The Worldbuild Project
is a wiki that, much like TV Tropes
, anybody can edit to put up an idea they think is good; the eventual goal being to create a Tolkien-esque
Users create an account, which lets them add new articles, edit and move articles, and vote on whether or not to canonize an article. When an article is liked by a great enough ratio of voters, it becomes Canon
; after this, new articles have to tip-toe around the already established ones, lest they be downvoted to oblivion for conflicting with prior Canon
In addition, a recently added section of the site allows users to add narratives and short stories to the Project. Similarly to the articles, these can be rated by other users.
(These are tropes for articles that have not yet been canonized, but still may be accepted.)
- Alien Sky: Two moons orbit the planet: Telusis and Quintus.
- All Monks Know Kung-Fu: Averted with the Scolaris Monks. They fit much closer to the 'preserve knowledge' aspect of actual European monks.
- Barbarian Tribe: The Selahren are an island's-worth of warrior-savages. Despite that, they don't go on pillaging and burning rampages, so they might not be quite as extreme an example as most.
- Civil War: One of these ended a dynasty in the Acasi Empire, which in turn ended a twenty-year war between the empire and the neighboring city-states of Rhael.
- The Conqueror: The deceased emperor Verek kel Aldeos desperately wanted to be one of these. After spending nearly his entire reign at war, he still wasn't very close, though.
- Eldritch Location: The Fineum Cuniculum certainly qualifies. No one knows how it got there? Check. Mysterious engraving all down the walls of a three kilometer tunnel? Check. People randomly disappearing? Check.
- Knight Errant: Travelling about and righting wrongs? Sounds like a classic scenario for a Rohomajeshi Justicar.
- Magic Knight: Both the Sword-Dancers and Justicars of the Rohomajeshi fit this description to some extent.
- Mundane Utility: The Treaded Path of the Rohomajeshi find a lot of mundane uses for channeling spirits.
- Soul Power: The Rohomajeshi have this ability, coupled with WillingChannelers.
- Willing Channeler: The Rohomajeshi act as these in exchange for powers from spirits.
