Here's A question I've been meaning to ask for quite a while.

Artistically and lore-ly speaking, What genre would the lol universe be in? It seems to me a cross of medieval, fantasy, and steam/techno-punk concepts, but I don't really know for sure. Anything concrete to add RIOT?


Technology and magic can be meshed well, even with very high-class tech. Just look at warhammer 40k.

WE ARE TEH SPESS MEHRINS! WE ARE TEH EMPRAH'S FURY!

we are teh eldarz, and everyone hates us because we act like ********** all the time

we are chaos, we are strong

we iz orks, we iz strong

so on so forth. plenty of magic and spellcasting in warhammer!

Final Fantasy 6 (American 3) is an amazing blend of tech and magic (even going so far as to have technology that replicates magic). It was one of my first forays into such. Chrono trigger gets special mention here as there was ONE timeframe where both existed together naturally, but FF6 still did it best, IMO.


Gotta bring Arcanum: Of Steamwork and Magick Obscura into the discussion as well if we're naming other games that have tried in the magic/tech, fantasy/sci-fi blendings.
