Thank both of you for the warm welcome. I've noticed the slower nature of the Dev board, and perhaps I can find a friend or two as nerdy as myself to kick start some new and fresh ideas (if RL will let them find time). I am excited about this world, and I can't believe that there are not many many people who's imagination will catch fire if only they are exposed to this wonderful little gem. I mean the sheer number of contributions to date is a testament to that. I will do my part to fire up the creative juices.......
Perhaps I will start with a historical figure shrouded in a dark little myth . In this way my entry will have to be cross referenced and well researched in order to avoid any kind of fallacy. Any ideas as to region, time period, and peoples that might best kick off my learning and contributing?
I am an engineering student at the University of Washington, and though I love all things science my true passion is fantasy. To have stumbled on this site is really exciting for me, and I look forward to the opportunity I will have to share my ideas and writing style with all of you. As many avid readers of fantasy do, I would like to try my hand at writing an original novel filled with the adventure magic love and gut wrenching tragedy that fill the pages of my favorite stories. However; Iím not really an uber-talented writer. Even still I feel my creative juices flowing as I look over all of the wonderful compendium entries, and Iím sure I can put some well thought out pieces together. This seems especially likely given the open and friendly nature the developers seem to have.
My specific interests would be in creating peoples, history, and even religion, but Iím sure it would probably be best for me to start with a beast or two, and maybe even a specific character before I take on such large ideas. I fully intend to become an authority on Caelereth, though from the size and scope of this world it will likely take years for me to do so. I am open to any suggestions as to what kind of entries will be best suited to helping me better understand the world I will be traversing. Is a magical creature to ambitious for someone as new as I?
