I just joined this forum because I came up with the idea of a football
(or soccer) league, and then I found out what geofiction was, and I
put 2 and 2 together! And here I am!
There's going to be all sorts of weird info about the teams, just
random stuff. :P
- Sounds like an interesting idea. From your email, it seems like you
want a basic tour of how we run things around here in order to get
your soccer concept rolling (pun-intended). This message also goes
out to anyone else new who wishes to get started here.
It's really easy to start up a new constructed world, culture,
language, or what-not. All you have to do is post messages about your
ideas, just like the message you just posted. You can post big or
small pieces of your idea at a time. Now while we don't really have
'pages' for our conworlds, etc, you can upload files and photos (your
own of course, no stealing), even putting them in a separate folder
for collections of items. This way, anyone can read up on your idea
without having to search through the message archives. You can also
post a link to any website of yours devoted to anything related with
We're a pretty friendly group, so don't worry about questions that we
may ask about your ideas; we usually are just curious and wish for
more explanation of certain details. We like to encourage positive
feedback towards each other and see new worlds, languages, ideas, and
cultures grow out of this group.
So feel free to post, and if you get stuck on an idea, just ask for
suggestions and you are sure to recieve help from myself or any other
moderators or members.

- Is ReallyBigTree suggesting that each conworld or fictional
geographic entity field a team that's a member of this league?
Even those of us who mostly lurk might find that possible if we were
allowed to schedule games to match our hectic and unpredictable RL
schedules. (Or the unpredictable visits of our Muses.)
But what about those of us who have dwarves or giants? What about
those of us whose people will turn to smoke and mist upon contact
And what about venues for games? Some of us have islands that rise
and sink again; they may rise only once every several decades or so,
and sink after an unpredictable but smallish number of days or weeks
And how about those cultures which really do live on Really Big
Trees? Kicking the ball out of bounds -- worse yet, a player running
out of bounds -- might be permanent, and/or fatal.
Some of our people live in the water, and have multiple limbs,
similar to RL octopada or squids. Any special rules for these?
Some of our cities are crowded to the point of being SRO. How could
a soccer game be played there?
How about those of us who live underground? Or on spaceships? Or on
Some of us have a great deal of reptilian DNA in our genomes. Do we
need any special consideration?
R.B.T., I assume you've done some thinking about some of this.
