world building showcase, part i

Apologies for taking so long!

My original plan was to have this out on Saturday, after a full week since the start of August. That was moved to Sunday, and only then did I figure out the full extent of the sheer, vast quantities that people have been working on this project! I’ll have to start earlier next week. đŸ˜€


Eliza Wyatt has been spending the last week detailing the basics of her fantasy city Vastii, which is on a cold, inhospitable, lightless world.


Saint Know-All has been working on her dragon species, the Taal.


Kaya Alder began by introducing the Faercourt.


RG Sanders wrote about some of his ideas for his world Arbiture.


Nils has been posting on his world, ArnĂ¢ron. The sheer volume of his work speaks to how much he’d put into this so far…


Nymeria wrote an article about epic versus simplistic worldbuilding.


Cirellio has been working on Lura (an old project– going further back in his archives will get several more months of world-building posts).


AC Gaughen has been posting about Shalia.


Natania Barron has been working on her story’s setting, the Aldersgate Cycle, focusing on religion.


Alex Moore wrote about the setting and creation of magic.


Ken Kiser wrote about his creation myth, the making of Kreggoria.


Aeronwy has started with a world called Tria.


Agarithia has neatly collected each of her current posts (of which she has five) into one page (here). The topics thus far are: Brief Intro, The Jaden Kingdom, The Yellow Nation, Map of Agarithia, and The Southern Green Noses.


Writer has written two world-building posts thus far, set in historical Paris.


Otempora has started her own list of world-building projects.


SMD posted about what he’d like to do for the month, and posted a map.


Goldirocks began with some research links, and a continent.


JanVanHove is working on a sci fi setting.


Selonus is working on a fantasy world, and has gone over his map, races, and feel that he wants to achieve.


M.C. Williams hasn’t written anything specific to World Building Month (yet), but has several articles on world building, with a focus on steampunk fantasy.


And that’s it, for this week!

Having gone over everyone’s projects, I want to say that I’m really, really impressed by the things that people have come up with! I’m looking forward to the rest of the month!

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of great posts everyone. Now I feel lazy, because I intended to work more on this during the last week, but I guess moving apartments does this to you đŸ˜‰
    Guess I’ll be playing catch-up this week now that things have settled somewhat.

    There are some great ideas in many of those posts though – great job, everyone!

  2. I win! Wait, what do you mean “this wasn’t a contest”?! đŸ˜‰

    Seriously, there are two reasons why I posted so much. One, I wanted to work on this setting for a while. And two, I still do not know if I will have time to work on world building at all for two weeks at the end of this week…

  3. Staggering, really. I’ve enjoyed the romp through everyone’s worlds, though some days I’ve actually had the time to leisurely wander. I don’t always comment, but I definitely spend time reading over everyone’s thoughts and worlds and creations.

    What blows me away is the sheer amount of creative synergy. No where do I find repetition or overlap or the stealing of someone’s idea. Instead, incredible ideas spring up, Venus-like, from the sea as it were — and I find myself simply in awe. Kudos to all of you, and thank you, Eliza, for “hosting” this exploration.
