I'm curious if anybody ever thought of an RPG-like thing with main characters (roles, units, or whatever) being (con)cultures (and conlangs) rather than individual people. What do the RPG experts on this list think? Can a set of rules be developed to make the game worth trying? (I think the aims should be a bit special: just having fun while developing a few elaborated conlangs/concultures interacting over many centures or millennia, rather than conquering anything/reaching anywhere etc.) Basilius
