For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities.

This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.

What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek as old life discourse- but this is only the crudest way of stating it. Palæontology is unraveling the æons-long story of life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms we have now, including humans, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today.

The goal of this sub is to take monsters from fantasy, mythology, imagination, sketchbooks, videogames and all the like and deconstruct their very character.

The idea is to take a monster and speculate on its biology (e.g. how exactly does bulbasaur function with a plant host on its back), evolution (why did a horse begin producing a horn, leading to the fabled unicorn) and any other deconstructions about our favorite mythologies.
