i think a futuristic setting would allow for less restrictive styling as we can borrow apparel design from pretty much whatever era we want, and would allow some flexibility in the design.
could also allow for non-human characters, like aliens or other races in characters like the sage
I suggested a space pirate theme, maybe victorian england horror/steampunk, or old west also. Matt you suggested a 1920s styled futuristic setting that seemed like a really cool idea, my working knowledge of the styles of that time is a bit limited and will require some more research to ensure interesting variety while maintaining the right look
Lemme know what you guys think. Will check back soon
"Today, a young man on acid, realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves... here's Tom with the weather." - Bill Hicks
