As an example, nearly everyone on earth knows about dragons even though there is no credible evidence that they ever existed.  We cannot go see dragon ruins, etc..  The Mythrunians are considerably more primitive... and if such legends happen to be based on real history (now passed down for 1000 years or whatever) then they might be pretty pervasive despite any evidence of their existence.

Kind of like the bogeyman.

Actually, dragons are an interesting example because they hold a similar place in Mythrunian legend.  The last time one was seen was long enough ago that they are now legend.  You cannot find actual evidence of their existence... only the stories, pictures, carvings, etc..  Some will believe they are just a story or superstition, but like most widely held superstitions, in the back of their mind they will still believe a little bit.

Up until "our people" started visiting the worlds, Magic was in a similar state, too.  Beyond the stuff that seems like some form of alchemy/chemistry, many magic devices don't/didn't work for the natives.  Kind of like if you found the actual Excalibur but it didn't do magic things for you then it was "just another pretty sword".  It might have cultural significance but is otherwise just an artifact.
with all the talk of physics, AI, skills and more i had completely forgot that dragons are supposed to be central to the game. they are still pretty central right?

i think the confusion is because dragons are not secrets... not once has paul hidden there existence so unnaturallife only just realizing there will be dragons must mean he either has a terrible memory or is just silly for not listening earlier

Mythruna should be a fantasy world similar to that of Narnia or Middle Earth.

It's more of a D&D fantasy. A.k.a fantasy of everything. + steam punk-ish

Well, D'n'D IS inspired by Tolkien's works... But I agree, Mythruna's world DOES seem more inspired by D'n'D or Warhammer... Actually, on that point, Paul: did you mention somewhere that some Reptilians will be more civilized... Does that mean city building civilized.?

In ancient times, they were.  We'll have to wait and see if those cities materialize... and/or if any are still inhabited.  They would be underwater.

Mythruna could simply be an alternative universe that the occasional Earthling is teleported into by means of a ring, a wardrobe, a storybook, or a dream.  These people could be from whatever time period you could think of, from Ancient Mesopotamia to the Modern USA.  Humans would not be native inhabitants of Mythruna, but other species, including dwarves, elves, catpeople, etc., will be native.  Because so many different cultures intermingle in Mythruna, there will be vast varieties of architecture, transportation, and culture in general.  Time will not be consistent with Earth time in Mythruna.  Maybe even inversely proportional.  So in the distant future in Earth Time, Mythruna will be forming.  But at the time of the Earth's formation will be Mythruna's destruction.  Maybe Mythruna, as an alternate universe to that of ours, is almost like a mirror; everything backwards on the time spectrum.  But idk.

Oh yeah, and organisms live a lot longer there; our life expectancy on Earth is approximately 80 years.  But on Mythruna, because it is a more suitable environment for harboring life than Earth, maybe the perfect amount of Solar Radiation, our life expectancy would be 2000 years.

I think I've explained the "back story" pretty well at this point.  I've left a lot of the particulars vague on purpose so as not to impose motivation onto the players.

And are you hypothesising that the only reason we don't live to be multi-millenial beings is an imperfect quantity of solar radiation..? As opposed to Neural decay and occasional errors in our genetic makeup?
