What's your favorite setting?
Seriously, think about it. What setting do you play in, or have played in, that you could probably play in forever and not get tired of it? Do you prefer high fantasy with the clash of good versus evil, magic running rampant, and noble heroes to fight dastardly villains? Perhaps the dystopic and high tech worlds of cyber-punk catch your fancy? The heroics and drama of space opera? Just what setting do you love so much you could play in it forever, or seemingly forever?
For me, I have a lot of settings that I really like. Fantasy is always good, as is space opera. I'm a particular fan of the Halo universe and Star Wars if you want to get into detailed specifics. But I'm not sure what setting type I could play in forever unhindered. In fact, if I had to choose I'd probably cop out and choose super heroes.
Why? Well, you can do anything with super heroes. You can be a rogue, prowling sky scrapers and making impossible thefts or the avatar of a god who fights with sword and shield against the forces of darkness. You can be a detective, moving through shadowy corners to find that next clue. You can be involved in titanic space battles that swing the fate of the universe with every blow. Plus you can fly. That's pretty awesome right?
I think with all my hankerings and tastes, and even despite the fact that I've been really jonesing hard for some space opera in my life lately, that if I had to choose a favorite it'd be super heroes. There's just so much you can do with them.
What about you?
