Title: Creation of a world
Post by: Cyst on October 31, 2009, 07:04:26 pm
This is currently to gauge interest and get opinions.
We start with a blank blue map, representing the ocean. We then roll on who gets the map first. Then after that person has done some work it will be time to roll again. Rinse and repeat until the map is made.

Then we begin the ecosystems. We number the continents and islands and roll. The continent that matches the roll will be used first. Then we roll to see who goes first on the ecosystem. Winner goes first and we roll again until we have a stable ecosystem (10 times as many Plants as Herbivores. Ten times as many Herbivores as Carnivores. Ten time as many Carnivores as Scavengers. Ten times as many Scavengers as Decomposers.)

Then we create civilizations. As with ecosystems we roll to see which continent and who goes first. The continent is divided by the winner and we roll again. This continues until all continents (not islands) have at least 2 civilizations.

The we do stuff some stuff from there.

I'm going to assume we won't be doing it Sagan 4 style, we'll just be filling in the ecosytems from when sapient life appears. Otherwise, we'd need to factor in tectonic movement over the millenia.

Plus, I have an other idea when we get to making civilisations, but I'll talk about that later.

This (http://www.elfwood.com/farp/thewriting/liljenbergworlds/liljenbergworlds.html) site will help.

Yes, I'm interested.

I'll set up the key now

Dark Green: Boreal/Polar Forest
Red: Badlands/Volcanic Region
Purple: Tropical/Equatorial Rainforest
Orange: Mountainous
Grey: Tundra/Ice cap
Yellow: Desert
Teal: Swamp

Sort of. We will have humans and then set up an ecosystem around them. Then we will set up civilizations.

@ Everyone Else:

Thanks for showing interest. I just realized a problem. There is no dice roller on the forum is there?

Here's a less eye hurting but possibly more difficult to edit because i did it in gimp and melded a load of diffrent blues map, it's also substantially larger (hence i posted a link) http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/9554/bluexr.jpg (http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/9554/bluexr.jpg).

Not sure if it's a better idea, you might want to just change the colour of Badger's map.
