A New Word is a simple forum game I created on top of my head when I was bored. The goal of the game was simple, to create an alternate world (can be fantasy or steampunk) from a collaborative effort. In the "game", a poster proposes a premise for a new world, a template and a theme the world will have. This could be medieval fantasy, sci-fi, space, even an alternate universe where everything is made from candy. As more and more user suggests new creatures, cultures, how climate work, the law of physics in there. The more detailed the world will be.
This is how I envision the conversation in this new forum "game" will have:
User I :Boarant is a species of ant that scours throughout the lake of Lakias. they're name are from the combination between a Boar and an Ant. They're meat are usually hunted by race of Arathi as a source of vitamins
User II : The Boarant has high vitamin value because of their primary source of food; the Tealberry that they eat which gave them enhanced strength and made their meat more nutritious to the people of Arathi.
Notice how important word that is arcane to our reality is bolded? I believe that when a new concept is created that has a link to other creation made by other users. There should be a hyperlink that let the reader go back to the original concept of the creation. So essentially, we're making a Wikipedia of a fictional world that we created. This rule could change.
Also please remember that this is created for fun so don't expect expert level word writing in this thread since the world that will be created is the byproduct of the community,
1. Follow all the forum rules i don't think this warrants lots of explanation
2. Expect plot holes and inconsistency I think its part of the fun to see the users tried to fix inconsistent lore within the world or try to make an agreement between 2 conflicting ideas of a concept.
3. Make sure your idea fits the world you can't expect a steampunk giant robot that shoots lasers in a prehistoric world. Basically, try to make your ideas as fit to the world as possible.
4. Have fun this is just a simple forum game and not an expert writing course obviously
Before we start adding in ideas to make a world richer. We need to establish an idea of what the world as a whole would look like. It could be a prehistoric world filled with cavemen and shamanic magic or a sci-fi world where constant planetary scale war is happening. That's up to you guys.

Hmm, Very interesting if I say so myself, so how about we start with a little bit of this.
Within the vast reaches of space lay a single spherical object of interesting importance, red and violet in color, with quite the wispy green objects in the atmosphere of the air, and pale orange patches around the various parts of the planet, had I forget to tell you that an atmosphere exists? either ways, This planet's details have yet to be cleared to the viewers mind, but it shall be soon, soon.
