What planet?

All right, we've got a dillema. There are people in the chat RolePlaying Wing City as on a seperate planet, and people in the forusm RPing it as on Earth. This does a good job of molesting continuity, so we need to decide which it's going to be, for the sake of keeping the RP together.

Personally, I'm for it being on a different planet. Lack of originality aside, it allows us to get creative with the surrounding areas, as well as keeps things like Demons destroying the planet from happening to Earth.

When it comes my day to die.

I say it should be outside of Earth, as it allows us to have a slight mystery about it, and common names could be retoconned away as simple humans naming their colony's cites the same as on their own homeworld. This aslo allows us to add the Gundam elements to a greater extent

I say outside, as well. I'd even venture to take the approach of "Terra" - an Earth-LIKE planet in another arm of the Galaxy. I'd even venture to say that's where Metro City is, as well. Earth is a historical location, it shouldn't be too far from reality.

Often times, issues like this are even best approached with a "look the other way" method, glazing over the technical details.

Integrating a gundam world isn't important, really. This is the multiverse - let's not tie it to any one storyline.
