What kind of music are you into making? Is it for your world or some genre of the primary world?
I'm not sure, I jsut wanna make theoretical cartoon theme songs and what not or just classical music.
Either way, sounds interesting! Good luck with it!

Next question: Hotels or traveller lodges in your conworld? -The people of the Ark-Empire are very welcoming and actually it is custom to help travellers and merchants during their trips across the Provinces.

Whew, I'm officially done for the semester! I'll be flying home tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully I'll be able to be more active on here over the next few weeks.
Yay!

Hope all went well this semester!

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Of course, today we got some fairly heavy snowfall, then. However, it did start melting immediately afterwards, so now everything is pitch black, soaking wet and covered in slush. #visithelsinki Sounds lovely. Fingers crossed for Christmas when I'm coming over. Before that I'm going to spend one an...

Re: Calendars (for Earth and for conworlds)

In terms of use on Earth, I think it's clear to all of us what the most sensible calendar to use would be. The year is divided into 10 calendrical months of 29 days, 5 sidereal months, 1 tropical month, 2 paschal months, and potentially two intercalendrical months. The year begins on the 5th April,...

Re: Calendars (for Earth and for conworlds)

I have a problem with how calendar and astrology/astronomy should work on Nakar. For the most part, the orbit of Nakar and its moon is stable and predictable (I still haven't decided on actual numbers but I think the year will be a bit shorter than on Earth, but the day length will be a bit longer....

Re: Calendars (for Earth and for conworlds)

That said, I think trying to reform the Gregorian calendar is a fool's errand, far more than changing pretty much any other method of measurement. And are we not a band of merry fools? Anyroad, the civil calendar in use throughout much of the Eastlands is one of a year divided into 12 months each h...

Re: Calendars (for Earth and for conworlds)

So, every so often I get to thinking about calendars, either for the Earth or for Yantas, and I was wondering how everybody else divides the year on their conworld(s) or would divide the year up on Earth given the chance to implement a new calendar. Ah, the Auspicious 星天空 Reformation of the Duodeci...

I don't know if Lambuzhao or Lao Kou or some of the other, er, more seasoned geopoets have been working on one world the whole time or not. I think Sally Caves is probably the only other person I know who's been working within a single world for a span of decades. Depending on how exactly you count...
