PostSubject: World Age?   Fri Dec 13, 2013 1:08 am

so i had a thought today at work.

How old is this world we're creating? is it millions of years old like ours, or is younger, say 10,000 years?

i know robert has put together an ancient civilization that fell to ruins, but was it the first or merely one of many?

im in favor of the young world thats still mostly unexplored. maybe the coastlines have been settled but the interior of most of the continents still hold danger and mystery.

primordial forests, dark and foreboding, home to mysterious creatures and ancient evils. places where the primal magics hold sway and the veil between this world and the lands of the fey is at its thinnest, allowing travel between the two worlds.

vast deserts filled with shifting sands and hot enough to bake the salt out of your body. what dangers lie beneath the swirling sands? only the dead know for sure.

great plains and savannahs stretching for hundreds or even thousands of miles. home to clans of nomadic centaurs and minotaur tribes. great herds roam these plains hunted by vicious predators, predators that would view even humans as a food source.

mountains, young and tall, jut from the earth reaching for the clouds. the mountains, untouched by erosion, have jagged walls and sharp peaks. their roots travel deep into the earth, unexplored by even the bravest of miners. what secrets are hidden beneath these massive sentinels?


thoughts?

Im digging the younger theme as well.

This isnt really a world for humanity yet... Maybe the ancient civilization was the first attempt to really push out. And it fell. but perhaps there was more at work to its fall than just what people think?

Yet theres been enough time for humanity to spread and forge new languages etc.

how about a nice low number like 10,000 years. that gives us some wiggle room for history without needing a massive timeline.

say the gods created the world and people then lived among them for the first 3,000 years. a war broke out around that time between the various nations as they expanded and drew the gods themselves into the conflict. thousands of mortals died, several Lesser Gods, and one Greater God. After this war the gods agreed to remove themselves form the mortal world.

that leaves around 7,000 years for the mortals to stand on their own and deal with the absence of their gods direct influence.
