    Well, the alternative is not trying and continue to complain about how no one is interested in making a game that would appeal to us.

    Thought on this a little more. It's no surprise that we're having trouble agreeing on what we should do, but it's still early and we have enough creative people on the forums to make it good in the end.
    Then I started considering the others funding this as well. Let's see how the kickstarter rewards are doing:

    100 npcs all sold out (what are the fucking chances most of them will be heavily armed)
    3 artifacts(says a lot about projected ego versus an item that references you at best)
    7 statues
    10 shrines

    Now as skyway might say, that is 120 confirmed instances of banality by his reckoning and I'm sure we all make frowny faces at the kind of wank the other 116 are going to add to the game unless they are our cool forum buddies and there are no forum buddies with the codex.
    In other words if we seasoned observers of the gaming community are going to sneer at the stupid shit they'll all make Brian Fargo add to the first turn based apocalypse game in 14 years, we should take the higher ground first and set an example or at least not look quite as bad.

    Which now leads into my point:
    1) The multifaceted spirit of Codexia should be manifest in our choice of creations here, certainly
    2) The multifaceted memes of Codexia should not, unless they would be comprehensible on their own to a normally brained turn based gamer bro and if possible not completely wear out their welcome after the 2nd playthrough. this probably needs a useful or interesting function to the area/items/mobs
    3) No internet names, perhaps normal names if they fit in, but individual personalities or quirks should be fine until they violate rule 2, which probably rules out quite a bit
    4) The money is going straight to the people making Wasteland 2 anyway so the most important part is already done here.

    Here is my gloriously shitty example of implementation

    awww yeah taste that warped caricature


    no I don't know about wasteland stats forgives me k

    Honestly though I kinda wish Brian Fargo would have done the higher kickstarter rewards differently. Say, at 5000 bucks, you get eligible for 'Area sponsorship' and when they're ready with the design docs and brainstorming the WL team will send you/your community a list of additional possibles to the main gameworld to back with your money, and then work with you from there onwards on fleshing it out if you really think you have red hot ideas, or you can just let them take it from there. With a small stipulation that they reserve the right to overrule anything completely out of place like BTE style funs.

    eg. Wasteland 2 gets a cannibal gigolo den with attached quest and in the credits you see special thanks: rpgcodex.net for sponsoring - Cannibal Gigolo area, and perhaps below that gamebanshee.com for sponsoring - Anachronistic Joust area

    So yeah if nothing else, at least our fair codex will not be part of the "I can't believe they let them add this circlejerk bullshit in, I guess money speaks loudest no matter the game" wasteland 2 purity ruined threads and "wow, the geniuses at XXX place sure spent their money well lolololololol rpg gamers" that will invariably be created after the game is released.

    So we are indeed sending DU to the Developer Orgy?

    Edit: And stupid me. I haven't seen the actual home page of the Codex since the switch. I've just had my shortcut tab send me straight to the forums.
