Someplace in your world setting describe…

1. a settlement that leads the identified world in one thing

Singapore in training, Tar Valon in channelling (The Wheel of Time), Coruscant in politics (Star Wars)

What’s a spot folks look to as a mannequin or reference for a sure exercise or kind of data? This doesn’t have to be a literal kind of management (like Coruscant leads the Republic or Empire as its capital). For instance, Singapore doesn’t dictate how different international locations ought to design their college programs, but it surely’s nonetheless thought of a frontrunner in training. If you wish to tie this in with the expanse theme, possibly the settlement could possibly be identified to have nice information concerning the expanse or possibly it leads the exploration efforts.

2. a navy battle resolved by means of wonderful management

If you wish to showcase the good management and conflict-resolution talents of an essential chief in your world, a navy battle is a superb alternative to take action! The battle might have been resolved utilizing modern methods or by means of diplomacy. To tie this in with the expanse theme, you can have the navy battle be about taking management of the expanse or preventing with the people who reside there. And naturally, you’ll be able to hyperlink it to different prompts too—possibly the settlement of the immediate above is the place the peace negotiations passed off!

3. a constructing related to governance, management or change

The Pentagon, Ministry of Magic (Harry Potter), SHIELD Headquarters (MCU), Vulcan Science Academy (Star Trek)

Buildings related to management usually have a double function. On one hand, they’ve a sensible use—leaders use them to satisfy, make choices, and coordinate their actions. Then again, they carry numerous symbolism. The Pentagon, the White Home, or the Homes of Parliament carry numerous symbolism, which is why you usually see them as targets for prison organizations in motion motion pictures! Within the Harry Potter books, the Ministry of Magic appears completely different earlier than and after Voldemort rises to energy—it nonetheless serves the identical sensible function, however its symbolism has utterly modified.

4. a corporation related to governance, management or change

Authorities, police, Unseen College (Discworld), Knights Radiant (Stormlight Archive), United Federation of Planets (Star Trek)

Leaders are not often alone—in any case, if you wish to lead a bunch of individuals, you’ll want somebody to assist! That is why presidents have a authorities and arranged religions have a complete hierarchy. So, have a look at your world leaders and take into consideration what would they need assistance with! It could possibly be defending folks (just like the Knights Radiant in Stormlight Archive), instructing some form of specialised information (just like the Unseen College), ruling a rustic (United Federation of Planets), or anything you’ll be able to consider.

5. a occupation related to leaders in your world

Instructor, Admiral, Mage, Spaceship captain

The group you wrote about within the earlier immediate shall be led by folks with a selected occupation. That’s your alternative to write down about what this job entails (somewhat than writing a couple of particular individual). That is additionally time to write down a couple of management occupation that isn’t on the high of the hierarchy. For instance, most lecturers should not the leaders of their colleges, however they definitely are essential leaders for his or her college students.

6. a title that instructions respect from these within the know

Dean, She-ra (She-ra and the Princesses of Energy), Jedi Grasp (Star Wars)

We’ve talked about professions, now it’s time for ranks and titles! These often command extra respect (or worry) and are often an added accountability over the individual’s job. For instance, a Dean might nonetheless be a trainer, a Jedi Grasp remains to be a Jedi (i.e. they’ve the job of defending folks), and She-ra remains to be a warrior for the resistance. Typically the ranks simply change the tasks of the individual (like a Dean or a Jedi) and are a logo of their information or knowledge. In different instances, the title could possibly be intrinsically tied to some type of magical capability or superpower (like She-ra), particularly in fantasy tales.

7. a convention or ceremony which confers an honor on somebody

Commencement, Coronation, The Gathering (Star Wars)

Titles have to be earned! The way in which somebody might get a title or honor will depend upon the title’s nature and function. For instance, in an effort to graduate, you’ll want to end a course. With a purpose to be coronated, you’ll want to be born into the fitting household. This final one isn’t actually a private accomplishment, however there’s often numerous symbolism round it. For instance, in The Lord of the Rings, although Aragorn is topped king as a result of he’s of the fitting household, he additionally earns the title by main Gondor in a final determined try to overthrow Sauron. Typically going by means of the ceremony is sufficient to acquire an honor: for instance, Jedi Padawans have to undergo the Gathering to get the crystals for his or her lightsabers.

8. an incredible chief of their folks

Alexander the Nice, Elrond (The Lord of the Rings), Picard (Star Trek)

Some individuals are so inspiring or influential that they’re remembered no matter their rank or affiliation. To create this, I like to recommend first creating at the least half of the earlier prompts after which utilizing the entire new context you need to create that essential character. They could possibly be a navy or political chief, however if you wish to combine them with every part you’ve written up to now, make them related to discovery and exploration within the expanse. You may have your individual Picard in your world!
