    Post Alternate Earths

    Inspired by Qbista's entry about a tidally locked world, I wanted to share a site I discovered a few months back (and I had to google for a half hour to find it again).

    The site has several very well thought out and thoroughly explained planets that can support life - some of them are variations in the axial tilt of the Earth, some are terraformed extraterrestrial worlds and some are weird Earths, such as 90% of the Earth's water gone, seas and land swapped, et cetera.

    I think it's a very interesting read for those of us interested in world building.

    Cool, thanks for the link. The basic shape of the Inversia world would match Edgar Rice Burrough's Pellucidar. Considered yourself repped. I'm a sucker for this type of stuff.
    Cheers,
