    Story inspired by "the book of Esther"

    I've got the idea for a story loosely by "the book of Esther" from the Hebrew bible; they share some similar story beats and parallels, but it's meant to be my own story. The story takes place in 16-or 17th century Sweden and follows a huldra who has been captured and enslaved by a landed...

    Is this a good starting point for my world? Does it sound too cliché?

    Emperor Tiberon rules from the Primary Kingdom. He has rulership over all of the kingdoms and subkingdoms on the continent of Etrya. The royal kingdoms are divided into several subkingdoms, each with its own ruler or governing body. These subkingdoms have their own unique customs, traditions...

    Would writing a landscape made from a dead giant be ripping off The Owl House?

    The concept of locations/landscapes created from the body of an enormous creature is nothing new; Ymir in Norse mythology and Pan Gu from Chinese mythology are both creation myths where the world is created from the body of a dead giant. However, currently the Disney cartoon The Owl House is...

    Something I always wanted to do

    I always wanted to write stories when I was young. Brimming with fantasies, but they faded a bit when I started going to school. I finished my studies not long ago and was looking back on what I always wanted to do. So I started with a little story I had in mind it's not much but I would love...

    Suggestions on unfinished magical system involving music

    So I have a little problem about my magic system. It's actually my first time doing something like that but in summary: I was thinking of creating a system of magic in which sound (and music) was the greatest driving force and was so powerful that all organic and inorganic matter depended on it...

    Question for Arab writers!

    Hi! My question is: is it okay if I give my Oc an Arabic name even if they're not Arab? Her dad is not from Earth (my story is a fanasy one that takes place in Earth) and her mom is a phoenix (of course she has a human form) who is from Earth, but she as a individual has no human ethnicity, you...

    Questions about fantasy weapons and weapon design

    Man its been awhile since I’ve posted anything on this website. This one’s gonna be a little different though. Rather than asking a single question in relation to a single underlying story/world building problem, this one’s gonna be broken down into a list of different questions all about a...

    The Man in Mauve has arrived

    My username is ManInMauve, as in a man in mauve. I've been dubbed as Manny, and Muuv. So, Manny or Muuv are acceptable (and loved) nicknames. You can also call me, Niall. (Yes, like the singer.) I'm an old fart. A crotchety old fart, but I still love to have fun even when I'm grumpy. (Sort of...

    Non-human characters with black skin

    Hi all! I'm looking for some input on a fantasy novel I'm writing. A large majority of the story is told through the perspectives of a non-human species that has purely black skin. They have humanoid features (limbs and facial shapes) as well as another feature distinct to their species, and...

    What Kind of Armour is This?

    So recently, I’ve been playing some Smash Bros Ultimate with my friends and something I’ve just found out about one of my most played characters, Ganondorf, is that he’s wearing a piece of armor that I can’t seem to find anywhere on the internet...

    Copycat or Tropes?

    There are so many wonderful fantasy things out there that I adore the thought of, but I'm concerned with some of it being copyrighted. Example: I love the show Grimm and find it inspiring with some of the creatures, and while I know Grimm's tales are not copyrighted to the show - I'm fairly...

    Walls And Fantasy Armies

    Having been thinking on one of my past fantasy worlds, in which there are armies that can scale walls with calvary units. True, the world itself has mounted defenses as it is, usually by growing thorny vines along the walls. With thorns about five inches long at that, along with spiked defenses...

    Hello my name is Agazile, This is my first post so forgive me if it's a bit long or lack luster... I wouldn't describe myself as a writer and I still don't, at least not a traditional writer but a few years ago out of nowhere I decided to go on google docs and start writing and developing...

    Fantasy Mystery concept.

    I love gritty fantasy and I'm a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes... can something like this exist? I feel like I could go either way. A Mystery with a hint of fantasy or a Fantasy with a mystery aspect. I'd like to know anyone's thoughts. I also agreed with a post I read here yesterday, there are way...
