How To Build Your Own World: Miscellaneous!

All right, you have your world put together. Economy, magic/technology, races, species, physics, societies...the works. Why not add the seasonings to it now? Maybe some ketchup even? It can be the little things that really complete a subcreation, so why not consider them? Seemingly little things can actually have a big impact! For example, take stealing. What is stealing? Well, you would likely say taking something that doesn't belong to you. True, true, common sense, right? But can you see where this is going? If you have a society or a tribe where nobody owns anything, then can the crime of stealing even exist? If you have a society, how would the whole concept of items and people work? Someone is using a hammer, puts it down, comes back a few minutes later...it's gone. Now what? Can such a society exist by our standards? It cannot possibly be anything like ours. Suppose you have a more normal society, but no police. How would that work? Local militias of volunteers? Can it be

How to Create Your Own World:

How to Create Your Own World: Technology and Civilization. Nooooo, this isn't an obsession with the word "technology" like you see on television... ;) Why are you reading this right now? HOW are you reading this right now? Because of the Internet, of course, you are thinking...but how did it come about? Did you know that it goes as far back as 1957, in response to the Soviet Union's launch of Sputnik? Over half a century ago, yet even as APRANET- as it was known for decades- it was the same Internet we know today in the basic sense: a decentralized network of interconnected computers- complete with an amazing three or four (count `em!)

Perspective Tutorial: Intro.

Hello, and welcome to my Perspective Tutorial! First, feel free to download anything about it, both images and text. It's free, and available for any and all. The reason for it is quite simple: unlike style, use of colors, subject matter, or any number of artistic features that are subjective- that is, a matter of taste (some love manga, others hate it)- the hints and lessons on perspective here are mostly objective. For example, in the part on how to draw a proper cube, the steps shown will work every time, and give a good cube. It's not a matter of taste, it simply is one way of doing it, and it does work...the way 2+2 does=4. But as for

Tales from the Bizarre Dimension 6

*************Chapter 49*************** Acgeenja sat by the lake on a large flat, mossy rock. Having tea. With a big armored three-eyed snake with a halo of ghostly silver fire around her silver-white head ruffles and a forked tail. And a smaller creature resembling a turtle-dragon with an armored back glittering with emerald, amethyst, white, and azure pinpoints of light. And a hulking grey-skinned Zombie with white hair and glowing yellow eyes. And a cloaked Vampiric creature resembling a sort of aardvark with tentacled fingers and four small orange glowing eyes in a line down his forehead. And what seemed to be a stone Gargoyle but w

Tales from the Bizarre Dimension 1 II

************Chapter 1******************* She still remembered how it was, at first. It had been in a post-war city in the "normal" dimension. All she had had was gone. All friends, loved ones, even the dog...dead. Where once there had been forests, now toxic wreckage. The air stung. She had curled up, in an alley...and had never awakened. In that world. Then she was in a meadow at night. The air was curiously cool and pleasant, and the gibbous moon gave off a silvery- true silvery!- light that felt amazingly good. The stars were strange, though, like nothing she remembered. She stood up. And saw. It was the first of many things that
