The Chatterbox / Re: Worldsmyths Age Range
« on: December 13, 2017, 10:34:31 PM »
29 here.

In my WiP there were ancient godlike beings known as the Ancestors (their actual name has been lost to time) that were trapped in alternate dimension by a group of human hybrids that rebelled against them. In the present day the descendants of the hybrids (creatively known as Descendants) are responsible for watching over the seal that was used to trap them. They also hunt Fiends, creatures that the ancestors create and force through the seal to find a way to destroy it.

I'm still trying to figure out mine. I decided to scrap my original idea because I felt like I wouldn't have been able to do it justice within a time constraint so I'm currently trying to come up with something new.

So far I only have a few basic ideas for a scifan world and a few vague character ideas, but not much beyond that.

I agree with True Neutral, and think you should keep it until the Librarium is ready.

Are you participating in NaNo this year?
I want to, but I'm not 100% sure if I will be able to. It will depend on what my work schedule looks like.

Do you know what you're writing yet?
Not yet.

If you don't know what you're writing yet, do you have any vague ideas?
I want to write something that draws influence from different eastern myths, centered around a shaman or exorcist that's being hunted by a fox spirit obsessed with obtaining immortality. Beyond that I don't have much else planned out atm.

Are you planning on starting something brand new or "rebelling" and continuing something you've already started?
This will probably be something brand new, but there's always the possibility that I get impatient and start it early.

I can't say that I have a favorite creature to research, though I did enjoy reading up on creatures from Norse mythology for a project that I ended up putting on the back burner earlier this year. I mainly focused on the Vaetir races (elves, dwarfs, jotunn etc.) and the norns, but I also looked into creatures like Ratatoskr and Nidhogg.

As for the second question I have thought about writing something loosely Xianxia inspired featuring animals and spirits based on myths from different asian countries. I haven't put too much thought into it since I'm working on something else atm, but I definitely want to include huli jing (Chinese fox spirits) and naga.

The king lived.

Honestly I really don't think I would want to live in most of the worlds I have created because they all are a lot more dangerous than the real world. Between all of the unrest, genocidal gods, and human eating monsters I highly doubt I would last very long.

Bookworm's Corner / Re: What books are on your to-read list for 2017?
« on: June 28, 2017, 10:19:17 PM »
At the moment I'm about halfway through Nevernight, and I must say that I've really enjoyed it so far.

Aside from that I don't really have much on my list to read this year. Just The Eyes of the Dragon, which I started well over 2 years ago but never finished. Will probably have to start over from the beginning since I don't remember much of it.

Oh and I did promise a friend that I would give the Shadowrun novels a try, since I've always interested in Scifan. So I might pick those up at some point as well.

I live in the Bahamas so if you need to know anything about the country itself or tropical islands in general I'm your guy. I also know quite a bit about Bahamian history, having studied it in high school, so you can ask me about stuff like the Arawak and Caribs, pirates, the slave trade etc.

I have degrees in physics and mechanical engineering so you can ask me about stuff related to those as well. My specialty is thermofluids and fluid flow which in regard to fantasy writing could be helpful for things like aqueducts and steam/dieselpunk stuff. I also know a bit about other areas of engineering so I might be able to help with those as well.

I'm nowhere near an expert but I know a thing or two about asian folklore, mainly Chinese and Japanese though I know some Indian as well. I also know a bit about old Norse mythology and ancient Semitic religions/pantheons. So I may be of use with those as well.

Baking is one of my favorite pastimes so I can always be helpful with stuff related to it. I have a fair amount of recipes at my disposal, and I can also help with fundamentals and techniques as well.

I second what Sheepy said. It's kind of annoying being sent to the forum instead of back the thread you replied to.

Voted for option 2, though option 3 would be fine as well.
