Okay, am citit si FR fluff, si Eberron fluff, m-am uitat peste Dark Sun si altele. Sincer sa fiu, desi imi plac anumite idei din toate, nici una dintre settingurile oficiale nu-mi surade prea tare. Asa ca am decis sa fac una noua, si mi se pare doar normal ca potentialli playeri, daca o terminam vreodata, sa contribuie la asta. So, hai sa incepem prin aruncarea de niste idei de baza.
1. De dragul simplicitatii vom avea acceleratia gravitationala egala cu cea a pamantului, sa nu ne mai chiunuim cu aspectele fizice ale planetei.
2. As propune sa avem o serie de arhipeleaguri, respectiv insule detasate intre ele. In idea ca una stabilita de noi ar fi "baza" de unde pornim construirea diverselor culturi, natii si civilizatii. In plus daca avem insule izolate intre ele(relativ vorbind) putem mai usor argumenta in favoarea diversitatii formelor de viata.
3. Din cauza ideii #2 as propune sa avem planeta mai mare decat Terra, dar sa stabilim cu cat mai mare doar spre sfarsit.

Ca ghid pentru posturi recomand sa procedam astfel:
a. Nume Continent
b. Harta Geografica/Politica[daca posibil]
c. Climatul, inclusiv extremele termice
d. Fauna/Flora, eventual putem sa includem aici doar specii native care sunt speciale sau unice.
e. Specii de umanoizi/creaturi inteligente
f. Tarile existente in acel continetn
g. Scurt rezumat despre cum se inteleg intre ele speciile si/sau atitudinea lor politica


a. Kalpragos
b.




c. Temeperat Oceanic, e intotdeauna cald, iarna fiind sezon ploios.
d. Majoritatea insulelor nu au pradatori mai mari ca lupii, arareori se pot gasi Dire Wolves. In principal cele mai periculoase animale sunt cele zburatoare. Prezente si relativ comune: Giant Owls, Infernal Hawks.
e. Humans sunt specia intelienta predominanta(native), halflings exista in numere semnificative[native]. Sunt putini elfi, si aproape nici un dwarf.
f. Fiecare insula este un regat suveran, aliantele politice sunt comune, efemere si usor tradate.
g. Humans sunt o specie care au existat dintotdeaua pe insule. E si punctul de origine al rasei. In general ei sunt relativ intoleranti catre rasele care traiesc mai mult si/sau rasele care arata fundamental diferit. Cu Halflings nu au o problema, in general ei sunt considerati oameni. Elfi sunt dispretuiti si temuti din cauza unor organizatii teroriste ale acestora. Dwarfi sunt vazuti ca un fel de oameni mutanti. Desi sunt acceptati, acestia sunt doar tolerati, nu si placuti.
Exista dovezi care sugereaza multe civilizatii umane, mult mai vechi decat cele contemporane. Opinia populara a istoricilor este ca oamenii sunt une, din cele mai vechi rase, daca nu chiar prima.

2 Kalpragos: The Serrad la data de Mier Mai 11, 2011 12:32 pm

The Broken Continent is old, supposedly civilized life first found itself here. Ancient tales hint at the “Great Empire” but most of the stories are varied, containing vague recollections of such a place, in most cases it seems the realm in question refers to an afterlife more than anything else. The large body of water, called “The Broken Sea” is the subject of worship, at least in theory to the people of the Kalpragos. Religious text cite the Leviathan who created the Multiverse.

“ It was one infinite being, alone among nothingness. Before the Leviathan there was no time. As proclaimed by the prophet Yallus the Learned, before Creation, all was one, and in the moment of it’s birth, Leviathan Thought, and thus created something outside itself, it flickered for moments before it’s death. And then Leviathan understood that Nothing may come from Nothing, and thus Leviathan had ripped of himself the flesh of his body and spread it across the Nothing, and thus was the Nothing filled.”

Serrad Coalition:
Found in the southern-most parts of the shattered continent, the Serrad are the least devout of all the nations. Their priests are practitioners of “Soli Gloria”, they encourage the people to become independent of both thought and body, stating that it the inherent teachings of The Broken Leviathan urge all creatures to find their true essence. The best way to do this, they claim is by doing acts of greatness that bring glory to one’s name.
As a result the Serrad tend o be the least xenophobic of all human nations, as well as the least coherent. They are ruled by a regional council of lords, voted into their position every ten years by the populace. Inter species relationships are still frowned upon, though not expressly forbidden, indeed some priests even recognize the liaison as valid in the Leviathan’s eyes and admit half breeds into the church. Dwarfs are high in concentration here, as well as gnomes. Trolls and orcs are found, sparsely.

The history of the Serrad is murky, at best. They are believed to have arrived migrated from the Eastern Boundries of the Broken Sea. Although there are no records to prove such, scholars, historians and archaeologists hold that there is no evidence of migration and all signs point to indigenous nomads eventually setting up permanent cities, despite religious cannon.
The Serrad are arranged in six large cities, of various sizes, though in times of peace and non distress they hold over 30.000 people within. The Great cities have always been walled, though the most expansions and population booms have grown beyond their confines.

Opinion of various races by stereotype:
Dwarves: Short, bearded people of ill disposition and an oddly strong love of family, you’d never guess they weren’t squat humans.
Halflings: What? They’re actually different from us? Are you sure, because I remember seeing midgets before.
Elves: Sure, I don’t mind, but do they have to drone on and on about how better everything was 300 years ago? If you love the past that much why don’t you go back where you came from?
Orcs: Hm, I don’t like the look of him, better watch your back, just in case.
Troll: Are you crazy? Fine, don’t listen to me, but have a flask of acid ready, I’ll prepare my “I told you so” face.
Goblins: *sigh* A brisk slap to the inner ear ought to solve that problem. Until they do it again, that is.
Gnomes: Look, I can accept that Halflings aren’t human, if you say so, but Leviathan help me, how are they different from gnomes?

Referitor la elfi, I could perhaps write them up. Smile I always liked elves.

And here's a first world map I made, I've only planned anything for the Kalpragos, so the other bits are there just so it isn't a giant ocean with the one continent. Scalewise, the bar I put should give you a sense of the scale. Remember, the rest of the stuff is random non-cannon land mass unless we can't think of everything. Also, Bogdan, go for it.


Also, click to view that, it's bigger than it looks. And the scale bar works in kilometers, because kilometers are pantsing awesome.

Placeholder[More human nations + The Savage North(the large subcontinent above the Broken Sea)]

Cyber has come up with an interesting idea:
Instead of having one world, let's have two, orbiting each other. I'm pretty sure I read about something like that once, probably Discworld, but it's a cool option that we should totally explore. They could share atmospheres [I also remember KotOR 2 using this for Dxun and Onderon] and once magic had gotten to a specific level they could travel between worlds. This would give a very good reason to have bio-diverse life forms that still are able to exist in the same environment as each other.

Dxun was Onderon's satellite. we could go on that approach.

Scara nu e un pic cam mica? Sa fie tot Serrad-ul acolo? Cea mai mare insula are cam 8-9 km... si cele medii au pana in 4 km. Poate in loc de 4Km sa modifici scara la 10km...adica 10,000 de metri;)

In rest suna bine. Si ca sugestie,ati putea face o chestie pe care am citit-o demult intr-un fluff de MMO, ca pe cealalta planeta (distanta de 40-100km?) si prin locul in care planetele se intalnesc si au atmosfera comun sa traiasca o rasa de fiinte zburatoare (evil elves with wings?), care sa lanseze invazii din cand in cand ...

Eventual undeva pe planeta pe care se petrece actiunea in prima faza sa fie ramasite ale ultimei expeditii/invazii care a reusit sa treaca vasta distanta dintre cele 2 planete relativ intacta si sa reuseasca initial sa cuceresca, acum poate 500-1000 de ani si care dupa succesul initial, in lispa intaririlor (razboi civil pe planeta mama, ori razboi cu o alta rasa) au intrat incet incet in declin si acum se descurca singuri, poate chiar sa aibe legaturi comerciale cu celelalte puteri din zona....

Si evident, o expeditie/invazie de scara larga ar fi ceva foarte dificil de intreprins...

Eventual sa inceapa sa se inventeze (Cam cand se petrece actiunea ) primele corabii zburatoare a la Eberron...

Just my 2 cents
Very Happy

Heh, stiu, si mie mi s-a parut putin.
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1LmNOgOA_aA/TZwKa2fTe2I/AAAAAAAAAA4/O-2xCcUnBqY/s1600/world+maps.jpg

World map acolo. Aparent, 4000 km sunt o gramada. Si marimea insulelor e in general de 800 km patrati. Ceea cea as vrea sa precizez e destul de ok.
(am editat si postul cu insula, lol, am scris meters cand vroiam km)

To be noted:

The Technological level of the world is somewhere around 9th century Europe.
Steel has not yet been invented.
Cast Iron, is, however.
With exceptions for barbarism or extremely isolationist cultures, tech level is homogenous.
All navigation is done using the stars. Movement between continents is tricky and very dangerous, rarely attempted. The safest way to achieve this is with teleportation. The expensive nature and severely limited number of transportation capacity has made them a favored for nobles and diplomats, but for mercantile and inter-continental travel, ships are still employed.

Glad you like my twin planet idea.
It'll also work well later with space combat, sky keeps, ships and apocaliptic wizard circles trying to magically smash them together. Very Happy
