World-building for a VSF imagi-nations wargame campaign
« on: October 05, 2020, 09:57:59 PM »
Howdy all,

Inspired by the work of others like Ross Macfarlane, I've been slowly plugging away at an "imagi-world" setting for my late 19th-century 54mm battles to take place.

I've written up some of the process/tools and inspirations here if anyone is interested:

www.atthequeenscommand.com/19th-century-wargames-imagi-nation-pelia/



To intro the setting:

Pelia has three major continents, Esk and Toria in the east, and Atelia (or, “the third/new continent”) to the west. Esk and Toria encircle the Corican Sea, named for the ancient empire that dominated its shores on both continents. Esk and Toria’s proximity has meant the two land masses have been connected by trade, migration, and war ever since ancient times, but Atelia was only discovered in 714 A.C. by the Berengian explorer Warpriest Emmanu Atel, leading an expedition financed by the court of Princip Navrie Orskuv of Alekser.

Atelia, separated from the other two continents by the vastnesses of the Tyrannic Ocean to its east, and the Penitent Ocean to its west, developed largely in isolation. It is believed the native inhabitants are descendants of lost mariners and traders from a semi-mythical seagoing empire on Toria that predated even the Coricans.

Thank you both! I've really been enjoying the process of worldbuilding itself, which means it can sometimes get a little out of hand...
