16/11/2021 - Starswirl's Second Law of Thaumium Growth · 9:16pm Nov 16th, 2021

It's been a while. Chapter 19 of Moondust is trucking along. No set date, as usual, but it'll definitely be out before Christmas, and it'll be the largest chapter by far, so hopefully it'll be worth the wait!

For now, here's some worldbuilding talk. I want to explain a concept that I won't have the chance to properly explore until Golden Ghost Library: Thau-nuclear Force, or "TNF". Colloquially known as magic.

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:

A note on wands... · 6:37am Mar 20th, 2020

So I was writing OtIoPW... and I encountered a small problem: For the tone of the story to hold, I need to write the wand purchase scene... from Ollivander's perspective. And for that, I needed to have an appreciation for just how much strain thirteen thousand students would put on his shop.

So I estimated...

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.

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.

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 Jan 27th, 2019

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.

Now that the fields are plowed, it's time to plant them.

There are broadly two different ways to accomplish this. Either you put the seeds underground, or you sow them on top of the ground.

Notes on Equestrian Government Structure (headcanon, obviously) · 7:40pm Oct 15th, 2017

Political system in Equestria can be most succintly described as "constitutional oligarchy". While nominally, the minutae government have had been largely delegated to elected representatives, major decisions are universally deferred to alicorns.

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:
