Discord (Harmony 2): The Entropy Note by FoxElemental
Part 1 introduced us to the world of the harmonic crystals -- powerful, dangerous harmony and disharmony. The story continues in part 2 (and if you don't remember part 1 well enough it still works).
“That’s all we know about the incident. Various hacking and breaching attempts have been made with the highest levels of overrides, but ARI is unresponsive. Research into the possibility of involvement of Great Notes is ongoing.”
The rest of the lectures are all vague theories and data on how the incident has affected such-and-such. My eyes glaze over until, finally, it was time to leave.
I jump up and hurry out the door, back to the research lab. The harmonizers are trying something new today, something that might mean a breakthrough. And possibly promotion, for me.
I wonder what ARI is doing now, dormant, resting.
We’re getting closer.

Previous post: Fantastical Evolution: A Perfect, Unreasonable New standard & Alternatives by Suman Jampala (new contributor!)
Welcome to what I hope is the first in a series on worldbuilding process by our newest contributor, Suman Jampala:
World building is crucial for the science fiction and fantasy genre, where the world of earth may be anywhere from barely sufficient to extremely important ( in genres such as steam punk, dieselpunk or cyberpunk ). As such, world builders take great pains to ensure the uniqueness, appeal, scientific realism and wonder of their worlds. This article proposes a method to approach fantastical works, through a concentrated focus on world building.
Given my interest in the world of hard magic ( as opposed to soft magic ), I began to come across a series of revelations and ideas that I have employed to work on my own projects. I would like to share these in the hope that they will be useful for fellow world builders, get feedback from them so I can improve upon them, and work toward a better world for all world builders.
