Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

Yes, I wouldn’t go deep into how the FTL drive works, unless it's critical to the setting or plot -- e.g., a culture based around wormholes which have to be dragged into place at sublight speeds. To sum up the whole thing so that we don't derail this thread, FTL is not exactly relevant, and where i...

Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

If your FTL involves actually going faster than light, then yes, it involves time travel. If your FTL involves bending space, with no actual movement, like an Alcubierre drive, which involves causing your spaceship to move by bending the space in front of you while expanding the space behind you, t...

I'll be straightforward : Unless the Universe hates us all and FTL travel does really imply time travel, no, they don't.

Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

Note on Names Before my first installment, I want to give a small precision regarding the many names that will appear. There will be four types of names : 1. Omniscient names 2. Translated names 3. Exonyms 4. Endonyms The third and fourth categories are obvious; they refer to actual names used with...

Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

What is the tech level and hardness of the setting, excluding the magic bits? Actually, you need to include the magic bits to actually understand the tech level. As the history spans over 50 millenia, one should not expect things to be static during its history. However, the Ancients have crossed o...

Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

I'm particularly intrigued by the novel (as far as I know) concept of "social-sci-fi". Well, it's not exactly new; Star Trek's economy without scarcity does some little exploration of how humans could become if scarcity was cut off the equation. However, as an inspiration, I must say that Mark Rose...

Re: Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

Subscribing. I would like to know if it’s more of an SF world or a fantasy world. You don’t mention it in the OP. I had written it in the first version of my post, but the whole thing got deleted and I had to rewrite it. And then, as you can see, it did not appear. I'll add a mention in my initial ...

The Adopted Pseudo-Neutral Point of View

The first subject to be discussed is the Point of View adopted in this whole treatment; it has to be explained and, I hope, well justified externally. The Adopted Point of View I will not be using an omniscient point of view; instead, I will be using an point of view internal to the conworld. There ...

Taasao - Yiuel's Conworld

So, there you go. I have decided to describe my conworld, Taasao. My conworld Taasao places itself in a category not unlike that of Star Wars, combining elements of fantasy and sci-fi. However, while Star Wars is more about fantasy than sci-fi, Taasao is more about sci-fi than fantasy. There is some...

Re: Eurovision's shitty English-only song contest 2015 parta

Isn't there a huge festival in Sweden to select their Eurovision candidate each year? It's basically a mini-Eurovision, but with a million semi-finals, so it appears to go on for like 1/3 of the year.. (Ok, apparantly there are only 5 semi-finals. I had to look it up...) Still, it may explain the u...

Re: Yabushio: maps, flags

For aesthetic reasons, I don't really want any numbers to be over two characters in length (or three, including the mon sign). Cutting off two zeroes gives the largest numbers possible while staying within two characters: 拾文 10 mon 伍拾文 50 mon 佰文 100 mon 伍佰文 500 mon 阡文 1,000 mon 伍阡文 5,000 mon 壹萬文 10...

Re: Yabushio: maps, flags

Probably, the best thing to do is merge the Kakushu line with the Airport Express line, extending it to Manda (skipping Takenoshita and Usuda), and making a parallel line that hits all the local stops. I can't make it too complex, tbough, because I don't think the population's big enough to support...

Though communicating with them might be a problem. "I doubt there's a language that's yet to be untranslatable here. You may not understand how I can talk to you in your language, but neither do I.

Re: Yabushio: maps, flags

A comment on your transit system : it will be prone to congestion, if population densities are high in the central region, as all lines lead to a single point, which is the only transfer between your major lines. Otherwise, that maps-for-free thing is awesome; now I can finally have fun and create ...

*change of character* From the outside of the inn, one could here a pair of voices. If anything, the voices seemed angry at each other. - Look at your feet, all four.

I don't really understand what a religion does for Men or why they have them. There is a Daine here, Redbritches is his name, who knows a lot about such things.

Re: Eurovision's shitty English-only song contest 2015 parta

I care not who goes to EU-vision or not. I'm not a big fan of boundaries when it comes to discovering new things.

(I'm still on my hangover after reading Africa's history, and I did it like in July last year. My brain went nuts.)
