THe idea is simple. We create a blanco planet. It's empty, nothing on it. Then everyone can fill it in.
Hybrid creates a mountainkingdom ruled by a council of mages. Grass is holy in the kingdom and symbolises growth and life. SO in the capital you got this huge grasspark. Then Ali attaches plains to the mountainkingdom. There life dwarfs underground. They are afraid of light and never get to the surface. Because of it's covered with grass, Hybrid's kingdom demands that it is a holyland. No man of his kingdom can enter is excepot the highmages. Blaat doesn't like it here and creates her own Archipal far away.
This is just an idea. People can create multiple nation, attached to eachotehr or not. But you can't force other people to be your neigthbour. I should be fun and not a race. You can't win.
Maybe when the world is pretty full someone can make a centrall map, made out of everyones personal maps. At the same time we can bring the world to life bymaking things about it. You can write mythologies of their ancestors, you can write a diary of a person who lives in your country, compose folkmusic, make drawings, write poems, create a tradesystem with valute. Just give it details.
One thing we first need to sort out, is it fantasy or SF? I would go for fantasy since that leave a lot open. Even in fantasy you can use robots but in SF you can't use magic So about magic I though up the following:
Magic is controlled energy, with the energy you can alter things etc.We can use magic with our imagination, because you need to imaging what to do with the energy. You can summon a dragon, becuse they don't exist, you must create one yourself, with your imagination.
laser is energy, so you can use uncontrolled energy as a weapon, make a beam of it, do whatever you like. since laser is light we can say energy is light. Thsi explains the lighteffects of magic. The sparks, or the red ball when someones casts a firespell, it's red because the caster thinks it should be. Thisway you can use energy to make weapons of it or use it as magic, you choose, fair enough?
I think with this muge creative souls this can works.
so well, some comment pls
One thing more. Don't spam. Create worlds, not just an evil dictotaorship. Create laws, customs, a geography. Make it a peace of art. thank you that's all
