- It is a low-magic Fantasy world
- The world is actually the moon of a gas giant
- Said gas giant is the primary source of light for the planet
- Beyond the world itself the gas giant has 12 other moons, one of which is constantly visible the others rotate into view during the year
- On occasion a different source of light is seen...the "sun" of the system
- The gas giant has its own ecology including some creatures that are visible from the world.
- The sky is filled with stars, constellations, and other celestial phenomenon
This is all interesting and unique. I like the Gas Giant idea with its own animals that can be seen. A literal "here there be dragons" but maybe they're something else.
So where do we go from here? Well, with the space around the planet done we now move into the planet. This brings us to our next set of questions:
1) How much (percentage wise) of the world is water?
2) How many continents are on the world?
For a point of example, the Earth is about 70% water with most of it broken up across the two major oceans (Atlantic and Pacific.) The Earth also has 7 continents.
Does our world have one super continent? Two or three giant continents? Is it full of small islands?
With the number of continents made we'll be able to talk about placement and climates.
Finally, remember when answering how much water that this is a world that will be populated with humans (low fantasy and all that) so the lower the water...the more the resource wars over water. At the same time, our own oceans prove that just because you have water doesn't mean it's drinkable.
Answer by noon on Saturday. With luck I'll have a (bad) map or three drawn for us to choose from on Monday.
