  1. Hello hello! So I'm relatively new to worlbuilding and learning how to find ideas among the everyday. I just wanted to ask, how do you guys narrow down your ideas to successfully worldbuild? I've been doing brainstorming sessions, but I end up with so many ideas and possibilities that I feel more overwhelmed than I did before I started. I don't know how to pick which way to go; there are so many things to make decisions on, I just feel I'm going to make a mess of things down the line
  2. Hey all! Some of you know me from the discord server the 'writers guild' and my frankly unsettling escapades there, others are unfamiliar with me and my talents. Here, I hope to take requests from people who need plants and animals and monsters and humanoids to populate their various worlds, and hopefully also have fun discussions with people who come here to talk about their creations. I'll give and ask for advice, and hopefully we all can enjoy or have with this thing. I hope it goes somewhere, but that's up to you all. I also hope that this keeps on going when I eventually have to shift my attention elsewhere, so... I hope you all enjoy it. Let's try to make this something interesting, alright? @Sherlock Holmes @AonEne @bees? @Blessing of Potency
  3. Roshar's most important feature is the highstorm which are incredibly dangerous and drop crem. Most Rosharans see crem as a nuisance although some use it as pottery, a building material or fertilizer but what if it could more with it? When highstorms drop crem it is still mixed in with the water meaning that it is effectively a liquid until it hardens. If you design a road as two long parallel bumps in the ground then the crem will move downhill depositing itself in the lower areas to the sides and in the center. The crem will most likely do this in a uniform manner meaning that their are not going to be any potholes on Rosahr and the roads could be self maintaining. Anyone else have ideas about turning Roshar's weirdness to human(or singer) advantage?
  4. I had this idea recently. See, when something comes within the aura of an Awakener, its colors get better (not sure how to phrase it). As evidenced in Prologue, this effect can be seen by anyone, not only those in the reach of the aura. It seems reasonable that sounds would be improved in similar way when passing through a powerful BioChromatic aura. So basically we had to either have Awakeners play instruments so that the sounds coming from them would be enrichened or, if Nalthis ever hits contemporary technology level, there should be a powerful Awakener sitting on every loudspeaker during concerts.
  5. This is not a topic for compiling figures of speech, this is for coming up with our own, based on any of Sanderson's books. For example, a figure of speech I have thought of for Scadrial is 'burning the midnight Bendalloy'. Do with this what you will.
  6. Note: I haven't read White Sand. If someone who's read it considers it plausible / impossible, please mention it below. Spoilers: Part for length, and part for SoS major spoilers (even though I don't have to).
  7. For a fantasy setting I'm trying to figure out how I should date my main characters diary entries. I'm using the basic 12 month thing it's just this:How do I write the years? I would also appreciate you guys doing a podcast on alternative calendars if you don't mind-Alex
  8. This is a blatant ripoff of 's Really Bad Shard Ideas. Basically, this is where you put ideas that you thought were ridiculous at first, but didn't seem so bad when you thought through them. Or just good ideas I sorta found myself overthinking my submissions and ruining the lighthearted intent, so yeah. Why aren't you posting already? Go! EDIT: Fixing posty linky thingamaboberroos EDIT 2: Maybe now it'll work?
