7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding

7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding | "Chasing Cyborgs" -Digital Trends, Tools, Usability & Story-telling Secrets | Scoop.it

Via The Digital Rocking Chair
Juliana Loh's insight:

Having worked on an even smaller RPG project, I've had to build out and consider all aspects of our world both visually and wrt narrative. Responding to situations required designing the society mindset. Without that mindset, we wouldn't have known how to visually represent our world economically, socially aesthetically and politically.

Charlie Jane Anders:  "Worldbuilding is an essential part of any work of fiction. But especially for science fiction or fantasy, it's the lifeblood of storytelling. But when worldbuilding fails, it can wreck your whole story, and leave your characters feeling pointless. Here are seven deadly sins of worldbuilding" ...

Really helpful checklist for the novelist (or screenwriter or playwright). 

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, August 4, 2013 3:21 AM
1. Not thinking about basic infrastructure.

How do they eat? What do they eat? Who takes away the garbage? Who deals with their bodily wastes? How do they get around? What do the majority of people do to survive? You're not just constructing a society, you're creating an economy. People don't oppress each other for fun — usually, systems of hierarchy and oppression have an economic component to them. Maybe you need a lot of peasants to grow labor-intensive crops, or maybe you need lots of cannon fodder in your space war. Maybe your only source of protein is a weird fungus that needs to be tended by specially trained people. Maybe everybody's eating algae. In any case, there's nothing worse than a fictional world where there are elaborate social structures, which seem completely separated from the realities of food, shelter and clothing.

Lucy O'Brien:  "The writers behind The Last of Us, Gone Home, Tomb Raider and The Stanley Parable give us their thoughts on where storytelling in video games is headed next."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, January 13, 3:05 AM

There is an old but still pertinent argument that storytelling in video games is the last great bastion for the medium to conquer. That game developers working in the 'mainstream space' have traditionally struggled to utilise video games as a storytelling medium, struggled to harmonise play and Hollywood-like narratives, and struggled to inject real meaning into their games without rendering the player a frustrated passive participant.

Royal baby betting exceeds £1 million

Royal baby betting exceeds £1 million | "Chasing Cyborgs" -Digital Trends, Tools, Usability & Story-telling Secrets | Scoop.it
Bookmakers across the U.K. are still cashing in on the gambling frenzy that's been sparked by the birth of the royal baby.
Juliana Loh's insight:

We are 'gamers' no matter what. So it comes with no surprise that the 'experience' of Kate and William's birth of their new son invited the perfect opportunity for the world to partake in an age-old ritual - *gambling*.

 

How does this fit into story-telling? Betting raises the stakes, the interest in the actual climax which of course came last night to the cries of "It's a boy"! To many, the announcement arrived with a simple celebratory 'hooray', but to a whole lot of dealers & betters.. it was truly a moment to be shared *globally*. Afterall, you couldn't really go wrong with 50/50 odds!

 

Does 'gaming' bring us together ... you bet!!! Next 'game' up? Baby names of course! :D
