Hey, Dreamwidth folks... I've syndicated
Universe Factory, the blog of the Worldbuilding Stack Exchange community, here on DW. We started the blog late in 2015; you can see a complete list of posts
, including some from me.
Some specific links:
- Fight Earnestly
and Hit Them in the Gaps
, two articles from a HEMA (Historic European Martial Arts) student.
- Articles on generating rivers
, using cellular automata to generate terrain
(yes, like in Game of Life), and using distortion fields to generate continents
. I believe the author of this series is our first contributor who found us via Medium
instead of via Stack Exchange
- An article on calculating political power
- Building a Truly Alien Alien
- When Am I? Navigation for Time Travelers
That's all in the last two months. Among older articles, you might enjoy:
- Building the World of Pangaea
, an interview I did with Michael Burstein (mabfan
) about the worldbuilding behind a shared-world anthology he was part of (edited by Michael Jan Friedman). That reminds me: wasn't book 2 supposed to be out around now?
- Nature's Oven
, a short story.
- Worldbuilding As You Go: A Case Study
, which is about how I approached writing The Sisters' War
, summary of the story so far
- What if the world was (completely) round?
- My Revelation for RPGs
series (link is to the index).Originally posted at http://cellio.dreamwidth.org/1996317.html. comments there. Reply there (preferred) or here.
