@InspectorCaracal @Wsteria one of the details I've sketched out for the Wolfiverse (my more whimsical name for the Leslie McCormack setting) has something just shy of halfway to unintentionally growing into this. Multi-state organizations set up to oversee some regional projects that got more responsibilities piled on over time. After all if you have a group of states that want to come to an agreement on something and they already have an existing organization why not use it?
when I first ran D&D, my grandmother, who had bought fully into the IT'S SATANISM hype, insisted on sitting and watching the first session
about an hour in, she threw her hands up and yelled 'THIS IS JUST MATH' and stormed off
Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.
Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
People complain about Millennials being weird, but you know that demonstration where Thomas Edison electrocuted an elephant? People DEFINITELY went on a date to that.

Having tossed a question to the hive mind I now sleep. Good night, may your dreams be free of mind breaking creatures of unfathomable dimensions. Unless, you know, you're into that. In which case embrace to unfathomable.
Tossing another query out to the hive mind: Five or ten years ago I ran across a tower defense flash game where the conceit was rescuing colonists on distant planets from an all devouring alien (nanite?) swarm that started flooding across worlds. Your rescue fleet arrived at a planet (level) and set up the towers to hold back the flood while colonists raced to your ship. When you got then all aboard or ran out of time you jumped to the next world.
Anyone remember this? Does it still exist?

@aldersprig I might split Doofuses and Setting Book (I've got a setting that I've generally called Island Police that I've intended to write up for nearly two decades now; and Hob might like the not-zombies Catgirl Apocalypse one that I first thought up as setting for the AFMBE rpg)
