Archaic Xhodocto Edit
Mind if I let in the Archaic Xhodocto? They're the Xhodocto from their first 20,000 - 30,000 years of existence. Their power is comparable to the technology requirements. I could also change their appearance to hide their true being. Also, they could be a third party and a supporting character, who believes that the Source can be bent to their will.

- For future reference, this question has been discussed on IRC. Ghelae - (talk) 20:25, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Could I Join?Edit
- Yes, I guess you can join. Also, worship of the Source doesn't have to be the only religion on Koldenwelt - there can be other Spore religions such as the worship of Spode or the God That Will Come, and even the "Crazy Slaughter Cult" (who presumably wouldn't call themselves that anyway), and there can be other polytheistic or monolatristic religions too. Ghelae - (talk) 22:41, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
Can I create a primitive version of the Nobi for this world? And does the energy used have to be magic or can it be, say, Chakra (strait from Naruto) or something similar? Oh, and can I even join? Hi, it's me MasterMachine Commune with me, if you dare Be a friend, save a life. 23:02, January 30, 2011 (UTC)
- You can create something like - or even identical to - tribal-era Nobi, but they won't be the same Nobi as in the main SporeWikiverse, since the two universes are essentially two different realities.
- All magic is ultimately the same power. Different races will have come up with different ways (rituals, etc) to access it, but it's all the same Source.
- Yes, of course you can join, but I'd recommend only joining if you're going to be dedicated to the fiction. Ghelae - (talk) 17:00, January 31, 2011 (UTC)
I might join this. Edit
Hmm.... I may make a new version of the Solarians for this, and have them be a sort of reclusive society of magic-users who live in a mountain citadel that can only be reached by flying.
- Yes, you can do if you want to. Also, remember to sign your posts in future, Spriggs. :P Ghelae - (talk) 17:00, January 31, 2011 (UTC)
Going to join Guys Edit
I want to join the Fantasy Universe, with some random Fiction.
So anyways, they're going to be a cult of weirdos in robes, not like the essence cult by Imperios in the Sci-Fi Universe or Maxi6's idea, I'm going to add something different.
But anyways, I need a few more ideas, like what place in Koldenwelt do they come from? And what else?
- Crazy Slaughter Cult? :P They're in Spore (well, they're mentioned occasionally as being the target of Shaman-given Eradication missions), and we're trying to keep this fantasyverse at least loosely connected to the game. The War of the Eye needs (needed? will have needed?) somebody in the Western Forests to prevent the Shiarchon from easily taking the Eye from its lake, so perhaps the cult should be active there. You'll probably want to change the name, though. Ghelae - (talk) 14:31, February 4, 2011 (UTC)
They are not a crazy slaughter cult, more like an Inglip-esque Cult of weirdos, so anyways, any other ideas?
- Well, they wouldn't be focused entirely on slaughter, because that would really make them all one-dimensional characters, but if (they believed that) (their version of) Inglip once gave them orders to kill some people, then they could very well have ended up being stereotyped as a death cult. Anyway, as I said, the Western Forests might be a good place for them to be active. And what other ideas do you want? Ghelae - (talk) 08:17, February 5, 2011 (UTC)
Well, like Inglip and His Gropagas, they are given Unusual Orders, Commands and stuff like that, but they do not entirely go around and cause carnage, although they are often given orders to conquer some place, sometimes not, and also, yes, they would be in the Western Forests.
- Yes, of course. What sort of race/character are you planning to join with? Ghelae - (talk) 17:14, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- I'm making a city-state on the west of the planet, based on Sparta's war philosophy. The name is yet to be seen. Val (Mind Heist) 17:28, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Despite my writer's block, I'd like to join in with this. My idea is a dystopian city (yeah, like Ottzello) in a secluded area. They used to be a large, powerful empire, but their enemies destroyed most of them, which explains their current dystopian state. Using The Source they had advanced technology, but it was mostly developed for weapons rather than space travel. In a city filled with crime, heroes are rare and hope seems lost.-- Technobliterator TC 18:52, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- Yeah, there wouldn't be space travel anyway. The most advanced technology anywhere on Koldenwelt are steam engines and basic firearms. If you want something different... I don't know. Some form of repeating crossbow? I don't know exactly what you're thinking. As for where the city is located, the Eastern Plains have plenty of desert regions that will probably be otherwise uninhabited and unvisited, and the climate would also add to the dystopian nature of the city. Ghelae - (talk) 21:38, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- I was thinking more like, not steam energy, technology based on The Source that works in an electric-ish way BUT... I do understand there. And yeah that looks like a good place. it'd also add to the history of the deserts as well; they could have been rich once til the wars. With the seclusion done it'd explain why they are slightly behind. I'm in a similar situation to cesar in the amount that I am active I think (not as often as others).-- Technobliterator TC 21:44, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
Ok, im completely confused... where is everyone located, and where can I put my tribal-era Nobi? I was thinking some kind of mountain territories, like a highlands. Any ideas? Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 18:53, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- There can be highlands in the Eastern Plains (like how Ar-Klith is a group of volcanoes) or in the Western Forests, or even somewhere in the south-eastern Tropical Lands. So, anywhere, really. Although, if there are too many highlands in the Eastern Plains, then they won't really be plains anymore. Ghelae - (talk) 21:38, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
- Cool, thanks! Now I just need to get better at juggling wiki's :) Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 22:21, February 7, 2011 (UTC)
I did My part Edit
So I made a part in the War for the Eye, and I might make My page about the "Cult of Pilgni" soon, so what does anyone think? If it needs improvement, tell Me, and also, it was supposed to be a conversation before and just after the part written by Ghelae about the "Skirmishes in the Western Forest", so what does anyone think or something?
- Well, the page is supposed to be an article describing the war (like Wikipedia articles on wars), not a story, so I'm not sure if a conversation would really be appropriate for it. If the conversation stays, it should be written properly, and not as a script. Also, the section could easily be moved next to "Skirmishes in the Western Forests", so that really isn't a problem. If you want, I'll try to make the section more suitable for the article, and I'll try to keep the conversation in the process. I might not succeed in keeping all of it, though, and instead I might just keep the important bits of information, like the messages from Pilgni. Ghelae - (talk) 16:25, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, You may fix it, but can You give Me some advice on War articles? Please?
Ok, so how are we organizing this? Like, are there going to be pages for individual histories of each species, or just one big page for all he history of Koldenwelt? And also, where the Nobi fit in to this history?Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 18:50, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
- So far, we've been making individual pages for species or regions, and writing their histories there. For the Nobi, they're probably just one of hundreds of races that appeared in the past ~10,000 years. They might have participated in the War for the Eye, but that's your choice. Ghelae - (talk) 18:57, February 8, 2011 (UTC)
Is it ok if i added the Nobi in the War of the Eye? Just a small part telling of how they fled from a disease spread to them by the Legion of Shiarcho. As a little detail in the war, nothing major.Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 02:19, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Well, you've already added it now. :P Yeah, that should be fine, although they should have probably lived to the south or west of Ar-Klith, since that's roughly the direction that the Legion of Shiarchon marched (and although they might have taken a slightly different direction while leaving, they wouldn't have gone directly north. Would you like me to make a few changes to it? Ghelae - (talk) 16:06, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Sure, since I'm still not to good with directions and stuff... Thanks!Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 16:30, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
- Okay, I've done that. Also, on your changes to the Koldenwelt page, are the Nobi marching to war against the Shiarchon, or against someone else? If it's just against the Shiarchon, so is everybody else, so it probably shouldn't be added there until we properly start the fiction after the War for the Eye. If not, though, of course it's fine. Ghelae - (talk) 16:55, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
- The Nobi are marching to war against everyone, they have no single enemy in this war. They do intend to take back their old homeland and purge it of the Vyre, though, so whoever currently lives there is going get attacked. They never even heard of the "War for the Eye", they just got hit by a sideblast. Ha, they never even knew the Shiarchon were responsible for the Vyre, so they have no enemies or allies yet, but do intend to take over everything from the Highlands to their old homeland. So yea, they have more then one enemy. BTW, just read what you put there. Thats what I was aiming for, but I always mess up directions and miss the tiny details (like how the Vyre got to the Nobi). Thanks for fixing it! Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 17:31, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
There is now an userbox:
Hey, 9988, besides that userbox being a great addition, do you think you could make a map like the one in front of your sig for the world of Koldenwelt? Now that would be an epic thing to add, a map of the planet as seen by the creatures that live there. It's a great map, BTW. Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 19:17, February 9, 2011 (UTC)
Split? And an update on my fictionEdit
Ok guys, I have two matters of business to discuss. First is an issue that I bet we all expected to come up at some point or other: Should we create a separate wiki for this project? Now, I am not saying that I support or oppose such an idea. I think it's a viable option, and I'm just putting it out there.
Second, I apologize for my new fiction not being up yet, but I'm a busy person and can only really do wiki stuff on weekends. However, I have decided that my race, the Veritors or Veritorians (they can be called either), will be zealous followers of the God That Will Come. I have thought of two main characters, a pyromancer who will serve as a military leader and a dark, mysterious necromancer. I'm also thinking about exploring another side of these characters, a side in which we see that they are not completely evil. It may turn out similar to Vektrix, my main character from Spore Create! Wiki, who is basically a bloodthirsty war criminal who we still see a good side of. I may even turn down the zealousness a bit and make them sort of get long with other races, it all depends.
- Split: No, its not there yet. Your fiction: I think it's a good idea! Koldenwelt needs more zealots, especially friendly ones. Mastermachine Be a friend, save a life. 13:21, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
- No split. Never. As long as the scifiverse stays on this wiki, so should the fantasyverse. There's no real reason to favour one over the other. For your fiction: Yes, it's best not to make them pure evil, since that's just not creative. Ghelae - (talk) 16:03, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
My fic. Edit
I haven't got a name for them just yet, but basically they're forest spirits. Not like ghosts walking around trees and that sort of thing, I mean that they are organisms that are (possibly) part animal part plant, and either way have a connection to nature in general. They'll be similar to the Navi in that they live primarily in one big tree, but that tree is also their God, and they see themselves as protectors of nature.
In terms of alignment, they're neither good nor evil, as their quest to protect their forest home supercedes anything as trite as 'morality.'
As for whose side they're on, they will fight anyone who threatens their forests.
Lastly, their abilities. Their close spiritual ties with nature allow them to influence the way plants grow, and rapidly (they could force a tree root to grow out of the ground into baracades, for example), and they can also dominate and control lesser animals, but only to do things they already do.
- That idea sounds fine so far. They should probably live somewhere in the Tropical Lands, or the Western Forests might start to become crowded. :P That's your choice though, of course. Perhaps their gigantic hometree could be the "tree of life" from which Arbor Vitae got her name?
- The only issue I can think of is that I'm not sure about some of their abilities, mainly the super-fast plant growth (mind-control of animals is already part of the fantasyverse, if only because it exists in Spore), although ultimately anything should be possible with the Source. Ghelae - (talk) 14:43, February 11, 2011 (UTC)
It may end up being something more like bending the trees or similar, I got the idea from Tamriel's Bosmer, who can do that sort of thing (bending trees and all) thanks to their god's patronage. Also, they wouldn't 'own' much of the forest they live in, only the immediate area around their tree, but they would obviously be able to move freely throughout the forest, so they could still live in the Western Forests without cramping it up too much.
Here's an idea I just had: What if the tree grew inside the crater of an extinct volcano, and could only be accessed via the lava tubes? It would probably have some fancy enchantment so that you couldn't see it from outside, so people wouldn't know where it is. That's just an idea, though, to add a bit of mystery to them. Anyway, must get a name. Will work on it now. -This message by Spriggs077, a.k.a. Awesome Faic! 11:08, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
They'll probably be centred in the northern end of the forest, in tying with the idea above, could a mountain range border the forest on the northern end? -This message by Spriggs077, a.k.a. Awesome Faic! 11:53, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
- Well, Western Forests or Tropical Lands, it's your choice.
- That could work. You don't need a particularly fancy enchantment, though, some fog would do, or the volcano could just be big enough to hide the tree on its own.
- A few mountains between the Western Forests and the Northern Region might explain why the Urindalë seem to have more connections to the Eastern Plains than to the Forests, besides the presence of thick boreal forest. Otherwise, though, if you want a mountain range and trees, you'd have to go for the Tropical Lands, probably but not necessarily towards the far east (mountains along the east are the source for many rivers that cross the continent towards the oceans on the west and south). Otherwise, the Western Forests will be crowded by highlands, in which case there probably won't be much forest any more. Ghelae - (talk) 16:50, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
From what I've read, the forest mainly has inhabitants to the south and in the centre, with a few pockets of people throughout. So, a small northern community wouldn't really make that much of an impact in terms of fitting people in. Unless the Tropical Lands have a very dense rain forest or something, I really don't think they fit in there, so the Western Forest is the first natural conclusion. -This message by Spriggs077, a.k.a. Awesome Faic! 20:47, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
- Some parts of the Tropical Lands are dense rainforest, yes. However, I easily managed to add some mountains in the far north of the Western Forests in my prototype Koldenwelt map, so yes, there's plenty of room for them to live there. Ghelae - (talk) 21:07, February 14, 2011 (UTC)
Okay.My place shall be Rodrom(Mordor backwards,cuz im a Lotr fan),and my species shall be the Ouarcan,a race of Weird beings recently released from their prison at Pulcket's Gate.They are insane black mages,and use mana as power.Rodrom is in the charred battlegrounds from the chaos war.At the end of that war they were sealed in Pulcket's Gate. Laxiz 14:57, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
- Well, we already have an evil pseudo-demonic antagonist race, and we're not trying to introduce other planes of existence yet... so you might want to work on that idea. Ghelae - (talk) 19:40, June 26, 2011 (UTC)
- You should also have made a seperate comment for your updated idea, instead of just editing the original one. Anyway, the updated idea is a bit better. Ghelae - (talk) 16:46, June 27, 2011 (UTC)
Zillafire's joining. Edit
I would like to join.here is my submission, Trofandalorians,Their Warrior-Mercanary who fight for the highest bidder,Sort of a fantasy version of Ugandalorians ready and able.Please get back to me.
Location, Location, LocationEdit
Hey, y'all. I was thinking of joining, with a race that's basically scattered tribes of Epic creatures. But I was wondering, are the locations here like the fiction verse galaxies? Do they have creators I need to ask to put my stuff there?Avillan (talk) 06:44, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
- Not rreally, no, unless they're already entirely claimed by a single fiction (which is rare, e.g. Eierland, Marmor). The big ones - Western Forests, Tropical Lands, etc - are definitely free for everyone to use. Ghelae - (talk) 07:10, September 3, 2013 (UTC)
- As far back as I can recall, you'll need to discuss with the administrators of the Fantasyverse (Xho and Imperios as far as I know) regarding godlike beings, although I'd generally advise staying away from that sorta area regarding Fantasyverse fiction TheHachi (talk 02:45, September 30, 2013 (UTC)
I have a idea for the fantasyverse, and its Fantasyverse Drodo. Pretty much, they'd occupy a small sector of territory and be divided into different nations and clans. However, the most powerful of them all would be a coastal city-state, which is, while small, fairly advanced (around perhaps renaissance-era tech) and very wealthy through trade. Imagine something like Venice. There would be other Drodo factions as well, all of which at varying levels of technological advancment and prosperity. Perhaps others could take control/co-own other Drodo nations if they wish. So! What do you think of the idea? Please put your comments/recommendations below.
- Users are encouraged to stick to the geography of the known world when creating fictions. Don't worry though, there's plenty of space. --Monet47 - "Immortality is an elusive thing" 10:16, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
How do I join? Edit
I already have my character ( which is Creature:Zerikumm, you can check it out if you want) for it, and I added the userbox thing to my profile, so what now? Do I just edit the page or should I ask someone to do it for me?
(I am planning to settle my characters somewhere like a forest with flatlands near it.)
- If your race fits in the setting and doesn't conflict with anything (and as far as I can see from your page, it doesn't), you can already consider yourself a member of the setting. OluapPlayer 10:21, February 4, 2015 (UTC)
So I made up my mind on a specific part of Koldenwelt, and it's The Archipelago in the Tropical Lands. Do I just edit the page to put my Zerikumm in it?
- The Archipelago belongs to Ghelæ, so if you want to settle there, you need his permission. OluapPlayer 10:11, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
- They could fit into the Archipelago; editing the page to say that some more of the islands there are inhabited shouldn't be a problem (and don't worry, I'll deal with that). We could also discuss this further. For example, one ruined structure in the Archipelago that I mentioned in a story is called the "Dragon's Temple". Perhaps it was built by the Zerikumm, either from the time before the clans seperated or from after they were reunited? Ghelae - (talk) 10:25, February 6, 2015 (UTC)
The idea about the temple is nice. Perhaps the Zerikumm built the "Dragon's Temple" to thank Keheldron and his dragons for reuniting them? (just an idea, you can change it)
- Okay, I've updated the Archipelago page now. You should write a bit about the Zerikumm on the Tropical Lands page. I think they count as Kelodhres, which don't have their own section on the Tropical Lands page (due to there not being any Kelodhros races there), so I'd recommend putting them in the "Others" section unless you think they're better classed as Theriocephali of some sort.
