Reviving an Old Meme: Worldbuilding Wednesday

Self-reblogging isn’t a thing. Blast.

This is a thing that I came up with a year and a half ago; it was fun, so I want to try it again You feed me random words, I try to make a coherent setting out of it. Have at ye!

The rules: I’ll make a form for you to fill out and put in my Ask. In each field, enter a word or phrase, and my task is to take that word or phrase and spin it into a paragraph about the world in question. The field:

The Genre:
The Science:
The Wonder:
The Big:
The Small:
The Good:
The Bad:
The Twist:

And definitions:
The Genre: (Fairly obvious)
The Science: (A word related to how science—or magic—work in the setting, and what level of tech/magic use we’re talking about here, since even space opera can be made to work with medieval technology)
The Wonder: (A word relating to some spectacular, stand-out feature of the setting)
The Big: (A word related to a major plot point that everyone would know about)
The Small: (A word related to a minor setting detail that adds fluff to the world)
The Good: (A word related to what the protagonists look like)
The Bad: (A word related to what the antagonists look like)
The Twist: (A word related to how things in the setting aren’t what they seem—the crux on which the assumed conflict in a story set here would turn)
