From what I remember from the text of the original version, the N was capitalized because it looked cool. But I could be wrong. :)

N is for Neville who died of ennui?

Well, tho I suspect the real answer is the oft-given "it looks cool", here's my answer:

The N represents the ancient Atlantian glyph "Negdora". Combined with the rest of the octaNe logo, it forms the Atlantian sigil-phrase that means "superheated waterblood explosion", which taps into the primal memories of all modern-day humans (desecendants of the ape-slaves of the True Atlantians, who were the dolphins while they still lived on land) of the cool orgone-powered horseless chariots that the Atlantian nobles used to ride.

In other words, it triggers the Primal Hot Rod Achetype.

I personally think that the N in octaNe is capatalized as part of a message that Jared is revealing to us letter by letter. This message contains Jared's exact plan to take over the world through Narrativist RPGs.

Veering back toward Jared's original post. Why not make some sort of funky pre play brainstorming session part of the game, so the group makes the setting they want to play with? Then give an example of how you did it (with some weird ass spider diagram, that'd be cool).

Wow! That explains so much :)
