erfworld focus's on the story behind the game, if you want to build an erfworld game you should too. otherwise all you have is a tbs that looks like saturday morning cartoons are engaged in war.
Beneath the grumpiness , I sense an opportunity here.
You see, we can think, and we should think, about the world of Erfworld. Make a reasonably comprehensive set of laws (that are also amenable to being creatively broken, no less!) and construct around them what looks like a big place where stuff can happen.
That's because many of us talking here are coders (maybe among other things).
Now however, about that stuff. That can happen.
It won't be the stuff that happened in the comic obviously. We would need at least one person to write storylines, or story guidelines. Populate the world with peoples with colourful histories, weird habits and skeletons in the closet.
