Quote from: Natespank on February 15, 2011, 12:33:37 AMHey, cool ideaCan you clarify the mission statement though? Are you forging an edition-non-specific multiverse, or one for use with a specific edition? Is this similar to an encyclopedia or will it be in the form of a playable product? Or is it more of a history?It seems a little sketchy to me to attempt to combine them all since they had such various unrelated creators. Gygax disliked 4e a lot, so his "vision" of what the world of D&D ought to be must strongly conflict with the current WotC group. The changed mechanics alters the nature of the worlds as well- no more 1 hit kills against level 1-3 characters (well, mostly none).I'm not sure there's a need to neatly combine the settings like you suggest- except maybe as an interesting scholarly work That's something I'd like to go through. Gygax intrigues me.
QuoteMy hope is to have 2nd edition be the home for the original Gygaxian cosmology.
