GN Drive PhysicsThe following was taken from another forum and was not done by me. Details below.More Like This
Here is a smorgasbord of stuff that I've been thinking about regarding everything GN-related. The following is a set of ideas derived from high energy particle physics, and later on, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. Would love to show the equations for any of this, but hell, even the professional theoretical physicists aren't sure they have their math right. Anyway, this will be a thread about my musings, derived from my time as a physics minor in undergrad. The mishmash of theoretical physics have a mathematical precedence, but I won't bore you with the math. It's messy.
And to begin this big long schpiel, we'll have to start with the heart of the matter - wtf is a GN drive?
GN Drive Mechanics
The true GN drives run off of "non-evaporative decay of baryonic matter," which in layman's terms means that CB has harnessed a much more exotic means of power generation than we can i
Writing Tips - Creating Civilizations (Part I)Or alternatively, I explain my fantasy generator game from awhile back. Today we’re going to talk about how you can create a civilization/society for your fantasy or science fiction world. There will be another part to this though, and in that one I’ll be telling you how to create a society/civilization integral to the theme of your novel. Think of the first parts as creating something like The Shire, and the final ones about creating something like Oceania from 1984.More Like This
The main difference is that from there, we start with the “end” - we figure out what we want for the story, and we build things that come from a specific conclusion. In 1984 the civilization is there to prove that totalitarianism is bad. In this one, we start from the beginning. We figure out a society’s assets and we build it to a logical conclusion. It helps make societies more… realistic.
Although, it might be wise for you to pick a certain conclusion, even when
