Standard Fantasy Setting
rating: 0+x

Basic Information

The default setting of the vast majority of fantasy genre worlds is heavily influenced by Lord Of The Rings and Dungeons & Dragons. Heroic Fantasy and High Fantasy will hit on the majority of these elements. Low Fantasy may skip out on a few key elements to further define themselves.
Usually best summed up as the Middle Ages with extra cheese.

Game and Story Use

  • The default setting archetype works perfectly for diving into games, especially one-shots.
  • Turning it on end, tweaking it a little, or giving it a head-to-toe deconstruction can help breathe new life into a fantasy game.
