Project Realm. Sculpting the World, Part 13

Yeah, yeah, I know what I said yesterday! Taking a break from posting Project Realm and all that. Well, turns out I don’t, at least not today. I must admit it did initially come forth from being at a loss for what to write today and I was kind of reluctant to start it. Still, when I sat down, opened Word and the map of the Realm and started typing, it actually came to me fairly easily and it felt pretty good. Maybe the upcoming days will see more Project Realm posts after all. ^_^

Today sees the introduction of the third of the islands to flesh out, the Island of the Cold-Blooded. I remember very little about it, so once more there’ll be a lot of sculpting from scratch to do. Enjoy! ^_^

Sculpting the World

3. The Island of the Cold-Blooded
Map of the Realm (Island of the Cold Blooded-Highlighted)
Overall climate: Tropical, sub-tropical
Main geographical features: Rainforests, mountains, valley, grassland, marsh, river

Home of the various reptilian and amphibious species collectively known as Lizardfolk or Lizardmen, the Island of the Cold-Blooded extends for 1,125 km from the North to the South coast and for almost 1,250 km from the East to the West coast. Depending on the region, the island’s overall climate can range from sub-tropical to tropical. Temperatures are generally high and remain fairly constant throughout the year, although the Kroxigor Mountains and the Valley of the Wild Lizards have overall lower temperatures than the rest of the island. Periods without rainfall are very rare. The island is very fertile and teeming with both animal and plant life in addition to the sentient Lizardfolk.

While the different kinds of Lizardfolk consider themselves a single people and do not recognize official borders aside from the confines of the island, they do each inhabit their own regions, named after the specific species of Lizardfolk living there. They are: 1) the Pantathiën Lowlands; 2) the Skink Forests; 3) the Slan Marshes; 4) the Kroxigor Mountains and 5) the Valley of the Wild Lizards. It should be noted that some of the regions overlap and transition into each other, making the borders less clear-cut than might be shown on a map.


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

  1. […] that makes any sense… In any case, today we will continue where we left last time, on the the Island of the Cold-Blooded. While most of the Lizardfolk here were inspired by those in the Warhammer fantasy universe, after […]

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.
