Okay, today has been a long day so I’m going to keep this quick. I have an exercise for you, and you’ve done this kind before. This is a setting exercise, and most of you have probably done these before, but just in case: I’m going to give you a set of criteria. Your job is to design a setting based on those criteria.
1) Your setting must be a bar.
2) Your setting must at a lengthy history (perhaps the bar is 200 years old?) that comes with it’s own mythology.
3) Your setting may be fantasy, sci-fi, or modern. You setting may also be a modern super-hero setting.
4) Your setting must include a general outline of either the owner or the bartender (or they could be one-in-the-same).
5) Your setting must include at least two ‘famous’ regulars, and you must have character sketches for those regulars. At least one should be notable in some way (perhaps he/she’s a famous writer, a politician, or the captain of the guard, etc).
