In which the PCs wrote aspects of the world on card and forced the GM to make some sort of sense of the nonsense

Aspects of the world are as follows

  • This takes place in the 1920s
  • The monarchies that fell during WWI remained in power, and it is the 1920s
  • Everyone has innate elemental magic within them.  This has led to street gangs of magic developing all over the world
  • Magic exists, but only elemental magic
  • Everyone has a talking duck companion
  • Animals can talk and are cool
  • We are not on Earth.  We are on the Mars, but as if it were Red Earth, called Mearth
  • Death is not death.  You just ascend to the next world.
