Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

even i do justify it...i end up having folks still complain about it so i cave in and omit it out of my designs and setting.

Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I’m trying to create a clockpunk world, but I need to figure out some things. Since clockpunk is usually based on Renaissance Italy (my world is as well), it would make sense to have a religion that resembles Christianity, Catholicism in particular. I want to do something a little different like ha...

Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

In that case I would expect all insects to have similar chests, with little connection to gender. small breasted Why would insects have any mammary glands at all...? Maybe they have “breasts” the same way gamefowl and songbirds have “breasts”? Maybe their wing-muscles make their chests puff out som...

[…] Yours have a bipedal stance, an insecto-humanoid body plan, they wear clothing, the clothing is tailored and patterned […] Not only that, but they wear the clothing in the same places a human would, And yes, you said it perfectly! The clothing did actually bother me when I wrote earlier, but co...

Tue 30 Apr 2019, 19:22 I wanna ask...Is there a way to not alienate people with some of my settings?

Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

this kinda spoiler heavy but I might as well: the humans in my setting...aren't really human. they're the result of integrating dragon dna to make them more resilient to their respective environments. as a side effect, some of my humans depending on caste might have scales or other quirks that justi...

Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

This exchange is feeling very testy, and it's over an answer that hasn't been given yet. Let's pause and give fruityloops some time to clarify if that's something they want to do. might as well use the magic excuse...and you folks wonder why i don't chat here anymore....

Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

in my dragon rider conworld, some of my humans kinda have colorful hair albeit it's kinda dull and not eye searing bright. the closest explanation is selective genetic breeding to tell the caste apart from each other.

Re: (EE) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

how do you justify some humans having....brightly colored hair? like for some reason i just find them more interesting then what humans usually have.

Re: what should my bug people eat

I don't think must species of spiders eat ants. maybe ant mimics? idk. been while since i read up on insects. also, there are non sapient bugs now to avoid the whole issue

what should my bug people eat

i have this bug setting of sorts where small sapient bugs exist alongside humans. though humans don't seem to know they're sapient. one of the main concerns is the fact that i don't know what these bug people should eat. and considering someone took issue of sapient animals eating each other, i'm sc...

Re: underused settings in world building

The obvious answer, as it pertains to fantasy novels, is probably "for urban fantasy, anything not set in either the US or England" and "for non-urban fantasy, anything not set in faux-medieval Europe". Those two types of settings are so overrepresented in fantasy novels that literally anything els...

Re: How NOT to Conworld.

personally don't hate the dnd-esque races all that much. but i never used them in my conworlds as i find it more fun to make up my own or take inspiration from more obscure myths. all that matters is the execution and you're golden. or just have humans who were the result of a caste system crafted b...

Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

alot of my conworlds aren't really all that realistic but i might keep this in mind for some interspecies breeding.

since in my urban fantasy setting, demons aren't really a species in the traditional sense explaining why half demons can still reproduce young.

Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I'm doing some world building and i wanted to avoid the unfortunate implications of calling other completely different sapient beings as "races", opting to use "species" instead. my only real problem is how can i explain how hybrids happen between different species?
