I had the idea to create a world-building thread, where the people of the forum can get together and create a campaign setting together. I posted this idea in the â€œTalk about this forumâ€ sticky for advice, and someone came up with the idea of an in character world building thread, where the posters play as deities creating the world. The general consensus was that this would be awesome.
So, the Fish of the Universe has laid the Divine Caviar, and from it erupts the multitudinous gods. Each, seizing a scale from the Fish of the Universe, determines his or her sphere of influence. Domains start out broad and, as the world comes into form and portfolios start to overlap, gods can give up broad but ineffectual influence for a narrower domain over which they will have greater control and freedom of design.
I, seizing the brain of the Fish, take the role of overdeity; I will not interfere in the creation process except to resolve disputes between gods. Each player must name his or her domain as they seize a scale, and then set about creating a campaign setting from scratch - out of the void of the Fish.
