About This Club

To discuss all things story structure, worldbuilding and lore, to get feedback and opinions, etc

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Dan Harmon (Community, Rick and Morty) on story structure: https://channel101.fandom.com/wiki/Story_Structure_101:_Super_Basic_Shit It's like a very condensed version of the monomyth
  3. Here, I will be discussing any possibilites about my Theories with DAICHONS, their Social Structure and anything else that you may have wanted to know about character interaction, plots, Magick System with the Circle of Wandering, The Piggyback System for Crest Users, Phlegathon, Dark Terror...or anything else that you have always WANTED to know but were either afraid to ask either because you didn't want to INSULT me or you just thought that I might snap out on you... Feel free to ask....I'[m open to answer any questions that you might have.... even you don't know what a DAICHON actually IS in the RP world on Valucre. I hate trying to rp with people that people just have NO idea of what or who my character IS!!!! ask away!!! I don't mind!!!!! Benny
  4. Not so much a tool as a guide. Found on r/worldbuilding A map of things to consider when building a world
  5. i'm doing the worldbuilding challenge, but for Arlais Island in Genesaris ? feeling pretty good about the foundational lore that started the whole idea, but the minute details are extensive, which both excite and frighten me ? i was thinking of maybe opening some portions of the worldbuilding and loremaking of Arlais Island to the general public, either for: their own long-term jurisdiction and management, OR through "short-term worldbuilding", which is essentially creating lore and passing it on to me to manage and expand on said lore for use within Arlais ? it's worldbuilding without long-term responsibility(?) ? i don't know how exactly to go about it yet; we'll see! ?
  6. Not to be taken as a holy book from which no deviation is permitted, Poetics is still a great and quick and public domain read to get a handle on the fundamentals of conventional story structure http://classics.mit.edu/Aristotle/poetics.html
  7. Challenge accepted? https://www.valucre.com/topic/41469-persistent-alternative-settings/
  8. I'll have to start it but I have an idea though.
  9. Super nice. Where? I’d love to see it in action
  10. Menus. Starting a food company. Food industry etc

  13. Let me quote myself from before here Get specific w/ us!
  14. https://www.seventhsanctum.com - lots of generators here for worldbuilding
  15. Shared with me by Lilium https://www.designevo.com/ Use this to make logos for your fictional companies and corporations
  16. I'm still toying with the right way to word this so welcome any attempts to improve it. But: Make your lore accessible and changeable Ideas are cheap. Execution is expensive because that is where costs of time and energy tend to be most concentrated. What does this mean to me in the context of worldbuilding and lore management? For a collaborative community that engages through a forum media? To me it means that it is very easy to make something "cool". In the digital age with countless generators to use as starting points or for inspiration and unparalleled accessibility to information, from the full text of public domain and open source works, to samples or snippets of commercial products, to analyses of texts and shared knowledge on YouTube, Wikipedia, news websites, etc. Ideas as germs are in hyper-abundance. Having a cool idea is not enough to make it popular because cool ideas are actually very common. So in this context, what makes an idea valuable? How accessible it is to roleplayers and how much it can be transformed via that interaction. In terms of following paths of least resistance, I speculate that more players are more drawn to lore that they can easily change or adopt, and that they can see the realization of this change as a result of their character's actions. If there are two cities with cool lore, the one that makes it easier to influence AND which makes theses influences more public, more frequently, is the one I think will pretty much always end up being the most successful
  17. Reasons to go against “it’s what my character would do” / my guy syndrome: https://rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/37103/what-is-my-guy-syndrome-and-how-do-i-handle-it
  18. I found this just a sec ago, and may be useful (I didn't pay anything but you can pay what you want) for people who want a different format for quests, and may even help you organize various quests. I like that on the PDF I can edit the sections I want to accordingly to suit various characters and situations. https://www.dmsguild.com/product/233545/Quest-Tracker
  19. Dude. I agree. Voodoo birds sounds wicked awesome
  20. Come to think of it, after watching the show Dark Tourist on Netflix I've been very curious about writing something similar to the voodoo markets in Africa, where living animals and dead animal parts were bought and sold all to facilitate the use of voodoo spellcraft. That could be a neat thing to mash together with the bird people...
  21. Been toying around with some ideas of writing up some new background civilizations for the beast people of Genesaris (as you've probably seen my mindless chattering in the chat thread). Basically I really like the idea of "taming" monster races and crafting a civilization around them that works well. Hopefully I can accomplish that, but eh it can always just be a fun little side project. Still trying to figure out a good way of crafting up a civilization for bird people and satyrs if anyone has any suggestions or is okay with me bouncing some ideas off of them
  22. A CUDA or Open GL based program could do this pretty fast but it would need to be tested thoroughly for accuracy and the like. Parallel programming is tailor made for things like this.
  23. We could limit the tedium by restricting it to posts after a certain implementation date, and have it only check for new posts each time it runs, with an exception of checking for newly locked [CANON] threads. Otherwise I can see it starting out great, then getting more and more obnoxious with each run if it has to re-check all the posts it has already counted.
