  • Hey,

    We haven't really spoken before, but I know you have a cool setting and all.

    Any tips to get started on fan-lore worldbuilding? 

    Was gonna start one of my own, thought to look around for tips.

    Thanks

    • Well, that really depends on what exactly you're wanting go do with your fanmade setting.

    • Mechanically, to act as a base for any sorta plot bunnies/characters/own little magical realm base off of. Could even apply it toward mechanics for a ttrpg if crunched the numbers, but I'm fine with a 'head-canon' setting to lore-build. 

      Do you mean this, or in context of lore?

    • Kind of both. The big thing with world building is what your goal is. Are you building for a single story line? If you are, the world building needs to be focused on that storyline and providing you with tools for the story.

      If you're building for others to use, like I did for the Reptile Kingdom, you need to address prettu much everything, while also being vague enough for the people using it to have room to work.

    • I see it more as the latter, though honestly it could be either with incorporating it into lorebuilding, admittedly its premise itself might not be particularly appealing to most. Which is fine, I don't expect it to.

      It also isn't grotesque or anti-mamono or something. It is an 'equalization' premise though, and stems around a faction formerly splintered off from the Order. After discovering the Big Lie, instead of shacking up with the DL, they instead formulated a gestalt to ascend and become a godly entity to advocate for the hoomans at the pantheonic level. In turn, it has opted to uplift mankind through a 'genetic ascendency' to equalize humans with their mamono counterparts. A sort of kicking off the limiter at gestation and giving a super pre-template off the bat. Without the use of magic or dependency on material compensation. Large men and women of gereat strength and durability(with all the advantages and disadvantages along with it), the next step.

      This in effect not only allows them to healthily compete with mamono, it in turn allows humans and mamono to better connect, bond, and form fraternity THROUGH competition. Suddenly, mamono cannot just immediately rape a man, they have to work for it, either through alternative means(drugs) or... you know... asking. Humans, no longer requiring to rely on a totalitarian regime, can fend for themselves just fine and realize that mamono are not that murderous after all. 

      There is conflicts though, humanity is steadily evolving to these 'Homo Superior' but that doesn't mean issues of stratification, human on human war, and extremists who might not like humanity evolving away from their control.

      In this realm of Avalon is the starting point of it, keeping out the main realm for now as to not get the gods to start throwing fire and stuff. 

      The evolution of humanity will also take many variants to reflect their mamono counterparts, being a spectrum of 'power level' from the Succubus all they way to Lilim tier, I've also thought of adding 'Avalonian' mamono but one step at a time.




      The short of it is, I explore making humans swole to wrestle mamono and in turn make an egalitarian world through WWE. With all the ideas of transhumanism vs. post-humanism, and issues pof superhuman infrastructure along with it.

      I make no promise that this setting appeals to anyone but me, but nevertheless it is a fun idea to think on. Sort of like a Hegelian State of Nature course correction for humanity and how mamono and these superhumans would adapt to each other.

  • Whoops haha, I came to ask something since I am having trouble with the legs, lets say she has complete leg bones do they still get covered in stone or only partly?

    Draft 2 showed pure bone, but looking at how things are going the stoney parts are  getting outshined by the bony parts.

  • Out of curiosity, I brought up a fan-made region in discord and I was told to "give it a try", despite my jumping the gun at the time, I am curious if you would like to have a sort-of cooperation for it, where there is a not-americas to the north of the reptile kingdom.

    • Well, with the Reptile Kingdoms geography that doesn't really work. The Reptile Kingdom is a spirit realm the size of the Eurasian super continent with a big ass inland sea. It has a physical border but it's land locked and the size of Connecticut. Basically the kingdom is tiny and land locked but bigger on the inside.

    • That is real disappointing to hear as it has been a very long time since I read the fan entry of the reptile kingdom as I thought of an excuse to have native american themed humans inhabiting said area and maybe have some non-jungle regions but since you have it way more developed and I will accept to step away and sadden to the results.

    • This is something that you should consider doing independently from other fan works.

    • I thought about it too but I only realized that it wouldn't go far due to a lack of "substance" yet I will give it a try and I only asked to see if it was plausable yet realized that it might take a bit more than just pitching an idea, this was something I haven't realized til later.

      however again I thank you for the suggestion

    • Please explain what I am making an excuse for. As I see it, I have only explained my position and demanded that the two of you keep this debate where it belongs, and have not attempted to shift blame or justify anything.

    • As I thought. You cannot defend your statement and your arguments are little more than ad hominem attacks because if someone being "too mean."

      I say something about this being a learning experience, but people don't learn shit when they get emotional and self righteous. I hope you fair better in your future endeavors and have at least learned to leave me be when a conflict is unnecessary.

  • Very well then Rep,

    You name the Mamono and the locale (and provide the appropriate lore, twelve scones, and a bowler hat of course) and I shall deliver a tantilizing short narrative using my character and his eclectic traveling companions.

    Cheers,

    The Weary TimeLord.

    • Greetings Reptile,

      Thank you for getting back to me. Since you approve then I will get started on the new chapter after dinner.

      Cheers,

    • Greetings Reptile,

      I just wanted to give you a bit of an update as to my progress. The chapter is about two thirds done. (Though I may split it into a seperate chapter from the original since it's over 10,000 words already.)

      I've said it before but I am an introspective writer so I tend to meander on characterization. And Covid-19 has actually made writing harder since I have to deal with relatives more often. 

      Hope things are going well for you.

      Cheers,

      The Weary TimeLord.
