The Other Side of the World

65 posts in this topic

While it is true that the alleyplanet doesn't act much like a planet, I do feel like there should be something on the other side of the world. I had an idea about islands brought to life by the alleystorm, but I'd like to hear the ideas of other people. So, what do you think is on the Other Side of the World?

I like that. I feel like it is unexplored, so we wouldn't know. And I could make it so the Explorers guild would go explore that. Sounds fun!

Islands, maybe a small continent, like Australia or Antarctica size.

If there's land, there's life. Maybe it's inhabited by animals and/or other sentient creatures. Maybe people, maybe not.

Parshendi, Amians, and Koloss tribes. I think that is what intelligent(ish) life should be there, as we have a primarily human culture on the main continent.

Might I suggest a land mass made of solid gold? It would be populated with augurs who spend their time getting high on the metal, looking at their hallucinations to try to gauge how many extra pounds they've gained recently. We could call it the 'count-yer-weight continent'.

Obviously, that wasn't a serious suggestion. If we want this to be a realistic planet, the other side should mostly be made up of the backside of four elephants.

I'm not sure if that's large enough for four elefants.... I think it would most likely get smashed...

A really, really BIG ardvark.

Hey, don't underestimate them ardvarks. They looked like unrelevant little mammals, but they really the devil.

Never met one :)

So a huge ardvark with some elefants on top. Can ardvarks swim? Otherwise that could be interesting...

The aardvark is on top of a turtle and then it's turtles all the way down. Obviously.

Sounds like a good basis for a continent ;)

I like the idea of having the other side of the world have more non-human races. Maybe have two supercontinents seperated by ocean.

In addition, I came up with a sea at the North pole (called, rather uncreatively, the North Sea). It's full of Alleycanes and islands that are alive. I'll write up the rest later.

We should have giant squid-whales.

There's a lot of area. We can have a lot of things.

Here's one of my suggestions.

Spoiler

 

The Floating Islands of the North Sea

Far in the north – in fact, as far north as there is –- lies a sea, aptly named the North Sea. Contained within that sea are majestic floating islands, mutated by the alleycanes that pass over the area. They feed on stormlight to grow to enormous sizes, and fill both the air and sea.

 

Anatomy

Each island is supported by a layer of rock on the bottom. On top of that rests dirt, which supports the many plants that grow on the surface. In the center of the island is the island’s gemheart, which holds the spren that lets it float. The gemheart is fiercely guarded, as its destruction would almost certainly result in the death of the island.

 

Flora and Fauna

The mix of plants and animals on each island is specific and unique. They live in connection with each other and the island. The sapience of the island depends, in a large part, on these organisms. It, in turn, can influence or control them, depending on their level of sapience.

 

Life cycle

The creation of a new island begins when one island shares some of the organisms that live on it with another island, providing a connection between them. Using this connection, they form a new gemheart and place it in a new form. Once this is done, they will find a spren of the right type to bond the gemheart. After this, the island is released from its parents to rise into the air. Eventually, the island will become too big to float any longer and will sink from the air into the water.

Floating islands would be awesome.

One of the things that I think would be cool would be the existence of otherworldly entities/ things that are completely different. 

The alleycity area has a lot of humans. The alleys have a lot of eldritch horrors. Other areas could have a lot of cognitive entities, or something completely new, like floating islands.

I would be supportive if we tried to make things that weren’t Brandon related at all, that are completely different. Like, what if there was a place in the planet where we ( the players) existed, like a mount Olympus for the alleyplanet, where the gods that control them reside. 

I think we should try to make the other side of the world as different/weird  as possible.

What if the creatures are so incomprehensible by humans that any attempt to look at them is a huge cognitohazard, effectively crash if your brain if you even try to understand it.

Or is that already what the Alleys are? :P

That would be where the 17th shard touches the alleyverse. One of my characters is going to go there, but he doesn't know that yet.

I imagined some of the islands would have sentient species, but not necessarily human. Koloss or kandra would be really interesting, what with having spikes and all.

Or, the Koloss and Kandra don't have spikes. The Alleycane mutated them. But I agree with Mac, we need one area that players reside. I have an idea I want to add later, and that would work perfectly!

What about tribes of those DAbominations Voidus made as real species in the 16 Year Peace?

Cool idea! If they were to breed they could maybe change their abilities over the course of generations and develop their own culture.
