The requisite six months has passed, so let's see if we can whip up some more frenzied interest in exercising our creative splurges.

The possible topic list:

I think it would still need some particular theme laid down to focus our ideas a little. Nothing in the way of psi, magic or what-have-you's, but perhaps the possibility of a new super-science/super-tech.

Stratopunk
Cyberpunk, but above the clouds. The masses live with their feet in the mud, but the elite float above it all in stratoscrapers, dirigible-cities, up-draft towers and tensegrity spheres.

Biopunk Space Opera
Really dig deep into genetic engineering without the shackles of scientific plausibility holding us back... among the stars!

Urban Fantasy- Witches and Dragons
This Vote Up an Urban Fantasy thread got as far as deciding it was about witches and dragons, which is where I started to get intrigued, when it petered out. Can we flesh that out more?

Psionic Fantasy
There's no magic, but psi takes its place. Strains of Julian May's Pliocene Exile.

Fantasy Space Opera
Magic and dragons fantasy, done on a galactic scale.

Monster Hunter Setting

Single Town/City Projects
A Fantasy City
A Cyberpunk City
A Cyberpunk Corporation
A Space Opera Space Station
A DF Dungeon/Wilderness Region
Adding to these, there have been a couple of intriguing posts on the forums that might be cool to go into depth on.

Knurlkyth- (E)'s Dwarven City with as an agricultural model- there's a good seed for a localised setting here, so we could flesh it out around what he's done so far (permission permitting), although I do realise (E) might have done some more work that he hasn't posted yet.

Astromancer's Long-Way-From-Home Colonial Space Empires sci-fi setting seed- Astromancer seems to like making brief, punchy setting seeds, but it'd be a good exercise to flesh one out in depth somewhat.

Any other suggestions, either as fresh ideas or from recent forum activity?

Feel free to take the Knurlkyth seed and run with it, I would really like to see how it goes.

As I said on my thread, I'm proud to be picked. Have joyous fun.

Is there a preference for either of those, or should I toss a coin?

It might be take a couple of days to get anything started, as there's other stuff I'm meant to be doing at the moment.

I'm torn, but both of those are very good.

Thanks for going ahead with this, (E). I was going to get to it, but my work held me up until last night.

In the meantime, I've been thinking about the dwarven city a fair amount, so this was the one I was going to start with.

Then we'll move on to this one next when the other one runs out of steam.

Another idea to add to the list a LitRPG world. There is the added aspect of creating a pseudo-game system. Dungeons and other gaming tropes like levels and stats are natural occurring parts of the setting.
