Good morning world.
I made myself a cup of mocha (.5T Chocolate syrup, 1T cocoa powder, 1T instant coffee. Add water to 12oz mug) did some walking, and now here I am. Hopefully ready to make words and watch movies / listen to music, however that goes.
If I am to speak my mind, I must speak of my worlds.
It's a mash-up with Solar-Lunar calendars and Indian Seasons, Moon's are influenced by Native American naming styles.
Days of the Senni (Ghana-inspired)
Why did I have to go making up a time keeping system? The aim is to strip the world of Judeo-Christian influence. Do you know how deeply this has infected all of humany? Timekeeping, laws, cultures, words, symbology.
I strip away what I discover, add something new. It's not out of some deep seated hatred for the triad. Honestly. It's a thought experiment that I started, enjoyed, and want to explore until exhaustion.
Did I mention how fun it is? It's quite fun. Our very concept of monsters can be rooted into religion. The things you fear reflect the things you cherish. So, by changing what a society cherishes, I discover new monsters.
Which is the point of consort - how do you have werewolves / demons without religious iconography?
It's not easy, for one, but the starting point is always fear. Fear of death, fear of loss, fear of pain.
