    What's your take on good old Sword & Sorcery Fantasy as a topic/genre?

    I feel that might give you enough flexibility to pick your scenario, characters and events. It would also provide thematic consistency, and there's a lot of material out there to help you. Heck, if you need ideas, flip through a D&D rulebook pdf on the interwebz and you should be able to come up with something interesting.

    We would probably need a definition of what the sub genre is along with something like,

    What it includes

    What it discounts

    Just to ensure we don't accidentally write (wander) outside of what we're meant to be writing.

    Fantasy is a VERY broad genre. There are countless sub-genres to it in general. If we actually want project-consistency, we should find a "subgenre" or theme to use, rather than leave "fantasy" up to each and every user's interpretation
