Azrok and I are bored, so we're designing a fantasy world for all of us to play around in.
Feel free to help

Races:
Spoiler:
 
Planet: Larger than Earth. 80% Water. Large continents. Lots of islands.
Age of Sail era.


Factions:
Elves:
Spoiler:
 
Dwarves:
Spoiler:
 
Independent Humans:
Spoiler:
 

Traders:
Spoiler:
 

Private Companies/Mercs:
Spoiler:
 
Religion: Varies from region to region but it's mostly polytheistic.

General lore:
Elves: Elves are the single most powerful military and political entity of this world. They maintain control of the largest empire on the planet, made up of numerous colonies, duchies, and smaller kingdoms. Their navy is both large and well disciplined.

Dwarves: The dwarves control the second largest 'empire'. Made up of thousands of individual holds who have all legged allegiance to a high king. In times of strife the high king can call the holds to war, where they can combine their individual might to challenge the Elves. Their military forces are heavily armoured, hard hitting, and fearless. This has translated into massive steampowered behemoths at sea. Which carry massive carronade broadsides. With mortars for long range use.

Humanity/everyone else: Humanity never united in any meaningful way. Many human kingdoms fell to Elven and Dwarven expansion. In general the independent lords and duchies all have small navies which are primarily used for escorting trade vessels. As such they're fairly quick with a considerable armament.

Warfare:
Long gone are the days of knights and archers. Warfare has evolved, it has become far more gentlemanly. Two opposing sides form lines and shoot at eachother until someone gives up. Of course it's not really that simple.
Although it may look rather boring, the sheer amount of planning and communications that go into battles is immense.

Elves:
Spoiler:
 

Dwarves:
Spoiler:
 

Humans:

Cavalry:

I've added a small bit for goblins. And basically they're sneaky coniving little bastards who are really good at gaining power and influence.

OOC: So, map ideas peeps, throw em at me. So far ive got an idea for the independent humans of a sort of carthage style system of colonies that over time have become independent and trade with eachother a lot, and have occasional wars, in a Mediterranean sort of area, like a sheltered sea.

For the sake of it and because the geography is rarely used in fantasy, I'd like to see a not Mediterranean location, a big near landlocked ocean that separates one land[s] from another, a lot of port cities.

I'd probably say that you'd see alot of Orcs and Goblins in that area.

OOC: Okay so, bigass ocean. Lots of little islands.
Chances are that we'll be set mainly in that ocean or a carribean easque area.
Per Azroks ideas. The ocean will have a large no go zone in the center. This is basically the Bermuda Triangle. It'll have lots of islands and is the heart of both dark and light magic. It is known as the Shadow Zone. Due to the unnatural lighting within the area.

The elves should control lots of land. So maybe a europe style landmass with a Mediterranean portion
Human kingdoms can quite literally be everywhere. Seeing as humans won't be the dominant species have los of little blobs of independent land.

Dwarves. If it ain't human or elven give it to the dwarves. :p

Also how about a pseudo America. Having a 'new world' and colonies gives us lots of options regarding character growth and RAIDING! I mean trade

Aight so get this.
Three kinds of Dwarves.

Ones that are mainland, typically in big mountains etc, pretty much owning their mountains and fighting back invasions into them against humans, elves ect.

Island Dwarves, they like Volcanos! Polynesian inspirations! They loooove lava.

Desert/Jungle Dwarves.
Dwarves who have been driven from their mountains by [?] And have long settled above ground.
They build their own mountains out of rock, as a symbol to their old heritage.
Egyptian/Aztek themed.

OOC: So the Desert Dwarves ended up making a bunch of Pyramids! Each King wanted to make a bigger Pyramid, until one of them, the most cunning of his line made on the same 'size' as the original.

But.
That is only on the surface!
He made an even larger Pyramid! Underground.

We don't need the whole planet, I'm gonna set it in the Atlantic Ocean analogue. Giving us the old world (elf/dwarf dominated) and a new world (Elven, dorf colonies, with angry natives), and then everything else (human, Orc, and gribblies)

You know... I could make the thread now. And come up with a little 'independent port' as an introduction point. So privateers, 'independant tradesmen', rogues and the like can travel to freely.

Azrok also suggested something similar to the pirate republic from our own history. Where a band of wealthy captains have come together and carved their own territory in the islands

The Little People Of Hawaii

The Menehune, also known in ancient texts as Nawao, are the Hawaiian version of fairies or the leprechauns of Ireland. The Menehune are short in stature—about .6 meters (2 ft) tall—and dwell in lush forests away from civilization. They’re often portrayed as mischievous, but they also possess the supernatural ability to build or construct anything they desire within a day. Known as master builders, they were often hired by the native Hawaiians to build homes, temples, and heiaus ( places of worship). They are very shy people and prefer to work at night when no one is around. If they are caught in the act, they will drop what they’re doing and disappear, never to finish their work. And if you’re the person who interrupts them, you’ll be turned to stone.These little people were credited for building the largest aquaculture reservoir on the island, Alekoko Fishpond, on Lihue near the Nawiliwili Harbor. Some historians believe that the story of the mythical Menehune could be based on reality. The theory is that the Menehune were real people from Marquesas Island who migrated to the island of Hawaii before it was inhabited by the Tahitians. It is believed that the Tahitian immigrants forced the Menehune to retreat to the deeper part of the forest in an effort to survive.If you hear the sound of splashing near the beach or waterfall at night, its said to be from a Menehune. Apparently, one of their favorite past times, besides playing pranks on islanders, is diving.

Few more bits

LongHarbour: So named for the wide estuary that forms its harbour, more than ten miles long. Longharbour is the trading hub of the sheltered sea.

The twin cities of Neak and Janua: Neak and Janua were once fierce rivals, lying on either side of the choke, the narrow passage into the sheltered sea from the wider ocean. Neak was founded first, by human colonists, the first of the "Civilized races" to discover the new world. Janua was an attempt by the elven aristocracy to rival the human claim to the new world, however, after decades of neglect and taxation, Janua rebelled, and declared independence, and shortly afterwards, its twinship with Neak was forged.

Wow this is firing up faster then I thought I wasn't too confident that it would be this active when I came up with the idea thanks Matt and everyone for taking an interest and going the next level

But yeah arkais the richest man in the world is a goblin

And I want some land areas to be different to have magical attributes like when you get closer to the corrupted zone the land will be blackish with twisted trees with illuminated leaves like broken glass shards glowing in the moonlight and floating glowing gems and diamonds glowing with the souls of those consumed by the darkness that eats the world with an unending vortex in the dark part of the ocean .

Oh yeah air ships are a thing but extremely rare. There's only 4 or 5 in the world

Let me know your thoughts on it add or remove what you think fits or doesn't fit

So where do you want this corrupted zone? Down towards that lone mountain in the sea sorta area? I can expand the map alongways to make room. Im thinking that big continent "The new world" as its placehold name, is gonna be sorta africa size. Fukheug.

Naval Cannons by race:

Elves: Elves use magical cannons as the main armament on their warships. The Gunnery crew concentrate on channeling power into the breach so that it can be concentrated in the weapon before firing.

These weapons are expensive, but arguably the single most powerful weapon at sea. A mage no matter how weak, can channel his power into it and match a human cannon for destructive potential with ease.

Humans: They use historical cannons.

Dwarves: Dwarves use high calibre breach loaded Carronades.
