    Yes. Worldbuilding is what I do best, and I'd love a forum to discuss it on. It also makes sense; without a background, can anything really happen in a story?
    Currently writing Hoenn Wars, a Travelsverse fic that needs no prior Travelsverse knowledge to understand. Chapter Seven, Sacrifice, is up.



    That's interesting; I might have a look when I have the time. Thanks!

    EDIT: Oh my god, these are too many links! Very specific...

    I'd enjoy that. The BMGf Shared World project might start up again in the new forum, as it seems to currently be on hold.

    Now that it's clearer what Ryuu meant with that, I approve. As Glory Blaze said, we should move the Shared World project there.

    Plus, as someone writing a non-Pokémon fic some behind-the-scenes info would be good for my readers IMO.


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?

    Yes, because to me, trivial information about stories and behind-the-scenes of one as well as the writer's planning and all that stuff are very very interesting to me.

    That would be a nice thing. I mean, where else can one place "infoporn" about their worlds and stuff?

    This would be loads of fun for anyone interested, and Sarcastically Insane is all too right about that - Without a background, there is no story.

    Given that I'm the one who started the current craze, yes.
