What is AN's Setting Alignment? The Resurrection

Postby FenexOrg » Tue Mar 09, 2021 6:57 am

For those not in the know, there was a previous thread that had this premise as the main topic. The Setting alignment is in a sense similar to the Moral Alignment that many may be familiar with, but with completely different axises. For one the Setting alignment uses the Noble-Grim and Bright-Dark axis. These terms can be best defined as:

Noble - A setting in which individuals can affect meaningful change in their world. A setting in which the status quo is often (successfully) challenged would be a good example of this.

Grim - The opposite to Noble. Individuals in this setting rarely hold any meaningful power to affect the world. Change is not only difficult but may in fact be impossible.

Bright - The world is wonderful and colorful. Life is safe and its inhabitants are usually quite stable.

Dark - The world is unsafe, desolate. Life is miserable for the average person and its inhabitants struggle from day to day. Stories in these settings usually take place in a dystopia of some form.

The Fenex Hegemony is an insurgent organization/space fleet that seeks to spreads its ideals by force and move towards overthrowing their Creator Deity. Most of the economy and military is made up of robotic workers and warriors, although human insurgents are commonly deployed in areas where robots either cannot be diverted or simply enter. Currently locked in a three-way war with Heaven and Hell as well as the Loyalists of Toreador.

Honestly, to me, it feels like Tsaurus is very nearly in the True Neutral setting, as it seems to be striving for a mostly realistic primary setting. Buut, it also slightly leans in the Neutral Dark setting a bit too, what with the fascism and that sort of stuff. Overall, however, I'll still say True Neutral.
edit: Hm. Honestly, I don't think there's quite as much to go on with AN, but it seems mostly hopeful and good, so I'll say Noble Neutral.

The Avant-Gardist State of Patagonia ~~~ Gauchos and Mapuches, orgies and parties, avant-garde art, futurism, syndicalism, the New Man, general strikes, the glorification of violence, spiritual nationalism, esoteric occultism, CIA spooks, Spartanian homosexuality, public sodomy, and more
    Triomphe du Surréalisme (1968)
  • There are many things said about Patagonia but few actually know what goes on behind the Andes mountains. Tales of human depravation and man's inner darkest self run wild. A place where avant-garde culture flourish and the artist don't fear the censor. Where all live bold and free under the gaze of the Patron. Yet all dreams will come to an end soon...

SP is fron what I can see definitely dark. Life for those in South Patagonia is often short-lived and while colorful is also full of hardship in one way or another.

The question then lies on the noble-grim scale and I must say SP might actually be Noble considering the importance they play on individuals shaping the world (or at least Patagonia).
乱 It is the year 1,942 C.E. and the Pacific is on Fire 乱
The Neo Wokou Raiders is an organization that aims at prolonging the pacific theater for as long as possible, even if it means having to fight both the IJN and U.S. Navy. They are lead by a man who claims to be the reincarnation of Tyr, the Norse God of justice and war. They are also a cult that believes in a mixture of Shintō and Norse beliefs. TL;DR, Alternate Universe Edgy Akatora's AWOL misadventures.

The Victoran "Empire" is a FFT Interstellar Alliance/Federation with a Roman and Gothic aesthetic that is engaged in a Great Crusade against 'the Enemy'. The setting is a horrid combination of 40k and Doctor Who. No, the Empire isn't oppressively imperialist. No, the Empire isn't British nor is it's name referencing Queen Victoria.
NS Stats are for nerds. I don't use them and neither should you (if you must, use stats as an indicator of the "average Civilized World"). With that said, according to this index, the Victoran Empire is a Tier 10, Level 8, Type 9 civilization with a Power Comparator of 3.9
