New random thought. I don’t know when I could get to it, but I will throw it out there.
I had a dream about baby kangaroos not too long ago. Which made me think of the potential for a fantasy game. The thought process is pretty obvious, so I won’t bother to explain it.
Now here’s the thing about this fantasy story. Yes, you have elves, orcs and like four types of tiny humans that are all similar but also not. Now here’s a question for you. If elves and orcs existed, what form do you think they would have taken in the prehistoric era?
Where do you think orcs would have evolved on the evolution scale? Would they have been bigger and more dangerous or did they develop to what they are over time? What if five million years ago, elves were the most dangerous things on the planet and they hunted the dinosaurs to extinction? What if gnomes were really vicious pack beasts that left nothing behind of their prey?
What if magic had to be evolved over time and was a really unstable force that caused as much problems as it solves? What if ancient primitive imp ancestors were some of the most fearsome things on the planet?
I’m just spouting theories. I don’t know what exact angle I would go with, but if the idea sounds worth pursuing to other people, I might look into later. Come to think of it, I think someone had a similar concept and told me about before, but I don’t remember who.
