comment Acting role vs Player personality
I think that this is exactly right, Cat. A big point of GMing is ensuring that the PCs have the proper tools and situations to avoid such mind numbing things. Characters should be played as characters. That is NOT to say that in a silly or high-levity group that you can't goof of or do something 'metagamed' at all - but for the majority of the time, you want to play the character - that's the whole point!

comment World Development - A Fresh Start
I'm still interested in other comments, but I think that I may go for mostly human, with some humans that are 'altered' for reasons to back-storied to discuss, some racial/regional modifiers, as well as at least two home brew species - who will be introduced a good while later into this campaign, and neither of which will be able to be justifiably 'kill on sight'. At least, that's the way I'm headed.

Shades of grey, definitely... and there's going to be a mix of locales in the world, it certainly won't be all underdarkish, nor will it be surreally cloud city like or anything. It'll be high fantasy, as stated, and probably in a tech 3 environment if you're familiar with GURPS4.

You make a good point regarding species vs race. Most players tend to use race for both, but the point is taken. Are you more prone to envision either a canon or newly created set of species, with reproduction rules set one way or the other, or do you like the all human variations as well? Some people I've talked to think that 'all human' would be too boring. Others feel as lorimer, above. I'm unsure, myself.

That's exactly the kind of responses I'm wanting, thanks. Makes a lot of sense!
