    okay @ the anon who asked about 10000 years ago about

    The Nerd Document (tm)

    tumblr is a garbage site and just ATE my fairly sizeable reply i've had waiting in the wings for a month or so


    this is shorter than the original version apologies lol


    ive actually forgotten the original context for your asking but this is the big fella itself and i've probably had some form of it since i first started playing BotW

    i like a fantasy dipped in history but i also like streamlined design. it makes me a nightmare DM for myself, but it makes me appreciate Nintendo's decision to have NO entirely useless NPCs in BotW and keep especially inhabited places concise but fleshed out, as opposed to populating a fully sized city with clone zombie models you cant interact with at all [knowing look]

    i believe its a given understanding that in reality while Hyrule was decimated and beyond during the Calamity and years after, it isnt actually as sparse as it looks to be, especially given the would-be functional populations for the other races'. additionally to have people do specialised work they need to be fed by OTHER people. subsistence farmers will of course have their own material culture but people with more time on their hands will use that time to do things other than survive. this also correlates to time = value because someone else has to feed the person giving their time but thats another kettle of fish for bartering with ... then there's the likelihood of demand for whatever work is offered by the non-farming person, and at what LEVEL that demand reaches. unless to a certain degree there's a lot of people who can choose to not make their own bread, there wont be bakers. generally speaking there's probably gonna be more weavers than carpenters and more carpenters than chandlers.

    thats demographics baybeeeeee

    so what else am i going to use my hoard of coursework adjacent knowledge for if im NOT employed in archaeology at the present other than tip it into a blender with Breath of the Wild lol7

    this might sound sexy at first but

    like really

    the most

    if its too small to read or too maths for you to bother, tldr; those sheets there have industry listings guaranteed to exist Post-Calamity, canonical means of food production, notes on crop yields and livestock practices under ideal conditions (yarhar farm wisdom im a stealth bumpkin), the actual calculable size of Hyrule (if im not a dumbdumb its about the size of Belgium), calorific intake in grain for the average post-subsistence individual, unstated but certainly canon crops like flax, and a count i did on my mapping survey of all the animals & NPCs physically in Hyrule. Yeah. im so cool.

    there's also a few sheets noting inhabited spaces pre-calamity but i may correlate that with how Age of Calamity went if its to be believed, which i believe in part at least setting-wise it IS to some degree realistic to its source, but moving on

    for the most part i did it as a brain warm up and practice, but i have drawn several expanded worldbuilding pieces based on it so far, theyre just mostly not finished and/or uploaded yet lmao

    the closest i have done is a 3 stage expansion map of Castle Town where i knuckled down and "surveyed" the topography of the ruins like i was doing a building platform survey in the real world using those pithy pre-Calamity cutscenes from BotW main as context .... the final like-to-like map is actually disturbingly similar to what we got in Age of Calamity but i'll need to dig it out to see for sure ... plus a couple versions where Castle Town is Bigger. I've not decided on whether to do a final version where the calculated kilometre-to-map version is taken as true or whether its as it is in a larger field yet.

    and then there's the other result of the mapping survey which is where the info for colour and trees and some ruins comes from for the megamap project i've been staring down for a year now (its not abandoned life just happened) but thats a whole other kettle of fish

    do you ,, do you see why i love BotWs Zelda so hard now

    do you see



    i'll stop now but basically: maths, art i havent posted, dirt nerd

    [blows kiss]

    #SORRY this is the SHORTENED VERSION and its still wildly out of control #i am ... deeply invested in pointless shit like this #the zonai videos floating about zeldatube make me want to be able to make videos so i can contribute to the discussion with mock survey wor #@ new followers welcome to the jungle are you happy with your choices yet #also if anyones interested i can post a few snaps of the survey maps so you can see how much of a feral goblin i am #sorry as well i still have NOOOO idea how tumblr managed to swallow a whole saved draft but its tumblr ssso #rory's ramblings#worldbuilding#botw blogging#asks#anon#long post

    I had a dream where I was in the supermarket and there was a trashy news article and it said on the cover ‘your favorite celebrities do what?!?—Hollywood therapist says all!” And I flipped to the page and it just had a statement that said “I refuse to have a statement due to the fact it goes against patient privilege and I don’t want my license revoked” and then like two seconds later I got punched by a duck with really buff arms

    Three weeks ago I had never watched a kdrama. Now, I am caught up on Doom at Your Service, have finished Strong Woman Do Bong Soon and The Smile Has Left Your Eyes, and have started Vincenzo and Goblin.

    So what I'm saying is all I know is pain, I'm never getting work done again, and also if anyone has recommendations please let me know because I can't believe I just now discovered how amazing kdramas are.

    mighty nein dæmon au, because why not?

    (a dæmon is an animal manifestation of an individual's soul, from the His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman, so these are what each of the nein's dæmons would be)

    caleb - frumpkin (f, settles as an orange bengal cat)

    essek - abbil (f, settles as a white rabbit)

    jester - sprinkle (m, settles as a crimson weasel)

    fjord - mira (f, settles as a sooty tern)

    beau - prof. thaddeus (m, settles as an owl)

    yasha - thorn (m, settles as a ginger dachshund)

    veth - nott (m, settles as a magpie)

    molly - king (gnc, settles as a peacock)

    caduceus - ciara ("kira") (f, settles as a snowy lynx)

    #'abbil' is the undercommon word for 'friend' #'mira' means 'sea' in latin #yes yasha gets a dachshund bc of COURSE #molly gets a gnc peacock bc he IS a gnc peacock #and veth's is a nod to her goblin self #i love these all so much #i just woke up with this idea and lo and behold #critical role #the mighty nein #caleb widogast#yasha nydoorin#beauregard lionett#jester lavorre#caduceus clay#veth brenatto#essek theylss#fjord#mollymauk tealeaf

    ATTENTION BOOK TUMBLR! have you heard about this book!!! from the author’s description:

    A Taste of Gold and Iron was a gloriously self-indulgent experience to write it, and I hope it will be just as gloriously chocolate-cake indulgent for you to read it as well. How do you feel about people looking deeply, meaningfully into each other’s eyes as they make oaths of fealty? Do you like exquisitely beautiful princes? Do you like stoic bodyguards with shoulders like a hero of legend? Are you wondering how many times and in how many different contexts I can make the bodyguard kneel? How would you like to see them wash each other’s hair in a bathhouse while they talk seriously about whether monarchy can be ethical and, if so, how? And then would you like to watch me make them kiss?
    That’s! This! Book!
    It’s about queer found-families, and caring for the people around you, and the rocky process of building a friendship with an ex-lover while navigating feelings about the new person in your life, and dealing with chronic anxiety, and how uncomfortable and terrifying power can be.

    yesss i wish to read it my precious... most unfortunately it comes out next year (2022).


    #everyone must hear the good word about This Book #if I have to suffer waiting  A WHOLE YEAR #so should all of you! #they compare it to The Goblin Emperor (!!) #court intrigue! #money forging conspiracies!! #COLDLY HANDSOME BODYGUARDS!!! #EEEEE! #(muffled screaming) #a taste of gold and iron #alexandra rowland

    i was thinking of redesigning merida and rapunzel’s dresses, bc im not too fond of how they look and i think i could make something up

    also i wish rapunzel’s dresses were more elegant (DONT WORRY I STILL APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT WENT INTO DESIGNING THEM) cos i feel like there’s something that can be added to her original

    same for merida’s, tho i wanna reflect her personality in her outfit

    as for hiccup,, might just make something fucken easy to draw bc ,,.god the details to make for my boy’s armour 😭😭

    jack might stay the same, we shall see (i mean it’s just a hoodie that’s pretty damn easy)

    oh and for their modern outfits? definitely gonna do something fun there, i think they deserve some fashionable cosy stuff to wear (probably stuff to wear out, but pyjamas sound fun to do too)

    #rotbtd#text post #and yes DONT worry i’ll get to the asks soon #i hope 😓 #promise i still love the octonauts dont even stress #hope u enjoy the art to come from this (unfortunately itty bitty) fandom im in! #and YEAH IK NO ONE CARES BUT YOURE IN MY GOBLIN BLOG IM GONNA DO WHAT FEELS RIGHT

    ‘I see through you into your soul, that’s what matters to me. Can we talk about people? Do you understand me as a person? Can you give me what I need as a person? As a soul? That’s what’s important to me. It doesn’t matter what’s in your pants.’ - Lachlan Watson

    Here are my dice inspired by the vibrancy of the pansexual pride flag! I’ve wanted to use this gold leaf for ages, and I couldn’t resist the pun 😉💕💙
