    Does Axel's fire count as magic in this world?

    You could probably throw in some technobabble about his inner mechanisms containing a special mechanism that creates liquid oxygen from the air that he breathes, and then the liquid oxygen is pumped down one arm with a pressurization system, where it is set on fire then sprayed out a metal tube. Basically, he'd have a flamethrower built into his arm.

    I'm so confused... where did my post-nuke world go? And why are there suddenly magic weapons and things? What happened to "Humans only"?

    The stitchpunks are part of the post-nuke world. They were built by a human scientist to be a sentient species on the Earth if the humans died out or something.

    But didn't we say right at the beginning that there would be only humans in this plot as a sentient species?

    I've already disallowed fantasy races and sentient cockroaches. Because this is supposed to be about humans. Not only that, but people are giving themselves magical weapons.

    It's pretty much the only set of groundrules I established, and everyone's trying to break them

    Magical weapons how? The flamethrower is rooted in science that would actually work!
    EDIT: Wait, is that what you meant or not?

    And I know about the ground rules, but I think it would add another level of awesomenss (oh, and depth as well) to the story if there were stitchpunks. Because stichpunks are awesome.

    It's magic, you're using the tech to explain away a magical weapon so you can get around the 'no magic' rule to use it.

    I don't see how adding "stitchpunks" would do anything but lose depth. This is about humans trying to survive in a post apocalyptic tundra, many of which have gone bonkers from having to survive. Adding Stitchpunks changes the entire theme of the setting.

    Okay then, in that case we don't have to have the "magical" flamethrower, because it's your setting.
    EDIT: I hope that you allow the stitchpunks though...

    And it would add depth because there would be two levels of the story going on, the humans trying to survive the environment, and the stitchpunks trying to survive the wild animals (which, in their opinion, includes the humans).
    See? Depth!

    But the stitchpunks wouldn't take anything away from the human plotline, it would just be a kind of mini-plot.
    EDIT: Or maybe we could just make a different post-apocalyptic world and have the stitchpunks live there. *shrugs*

    It loses depth and distracts from the plot.

    For instance, the plot as it stands is about the struggle of humans to survive, battling human nature, embracing it, or going insane. It's about human interaction in a post-nuclear world where society is gone. The reason there are no other races is because they're an excuse to avoid giving someone good character and explaining it away with "They're an elf". Everyone has their reasons for what they do, and that's what I hope this will be about at its core, even if not all the characters are serious (and I hope they aren't!).

    It's not about Stichpunk Organisation Thirteen fighting mutated rats.

    That makes sense.

    Fair enough. So what about if we had the macro-scale humans-trying-to-survive plot, and a micro-scale stitchpunks-awakening-and-trying-to-survive-on-a-different-scale plot? The stitchpunks would basically be tiny humans, with no special abilities that you haven't approved.

    You could make post-cataclysm FFF plot during the dark ages about this, but we already have plenty of active plots and I don't think we have enough people to run them all at once....

    I fail to understand how this compromise deviates from what you suggested earlier....it's still going to be heavily distracting mini-plot about stitchpunks....

    Please just stray away from any stitchpunks, mechas, robots, golemoids, or sentient constructs and make an insane human being like everybody else....

    No, it wouldn't be, because it would be a tale of survival against the elements instead of a bunch of cloth dolls beating up radiated mice.

    I would like to take this time to point out that only with stitchpunks or other small people can you make an working elevator out of a retractable dog leash.

    Well, you and Zexy were talking about the two ideas at the same time, so I figured they correlated.

    And yeah, it's been happening a lot lately, the mods are trying to figure it out.
