this exist and why and who would live here when considering inspiration. Inspiration that should be covered is:
>The People.who exist here?
>What is would be the world issue that would and may effect the environment and how people go about there lives and how they live in it?
>Architecture aswell as what props what be find here based on the location
*(example of this would be in our current society our social and world issue is terrorism and that what drives alot of issues and world problems)
So first question is what should the world be like where this environment exist.We are including this in the inspiration thread to promote thinking about a larger picture. Instead of just having a cool looking a environment there is a story being told all around you.
*Remember even bad ideas can promote good one so talk about what's on your mind.
Note: Since DW4 is coming up depending on where we are at when it starts we may slow down some around that time since some may want to compete in the next month.
