Getting Started

Alright, so first things we need are something to put on the main page, and some breadcrumbs for navigation. I could set that stuff up, and come up with the finer points of this world, such as size, distance from the star, and other things to mix with the lore of this place's creation to put on the main page. If I do that, however, I need to know: on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being "unrealistically small", 5.5 being "Earth", and 10 being "unrealistically large", what scale would you guys like to see? --Hammerhead (talk) 05:28, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Well we have 2 continents about the size of Asia reasonable spaced out (not to mention 3 other continents), so the world would be significantly be larger than earth. Which doesn't mean it has a higher gravity, because this is a completely different universe with magic and stuff. I might make the surface area of the planet at least twice as large as Earth's. So maybe... IDK 7-8?
As for the distance from the star- well I haven't really decided if this world will be geocentric or heliocentric. Geocentric worldview was very common in ancient mythologies, so it would fit, but a heliocentric system would allow people to create new planets if they wish (although that would be for the future). I might put it up for a vote. Zmeoaice (talk) 05:38, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
I was hoping for a vote, yeah, thought I was thinking that perhaps "size of Asia" would be a relative term, such as "same portion of the surface as Asia does on Earth" if we said it were smaller, but larger planet size does make for some neat stuff. I would vote for Heliocentric if only so I could make sense using my established knowledge with such things. After all, if we go with geocentric, we could then proceed to say that the world is actually flat, and start building things on the other side of the disc. Magic, after all. I'd be okay with saying that gravity works differently in this world, however, so we don't have to take that into account with every single thing we create (after all, the Titan Plateau already violates gravity pretty horrendously). --Hammerhead (talk) 05:47, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
