The thing is, I've never been into sci-fi. Or really anything to do with space. I've dipped my toes into the big-name media stars but most of them just fall flat for me. They aren't bad or anything...just boring. Why I picked something that takes place in SPACE is beyond me. But, this is the most fun I've had world-building in some time.
Just how MUCH can be done with other life-forms, planets, organizations, religions, etc. is astounding. Honestly, why stick to a oddcoloredhuman* design when you can just mold something that is affected by where they lived. Or what they worshiped. Fucking amazing. Its a huge headache keeping it in check but hell I'm so giddy about it.
I love world-building. I love so much.
I can make something that looks like a cross between a kangaroo and whippet and it would work. Starting to prefer space stuff over fantasy.
Anyways, I need to read some space stuff. Just to get some ideas.
*its a pet peeve sorry i'm guilty of it :C
