Over the last week or so, I've been tinkering with the idea of doing a collaborative city building project, based around player created stories and world building. The city itself is a large megalopolis, inhabited by about 13 million people from thousands of different species, races, religions, creeds and languages. These different peoples should be fantastical in design and origin. The weirder the better. The City is especially diverse as it sits upon a mysterious "fissure" that connects to the other parts of the super sized planet upon which our city is located. Our technology level is a strange mixture of fantasy, modern and industrial tech, with the specifics yet to be decided (players will obviously have some influence here). Other than that, not much else has been decided. In addition to designing the inhabiting races and characters, players will also help to shape our fair city. As we begin, I'm hoping for lots of input on our city's history, society, culture, politics as well as the geography of the city itself. To get us started, I have created a large map and sketched in what will likely be our Central Business District, as well as some of the surrounding neighborhoods. "The Fissure" and the beginnings of a rail network are also present. Spoiler : At the moment, if you wish to participate, here's a good place to start. Note that you don't need to follow this exact format as it's just to help you get your thoughts organized (though it's fine if you do). Don't worry about getting everything filled out all at once either. A lot of these things will begin to come together as we all build and collaborate. Race Name: anything you want Country of Origin: where your race is originally from, assuming they are not natives to The City. Characteristics: physical descriptions as well as any skills or unusual traits your race might have. Religion: Who do they worship primarily, if anyone? Brief History: Why are your people in The City? Are they refugees? Natives? etc Primary Location (within the city): Mark a spot on the map or tell me, so we can work together to design the neighborhood. Other Notes: Anything else you want to add. Feel free to design as many races as you want. Also, even if you don't feel like designing a race, but want to take part in designing the city, feel free to chime in or even edit the map yourself. I hope this goes over well. Have Fun!
