Roommates are frustrating sometimes, you know. I want to go to bed, and instead I wind up waiting for someone to get out of the bathroom so that I can use it before I do. Well, c’est la vie. We all have little things to deal with. Soon enough I’ll only have one roommate and we can find a way to share the bathroom when necessary (well… to a point anyway). So, for today’s exercise I’m going to give you a picture and I want you to use it as inspiration to design one part of the world you’ve started. This could be fleshing out one of the nations that you’ve already come up with or it could be creating an all new nation or continent for your world. Here’s your picture:

  1. Hmm, a new continent based on that picture. Now I want to do a story about a host of continent-sized city-starships roaming the universe. Maybe something like the Diaspora, only different. Instead of a select people being scattered into the peoples all around them, the entire world is scattered into the the barren galaxy. Then again, if they’re scattered by an invading enemy, that ends up feeling like a Battlestar Galactica rip off (and we’ve already had one of those… called Battlestar Galactica). So maybe they’re torn from their homeworld by a natural or them-made disaster? The wrath of an angry god? That would actually fit in the Diaspora theme.

    1. It would. It reminds me a little of the Eldar World-ships in Warhammer 40K. I’ve always has a love of truly giant space-ships. Things that are 20 to a few hundred miles long and house millions of people. It needs to be more of a thing.
