    The main issue iss the interaction with the giants and the people has not been clearly decided on. So the inhabitants act like helpful parasites or do they interact with their home giants in some manner as I see both ways as plausible, I'm leaning towards the latter personally but a combination of both would be great to

    A bit of both. Giant dwellers fight off the massive parasites, and they send out "Boogie Knights" to help the giants find mates. Some cities would obviously be a bit more dickish, seeking to abuse or control their giants somehow.

    >I think the proposal was that there is some form of communication, buts its more subliminal than anything. Ideas and images rather than actual conversation.

    Yeah, my impression was that the giant doesn't know it's getting its information from the humans (it may be unable to fathom something that small and insignificant), while the humans are never sure if it's their efforts that found the giant a mate or if he just knows where he's going. But they hope it helps, and it's institutionalized ritual by this point. It's good for the community to think you're helping your nation-world out.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)20:27 No.17835687
    true, but I think that both could feasibly work. subliminal messaging could work well especially for the majority of the quadrupedal giants while some form of actual communication for the bipedal ones. Of course this could be switched around from giant to giant, but it adds a layer of depth to how the different giant cultures would develop.

    I am vehemently against this sort of thing being possible to manage. These things are basically forces of nature, to humans. Unless the humans are somehow at a level to perform tidal shifts or something, they shouldn't be able to meaningfully harm their host.

    If this is the case, it had better be really small. And the fact that they can communicate meaningfully with it should make the humans wonder if it's even the same type of being as the rest.
    >> αlpharius !yJOmegoN4Y 02/06/12(Mon)20:31 No.17835728
    Actual conversation could probably work, but it would have to be rather rare I would think.
    The idea was for this to be BBEG material more than anything, and it was off the level of lobotomising and stimulation of pain centres.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)20:32 No.17835743
    Probably less "communication" and more "offerings, prayers, and sacrifices"? Something where it's not clear that they're getting through, and they have to figure out whether their cries have been answered by what ends up happening.

    Think omens and rituals, like the Romans? Even in their myths they didn't have the gods coming down and directly interacting with humans.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)20:33 No.17835748
    Makes sense. The rituals MIGHT do something, but no one really knows if it really is helping.

    That would be passable as BBEG material. A crazy sorcerer or a dark lord that can control a giant would be established as serious goddamn business.

    I said "seeking", not doing. But the giants aren't invincible, they mate, give birth, and die like any other creature. Some psychotic king might try and succeed at lobotomizing one, but since he doesn't know how to brain it would just tip over, leaving the city destroyed and everyone at the mercy of the ground's endless horrors.

    Imagine it, giant winged snakes with cities along their spine, the only inhabitants of these World-devourers are Marauders and Savages.

    The largest one, the Supposed "Brood Mother" of these beasts is named....


    Because every setting needs Aztecs.

    Though if you really want to make an apex predator above and beyond the World Walkers, then you sure as fuck don't want it inhabited or even habitable. People live on World Walkers, and if THEY'RE scared of this thing, it's a fucking nightmare. You don't live on a nightmare.

    You live on a Nightmare if the only civilization you have is based around boarding World Walkers, murdering the people who live on them, and taking their supplies.

    I imagine the standard method for Boarding for the people living on a giant snake would be to wait until the thing constricts the World Walker, and just rappel down the MASSIVE GOD DAMN CLIFF SIDES of the tail unto the city below.

    I can get that crops and things could be potentially grown on the backs of such beasts, but what of there more sensitive things like metals, and other materials that cannot be grown?

    Even trees would be a bit of a problem starting out, I'm sure because of roots a tree would only be able to grow to a certain point before having to be cut down, to prevent the roots from growing too deep into the City's back.

    What about cities small enough that their inhabitants can carve/create armour and fortifications for their dwelling? Or perhaps Titans small enough to live on for individual families/dynasties. The few, handful of humanity with enough power to own a titan all to themselves.

    For years the nightmares persist, for ever creature, every mortal and giant, even the greatest of the walking worlds feel ill at ease. At the height of the madness when all the land is in panic, it stirs.

    A long slumbering nightmare that lives beneath the earth, maybe below the waves as well, slowly giving birth to an army of demonic creatures on it's dark and dire carapace. Then it emerges amongst earthquakes and tidal waves to feed on lesser beings, which is everything, and grow ever stronger, only resting again if it is beaten down by the combined might of the world. Or after it and it's children has consumed all.

    One thing to note, if the titans/colossi are worshipped, then some people are going to worship the nightmare.

    I propose the cult of the nightmare below.
    A cult that is dedicated to awakening the nightmare.
    The exact reasons for doing this vary from sect to sect however they can normally be split into two groups;
    Those who seek to awaken the nightmare so as to colonise it.
    And those who seek to use the nightmare to eradicate the walkers.

    You have minerals. Some places have a "Catcher" in place, which is sort of like a giant diaper of sorts. Other Titans tend to stick around for a bit after eating and such, in sort of "Rest period".

    In this "Rest period" Works in the feet are able to fly down and gather the minerals in the feces, thus making a Titan a completely self sufficient thing.

    Different diets would give different minerals, so trade is the main form of interaction between nations.

    Arachnotopians spin their clothes from spiderwebs. The webs of the colossus is far too big, howeever, but it's not the only spider around. Arachnotopia has large herds of regular giant spiders, which they use for meat and clothing.
    What do they wear? Spidersilk.

    What is their armor made of? Spider chitin.
    What are their arrows coated with? Venom.
    What do they ride on? What drags their plows? What drags their carriages and wagons? Spiders. Giant spiders.

    They even invented the spider net thrower. It is a throwing mechanism that throws spiderwebs. "Sure, it works with spidersilk and tangles the target up," said the general to the engineer. "But what if we add tiny spiders to the net?"
    "Sir," replied the engineer. "Isn't that enough spider already? Don't you think we're overdoing it with the spiders?"

    The answer was no, there can never be enough spiders.

    Also, is anyone going to update the wiki page with all the new stuff we've got? The official name World Walkers and the different classifications of fuckhueg beings, how the inhabitants communicate with their Walker (i.e. via ritual where they're still not actually completely sure it's having any real effect, but it's a community-building thing anyway), the Nightmare, the extra writefaggotry and drawfaggotry we've gotten...

    Imagine it, after tearing the Great Devourer from the skies and slaying it, saving all of the World Walkers for all time. It could open up to a second campaign. Decades, maybe centuries later, long after the original heroes have died. People see that there are more Titans, far more than there ever were before. Hardly a week goes by without seeing another Titan, another city.

    Then it occurs to them once the food for the Titans starts to dwindle, or more Titan bodies are seen, caused by violence between the Titans due to the decreased Territory.

    Then they hear rumors, legends? Myths? that the Great Devourer, the World Shaper and the End Bringer was actually needed for the world, and that there have been whisperings among the Kings and nobles of ancient texts found, thought to belong to the End Riders. Of an ancient egg that never broke, that never grew warm or could be broken.

    The Death of the One Devourer opens up a second campaign millenia later, the quest for the World Shaper's egg.

    Generally Titans stay in one climate, due to their diet, so the inhabitant of its sprawling cities grew the proper crops and weatherproof their homes to whatever elements are expected of the climate.

    There are rumors of few Titans that are so massive they have their own climates, plantlife, and wildlife. Even its people have developed their own culture that cannot be found anywhere else.

    ...I would assume that EVERY World Walker has its own culture. They only come into contact with each other once every several months to several years, and then only briefly. World Walkers, by-and-large, are solitary creatures.

    Also while we're establishing the dietary/biological differences between Colossi and Titans, they do need to be capable of interbreeding. Or at least have the same desire to mate with each other as they do with their more similar brethren. Blame OP picture.

    There's a lot of terms being used.

    World-Walkers, Titans, Colossi

    I assume WWs are the truly, astonishingly large ones that look like Final Fantasy boss fights. Colossi are smaller and seem humanoid, and Titans are the smallest of the lot (size of a mountain?) and look human.

    Nope, I have computer labs instead.

    World Walkers is a catch all term for the creatures being described by the setting.
    Titans are humanoid beings that have flesh, they are effectively ludicriously large giants.
    Colossi are inorganic constructs, they are more like the creature in the opening post, they may or may not be humanoid.

    Giants are just giants, they are noway near as large and are not world walkers.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)23:22 No.17838087
    World Walkers are anything big enough to build a city/small nation on. They're so big that they don't even register the existence of humans, and are subdivided into Colossi (made of rock or some other inanimate material - can still be roughly humanoid in shape) and Titans (big and made of flesh. Tend to wear their cities rather than have them built into them). Humans living on World Walkers "communicate" them via the performance of communal, religious rituals (e.g. to help their WW find a mate or food), though no-one's sure if it has any real effect (if it does, it's subconscious), or if the WW runs across food or a suitable mate afterward of his own doing. They do it anyway because it helps strengthen the community and they like to think it helps.

    Giants are significantly smaller, capable of supporting maybe one family of humans. They'll communicate with humans and are not related to World Walkers, but they choose to carry humans around to imitate World Walkers as a gesture of awe/respect/etc.

    Clear enough?

    How big would you say the World Shaper is?

    It's hard to imagine what it would be MADE of, a Fleshy World Shaper doesn't sound right, and having it be purely rock doesn't seem right either.

    Last term, which you probably haven't seen, is the Nightmare. There's only one of this guy, and he's the only thing with a decent chance of taking a given World Walker without going down himself. He's the apex predator - a huge flying dragon thing who basically keeps the World Walkers' numbers in check. This guy is naturally an absolute horror to anyone who lives on a World Walker (read: most of humanity). The total number of WWs is anywhere from 24-48, from what we've figured out so far.

    These creatures should be beyond humans in every way. The only thing that can kill a world-walker is another world-walker, or the Nightmare.

    Having a human-sized sword that can kill a titan is like having a bacteria-sized sword that can kill a human. Can you imagine a single bacteria, without reproducing itself or causing infection, killing a human being? Impossible.

    Titans carry humans in their clothes (on the insides of jewelery, in very elaborate hats like the second image posted in this thread, in crevices in clothing...) Someone from the last thread mentioned humans building rope ladders and whatnot to get from "village" to "village" across various garments and adornments.

    People living on Titans tend to have it harder. Colossi tend to house the really big metropoli. People on Titans are generally spread out into more, smaller settlements.

    Very nice, but as was earlier mentioned, that level of development will be noticed. At that point, interaction between humans and walker is given. No walker would let that level of civilization develop without some serious bonuses.

    So for titans at least, there needs to be communication. Since they're mostly human, that should be fine. Colossi can remain unknowing because they're fucking huge.
    >> Anonymous 02/06/12(Mon)23:56 No.17838513
    Maybe she's a half-breed? We've got proof of Colossi and Titans breeding anyways, stuff like this is a perfect halfway point.

    David shivered at a gust of biting wind, crossing his arms tightly beneath his woolen jacket. Leaning in to the wind, he quickened his pace, eager to escape the open air and bitter cold. The morning was clear and bright, save for a few errant wisps of fog that still clung to the craggy upper reaches. Distant dirigibles scudded through the blue sky, sunlight glinting off their steel frames.

    Turning a corner in the rough-hewn road, a grin spread across David's face as the city of Redmount spread across his view. Built right into the stone sides of their Walker, the cities ancient buildings seemed to crawl up the sides of mountain, stacked endlessly atop one another. Bright banners and flags snapped smartly, advertising noble breweries, general stores, renowned gunsmiths, and the myriad other businesses that had sprung up. The narrow streets were packed with innumerable crowds, flowing up and down and inwards and outwards. The noise of their movement was clear even from the bottom of the city, where David stood.

    With a spring to his step, the boy skipped into the city, one hand firmly over his coat pocket. It wasn't often that he had coin to spare, and he was determined to make the most of what he had. Hopefully, if he had more delivery jobs like this one, he would get to make more trips into the city. Maybe he would even be able to buy some sweets from the confectioner, if he had money to spare at the end of the day!

    A rumble filled the earth then, and a great grinding sound, as though a boulder where being smashed against a cliff face. With a colossal thunder, the city lurched forward, sending unwary pedestrians stumbling to their knees. Loose furniture and goods were thrown into the air, pelting unfortunates with leftover lunches and silverware.

    I think for Titans, it isn't so much as not noticing, it's much more "Don't give a fuck because it's slightly different colored rocks on my skin with tiny things living in them that aren't outright harming me"

    It seems to imply that these beings can sleep for a LONG ass time. When she wakes up the bottom half is going to be fucked over, at best being able to escape before she gets up. The rest of them up top may or may not be left alone, depending how she feels about it.

    I did have a setting colossi. They didn't breed mind you, but with magic having returned, the planes of Africa simply stood up and started walking around in circles.

    With new magic related storms/natural disasters claiming the entire land(s), people noticed how the collosi were never caught in them, constantly wandering around and in between them.
    So the people adjusted to a nomad lifestyle, carefully following the colossi, without getting caught up and destroyed by a colossus directly, but also naturally not being left behind or getting caught up in a storm.
    The capital, lead by a former Earthdawn character, built the capital right on top of the largest collosus. And to be frank, a safe haven to anyone hunted by Dragons, not that the people are very keen on accepting outsiders.

    Also, while I don't want to be that guy who doesn't do all the reading, did we ever come up with a reason people live on these cities and what these giants do? Cause I have an idea for both, if anyone wants to hear it.
    >> Anonymous 02/07/12(Tue)00:06 No.17838648
    The giants do whatever their inscrutable god-minds decide they want to do. All we know is that sometimes this involves eating or mating.

    People live on them because life on the surface is hostile. Having one of these things tromping around near you is not good for your settlements, and building on World Walkers allows for more permanent homes.

    Also something about the ground-based flora maybe being toxic.

    David weathered the lurching movement with the ease of long practice, one hand latched onto a steel rail, his stance wide. Within seconds of their commencement, the great rumbling stopped, allowing the grumbling of the crowd to be heard once more.
    "That's 'is third step today," A wiry old dock worker said admiringly, "He mus' be feelin' sprightly."
    David nodded wisely at the statement, then promptly forgot the whole occasion. He had an important job to do, after all.

    Glancing at the burden he carried once more, David cast about the street, searching for a building marked with the same insignia. Although he could not read the signs that marked every street corner, David had wandered the cities streets many times, and had come to navigate more by instinct than conscious thought. It was the work of mere minutes before the boy discovered his target.

    A sharp rap on the door summoned a portly, well attired servant, who regarded the scruffy boy with an expression of distaste.
    "Evenin' sir," David began, drawing himself up self-consciously. "I's been hired to deliver this package to yer' home. ' Was told I'd be paid for me services."
    The last part was lie, David had been paid in advance. But it was always worth trying for a few extra coins. Holding the package out hopefully, David smiled in what he hoped was an endearing manner.

    The butler gingerly accepted the package, wiping his fingers as he set it aside.
    "Here, boy," He said brusquely, holding out a pair of half-dollars. "A bit of payment for your troubles. Now get yourself gone."
    David quickly snatched the pair of coins from the servants hands, scampering off before the man could think twice about it.

    Chuckling, the boy ran back into the city, eager to spend his newly acquired wealth.

    Huh. Kinda had a different idea.

    In every generation, there are humans or other sapient mortals who are said to be born with Giant Spirits. They, in turn can forge a mental imprint with a giant, becoming a sort of hybrid creature, the human (elf, gnoll, kobold, whatever) is the Guide, who provides the alien intelligence of a giant with the goals and ambitions of an intelligent being, rather than somewhat alien-beast intelligence.

    The giant however provides the Body. The Body has needs. Absorbing and relinquishing magic, living around comfortable leylines and manapools, fucking, and so on.

    Cities are founded on the back of these Titans because they tend to be safe, as well as the trade nexuses of Kingdoms, the giants being a kind of citadel unto themselves, often enough, brought to a vaguely controllable level with Guides. "Vaguely", mind you, since even as Bodies become more human with the exchange, Guides become more alien, and in then end Guide/Bodies have more in common with other giant-symbionts than the respective races they came from, especially when a Body wants to and eventually does fuck and the other way around.

    So, you know. A lot of adventure hooks there. Helping a Guide tame a Body, kingdoms trying to keep a hold of things when their Guide takes a city off to do some unknowable giant thing or something. Wars between different kingdoms on the backs of giants.

    Oh yeah, and different types of giants doing different things and whatnot. Rocky giants digging and building mountains and passes, humanoid giants leading flocks and herds of beasts, hybrids doing other stuff, and Guides bonding with all different kinds of giants...
