Ok, here's my idea: A powerful Kobold sorcerer enacts a ritual that transforms all the members of the "higher" races (Humans, Elves, Dwarves, etc.) into members of the "lower" races (Orcs, Goblins, Kobolds, etc.), as well as making himself the ruler of the newly transformed world. He is relatively benevolent, pretty much letting everyone go about their business as long as they don't try to usurp him or change the world back. That give the PCs a few options; they could just go along with it, they could try to get the world back to normal, or they could try to STOP people from getting the world back to normal. Anyone interested?

Sounds kinda cool.

I'd be up for that.

Sounds interesting, although I would need to hear one thing from you.

How the fuck does any sorcerer, let alone a kobold sorcerer, change the race of EVERY higher-race being in the world? Even if he could devise a spell, it would most likely kill him, and many many others. But let's say he does do it, sacrifices himself and, i dunno, say...his clan. I think Moraddin and Corellon Larethian and Garl Glitter-whatever would all throw a shit-fit when suddenly they have no more worshippers because the dwarven, elven and gnomish races no longer existed.

Even if he could do it, I doubt it would be active for very long, because the gods would reverse it.

But if you can answer all of these concerns, I might be interested. :-D

Hey, it was just an idea. Maybe all the gods of the savage races prevent them from doing it.

I think it's a great idea. You just have to make it plausible. At least, if I am going to play. If you can get enough people to play that don't care about it's plausibility, don't worry about it and have fun, I just won't be joining you.

Um, it's very plausible to cast that spell...their called staves and scrolls and tomes and memorized spells that have been modified. If elminster can escape Hell, a sorcerer cac deevolve the world...lol

Maybe he took energy from another source such as slaves or undead. If their is something like that it would be cool, also what would the world be like (Big Picture).
