Envisioning Creature concepts of your own

For the sake of keeping Project Alternatum simple to envision, I have mostly been sticking to creatures that you would find in the Elder Scrolls, Middle Earth and Warcraft Universes (so basically creatures from D&D, seeing as if you look closely, D&D tends to be the basis of most ideas implemented into those universes) in order to refer to familiar creatures that people playing or reading though my campaigns would be able to easily imagine what I am portraying. 538 more words

The integration of irreligious and unspiritual practices into a fantasy world

In Bejaan, the world that most of Project Alternatum takes place in, religious influence is the cause of many cultural ideologies and societal structures. Some societies have very strict theological pantheons, and are willing to die for their beliefs. 1,015 more words

The origins of human civilization and the Desert Magnus

The Human race is not ubiquitous throughout the world (Bejaan), and is in fact suppressed into a corner of it. They inhabit what is now the Desert Magnus and the small mountain range (The Funteina Mountains) to the North of it. 834 more words
