/tg/ has Dungeons and Dragons

/v/ has Wizardry
/lit/ has Lord of the Rings

So what is /co/'s go to for high fantasy?
Dragon Age: Origins
Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning
Conan is sword and sorcery, not high fantasy.
>Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning
The story was lame and the graphics mediocre but damn if that combat wasn't fucking great. Damn shame we're never getting a sequel.
Segrelles' El Mercenario
The Quest for the Time Bird
The Crystal Sword
Lanfeust of Troy
Legends of Percevan
Pierre Alary's Sinbad
The Forests of Opale
The Elves series
Elric, tough I suppose it's /lit/
ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS OF JUSTICE
BRINGING EVIL DOWN
In High Fantasy magic and the supernatural is viewed as common, whereas Sword & Sorcery could also be viewed or actually be an offshoot of Low Fantasy, where magic is rare, dangerous to wield and/or be considered entirely alien, like the Chtulhu Mythos for example
i thought the difference between low and high fantasy was that high fantasy takes place in wholly fictional worlds while low fantasy takes place in "the real world".
LOTR is high, but Harry Potter is low.
nah brah, wiki for the lazy
High fantasy is defined as fantasy set in an alternative, fictional ("secondary") world, rather than "the real", or "primary" world.
The secondary world is usually internally consistent, but its rules differ from those of the primary world.
These stories are often serious in tone and epic in scope, dealing with themes of grand struggle against supernatural, evil forces.
In some fiction, a contemporary, "real-world" character is placed in the invented world, sometimes through framing devices such as portals to other worlds or even subconscious travels.
Low fantasy stories are set either in the real world or a fictional but rational world, and are contrasted with high fantasy stories which take place in a completely fictional fantasy world setting with its own set of rules and physical laws.
He-Man occurs in a fictional world, the characters are above your regular Joe, magic is recurrent, and if memory serves me right I remember there are portals to other worlds, so I'd say it goes on High Fantasy
For /co/ films
Fire and Ice
Dark Crystal (not sure)
I know, all they do on /v/ is talk about SJWs and shit, dont you hate that?
I mean i go to a videogames board to talk about Videogames, not see how much the SJW boogeyman is making you angry.
They arent going to take away your games, its so annoying that /v/ is so full of cis male white virgin racist misogynists.
There's also Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre
>Oh wait, the franchise belongs to Squaresoft
Science fantasy. Specifically He-Man is a second-gen sword and planet - Queen Marlena is explicitly from Earth. She-Ra is a planetary romance. It should be noted that they're neither high nor low fantasy, they're heroic fantasy.
Cerebus the Aardvark is the greatest High Fantasy story told in comic form (admitedly, I'm not too familiar with Euro comics)
Then there's Bone if you want something more mainstream; also honorable mention to Mouse Guard
For cartoons, I can only think of Avatar (there's Wakfu but that's also based on a game)
Fables, Mouse Guard, Order of the Stick, Adventure Time, Dungeon and Dragons the Series, Thundarr the Barbarian, Red Sonja
Of those, Fables and Order of the Stick are probably the best examples. Mouse Guard is also fantastic.
But every game after DA:O is shit. Dragon Age doesn't even have that good lore, Origins was only good because it was a good RPG with some decent characters, the lore in General was always generic. Since the sequels lack any of that they're complete shit.
