  1. The “Achotha” project as I call it, is a personal hobby and huge undertaking that’s meant to be built upon until the day I die, unironically. I want to complete the entire story of an entire realm of people, from the dawn of civilization to the end(s), with all the great people, kings, religions, factions, cities, wonders, biomes, and so forth throughout all of time. I am trying to do this through maps, art and videos, most of which are meant to be in-world so I can play with the unreliable narrator approach in an attempt to add more depth and mystery to the world.The realm of Achotha is a fantasy one, but not too fantasy. (As of now) there are only humans, and currently only one continent called Uthowpaba that I am working on, but much more is to come over time. Very little magic, lots of metaphysics/theology/philosophy, lots of lore, lots of maps, lots of war, lots of fun, and whatever else you may look for in a worldbuilding series/project.

  2. Many countries are named after a geographic feature (Sierra Leone), or after the people (France, England, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Mexico, China, India...)

  3. I personally don't worry a huge amount about names. My conlang is essentially just a cipher from the English word(s) so that part's covered, and for names itself I usually just pick something relevant. For example, one of my nations, The Ama-orurheej (Kingsland) has a culture of high praise for monarchs and worship the "Purama" ("Allking"), and therefore the name makes sense with the culture. There really doesn't need to be a huge amount of thought. It can be really simple or really hard depending on what you like/want to do

  4. Awesome! I have a rough idea that might interest you! And of course use it in your portfolio, it's the least someone can do in exchange for great art!

  5. This is for the sake of an ongoing worldbuilding project I've been working on, and this specific character is very important to it. I will most certainly use any art created and will even more certainly give apt credit. I appreciate anyone willing to give it a go!

  6. Thanks a bunch! We're really trying to explore every possibility that an ocean world can offer. More lore soon!

  7. "France" in German is called the "Frankreich", which I personally think is a much cooler name than "Frankish Reich". You do you though, it's your world lol. Cool to see the Frankish are getting some love, and having them be templars is very fitting. Afaik France was the "first Christian nation" and participated in some of the crusades, King Charlemagne being a good example even if he did fail both times

  8. A critique I have, that may just be personal preference, is that the naming convention you have is not immediately clear. I found myself double checking each word to make sure I had what I thought would be the right pronunciation. It's not an issue for the odd few names but I found that the majority of the names used had that issue.

  9. It's slightly like that by design. This culture spells stuff phonetically but I "english-ize" it to make it easier to type and put names into wonderdraft

  10. Heavy armor in the desert is certainly a choice, especially if they have a death wish.

  11. The overwhelming majority of the army doesn't wear plate armor, since as you mentioned plate armor in a desert is a recipe for disaster, that's why only a few of the best troops do it

  12. The story of the Dthookashau is very long, but the short version is that they’re an offshoot of the major ”Oofeemoreki” religion who believe that the world is inevitably going to end in some sort of cataclysm, and that it’s up to them to preach the word and build up there county of Oo-asee into a bunker to outlast the end of civilization and start anew. Not everyone in the country agrees with this idea though, the Gu-akairmoo-au-or have different opinions on this, and the two factions even waged a civil war over it that the Dthookashau won.

  14. There's a city that has a culture based around their pride that they were first to invent spoons. This is also the same city with a folk tale of the "Agzhurmee" who comes and steals doors off the hinges of wrongdoers

  15. I love the spoon city, and how did the tale of the Agzhurmee start lol

  16. How it started is unknown but usually chalked up to being a stunt by mischievous teens a long time ago who were never caught/suspected, so a supernatural explanation was given instead. Most people don't really believe the Agzhurmee exists and it's more of a children's story. There is this one time where there was a mass execution due to it though, but that was during a time of really extreme religious distress so the guidance of the mass door theft was better than any other religious guidance they were getting, lol.

  17. Damn, congrats! I've been at it for over a year and am only at 153. How do you do it?

  18. I say do both. Keep one copy of color, one without. They're both good

  19. Lol this is oddly adorable. I love it! Is it part of a game you're working on or something?

  20. My world is about to undergo a technologic revolution in which they invent serial production, really advanced glassworking (as in good enough to make highly advanced armor and optics from it), strandbeests, and the idea of civil service. The Civilizations in question are either highly individualist and industrious (thus the serial production and civil service), have a culture where light is very important (thus the optics and glassworking), and don't have access to horses so the strandbeest is the machine equivalent

  21. Strandbeests? Finally, they're amazing and need to be featured more in fiction. The transition you're writing about has a lot of potential. Do some of the individualists have reservations about the developing civil service? Glass armor and optics sound really cool.

  22. I'm glad you think it's cool! and yes the civil service thing is a part of a much bigger deal. A great king started making laws and such to quell crime, lessen the power of the extremely influential merchant class, invest in infrastructure, expand on civil service, make a bigger military, crack down on piracy/banditry, etc etc. This sparked a huge anarchist movement spearheaded in the shadows by these merchants. They'd eventually kill this great king in a rebellion and turn the region into an ancap dystopia

  23. I didn't and it wouldn't work since wonderdraft doesn't seem to work with unicode fonts. You'll have to use another image editor. In the past I've used GIMP but this time around I used Inkscape. Both are FOSS and you can do a bunch of text effects and curved layouts as well although neither are as intuitive as wonderdraft for this kind of thing

  24. Good idea, for some reason I never even considered using another program for the text lol. Thanks for the reply, that helps a lot

  25. How did you get the greek characters into wonderdraft? I tried with phonetics for my conlang and it wouldn't let me lol

  26. I decided to make a map of my world's main continent with all the biomes and known cities/towns and roads. This map is a tiny bit out of date, because there's a bit more detail where that quarry is in the red in the up-to-date version. The original version is also 2x the size but it was to big to put on reddit. If you want to check out my worldbuilding project that's been going over this continent at length then come check it out here

  27. I will admit that I did not read it all, but I just wanted to say that that map is really cool! How'd you make it?

  28. The nation of Oo-a-air is a fairly recently developed nation on the continent of Uthowpaba that was founded in the 1049th year of the 2nd era during the “West Oidugou Partition”, and is home to a perpetual struggle between the Gu-akairmoo-au-or, a powerful group of crystal-clad researchers from the quarry city of A-airngirthbi, and the doomsday-cult based in the Uyj U-ina Umown called the Dthookashau who want to turn the land of Oo-a-air into a theocratic and utopic bunker to outlast the end of the world. These two factions are both powerful and influential within Oo-a-air and beyond their borders and have been struggling with each other politically (and at one point through a civil war) since the Dthookashau’s exodus into the region in about the year 1340. Despite this, they are largely reliant upon each other. The Dthookashau needs the Gu-akairmoo-au-or’s extensive knowledge to aid in their survival in the fairly harsh and barren desert environment, whereas the Gu-akairmoo-au-or need the Dthookashau for much needed manpower, diplomacy with religious nations, and for their use of light magic. Though their grudges, competition, and differences remain, as of the 1661st year of the 2nd era (the furthest I’ve world built the world’s history so far) the land of Oo-a-air is a province (or several, depending on who’s asked) of the Empire of Achu-ir and are kept in check by the Eternal Champion of Oik Kuneek who leads the empire.The first image is one pertaining to the Dthookashau’s interpretation of the “Four Corners” prophecy, the second is of the nation + climate, and the third is of the starting controlled nations during the very start of the civil war between the Dthookashau and the Gu-akairmoo-au-or. If you’d like to know more, come check out my worldbuilding series. I just made a video on this very topic!

  29. I'm ecstatic! I absolutely love this mod. It's practically a completely different game, and a great one at that. I can't wait for what's in store for us in the future
