Yay that was fun.

My game which is probably not a game is called "Raven's Progressive Narratives" and it is a version of Raven's Progressive Matrices from an alternate reality with a slightly different cultural definition of intelligence.

Let me know if you want to take a look.

“The objectives of celebrating an International Men’s Day include focusing on men’s and boys’ health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care. The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values.”

Happy international men's day.

Epic fantasy quest D&D background and basic concept (doesn't every epic fantasy need a creation myth?)

When the Gods made the first world, there were none inside of it who could understand what they have done. And so they made two things with the capacity to understand the Gods' creation and praise them for it: Good and Evil.

But Good and Evil fought with each other and would not praise the Gods, but only seek to enlist their aid against the other. In the end, they killed each other, and that was the end of the first world.

A clever God took them from the underworld, breathed life into them, and remade the world so that every thinking being would have good and evil inside of them in equal parts, and thus they would not fight and be able to praise the Gods. But these creatures instead fought with themselves, in their hearts, and wept for unhappiness, and did not praise the Gods, and finally could not even bring themselves to eat and were all destroyed. That was the end of the second world.

A clever God took took life again from the underworld, and this time split the world into two parts: one half for Good and one half for Evil. And, for a time, everything was as it should be: they grew and built cities and temples and praised the Gods and were righteous or wicked as suited their characters. But then, after a thousand years, each found the continent of the other. A great war erupted between Good and Evil and in that war all things were killed. That was the end of the third world.

A clever God took life again from the underworld, and created a new people, neither Good nor Evil, and set them to rule over the world that they survived. He locked the spirits of Good and Evil in millenial prisons, so that Evil might rule the world for a thousand years, and Good might then in turn, and so on, that they might never again destroy each other. This is our world, the fourth world.

Evil reigned for a thousand years of horror and darkness, when finally the Champions of Light overthrew their empire and set up the Goodly Nations, which in their unanimity have ruled the world (more or less) to this day. Our government is not without its flaws, but it is truly for the best, and all within it are afraid of the coming era.

It is the year 995. Evil is returning to the world. As the Chosen of Light, heir the Champions who overthrew Evil a thousand years ago, you have a chance -- but only a chance -- to fight back Evil, break the cycle, and defend the people of the world.

(Humans and maybe Hobbits are the creatures of the Fourth World. Elves, Dwarves, Orcs, Goblins, Dark Elves, etc are creatures of the Third World, and thus powerful, old, but also somewhat peripheral to the politics of the world. Gods are not generally worshipped individually: Every cleric serves "the Gods" as a whole although they might get special favors from one or special emnity for another. The names and natures of the Gods are a matter of dispute between cultures and so on.)

I enjoy how much Good/Evil annoys everyone. I feel like an excellent troll.
