    Washington D.C. is a great place to start. Everyone there lives in their own little fantasy land.

    Yes, you should go sane. Insanity isn't a good thing to live with, friend.

    Get a notebook, write everything you think of down (even if it seems stupid to you at the time).

    How about a land where wealth is distributed equally and everyone has nice things.

    Well...I don't know what you have thought of and not thought of, but if you're not in a time crunch, might I suggest some anime that features some prop driven airplanes? I know Sky Crawlers is a good one, but to me, that was more along the lines of WW2, especially with the aircraft designs. It might even help to find some diary entries from soldiers and pilots of WW1 to get a unique perspective of what people went through. If anything, look up the Canadian pilot Major William Barker. Read up on what he did that earned him the Victoria Cross during WW1.

    I hope you've learned a valuable lesson regarding asking the members of TFW2005 for serious advice, Shortwave.

    So you're mixing fantasy with WW1-era technology and stuff? My suggestion would be to play around with the various fantasy species.

    How are dwarves, elves, hobbits, etc handling the transition into a technological world? The dwarves love making things, right? So maybe they're even more well-off and happy than the humans. But Elves rely heavily on magic, and seem to have a real thing for nature. So maybe show how there are rising tensions between the elves and the other races.

    And dragons. Def needs dragons. Let's say the dragons are running out of food and the pollution is making them sick. How do they react? Will they fight the humans and dwarves for their land? Maybe they band together with the Elves and attempt to start a war and push the humans and dwarves out of power.

    Dragon is not a gender-specific term.

    Hmmm. How about a world where TFW2005 members answer honest questions with sincerity?

    Seriously though, fantasy worlds are limited only by your imagination. That's beauty of it. You can do anything from conventional high fantasies featuring elves, dwarves, goblins, dragons, trolls, fairies, etc. Or you can do something comparatively mundane, like a world wear people can change their skin color at will and the ramifications what a power like that might have on society.

    It can be anything and everything you want it to be.

    If that was true, We would all carry the same amount of money and it would put all humans at a base level, Where.. There would be no ambition to do productive work and society would collapse, Those who worked the hardest would rise amd those who failed to understand the worth of their actions would fall, Fall into povety and eventually die. Then society would restart with the hard workers leading on, Until the cycle starts to continue.. Unless Humanity can learn not to repeat the past.

    Regardless of whethor or not you deserve money. Society, Humanity and the world does not work that way.


    It never will, And that would be an unfare world.. A world not worth living in.
    A world of no satisfaction.

    And Nolan North is president of the world!
    YES! NOLAN FOR PRESIDENT!!
