There are two sometimes-conflicting goals at play here:
Edits that invalidate good answers aren't allowed, as it's not fair to the people who wrote those answers.
People shouldn't answer questions that they know should be closed, and if they do and their answers end up getting invalidated or deleted, it's on them.
On a quick review I don't think your question qualifies under #2. The lines between asking about (world) capabilities versus asking about characters, and asking about world versus story, are a little tricky sometimes. You asked in good faith and people answered in good faith a question that's likely to be closed. The best way forward for all involved is to use what you've learned from this question to ask better followup questions. If you can't edit this one to be openable without damaging the existing answers, it's better to just let it be and ask a new question.
If you'd like to get help/feedback from the community before you ask that next question, try the sandbox -- it allows you to refine a draft in a safe place before people start answering.
