In a timeline where Persia loses its grip on the ancient world and allows for the Classical civilizations to prosper and begin the first stages of proto-industrialization, world events that take millennia for our timeline happen one after the other as the dominoes fall. As the cogs of the world turn faster, innovation rocks the world with gifts of prosperity and power, unlikely superpowers rise and tumble, and the inescapable reach of war leaves areas of the world uninhabited to this day. Giving way to the present day, the entire solar system is changed and completely unrecognizable to us, where the antiquity weaves incredibly with science and chances are unlimited to anyone...Hello everyone, and welcome to the GBWCP: The Pantheon's Engine! This is a necro/refresh of the former Great Big Worlda Collaborative Project, the details of which you can see in this here post. The creator, @Bicentius , shall still be the spiritual overseer of the project, but we will now have more leads in the project, with them being @mikroraptor, @XFE, @Pen, and I. We have also extended out to other communities to scope out potential contributors, as well as setting down a to-do list, with a complete overhaul of the Discord.
To quote Bicentius on the previous OP:
"So I've recently come across several worlds/pixel maps that have a lot of different elements. I think there isn't a specific classification for them but here are the examples:
These two are from Mr. Imperator Roma over on deviant art.
And this one is from @rvbomally
I really like these sorts of map compilations and I think they add an immense level of structure and clarity to oneshot scenarios, especially those set in the future. I don't know how many people would be interested in this, but I'd like to make a pixel/worlda map collection that is as large as possible. Multiple worlds, asteroids, moons, planets, terraforming, sea rise, micro worldas for religion, culture, alliance systems etc. "
The project's premise is "WI Centers of technology, culture, and political Power are equally spread across the world?" with the POD being somewhere in the 1st millennium BC in the Middle East, with a cyberpunk theme to everything, and will have space lore as well.
The current project's goal is to make a detailed Earth & Moon WorldA with notes and pixel art, with a Mars maps following close. If those are successful, we can then move on to the other celestial bodies, and finally the wormhole worlds.
If you are interested, please PM @XFE or me for a discord invite! As mentioned before, we have a lot of non-AH.com lads, so this thread will mostly be for updates on the project, insets, and supplementals, with some limited conversation. The discord will be our primary hub of communication.
