You mean Monty and company should have just gone for the style of the trailers which was “action you could find from stick figures on Newgrounds with just enough story to keep people invested when the high from the cool action wears off? Even if the story sounds like something from a shitty anime inspired webcomic or a Final Fantasy fan game that got hit with a C&D? I’ve heard that too. Hell, you could say the first two volumes had that Avenue going.It really is low hanging fruit, but sometimes you need that in your life. It's what I call a "Kitchen Sink" setting, I'm sure you can figure out why I use that term. These sorts of settings can work but you tend to either need to just embrace the absolute batshit insanity similar to what RIFTS did, or align yourself with an overarching theme/feel similar to The Forgotten Realms.
