The Oceanians care far less for their industry than they do for games and distractions.

Many of their industrial sites are abandon and decaying.

Thanks! I'm working on a sort of muse world.
I'd like to hear your thoughts on some of the other realms.

That's interesting, I read what you have written on your profile. Is it meant to be a cohesive effort? I'm sort of down the rabbit hole with world-building myself.

Yeah, I don't know. I was just thinking it would be cool to make a world that was kinda open like a RPG without the rules.

I kinda wish there was a scene for these worlds without a story.
I think a lot of people have them in their heads.
My daughter has an elaborate one in the D&D setting.

I've noticed when you get sucked into the rabbit hole it's always good to simplify and focus on the most interesting details. You don't have to know how many blades of grass are in every field. If you know what I mean.

What's your world about?

That's a really good point, but it can be hard to stop. Interesting bits lead to more interesting bits. I like the basic foundation, personal progression is so much more fascinating than overarching plot.
Just reading through your descriptions of the different lands I thought of distinct characters for each of them. How developed is this world?


Mine is sort of a dark comedy about natural progression, what it means to be humans and animals. It's not really interactive, and pretty character driven, but the world and the connections are limitless.

Yeah, that's true. Sometimes I like little scenes of of human reaction and interaction more than my epic story ideas. I've written two epics that take place in this world but I don't think there that good. I guess I like describing
the way a place looks and what the people are like rather than specific events that happened. I've got a few characters here and there and some important places but most of the world is pretty open.

I'd love to collaborate if you get inspired, but if your like me you probably wanna work on your own stuff.
I guess it would still be your own stuff I would give credit and links everywhere. I don't want to steal any ideas. I just love the idea of one persons creativity inside someone else's. Especially if you've got some character ideas!

I can fully appreciate that, I can write for days about a culture and then skimp on the epic battle scene. Part of the problem with utilizing the real world is people think they already know it. There's a lot to be said for setting up your own rules.

I am like you, and I wouldn't want to hijack anyone's project. It would be awesome to create some characters, but for now, I really want to learn more about where you're taking it. I'm always up for brain-storming and idea parties.

Cool, I still need to flesh out the world a little more.
It's was just a trip that i was working Oceania right when I heard about you pirate character. It was like our imaginations intersected for a minute there.
