My love of science fiction is only matched by my love of fantasy.

Let's make a world where the two of them meet!:)

Rodinia is an open forum world for creations that span the two genres.

Though, most of the myths and magic are actually an ancient and mysterious technology.

Here's some of the basics:

I'm up for a one on one role play tour of the world if you are interested.:)

i would love to have some nice game ^^
i would like to play Pathraput or, if would prefer a place on your continent, someone from the Elysian Plateau...
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012
Would you like to do a situation where Pathraput goes to the Elysian Plateau?
You'll play Pathraput and I'll be the environment and other characters.

hm... he could find himself in the middle of a shamanic ritus where the Medicinman uses some kind of energy-portal-device, to open up a gate to his Acestors home ^^. Something happens on the other side. An arrow or energyblast from the other side kills the Shaman who is Pathraputs friend. Pathraput takes the device from the dying shaman who tell him to bring his soul home. Pathraput passes the portal with the dying Shaman. The portal closes behind them. Voila ^^

That sounds perfect!
I have another portal on my side.

Pathraput awakens to three sweating women who just pulled him through space-time.
One is older, one is younger and one is his age, one of the three may have shot his friend.
Or the bolt may have come from quite far away.
His Shaman's soul has been abducted by the consciousness of the forest.
Pathraput is not sure of the best course of action but the cool moist forest air feels good on his dry desert skin.

[haha, so my shaman was right,/since its also a time-portal-device)saying that the gate leads to the land where his ancestors are living]
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012
Yeah, it would be neat if Brume is from Rodinia's future. but maybe they can exist at the same time too.
LaughtonMcCry Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Student General Artist
Well, i mean that they are the same time, but now, pathraput and his friend may oerhaps have traveled back in time to your Norn girls)
Pathraput stands up slow. he breathes in deeply and fixes with his eyes one of the woemen after an other, looking for whepons and trying to reckn their physical strength.
"Which has done THIS?" pointing at his dead friend.
farawayforest Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
So cool!:D
All three ladies are unarmed and hardly even clothed.
But, the Teleporter behind them is giving off all kinds of unknown energy signals.
The weather is hot and humid, the sun is just about to set.
When Pathruput asks his question,
the youth and the mature woman accidentally glance at their elder.
The eldest speaks:
"Great Lord of the Outer World, please understand, this was an accident
The Time Machine Teleporter was built long ago, we are just humble Keepers of the Way and don't fully understand it's capabilities."
She looks at the other two women awkwardly.
"We had it on too high when your friend came through."
The youngest Norn chimes in.
"We had it tuned perfectly when you came through!"

Their use of Pathraput's language is crude but it's impressive they learned as much as they did given the space and time between them and Pathraput.

"You're friend is not dead though!"
Continued the elder.
"His soul is lost somewhere in the forest, but he is well.
We may be able to find it and return it to his flesh."
The Elder takes a deep breath and looks at her companions.
"We seek to change events that have not yet occurred.
That is why you were summoned!"
All three women bow their heads low in a sigh of submission.

*chuckles* Any thoughts?
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
I'd like to pick up our adventure if you want.
Or it might be really cool if we start fresh, and you make up all your character's attributes.

I have this half formed idea in the back of my head but I'm not sure I can articulate it yet. I'm attempting to try and integrate some of my ideas of Nowhere into the landscape and ideas of Rodinia... but I haven't quiet figured out how I want to do it. We could probably incorporate some of what we were doing before. Maybe skip ahead a bit in the journey.
farawayforest Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012
That sounds exciting, I was trying to come with a name for Nowhere for a long time. I came up with Nether Haven for the forest.
To bad Utopia seems rather over used, I think it translates into "NO Place".
Plus I like the idea of a positive twist on oblivion or nothing.

Yeah,we could pick up or start fresh in the forest or Elysium.

I have been thinking about the stories of the few courts among other things. One of the threads that runs through much of the mythology that I think would be interesting to play around with is the idea of stolen children and changelings.

For example what if there is a place that is hidden from the rest of the world, underground by magical or technological means or a combination thereof. For example the place is similar but slightly different from Rodinia it could include a small area or a large area, but the doors to and from are controlled by technology.

Children or even young adults with exceptional gifts or talents were often taken to amuse the fae with their 'gifts'. Changelings were often left in their place. There were two types of changlings ones that were made out of wood or straw and magic to look like children (again a technological solution could be found here), or an actually fae or fae child was left and made to look like the original child. This often lead to problems as the child as they grew older would act out, etc.
farawayforest Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Wow, those ideas sound really cool!
I like the idea if the replacement child made of wood
or something, enchanted to look like the missing child.

What if Nowhere was inside a machine, not too much like Tron but that sort of idea. Only it's in a fogotten computer somewhere so the world has evolved on it's own and serves no outside users. The people in the world are like thought entities. But you want a Fae side and a real side right?

A huge undergound world would be nice too. Maybe with an artificial sun inside, and the people don't know there's anything out side the cave.

Actually I like the idea of the computer program being the other side. What if over time the programs within the computer had developed and figure out a way to transition? Perhaps they have their own bodies they can move around the real world in? A way that they can.... rip a persons brain into the computer or... maybe the computer has come in contact with something or someone else that has allow the characters within to psychically transition between the two world; outside Rodinia and inside the computer? Some combination of technology sitting forever and some plant life growing inside of it, or fungus and the properties of the two... maybe a combination of old tech and sentient tech, living tech and it has managed to give the world within the computer life on the outside?

If any of that makes sense?
farawayforest Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
Yeah, that sounds really cool.
Perhaps there was an ancient city with a huge central computer. It went off line during the war. Over the centuries a sentient fungus grew within the circuits. Awakening the computers data banks. It created an idealized virtual world based on literature and games and stories it found in the machine. The fungi's offspring fashioned themselves into more and more elaborate fea. It was discovered there was an outside world, Rodinia, but they only way to get out was to steal a real persons body. There's still a town near the computer bank who's children have been being transformed or are disappearing...:)

I hope that's not too confusing.

Played with Mei today at work.
I wonder if you'd ever want to do the free form kind like we do.
Maybe I could be a character in your world.
It sure is a fun way to work out and come up with ideas.
BTR90 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
why not although I'm new to RP on line so I'd need help
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2012
Ok, well the way I play is super simple.
After you come up with a character.

For example: let's say you're a malfunctioning cyborg soldier left over from the war.
Your memories gone but you still have your vehicle and a weapon.
You travel the wasteland looking for food, fuel and pieces of your lost past.

Do a quick drawing if you want.
design you tank.

I'll tell you where you are and what's going on and you say what you do next.
We'll just go back and forth in the comments section.
BTR90 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that sounds simple enough
farawayforest Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2012
Ok, so you wanna be that guy?
He probably looks like some you've drawn, And I bet you have a few armored vehicles he could choose from.;)
Is he gonna be from Rodinia or Earth?
Just so we can get some history.
