Recommended Posts

Oh gawds, it's the World Creation SuperDraft 8!

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 or Ore. 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.). Alternately create a substance an ore that can be used.

  • 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.

There will be bonuses for previous players IF they pick a primary domain that they have not picked before.

 

The world will be a normal one, a sphere but after that people can decide various things about it.

After the first domains are picked, then we will decide how each god is related as this year the gods are related to each other. If anyone wants to pre-arrange a link go-ahead and let me know. We will use the Greek Gods as an example.

Late entrants should PM me with a suggested link

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 July 1st, 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

I hope I can participate. DT's dictum last year that this year's world must be a spherical planet, rather than some of the wild and wacky world designs of past WCSDs, ruyles out an idea I've wanted to use for some time, but I'm sure I'll think of something.

 

This year, I think, go concrete and relatively traditional instead of abstract and obscure.

We have been doing this for eight years and I have records going back so I use this as an aide memoire. So you did.

Eight years is a mighty long time, bud. I think there were a couple of years I didn't participate. I think right about when Covid hit. My personal status had changed about then.
