What if..?
« on: March 18, 2011, 07:53:34 AM »
A game I found on another forum, the poster answers the question from the poster above and then posts on of there own. Extra points if you can keep it game related, I'll go first. "How different would the IG world be if muls were able to breed?"

You guys can't follow directions. :P
(1) First ANSWER the question from the poster above, then
(2) POST a question of your own.

"How different would the IG world be if muls were able to breed?"

Mul-mating would be strictly regulated in the city states to keep the populations small and subservient; many male muls would be castrated.  The threat of self-sustaining nests of escaped muls would weigh heavily on the minds of Borsail and Wisanthrope heads: not so much because of the military danger as because someone else might attack, enslave the muls, and break their diopoly.

My question:

   What if braxat were a playable race?
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

Then I my next character would be one.

What if the 'rinth was hanging off of Tuluk's ass instead of Allanak's?

Then we'd see an influx of the most polite and subtle shankings-of-bitches ever seen on Zalanthas.

What if Qzzrbl, Synthesis, and Yam all had a love child, and it was a halfling raised by Tuluki social standards?
Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.

Then Allanak would have to grow trees for its citizens to hug, and Tuluk would be the filth-pit of scum and villainy.

What if all the clans that have been closed in the past 5 RL years were reopened?

We'd need to have some taverns re-opened and wilderness monster spawns ramped up.  Naturally, we'd probably also need 10x as many staffers.

EDIT: DAMN!

It'd probably shut down.   :-\

What if there was a bug that started spawning new characters with steel-toed boots?

They'd be a decline in other mounts and nobles would happily stuff there faces with honey.                                                                                            What if the dragon never existed?

They'd chill with their kryl cousins until their failure to pay rent sends them along. But not before creating some super-kryl.

What if a Mul was born to a free dwarf who raised the Mul similarly free (keeping it from the cities)?

It wouldn't be a Mul. Only human females give birth to muls.

What if female dwarf, mul and half-giant PCs were as common as the males?
