What’s Your Favourite Fantasy Sport?

With the Olympics starting this past week I’ve been pondering about sports, especially about fictional sports created by writers, directors or game developers.

The only game I could think of was Quidditch from Harry Potter.

So what fantasy games can you think of? and which is your favourite?

Landscaping Your World Map

“Continuing on from last week’s tutorial on Tectonic plates we’re looking at how the plates affect the landscape of your world and so the environment your characters will see and experience.

If you’re following the tutorial and drawing your own map then you will have the main islands drawn along with the tectonic plates of your world and the directions that they move. As a reminder here are the 3 different movements of a tectonic plates and what they do to the landscape around them.”

The World Building School Goes Live Wednesday 11th July!

I’m really proud to announce that the long awaited re-design of The World Building School will be put live tomorrow (that’s Wednesday 11th)

Here’s what you can expect from The World Building School:

  • A new world building article posted every Friday.
  • A free email subscription – so you can keep informed every time a new article is posted up on the school.
  • A growing library of World Building resources and guides.
  • Artwork featured from members of the DeviantART World Builders Guild.
  • Guest posts from other world builders and writers.

I will be sending out a special launch email to everyone who has requested notification of the new World Building School launch. If you’d like to be included on this email then please visit the website and add your email address to the box.

After I’ve sent out the launch email I will be deleting that email list so you can be sure that your email address is safe with me.

I will post another journal as soon as The World Building School goes live. If you’re an artist interested in featuring your artwork on the school to gain more exposure then please let me know, similarly if you would like to write an article for the school then that is also welcome.

E.g. if you’re a creature artists then maybe describe one technique you use to create realistic creatures. Or an armour designer may want to write about the different types of armour.

I look forward to the launch of The World Building School and hope it adds another dimension to the inspiration being collected over at The World Builders Guild on DeviantART.
