Hello. Due to the interest a lot of us had in the previous Cooperative World Building Project, and the fact that it has stalled indefinitely, we have decided to start a new one; aptly called Cooperative World Building Project 2 (CWBP 2). This project is currently just getting off the ground, nothing has been decided yet. So if you would like jump in the on the ground floor please do so. If'd you'd like to wait around for more definite information to be released feel free to do that also.
Here are some current threads dealing with CWBP 2:
We are seeking new entries for the world map here. We have a minimum of a month to get them in so please feel free to drop an entry in!
Cooperative project revival
In which we are discussing how to proceed with the project, our goals and the methods we want to use to achieve those goals.
CWBP 2 Deciding the map
In which we are still determining the overall map in which we would like to build our world. Ignore the closed poll, the topic is still completely open for both new maps and discussion. We will arrange a new poll when it is felt we fleshed it out enough to take a new vote.
CWBP 2 : Determining the genre and era
In which we are gathering input and trying to gauge peoples overall choice for the setting, era, magic level
CWBP 2 Template Thread - Rulers, Countries & Civilizations
A more specific thread in which we are creating the various cultures and kingdoms and countries associated with our world.
Things we need to accomplish before we open up the world for mapping:
1 & 2: Setting and World map
a)Special interests and points regarding the setting or map
b)Rough guidelines regarding important thematic maps, (tectonic plate, Major rivers etc.)
3: Refinement of the above into the conditions and levels we decide appropriate for informed map making.
4: Plots for mapping and our approach to project organization.
5: Setting up the preliminary guidelines for setting creation.
6: Mapping and setting construction!
A link to our discussion about the licensing of the project.
Regarding the licencing of this project. We have tentatively settled on a Creative Commons license with the Attribution, Share-alike, and possibly Non-commercial conditions.
We request that you try to endeavour to keep things submitted to the CWBP 2 separate from your other private projects, as they could also be subject to this license if they share material included in the CWPB 2 project.
IF you'd like to join this project, it's really easy, just jump in on the conversations with the "CWBP 2" tags and start throwing your ideas around. As the project moves forward things will necessarily follow some sort of formula in terms of participation, but we aren't there yet.
