What is Conworlding?

Conworlding, also called worldbuilding, is the process of constructing an imaginary world, sometimes associated with a whole fictional universe. The resulting world may be called a constructed world or a conworld. The term "worldbuilding" was popularized at science fiction writers' workshops in the 1970s. Developing an imaginary setting with coherent qualities such as a history, geography, and ecology is a key task for many science fiction or fantasy writers. Worldbuilding often involves the creation of maps, a backstory, and people for the world. Constructed worlds can enrich the backstory and history of fictional works, and it is not uncommon for authors to revise their constructed worlds while completing its associated work. Constructed worlds can be created for personal amusement and mental exercise, or for specific creative endeavors such as novels, video games, or role-playing games.

Flag of Lovecraftianism.jpg Lovecraftianism | Featured conreligion
Hastur is considered by most Lovecraftian cults to be the king or leader of all the Great Old Ones.

Author: Thewolvesden
Project: Altverse II
Family: New religious movements
Followers: est. 34 million (Temple of Cthulu)
Summary: Lovecraftianism is a part polytheistic, part henotheistic religion that was founded by Northeasterners H.P. Lovecraft and Harry Houdini, and Brazorian Robert E. Howard in 1928 in New York City. The predominant sect of the Lovecraftians groups, namely the Temple of Cthulhu, is adhered to by just under a quarter of the almost 34 million adherents worldwide.

Most Lovecraftianist sects teach that humans were never meant to have much knowledge of how the universe works, or even about most of the events and creatures in existence, as such forbidden knowledge would drive man insane or destroy him. The gods of Lovecraftianism, depicted as otherworldy, uncaring beings from outer space, divided into two circles, namely the Great Ones and the Outer Gods. These gods, while not truly deities, are nonetheless worship-worthy, as they are vastly more powerful. According to most Lovecraftian sects and groups, the universe is an uncaring place with indifferent gods. Unless saved by one of the gods and turned into one of their servants, entropy will claim the soul of a human, as the gods do not care enough to accept all into an afterlife. As such, placating one or more gods with prayer, offerings and even sacrifice is seen as both pledging oneself to one deity and buying oneself an afterlife and escaping entropy.

Lovecraftianism's teachings and doctrines derive from a collection of holy scriptures known as the Necronomicon, and the stories all branches of Lovecraftianism includes are the writings of Lovecraft and Howard. However, there are a myriad of books, short stories and other forms of tellings which are not considered universally canonical, and as such are in debate between the myriad of Lovecraftian groups.

The scattered nature of Lovecraftianism can be derived from the early death of the founders and the splits between different groups just after Lovecraft, the last founder, died in 1936. This lead to a loose interpretation of what the Necronomicon contains, leading to about a quarter of all Lovecraftians to be categorized into a category of 'other standpoint or own beliefs'.

United Commonwealth five dollar note (obverse).svg

The Continental Dollar known officially as the United Commonwealth dollar (symbol: Ȼ; code: UCD also abbreviated UCȻ) is the official legal tender of the United Commonwealth. In 1919 partisan forces of the Continentalist Party seized nearly 4,500 metric tons of gold reserves belonging to the Federal Reserve during a series of heists. It was the largest seizure of wealth in recorded history and dismantled the Federalist dollar, sending the global economy into a financial panic and finally a recession. Continental forces quickly attempted to alleviate the fears of international trading partners, printing a new series of tender that would act as a temporary promissory for the gold. With the death of Aeneas Warren the nation began refusing to return gold reserves to adversarial nations and former businessmen. In 1925 the currency was officially transitioned into a labour voucher and in 1948 the tender was turned to a fiat note.

The five dollar bill (shown above) depicts the Chicago skyline on its obverse and on its reverse Isaiah Landon. Because of its unique style, rejection of European style security features and color patterns it is highly sought after by collectors. Zhou Xinyue, depicted on the ten dollar note, was the first Asian-American to be depicted on legal tender in North America.
