World Creation Superdraft 5: May 2021


Recommended Posts

Oh gawds, it's the World Creation SuperDraft 5!


 

image.jpeg.da77095bdbb0aef7a619719f7b3c9f44.jpeg


 

You are a god.


 


 

We are building a new fantasy mythology from scratch. Working  with all of the other gods, you are going to create a new world.  


 

The setting is completely blank. You will need to contribute your divine ideas to build the lands and populate them with a variety of life.


 

Here's what you'll need in your divine portfolio.

  • Domains of Influence. These are special realms of control and responsibility for which you are known and prayed to.  You will have one primary domain and three secondary domains. Secondary domains can be a new area of influence or can recreate any of the other divine contributions (including Interference).

  • Geography. You are the patron and builder of certain locales. It can be as broad as a continent  or an ocean, or it can be as specific as a city.

  • Sentient Life. Humans are not here by default. You can build entire races from scratch or offshoots of another race already created. (Example, God A creates centaurs. God B likes centaurs, too, so he builds an offshoot race, dark centaurs.)

  • Gift to Civilization. Whomever the races may be, they are extremely primitive. As gods, you must guide them. Contribute skills or knowledge to the population. You can specify a particular people for your gift, which will make them the best at it, but it will spread to others.

  • Flora or Fauna. Create one of the following, either a special plant or crop for the world OR a special animal or livestock for the world. You dictate use, danger, locality, power, etc. These can be real world things (roses, corn, horses, etc.) or mythic (walking trees, Audrey II, Godzilla, etc.)

  • Interference.  Bestow a Blessing or curse to an existing place or people. The gods were often family, working together. They were also competitive, and sometimes downright petty. This is your chance to enact your will upon a fellow gods' creation.

  • Mythic Monster or Guardian. You have singular representation in  the world, a special, magical creature, benevolent or deadly. This creature is unique, named, and intelligent.

Round one will be your Primary Domain, but the rest can be selected in any order.

You may not pick the same primary domain as you did last year IF you took part last year.

As with the previous years there is no link between this World and previous ones. So continues Log's grand experiment. 


 

We will begin Monday May 3rd, Five in the afternoon British Time which is Noon Eastern in the States. We take the weekends off.


 

As before I've just copied the front page of last year and thanks to Log for all the hard work

The butterflies were interesting . . . for a while. But their flight patterns soon became less capricious and more predictable. Laughter being largely a product of the unexpected, and godly perception

The boy ran from his camp. He knew better, but there was a butterfly he hadn't seen before, and there wasn't much for him to do on Trading Day, so he slipped out and after it. They say that whatever a

A new universe, full of potential!   How did such a wondrous thing spawn a goddess of Fear? Or attract one? Where did Fear goddesses come from anyway?   How silly.   Boar

33 minutes ago, Cancer said:

Three distinguishable d6's will give you a three-digit number in base 6, which has 216 different outcomes.  If you were the god?  archfiend?  whatever of mathematics, it would be no problem for you.

 

 

Oh, definitely archfiend.

I was perusing 'unusual god domains' looking for inspiration, and came across this one:

 

Quote

Popular myths claim she was a lustful pagan goddess who threw herself at men by showing them her "lady parts." Most men rejected the old hag. When one occasionally accepted, however, Sheela transformed into a beautiful woman and granted kingship to the lucky man.

Sheela Na Gigs is also known as a fertility goddess and her figurines have been used at weddings and births. One theory attributes her to the pagan practice of anasyrma, in which women lifted up their skirts to scare off evil spirits. This suggests that Sheela was a protector against evil.

 

That is just ... awesome. If I saw a fantasy novel where women flashed their lady-parts to fend off vampires, I'd assume it was a silly invention on the authors part that could have had no root in historical myths.

 

also, a relevant SNL sketch:

[QUOTE]Hermit CANNOT pick Trickery. 

Invention or War or Magic![/QUOTE]

 

For those interested in grabbing these this time.

Trickery was fun. While I did think a certain god of evil was too mean to him, Fox was a lovable trickster (I Hope) who seemed to entertain people and certainly forced me to get creative.  It can be tricky to find the balance between rattling the cage and breaking it.  I'd rate my enjoyment making him as a 9 out of 10

 

Invention was okay. Not as fun as the others, but I still like the idea of victorian dwarves hunting dinosaurs in the under dark so.. much is forgiven ;) I'm sure others could do better. I'd rate a solid 6 out of 10 for my personal enjoyment

 

War actually had the most serious storyline, and I really felt like Aerobell (Sp) had the best mythmaking with a possible exception of Fox. 8 out of 10 for enjoyment of developing her.

 

Magic was good, but was largely tongue in cheek, and Augustus was kind of a jerk and definitely a cranky sourpus. Obviously another god of magic could be quite different.  Still fun for me.  Solid 7, maybe 7.5.

 

As for what I'll go for this time? Knowing this group I'm gonnna need at least two concepts to reduce sniping chances.

Should be fun *G*
