World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 19 : Relaxation & entertainment

king—of-the—mountain:

What do the people of your world do to relax? What are their hobbies, sports, and just general screwing about? Do the royals get on their sunday best to watch gladiators pummel each other to death? Do the kids in the town gather to kick a ball about? We can always find a break in the conflict to just blow some steam off.
For kids, hockey is a pretty popular choice, as is football, field hockey, baseball, and lacrosse. Soccer- so so. The Großlac is big enough for people to swim, fish, and use a small boat. Fishing and boating are relaxing activities. During the winter, skiing and snowboarding reign supreme. Some people go snowshoeing as well. Hiking is quite the popular activity. Most people stick to hiking Mont Feurer, but during the late summer/fall months, the mountains are off-limits. Other relaxing activities are chess, card games, theatre, movies, walking in the town square, and having drinks.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 18 : Story

king—of-the—mountain:

Tell us a story from your world. Whether it’s just a small happening or a legend passed down for generations through your world’s people. In many cultures the tradition of storytelling is a sacred rite that bonds the generations and honors the past.
I will tell the story of the mountain guardians, their treasures, and how to become the King of the mountain.

A long time ago, settlers came to a gorgeous valley surrounded by three mountains. One of these mountains, Mont Feurer, brought prosperity to the settlers, as it was filled with iron ore. The area became known as a mining village, but also as a iron-working village. Many beautiful things were created from iron in Eisendorf. Tragedy befell these settlers as the iron ore mysteriously ran out one day. Many decided to stay, others decided to seek their fortunes out West. For those who stayed in Eisendorf, they began noticing violent changes in the three mountains.

These changes were attributed to the mountain guardians: Rothüne, Blauhüne, and Grünhüne. The villagers sent three women to speak to the giants: Hélène, Yseult, and Hellelil. Hélène went to speak to Rothüne, Yseult to Blauhüne, and Hellelil to Grünhüne. They were sent to speak to the giants to try to work out what had happened in the mountains. However, the giants killed the women, turning them each into powerful artifacts that would allow the giants to control the elements. (It is said that the giants solely killed them because they were women; this became the basis for the sexist rule of the King Of The Mountain competition- it was for males only.)

Rothüne turned Hélène into the artifact Höllensturm, and he gained the ability to control and create fires. Blauhüne turned Yseult into the artifact Flutsturm, and he gained the ability to control water and rain. Grünhüne turned Hellelil into the artifact Wirbelsturm, and he gained the ability to control air and wind. All three of these artifacts are now known as “treasures”.

During the King Of The Mountain competition, the only way to be crowned as der König d’la Montagne (the King of the mountain) and win the Eisencouronne (the Iron Crown) to meet the three giants, defeat them, and earn their treasures: Hélène’s Passion (the Höllenstrum), Yseult’s Tears (the Flutstrum), and Hellelil’s Breath (the Wirbelstrum).

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 17 : Holidays & celebrations

king—of-the—mountain:

When and how do the folks in your world get down and get funky? Do they give each other gifts during certain times of the year? Do they have certain religious holidays? Are there stories linked to these holidays such as folktales and legends?
This story takes place in the US, so all
US federal holidays
are observed, in addition to the major Christian and Jewish holidays.


Eisendorf has two week-long festivals twice a year to celebrate the region’s French and German heritage; the French festivals run in mid-December and mid-July whereas the German festivals run in mid-February and mid-May. In addition, they have their own Oktoberfest from September until October. Because Oktoberfest is one of the biggest festivals in the whole region and brings in people from all over, it was decided that the King Of The Mountain competition would take place during the same time.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 16 : Education

king—of-the—mountain:

What is the education system of your various cultures? What can a young ‘un hope to learn as they’re in their most curious phases? Are they promised a standardized system or are they handed off to a master to learn a trade as an apprentice? Is knowledge rare or bountiful? This is also a good chance to talk about the knowledge of the world your average potato farmer has in comparison to a scholar in your world. How much do your people even know about the fabric of the complex world you’re forming around them?

There are k-6 and 7-12 Catholic schools in Grand-Eisendorf. Outside of the region in neighboring towns, there are typical public school systems (k-5, 6-8, 9-12), a vocational high school, more Catholic schools, Jewish schools (varies; René goes to one that is all-boys and 6-12), and a community college.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 15 : Family

king—of-the—mountain:

How does the family structure work in your world? Who are the parents of your characters? Lineage can be incredibly important or just a little thing in a world.

Here are some family trees:

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 14 : Transportation

king—of-the—mountain:

How do the folks in your world get about? Beasts of burden? Starships? Do they hoof it from place to place and need a severe commitment to go anywhere far? Remember, this is how goods and people get around as well, so it’s important to think how fast a merchant’s caravan can get to the town over, or to a whole other country entirely!

Bikes, cars, buses, skiing and snowshoeing (though not too common anymore), hitchhiking.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 13 : Monsters

king—of-the—mountain:

What are the demons of your world? The antagonists? The lurking evil that plagues your world? Without evil there is no conflict, though sometimes that monster is just another human being. But never forget to ask why these monsters are monsters? Is it nature? A goal that goes against the protagonists? How evil is evil? Is your antagonist the protagonist of his own story?

As previously mentioned, the original settlers of Eisendorf believed that there were giants that guarded the Eisen Montagnes. They named these giants Rothüne (guardian of Mont Feurer), Blauhüne (guardian of Mont Wasser), and Grünhüne (guardian of Mont Luft).

It was said that these giants had to guard the mountains to prevent greedy humans from taking more land. They did so by using powerful magic to control the weather conditions. Where they get this magic from is the subject of another story…

During the King Of The Mountain competition, the competitors must eventually meet these giants and defeat them. In doing so, they receive the giants powers- whatever those might be. Those who lose against the giants are said to be eaten. Not whole, perhaps just a finger or an arm. The giants do typically like the taste of human flesh, but they don’t outright prefer it.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 12 : History

king—of-the—mountain:

What is the history of your world? What was its origin story, and what are the current events? Wars, betrayals, rough times, and good times all convene to create a rich intertwining history that shapes the course of everyone’s lives. Another important way to view history is what really happened and what is written in the history books? The victor determines the way the story is told after all.

I sort of mentioned most of the history in this post. If anyone has more questions on the town/region history, I’d love to answer them!!

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 11 : Clothing

king—of-the—mountain:

Whether fashionable or functional, what the people in your world wear is an important day to day choice. What clothing is acceptable and widely used in your cultures? What armor do they wear into a fight? What hats do they put on their heads? Let us break into the closet of your world just for a peak at least!

Everyone dresses pretty normally! Usually for the weather… so tank tops, t-shirts, and shorts for most of May through October…November through April is long sleeved shirts and pants…. basically winter weather clothes. A lot of LL Bean and flannel gets worn, mostly by the older crowd. Tourists wear generally very nice, designer clothes.

For those who plan to compete in the King Of The Mountain contest, a lot of prep needs to go into knowing what to expect on the mountains. There’s always the chance of sunstroke, sunburn, infection, mosquito bites, gnat bites, tick bites, sprains and similar joint injuries, pneumonia… so knowing what to wear while mountaineering is quite important! Sturdy boots, a decent pack, and layers are all important components.

Some sketches of other outfits… sorry these are so terrible looking! ://////
The resort uniform looks like this:

Some of the places that cater heavily to tourists have their employees dress a little more “traditional”. For example, this is what a waitress from one of the French restaurants would wear:
image
These are two different work outfits for BJ. The one on the left is what she wears when she helps at her mom’s tea shop. The one on the right is what she wears when doing courier work.
image
And here are some school uniforms that I’m too lazy to sketch out.
image
The boys outfit also includes shorts; the girls outfits also include socks that end just below the knee. The school colors are paris green and white.

World Building J̶u̶n̶e̶ July - Day 10 : Weapons

king—of-the—mountain:

How does the native population defend themselves in their world when things start to get really hairy? Do they resort to the sword, mindblasts, or do they settle their scores with slam poetry?

Call the police, for the most part. There are incidents of violence in which people will take matters into their own hands and assault someone else (either with their fists, a knife, or a gun), but it’s not so incredibly common. Fights in bars are common, usually the contenders are young intoxicated males under the age of 30.
