Hello folks. I'm here to propose the idea of a collaborative world-building project based around the following premises: 0.- This is a world different from ours, it may have most of the same natural laws but definitively not all of them. For example, there is magic (we'll see how organized and how corporeal/present against subtle), different flora and fauna, maybe in addition to our own, maybe partially composed of mythical creatures as well as human/semi-human ones. I know there are folks here who know much more than me about climates, linguistics, tectonics and so forth who could make it more consistent than most "fantasy" universes. 1.- There was once a world where magic existed which went through several ages of glory and prosperity interleaved with dark ages, perhaps dating back to when the gods roamed the land. 2.- A cataclysm, worse than the other came and erased most of the magic, making it exist at the fringes of civilization and well hidden, completely forgotten. 3.- This gave birth to a society very much like our own in terms of what forces moved it and it's history. 4.- An event brought back this magic a changed the world during an age that wasn't medieval, but more modern in it's scope. I was thinking in between the Renaissance and the Belle Époque. 5.- If we have the motivation, perhaps take this into the space age.
