Hello everyone. Last night I was trying to think of a cool world to build. Bethany Emuna Mimetes wrote about a world all about music. This inspired me a lot. I wanted a world all about color, but I just couldn’t wrap my mind around that. So I decided to make a world all about art. My world is called Artesa. It’s going to have 3 kingdoms that are each centered around different forms of art. The first kingdom is all about color and what I like to call physical art. This means painting, drawing, sculpting, and other things people usually refer to as art. I’m calling it Cosmita. The second kingdom focuses on music and dancing. There’s always singing and dancing going on there. The cool thing is that when you dance, it makes music, like when you step on a platform and it makes a quick noise. So the people there put the dance moves together just like the notes of a song. This kingdom is called Trescuma. The third kingdom revolves around literature. That includes stories, novels, poems, books, and writing things. The kingdom is called Welita. This is just an idea I’ve elaborated on. So let me know what you think about it.

Very neat idea, Fluffy! I love it.

Do they all speak the same, or different languages?

I really like the names that you've picked. :)

So is the dancing something that they are born with, or do they have to learn? And do different dances make different types of music, or is the music always the same type?

Cool idea. Does the art give the people special powers? And if so, does the art of each kingdom only give its power inside of that kingdom?

I love the comments and questions. They all speak the same language, but the music people have a certain dance they do when they want to talk secretly. The dancing is more of a skill they develop, but it's their choice of whether to use it or not. And each dance step makes a different sound.It's like composing a song. No super powers, just skills that come with the art.

This sounds really cool! So have you thought up a explanation for how each kingdom came to be centered on these arts? In Trescuma, why is it that dancing makes music? Is it part of the magic or "cobha" of that part of the world? Does each kingdom have a little of each art, or do they despise the arts on which they don't focus?

Um, I think the legend of how the kingdoms came to be will go like something like this:
Artesa began with 1 family from another world. This other world was destroyed long after Artesa began.They traveled because no one at the other world, which was about to die of under-population, appreciated or tolerated the families' art. So their the dad, Gartep, moved his family on to a place to start a new life. Unfortunately, to have this new life, they had to create a whole new world. So Gartep convinced his family to help him create this new world. Gartep had the ingenious idea of covering the world with art as its foundation. He knew this would be no small task, though. So Gartep decided to split up the work. He would do one part of the world, his wife, Casdara, would do another part, and his noble son, Remox, would do the last part of the world. Gartep's plan worked, but Gartep hadn't planed the outcome of what happened. He made his part of the world, Cosmita, out of what he made his usual artwork, colors and "physical art." However, Casdara's favored music more and formed her portion of the world, Trescuma, out of music and dancing. Remox was much more sophisticated, though. He formed his share of the world, Welita, purely on literature. When Gartep saw the results, he had no idea what to do. That's when Casdara took charge. She decided that each world would be a kingdom. That's when Artesa, Cosmita, Trescuma, and Welita got their names and took off. As the family continued to shape Artesa, it was bright enough to attract enough people to eventually obtain a substantial population. Casdara and Remox were able to handle crowd control as to the point that as Casdara, Remox, and Gartep too, passed, their laws and way of life stuck.


I will definitely think next time before I do this again. Oh well, it's fun. And be forewarned, the story will be formed on what answers I use to answer questions and my creativity.

So are there contests/debates between the countries about which art form is the highest? Do they get along well, or are they rather quarrelsome about their art forms?

Oh no, the kingdoms get along great. There is, however, a market day where all the kingdoms get together and trade stuff. It's like a farmer's market.

I love this idea, Fluffy! (: An interesting plot problem would be a group of people or even an individual who simply doesn't appreciate the art of the kingdom he was born into. Maybe he doesn't like art at all, and thus tries to build a fourth grey kingdom to oppose the other three.

I dunno, there's conflict in every world, so you can either take or leave my suggestion. (: Great work so far!

I'm not sure if I want there to be conflict in my story. I mean, I remembering reading a Winnie the Pooh book series and it had no antagonist :book: It inspired me. I think I'm just gonna write little stories on certain adventures that happen in my world.

Hmm...interesting! But how can you have an adventure if there's no conflict?

Definitely interested in reading whatever you come up with, though. :D

Have you seen Bolt? Well, in that movie, there's no real bad guy. Yes, there's an actor, but he's not really evil. That whole movie was about Bolt getting home. It did pretty good. So did Happy Feet, I think. I can put small conflict in there, like a misunderstanding or something like that, but I don't want there to be a bad guy. I don't think I could bear to ruin the peacefulness I imagine in my world. So as long as there isn't a bad guy in my......whatever it's going to be, I don't really care if there's conflict.

I haven't seen the movie Bolt, but from what I've heard, I know that there is conflict in that story.

Your story doesn't have to have a bad guy (commonly referred to as an antagonist), but if it doesn't have an antagonist, the story has to have an antagonistic force. An antagonistic force is an inanimate object that takes the place of the bad guy -- it's what gives the hero the problems he has to overcome. In Bolt, the antagonistic force was "the real world". The world is what added conflict by trying to hinder Bolt from finding his way back home. (Anyone who has seen the movie feel free to correct me.)

(Incidentally, if anyone's actually seen a story without any conflict I'd be interested in hearing about it. XD)

This sounds awesome, Twin. :D I look forward to seeing how many stories you can come up with in this bad-guy-free world.
Are you going to write short stories set in it, or do you have an idea for a novel? :D
