Episode 19 - Ptemos

Hosts: Jim, Jon & Kent

Guest: Matthew Wayne Selznick

Finally, a new episode with actual world-building in it! Though in this episode, we go about it a little differently. Our guest, creator Matthew Wayne Selznick, walks us through the process of building a truly habitable planet, as detailed in his book World-Building for Writers, Gamers and Other Creators, Volume One: Star, Planet, Moon. We develop the world, and from there we brainstorm up a sentient species with a primitive culture.

During the course of recording, we found a pretty cool site about language: Edenics.
