Infinite Worlds Theory and Dickish People
Thinking about the world, like I usually do when I’m bored, I realized something.
As long as people believe that there can be infinite worlds with an infinite amount of outcomes, there is a world where all people are nice.
Of course, this world where all people could be nice could have the catch that being nice is considered being a dick, and everyone does it because that’s how they’re raised.
Honestly, if this was the case, I probably wouldn’t mind it. Who cares why someone is nice, just let them be nice.
Also, there could be just this one instance where everyone is nice, even though they are dickish.
That means that in every other universe and area of existence, those people are dicks.
But if they’re nice but dickish in one world, and completely dickish in all worlds, that means that those people are are infinitely dickish.
I’m sure we know a few people like this.
People that are dicks throughout the cosmos, stretching throughout infinity.
Time Nazis? Sounds great.
So I was meandering around the FLGS looking for some new gear a few weeks ago, and a GURPS book caught my eye. I ended up getting a print at OfficeMax of their free lite rules ($4 for a 40-page professional-looking bound print job? thanks). I caught my eyes online later at the GURPS setting book Infinite Worlds. It’s pretty much about time travel being made into a commodity and our timeline taking advantage of other timelines, when OH MANG TIME NAZIS. Yeah, Nazi Germany developed time travel in an alternate dimension, and now we’re competing with them as they conquer alternate timelines.
Well, it turns out I don’t really like GURPS that much, but this campaign setting is just flawless, so I’m adapting it for Savage Worlds (using the Super Powers Companion). Told my group about it and it’s a go. I’m pretty much just creating my own setting based on the same premise, while mining Infinite Worlds for gems. If all turns out right, my game will be a slightly camp timeline-hopping adventure filled an odd group. So far, these are the character concepts that I’ve heard about from the group members:
-Super hero with super speed
-Guy with a jetpack
Hopefully this game turns out to be gold. If anyone has any ideas for a plot hook, shoot them my way!
