Today’s Poll Picked the setting of my current impulse project, Digging for Pants.
Okay this is going to be FUN!
Today’s #WorldBuildingWednesday is a setting I dreamed up for my incomplete #NanoWrimo 20…18? story The Jeweled Pomegranate , which could loosely be described as
Academics Having Adventures
+ Magical Items
+ Forced to Be Together (via said Magical Items)
+ A Ruined Wold.
So! The Ruins! In a time Before, the world was hit with a series of what are now called subside-ances – pretty much semi-magical sinkholes big enough to swallow, say, the Smithsonian.
That is… almost all I know.
I know there are universities with research professors (& grad students) who they send to explore in these places, either for “grave robbing” (they’re not inherently graves) or information acquisition, and all that grey area in between.
And I know that magical items *definitely* exist.
Oh, and that money exists.
So! I’m asking you: ask me questions! Help me work on #WorldBuilding this world of… exploring a previous era of the world!
