This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I am thinking of doing something I have not done since early high school. Homebrew a campaign. Seeing that I am in my 40's now, it has been a while. Leaned toward published adventures in recent years now that we are trying to get groups together. Leave it to my mind to lead me down a path to make it more difficult however. I am really excited about a new campaign / setting idea but not sure how to make it work.  I would like to start PC's on earth in a modern or near modern time & tech. Something will cause the PC's to be jolted into an alternate universe of earth ("not necessarily a different time") in which human's civilization did not evolve (or even exist at all) while other creatures may have (catfolk / wolfolk / lizardfolk). Technology is far less advanced, at least by PC's normal world standards, but magic also exists in this new world. The new world would fit into high fantasy and work with many of the systems out there. The old would only be a part of the campaign for a short time, but would be modern of course. So, the question! How do I deal with character creation?! What systems should I use? In a perfect world I don't even want the PC's to know they are going to end up in a fantasy (D&D) medieval setting but I don't want them to feel their characters creation was useless either.
