    That's cool, Shayuri. Yes, Microscope is all about "being in the moment", examining only the task at hand. Since it seems we're read to move on, let's come to an agreement on which of these Big Picture options we would like to work on:

    THE BIG PICTURE

    1. An arcane field of knowledge - long lost and forgotten by most - has resurfaced, throwing a civilization into chaos!

    2. Civilisation had reached a shining pinnacle of Art, Science, and Magic, but then a Stellar Event occurred, and now all the rules have changed.

    3. A huge spaceship is sent from Earth to colonize a distant world.

    4. An ancient empire rises and falls.

    5. In the darkest recesses of space, the whispering dreams of a sleeping entity call out. A wise but stagnant empire answers the call, hoping to serve the entity in exchange for salvation from inevitable destruction.

    6. A great civilization discovers an ancient secret whose power both threatens the civilization and holds the key to its salvation.


    Link to the brainstorming document.

    That #6 was just me trying to smoosh together the first 5 pitches, so let's ignore that - unless people really dig it, I guess!

    I vote for one of the following:

    1. An arcane field of knowledge - long lost and forgotten by most - has resurfaced, throwing a civilization into chaos!

    2. Civilisation had reached a shining pinnacle of Art, Science, and Magic, but then a Stellar Event occurred, and now all the rules have changed.

    I like 2, 5, & 6. I do like the fusion idea.
