Worldbuilding Snippet and Finding Inspiration in Metal · 2:36am January 23rd

Only a part of it I used for inspiration. The rest of it is inspired by greek/roman tragic myths.

I'm not dead, folks · 8:47pm Jun 20th, 2016

...Okay, it's time to break character here. I'm not gonna even pretend like I've been Discorded by the Discord you guys have been reading about in The Elements of Friendship. I have no excuse for my silence the past several weeks; I've just been terribly prioritizing basic mundane things over writing for you guys. As a way of apologizing for that, please accept the following.

Time for a little history lesson in the world of The Elements of Friendship:

Future Equestrias - I. Distance Into The Future · 5:13am Nov 23rd, 2015

Introduction:

Unless Equestria is destroyed fairly soon, it will have a future, and the future is an interesting place in which to set stories. The question is, what sort of future?

I. Distance

The first question is, how far in the future are we? Borrowing from science fiction, we can distinguish some categories: I'll divide them into five here.

A. Very Near

Vague Worldbuildy Things · 4:43pm Jul 18th, 2016

On Hunting Season, Scourge of Lightning asked a couple of questions about burliness that have branched off into some worldbuildy aspects, and more importantly, is getting really long. I'm also copying the conversation about Bigness just to make it easier to reference at the bottom. If you're really interested in the silly world in my head, there's some aspects here, though the post gets long for archival reasons. I'll

Questions about the Hyperverse · 4:45pm Jul 18th, 2016

So, especially including the archive of the questions Scourge asked, that last one got long. If you've got questions about the Hyperverse, even just including what people are doing or look like, as long as they aren't too spoilery, feel free to ask them here.

Worldbuilding for my world · 10:53pm Mar 1st, 2017

Now with 100% less name!
Seriously, at this point, just call it a general assortment of theories, conclusions, and common sense, thought up by Giginss.

Before I get to the actual worldbuilding, I'd like to leave the name of a few who have had the greatest impact on my ideas and theories.

In our previous blog, we talked about the harness. The next part is the wagon, right?

Actually, no. Before we get to the wagon, we've got several other important pieces of the hitch to cover.

Salvationverse Worldbuilding: Legions · 12:40am January 27th

Hey, I'm finally returning to FiMFiction after so long! I'm currently hashing out the details of the next chapter of My Little Queen: Friendship is Salvation, so I figured I'd give you all a bit of worldbuilding on how changeling society works in this universe. Specifically, the thirteen legions.

Unit of Measurement · 5:39am Jan 18th, 2018

It seems inevitable that the unit of power in the Systemé Equestriané should be our old friend, the horsepower.

However, it also seems impossible that it’s the piddling seven-hundred-and-some watts that our horsepower is. Not unless we want to argue that Big “House-Dragger” Mac and Maud “Instant Erosion” Pie, among many others, are putting out many times the notional horsepower.

It only looks worse if we stick with Watt’s assumption that a horsepower was 150% of a ponypower.

Question, Speculation, and Worldbuilding; Why do so many Pony works use Human weapons? · 9:49am Oct 14th, 2013

I was reading a pony fic the other day, and it revolved around Braeburn and a lever-action rifle. Between the bloated prose and the sheer absurdity of the gun mechanics, I couldn't sit through it.

Worldbuilding XII: Farming part 2: Plowing · 12:20am Sep 30th, 2018

We're going to talk about plowing, which is quite honestly probably the hardest part of the job because dirt is heavy. Unfortunately, it's something that you have to do every year . . . at least, if you want a crop that's worth something.

Griffin Music · 1:58pm Oct 21st, 2018

In the last chapter of A Bug on a Stick (chapter 15) there was a lot of music. Or, better said, music played an important role, and I tried to convey the feeling and the effect it had more than describing it exactly, as doing that would have probably been an exercise in futility. And yet I had some very specific sounds in mind while writing the scene and seeing it play out in front of my internal eye.

Surprise! :pinkiehappy:

Right now you might be wondering: "Why the hell did that idiot changed it's name and avatar? wtf?"

Well, I changed it because I planned for this account to be FoE only but you know what? Screw that!

Now you can call me Animus... or Anima ... or Mundus... or you can call me "The Mighty Draconequus WorldBuilder" (I like the last one a lot :trollestia:)

How to Get Your Mechanic to Spit in Your Oil/Worldbuilding · 12:50am Jul 12th, 2017

I was gonna write another blog post about mechanicing, because people like those, but then I decided to change subjects slightly, due to one of our customers today.

And this actually is a nice lead-in to another blog post that I was going to write eventually, so win/win, I guess?

So, this guy:
