    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.

    @Cenica
    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
