  • Carving Myths And Gospels In The Surface Of Blackbloom

    I want to hear some myths and legends and gospels of the aforementioned gods of Blackbloom. You’re going to write them. You have free rein as to how you write them. As flash fiction? As an epic poem? As a professor giving a lecture, as a man telling the myth to his children around a fire?

  • The Chosen Cartography Of Blackbloom

    Two things are becoming abundantly clear: First, we’re eventually going to need to track all this stuff. A Wiki, maybe.

Took me hours to sift through the killer options for gods and goddesses. But, I think I’ve nailed it. Some early comments: While the more fictional and non-encyclopedic entries were […]

  • Worldbuilding Challenge: The Gods Of Blackbloom

    It’s time, then, to populate this pantheon. Your job: Come up with a god or goddess of the world known as Blackbloom. You have 100 words, and only that. I will choose as many gods as I find fit into the pantheon. Go forth, then, and continue this mad genesis, world-builders.
