Here's a continent. What occurs on it?
>>
>>43458766
Monsters fall from the sky. the place is a shithole now.
>>
>>43458781
How do they survive the impact?
>>
>>43458786
They fall in gel filled rocky cocoons.

Shooting stars aren't things you wish on here, they're signs of impeding monster activity.
>>
>>43458786

Monsters are trapped in giant space prisons that end up being half buried in the earth, hence dungeons.
>>
>>43458796
Where did the giant space prisons come from?
>>
>>43458801
Gods threw them up there when they took care of all the monsters.
>>
>>43458766
Knitting is a favored pastime on this continent, to the point good knitwear is regarded as high art.
>>
>>43458766
A huge ass fucking tree in the middle.
>>
>>43458806
What kind of gods are there? Are we Dark Sun, 5e FR, Exalted?
>>
>>43458806

gravity is slowly dragging them back down. Gravity is caused by the one huge daemon lord trapped at the center of the earth. The final part of the campaign is the players deciding if they want to defeat the ultimate evil, but in doing so destroy the world. This is part of the cycle of the universe.
>>
>>43458832
We make our own Gods. Go. God of Trash.
>>
>>43458828
Armor is made by knitting various materials. Leather armor is knitting leather strips, steel armor is woven steel, etc.
>>
>>43458766
A maddened god stripped of some of his divine power roams the earth. His 4-armed body is shaped like a humanoid tree made of metal, and is completely covered in long jagged thorns and spikes. A large razor-wind blizzard of broken-off thorns swirls around him. The thorns are powerful catalysts, but if enough thorns imbed itself in your skin, you become a thorn demon. The thorns can only be blocked with feelings of apathy, regret and fear of social interactions (ie the Hedgehog Dilemma)
>>
Rolled 10 + 5 (1d10 + 5)

>>43458832
Fuck that, custom pantheon.

Though, lets keep it down to a manageable number.
>>
>>43458838
No, I mean, did the gods stay around or fuck off and die? Are they active or are they silent except for ineffable miracles and their priests who interpret them? Are the gods just ascended PCs?
>>
>>43458847

After they took care of the monsters/demons and put them in prisons, they started squabbling among each other and naturally got to putting each other in prisons too. Turns out most monsters and demons are gods.
>>
>>43458828
>>43458839
>>43458842
Mad god is knitted from metal, magic and the remains of his predecessor.

Didn't turn out right, hence him being maddened.
>>
>>43458844
15 major gods is pretty manageable.

There should be a God of Astronomy, whose clerics are important to plotting the fall of monster meteors.
>>
>>43458844
The goddess of knitting and the hearth is represented in temples as having many arms and quite fat
she might be a spider
>>
>>43458859
The god was knit by mortals seeking a protector from the monster rain after it was killed by another god.
>>
>>43458847
The God's are on a massive pub crawl right now across the lands. Everyone is dealing with their shit.
>>
>>43458859
>>43458839
>>43458842
Thorns make for excellent needles, but has a bad habit of adding "random" effects to the thing your weaving.

You might a sword that's philosopher huntsman, or an armor that loves boobs
>>
those mountains looks like worms.
>>
>>43458836
>>43458883
They're the earth pushed up by the demon gods worm like tentacles.

He wants out.
>>
>>43458766
There's a big-ass dester in the lower right of the continent, between the middle of the y-shaped mountain range and the farthest right mountain range on the bottom.
>>
>>43458883

Reminds me of australia with the gulf of carpentaria on the west instead of the north.
>>
>>43458862
The Totally-Not-Spider Goddess of Hearth and Knitting lives in the Giant Tree in the Middle>>43458831
Crazy Thorn God circles the tree every couple of months
>>
>>43458831
This.

It is miles tall and the original home of the elves.
>>
>>43458883
To keep in linen with the knitting concept, maybe those could be gigantic silkworms, sought after for their extraordinarily high quality threads.
>>
>>43458905
All the gods live on or near the planet. No alternate planes.
>>
>>43458861
>>43458917
Astronomy god has a bitching observatory in the western mountains.

>>
>>43458842

>>43458871
He was killed because he was the only one strong enough to throw monster prisons into space. Which is why there's nobody throwing them back up there when they land.
>>
>>43458913
The RazorWind Divers is separate and isolationist group of elves worshipping the Not-Spider Goddess

They periodically dive into the razor blizzard of the Mad Thorn God to acquire cursed thorns to be blessed by the Goddess. Not all make it back.

Thorn God's thorn demons eventually break down and become thorn djinns riding the blizzard. Fortunately for him, there is a constant supply of stupid adventurers and crazy elves razor diving for that sweet thorn needles
>>
>>43458766
The ocean is actually just a gigantic blue forest.
>>
>>43458842
Since the thorns can only be shielded by angsty teens, apathetic hobos or people in the deepest dregs of despair, a booming slave trade is commencing around the center lands of the continent.
>>
>>43458913
Elves in this setting refer to a species of upright lizardfolk.
>>
>>43458977
The slavers sell thorns on the coast, the Razor Wind Divers want them taken to their goddess.

They don't get along.
>>
>>43458951
The ocean is a giant kelp forest. It's inhabited by a race of hermit crab monstergirls.
>>
>>43458766
The islands to the east are actually a massive fallen meteor cocoon. Nobody knows what's inside of it.
>>
>>43458988
>>43458996
And monster guys, and straight up monsters.

It isn't a pleasant place.

Only thing that can pierce their armor reliably are God Thorns provided by slavers.
>>
>>43458795
>>43458796
>>43459016

Prisons (Dungeons) were low to medium security. Rocky cocoons were for the real badasses.
>>
>>43459017
But the only civilization, at least around this continent, is hermit crab people. Not South Park crab people though, because we want PCs that aren't Neogi.
>>
>>43458996
Deep in the trenches of the Kelp Forest lives unnerving abyssal monstergirls. They prey on the hermit crab monstergirls that swim too low.

These and the coastal fucks with the God Thorns has made the Hermit Crab Monstergirls to be a military state. They augment their shells with fallen rocky meteor cocoon fragments.
>>
>>43458766
The mountains to the west are the home of a race of intelligent sphinxes.
>>
>>43458931
>>43459067
Sphinxes are to the Astronomer God as Elves are to the not-spider Knitting Godess.

Servants, guardians and all round bros.

There was a child who tripped and fell. This indirectly caused a major war between whoever lived in the northeast and whoever lived in the southeast.

In this setting, Jews are massive termite-like insects with partial hivemind. They are known for their prominent mandibles and love of hoarding shiny things such as coins. They live mostly in the great tree in the center, but some make outposts of mud huts all over the continent.
>>
I love these threads
>>
I did a thing.
>>
Sheep are prized livestock all over the continent, for their wool can be spun into threads and knit into warm winter clothing... Though, it is said that mountain tribes use the whole sheepskin, wool and all, to make the coats that shield them from the rough winters. Naturally, such practice is considered barbarous.
>>
I used to make these threads a lot.

We'd have great times. Then a bunch of fuckwits would introduce some really weird shit that I personally disliked so i'd start trolling with stuff.

Still love my original thread for New Jhelom. Check it out on 1d4 chan. Bit of a trip.

Jew magic can't protect from falls! only from falling prices!

And now there's angels wandering about the place making Nephilim with the locals!

To be fair, Jewesses *ARE* Monstergirls by /pol/'s warped conception of such things, so once /pol/ inserts jews it's a fairly small step from there to inserting other types of monstergirls.

Like dragons, older they get, the larger, with seemingly no upward limit.

When the ancient and venerable King Mwumwuuwuwumwumum Wum Mwumo died during the War of the Cumulonimbular Apostasy, his corpse was so large that it was turned into what is now known as the city of Cloud Drop.

A tribe of Centaur live in the very north western corner on the peninsula. Hundreds of years ago a legend began that a centaur had ventured to the centre of the island and seen the many hooved god of their tribe, who fixed the centaur with a baleful glare that left him convinced his tribe should never venture to the centre again. What the centaur saw was a Beholder, although it did not know it.

Since then the tribe's elders have forbidden going off the peninsula into the mainland. As a result of this the centaur tribe split into 3 smaller tribes who all fight over the now scarce resources, while all upholding their suspicions. Recently a young impulsive warrior decided to disregard this sacred rule, and took 4 of his brothers towards the centre of the island. That was 2 months ago and no-one has seen them since. The centaurs are scared that the youngsters may bring down the wrath of their god and are becoming increasingly agitated.

The Elemental plane of Lactasia exists, meaning Pastry magic is a thing as well as cheese elementals (Elemmenthals). Pastry Wizards are very respected by all of the nomadic peoples that live on a milk-cheese-meat diet. The homebase of this Magic School is in Rockfort, the 600 years old Fortress-Cellar.

The Commonwelath of the Jellyfish people is a highly complex state with multiple heads of state and offices with contradictory powers. Because of this politics in the Jellyfish are extremly complicated. Currently there is a huge standoff between the Monarchist Syndical Union Movement and the Totalist Liberal Alliance over a matter of cloud management.
>>
>>43467155
Whoops didn't mean to link.
>>
>>43467068
The only reliable source the centaurs have about the world outside of their peninsula is provided by traveling Jewish merchants that trade with iron and copper with the centaurs in exchange of amber jewelry, one of the few overproduced goods of the Centaur Realm.
>>
>>43466619

Actually for the original setting I was coming up with for that map, I did have centaurs living in the northwest peninsula and being all Scottish Highlanders.[/spoilers]

Both. This routinely leads to wormholes tearing open. There is a 50 50 chance that within is a no-space, or a horrible, twisted hell from which there is no escape. For about twenty minutes. You can't tell until you're inside.

Clones expire at random. Noone knows which the clones are.

Sub terrain empire of Insects.
>>
>>43472980
What if the subterranean empire of insects lives in the gigantic silkworms' bodies like parasites? The silkworms themselves rarely move since they're asleep, and centuries of sediments later, they look like mountains. When they move in their sleep, earthquakes happen.
>>
>>43474512
>and centuries of sediments later, they look like mountains. When they move in their sleep, earthquakes happen.
That's insane.
>>
>>43474512
So these sentient insects become the silk that makes up the world?
>>
>>43478526
Maybe when they die, they sacrifice themselves into being the gigantic silkworm's food, and in a way becomes part of the silk?

>>43478591
I was thinking that since the mountains were created by the demon god pushing out, but are also inhabited by giant worms, perhaps they're eating the gods tentacles whenever he breaches the surface.

Which would mean if you go to the mountains, you might see a giant worm fighting a giant tentacle.

If you suspect that a friend or a loved one might be a catfish, you are required to contact your friendly neighbourhood inquisition immediately
