Queen; The Show Must Go On
Moral Wiz here (as you can tell), recruiting for a little game called the Forgotten. Look to game description if you want the concept; basically it's a world hopping game, a la Kingdom Hearts. Just with a touch less manga/Disney focus. This idea's based around the PCs on a mission that takes them from one setting to another. And yes, these settings can be anything. Sci fi is as much on the cards as traditional fantasy, steam-punk or film noir. Anything's viable, at least in theory. That's one of the beauties of running this with Fate; it's rules light, and can be adapted to any setting fairly easily.
Anyway, there are some thematic guidelines, both for world and PCs. See here
for details on them, and how to apply. Don't worry if you don't know the system; it's pretty simple, has an SRD up online, and I'd be happy to talk it through with you
Oh, and for Fate Lovers who want to get an early start on sheet design, I'm primarily going with Dresden's stuff, except for a couple of SotC stunts I might lift. Submerged Power Level fits, when you think Dresden's a touch low power as a setting for a game like this. You guys don't need to worry about stats just yet though; character and setting are the most important things here.
You weren't the Hero, of course. The sort of soul upon whom the whole world turned, the handsome wonder who would set things to right, defeat the evil Empire and get to marry the charming princess once everything was sorted out, and the world was left in peace. Fate never bowed to you that way. No matter how you might have hoped for it whilst younger, you weren't the Chosen One.
But you were someone. You had your goals, your hopes and dreams. You were ready to fight for them too. True, you may not have been some sort of world conquering legendary protagonist figure, but you made your way in your world, and who knew? Perhaps one day, you'd get there, stand amidst the legends of your age. Everyone had to come from somewhere, right? Your future lay ahead, and things were looking good.
Only something went wrong. Something... strange.
You can't tell when, or how it happened, but things... faded. Dissolved, cut to black. Things weren't truly over, they simply... stopped. Events, time, places, people, there are none of these things here for you now. Just you, alone, floating in a sea of emptiness. Eternal, unending absence; of light, sound or even time. A void that most people couldn't even begin to imagine..
Yet in that perfect, unending emptiness, one thought echoes, returns to you, again and again, ringing out across all of infinity. Yours or another's, it makes no difference, as it pounds away at you, again and again, no matter what you do..
You are alone.
