Worldbuilding — Korín, Sorín, and Arín 2021-09-15

By Max Woerner Chase

All right, I've got enough of a grasp on "things to direct worldbuilding for this setting" that now I'm comfortable with giving it a category. The setting is called Korín, Sorín, and Arín, and those are the names I'm using for its analogues of the Earth, Moon, and Sun.

To recap, I've been gradually developing the idea for this setting for a while. The quote-unquote original point of all this was to provide a setting that would allow me to direct and contextualize the development of a conlang. Which, um, oops, I'm several yaks away from that at this point. I do want to give that conlang its due at some point, but right now I want to work on the scaffolding of the setting.

And the strategy that I'm taking to develop that scaffolding, is to try to worldbuild just enough for a barebones-feeling roleplaying setting, and then bootstrap it from there by learning to GM and running games in it. And for that, I need:

This is probably more than I should be planning to do, but I've sunk so much of this cost already.

Here's where I am so far:

Anyway, I'm trying to remember if I forgot to do anything today, because I'm doing much better on time than I'm used to doing. Unless I think of something and go "oh no!" I'm going to take some notes on MOTR after I publish this.

It's a bit early now, as I said, but I'd rather take the win there, than try to wring more out of the next hour or so.

Good night.
