So I’m sitting here at work unable to concentrate because I can’t fucking decide if the new Netflix show “Altered Carbon” is actually good. For the uninitiated it’s a neo-nior cyberpunk sci-fi series about a man named “Takeshi Kovacs” who is brought back to life 250 years after he died to help solve the murder/maybe suicide of one ultra-rich Laurens Bancroft.
Now of course it’s a little more complicated than that.
So I’m putting this in the “Worlds Building” section although its not a story is a bunch of scribbles of thoughts I’ve been having.
For people who don’t know world building is the process of designing a world. (r/Worldbuilding or Artifexian) However world building shows up in any creative work to some degree. World building defines the characters, the settings, the emotions, the story, just about everything in a creative work. That’s not to say that the work has to be a game or a novel with a define story it could also be a DnD campaign where the story comes from interacting with the environments or it can even be a collection of fake sports some creates in there room for fun. They are all forms of world building.
Netflix’s political thriller, House of Cards, starring Kevin Spacey premiered its 5 season two days ago. With out spoiling much–and if you haven’t seen it give it a watch but keep in mind season 3 is a transition–there comes a point where they begin talking about the Vice Presidency.
