A mundane and believable backdrop makes the fantasy elements all the more impressive. This even holds for out-there settings like Planescape; the slums and slum dwellers felt authentic and grounded the wild and wonderful elements in reality.

Take into account whatever limitations of the engine Obsidian manages to create, whether they be AI or graphical in nature. A big part of why some of the crazier mods manage to work in a game like Skyrim is because it's a world where with sufficient points into pickpocket you can rob every single NPC in the world of their *clothes* with everyone none the wiser, or a giant can send a bear going, in the words of Alan Shepard, "For miles and miles and miles" in defiance of the laws of physics."

"Turned wrong way round, the relentless unforeseen was what we schoolchildren studied as 'History,' harmless history, where everything unexpected in its own time is chronicled on the page as inevitable. The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”


-Philip Roth, The Plot Against America
