    I knew that you, Fan, and Bahumet, at least, would be totally out.

    I'm NOT recruiting right now anyway. I'm just getting a general idea if there is any interest.

    To be honest, I dislike disallowing a genre on principle.

    To be honest, I kinda like the idea of it.

    No offense intended, but when non-anime people interact with anime picks, it tends to get...heated. And, while other universes may cause the same trouble, I've noticed that it's Anime ones that cause the most.

    Again, no offense intended, just something I noticed.

    As for interest, count me in.

    @ HG: If I didn't have a group of players that agreed with the restriction, I wouldn't run the game.

    Insanowar theme ideas:

    * No anime: As previously mentioned, no picks from anime.

    * All anime: As previously mentioned, all anime picks.

    * No magic/superpowers/future tech: Every pick has to be quasi-feasible in reality. A group of goblins with crossbows and axes would be okay. A group of goblins with fey powers would not.

    * Historical Insanowar: Every pick must be from history, perhaps with a limit on the number of picks from the 20th century.

    * Matched teams: Every player would have to pick from a set of the same constraints. For example: Everyone must have one pick with a superhero theme, one with a fairy tale theme, one with a modern army theme, etc. The narrator would decide on the constraints, and the players could pick them in any order.

    * Three teams: Six players. Each makes their picks, then the narrator randomly pairs the players off to make three teams. You don't know who your ally will be when you are making your picks.

    If anyone is interested in running or altering any of the above, feel free.

    That quasi-feasible in reality sounds interesting. It'd be much easier to gauge powerlevels and such.

    Honestly, since I'm already in a game, and narrating another, I say try to find a different player other than me, one who isn't in a game yet. But, if none show up, I have no problem filling that slot if no one else wants to.

    Come on, just because I picked the same team (mostly) for two insanowars doesn't mean I don't know how to pick 'normal' picks. I just keep getting thrown against Fan, and I like to keep having picks that can (in their own canon) fight his.

    And i picked one non-anime pick! They haven't accomplished much yet, but they will!
