Here I am hoping to develop a novel set in my fantasy world based very loosely on "Alice in Wonderland". I will write the novel myself, but you all can help me develop it!
So until recently my fantasy world has included three main continents, but I have decided on adding a fourth. The fourth continent will be inspired by Europe, mostly the Germany area. It will also be Latin-influenced, though not so much as my original continent. Along with that, the area and characters would be loosely based on "Alice in Wonderland" in that some of the characters, locations, and so on will hold some familiarity. This includes a major character named Queen Alice, and three other major characters (based on Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, and White Rabbit). Granted they are all mortals, except the Cheshire Cat character may be of my "humanoid cat" race.
So far I have the major characters relatively in order, though I will still provide a list of them for you all to comment on. As for politics, the nation is run by four Noble Houses. The Noble Houses of Hearts, Spades, Diamonds, and Clubs. Each Noble House has their own agenda and their own specific functions in the nation. There are also Ruined Houses, Noble Houses that are no longer functioning, with the most well known being the Noble House of Red Roses and the Noble House of Black Roses. The Noble House of Black Roses had been established for the sole purpose of overthrowing the Noble House of Red Roses, and thus began the War of Roses. The war nearly tore the nation apart until it was ended in an instant by the head of the Noble House of Red Roses (Queen Alice).
I will post more of the history later as well as my story ideas, but for now I would like to tell you all your part in this group. You are all welcome to simply comment on the material I have and update you all with, but you will also be allowed to give me ideas and information that I may or may not use in the novel. Since this does take place in my fantasy world there is already some established lore, but I am treating this new continent as as much of a reboot as I can get away with but still give it a place in my current world.
I look forward to working with you all. Please try to take this seriously.
