This is really nice stuff, thanks!  I love the "making of" page here:

It's like a Cranian World Burner gone horribly mad!!

Ah! I've read through these a few months ago. They're pretty cool world-building experiments, although a bit too shifted toward the furry crowd, if you ask me... ;)

This is so awesome it makes me want to head-butt you.

Well, we can't all be Wayne Barlowe or Dougal Dixon. I really like these despite the furry thing.

Forget about "Green Mars"! I'm totally impressed by Green Australia.

NinJ: Hah! Yeah, I thought the furry thing is, um,  unfortunate.

It's a bit sad to look at Dubia and see Hamburg and all those other great old cities gone.

This sucked up a lot of day... they're awesome, thanks for sharing.

So like, what can we do with this now?

Enjoy it.  It's beautiful.

This is perhaps the first and only time I've ever been *excited* about global warming.

I take back what I said about being disappointed about the furry thing. They're not furries because he's lazy and it's a popular internet meme; they're furries because that's what he wants. I think that's awesome.

Oh! Leave me standing around with a "he's including furries because it's a popular internet meme" stick in my hand! Bastard. *sigh*

I specifically had this guy in mind as a basis for comparison.


13. On 2007-02-10, NinJ said:

Hey! I forgot about that guy! I always wished that he'd gone all the way out and had some stories and artifacts assembled to go with the evolution. I wished he'd speculate a bit on the culture and stuff. Also, it's awfully humanoid.

To be fair, the complex life stage of planet building is always the most open for interpretation...

Oh, and is it just me, or do some of these worlds - like Serrana, especially - seem perfectly suited to hosting a longer term game of "Sign in, Stranger"?

I'm totally using that Mars in the Mars 2534 PTA game I'm trying to get my suck ass group to start.


16. On 2007-02-12, NinJ said:

Brand, is it possible that a suck ass group isn't the group for you?


17. On 2007-02-14, Brand Robins said:

Naw, my suck ass group is the best group humanly possible. Its just that I despise humanity, and being human, my group thus suffers from my spite.

You and my brother, man.

He'll come into the room shaking his head. "So many houses, so few poxes," he'll say.

Whoo. I was totally looking for exactly this and I didn't know I was until you posted it. Many thanks!
