- Local Gods (RR)
By “Very Local Gods” I mean things like gods associate with specific peoples, tribes, and locations as opposed to a pantheon of gods associated with a portfolio. So more like Semetic tribal gods as opposed to Roman or Egyptian pantheons. This might actually be more of a ban in that I don’t want a “traditional” fantasy pantheon, but I don’t know if we need to actually include gods in the game. But if they do show up, I want them to look like this and not that.
- Elves, Dwarves & Orcs (RR)
By “Elves, Dwarves and Orcs. (Although things that turn out to be analogs are ok.)” I mean if we end up with an fairy-ish race that lives in woods that fine I just don’t want elves. If we end up with gnomes who have similar role to play as dwarfs that’s ok so long as they’re somehow not dwarfs.
