H) Pulp.
B) Ancient Times (Egypt, Sumer, Homeric Greece, ect).
I) WWII.

Out of curiosity, would anyone bother voting up a pulp setting (from scratch, not an alternate history of Earth)? (I'm still unsure how serious I am about the idea.)

Given that we have three votes:
B)Ancient History
H)Pulp
I think of J and K more as Atomic Era, put prefer K

Everybody gets three votes. This is just a rough start, more refinement later.

A) Pre-neolithic (Cavemen, Atlantis, and Mamoths oh my!)

B) Ancient Times (Egypt, Sumer, Homeric Greece, ect)

C) Classical Times (Between 600BCE and 600CE)

D) Medieval Times (When knights were bold and maidens lost...)

E) Early Modern (1500 to 1789)

F) Romantic (1780-1840)

G) Victorian (1840-1900)

H) Pulp (1890-1939)

I) WWII (From the Asian beginings until the Berlin Airlift)

J) Cold War (1945-1965)

K) The Sixies (1960-1975)

L) Recent Past (1970-2000)

As I said, refinements later.

L-- The '80s! 'Nuff said.

J---Punch commies in the groin.

H-- Punch Fu Manchu in the face.

B) Ancient Times. People wouldn't really be freaked out if some of the stories told in the epics were true.
C) Classical Times. I had fun running a game where a super helped out the Persians in Duzakh. Sandals and Powers go together very well, in my opinion. Also the Greeks might get interested in working out how people get super powers.
E) Early Modern. I basically mean Renaissance supers with cool clockpunk gadgets and tons of style. Sliding into the Reformation Era would be fine, but the heroes would probably get a lot more dour and dogmatic.

@ vicky_molokh:
I'm not quite sure how that would work out. Writing modern settings with a history totally different from ours is a lot of work. I'd be more than willing to try, though. Especially since my players basically voted up a totally boring non-alternate history for our pulp game.

I said refinements later, and what about your other votes?

Changed to HBI, though B and I are far, far behind H for me. Then again, I may actually start what I jokingly planned to. Who knows.
