Medieval/renaissance tech and medieval/renaissance culture? I won't lie, if it is, it isn't a revolutionary concept. If you push the post-apocalyptia, it starts to sound a bit like Dark Sun, about which, I cannot complain.

Yes! I love this idea!
The comics/movie Nausicaa of the valley of the wind is what comes to mind instantly, since they use swords and guns in a feudal society with airships, and they have to get new engines dor ships since they eon't know how to make them.

I would love to see a forum game about that.

Faith in yourself is essential. Faith in Humanity is sometimes redundant.

Something a bit like that. There would be mentions of modern day tech, but used with a rather archaic way of speaking or something.

Examples:
Modern day civilizations: "The ancient peoples"
Nukes: "fallen comets"



I was also thinking of where in our world this alternate future RP would take place.

Idea 1: Somewhere in North America, although renamed something else most likely.

Idea 2: The British Isles ravaged by nuclear winter.

How about China? And maybe New Zealand is the only country left with he ability to construct the tools of the Forebearers.

Intriguing.
