Miniaturising your setting

Tiny Ant-Man billboards. Love it.

Miniaturising characters, expanding them to giant size, or presenting them with a Lilliputian or Brobdingnagian version of the world, is one of those classic high Weird Level ideas. It needs magic and/or a whole lot of technobabble to get away with this one.

There seems to be quite a lot of it about right now...

This year we’ll see a live-action version of DC’s Atom as well as Marvel’s Ant-Man, taking advantage of how well modern effects can cope with this. Phil Masters has recently published a FATE-based wainscot fantasy RPG called The Small Folk about Borrowers-style stories of tiny people in our big world.

Ever shrunk (or embiggened) your characters?
