the world vamalas

vamalas has seven moons named colt, bwort, rim and arc
the other three are actually three asteroids that were caught in colts gravitational pull
there are many different tides, when colt is orbiting the tide is 50 feet in from normal, bwort 90, rim 30, and arc 200
when all the the moons are full and orbiting they will form a shape that proclaims certain doom
for the continents will flood and everyone will die,(this is fortelled as a sort of apocalypse)

there are three continents, there names are vuoremar, vrendrack, and vivak
vuoremar has a climate of wet mountains and lakes, many forests and jungles, and one of the only 2 that has snow.
vrendrack is hot, scorching hot, it has many many plains and desterts and huge volcanos everywhere the meoters hit. there is a range of volacanos called the lords of fire and death sealing off an area that was once the captial city of the empire.
vivak is tropical much like the so-called garden of eden, it has green forests and mountains and all kinds of flowers.

vrendrack has a gargantuan minotaur empire that hosts an emporor and is constantly at war with the centars, it has cavedwelling plainsmen who were once from vuoremar but have expanded and become slaves, it's dragons are much like the kind depicted in mythology except about 300 feet larger.

Welcome back, arghhhhhhhhh...

All of this is impossible. If the moons can align to where they cause apocalyptic tides, how did life ever stick around long enough to get established? The same goes for the meteors and volcanoes... nothing should have survived on that clearly blighted continent.

The moons you've proposed, including the one with mini-moons of its own, seem highly unlikely. I'd think that the planet's gravity would pull those asteroids out of the one moon's orbit, causing them to strike the planet and nuke all life.

And the dragons... how does such a beast stay alive? It would probably have to spend the better part of any day eating.

In a word, Ouch. In four words, in before the lock.

Well, it depends. There could have been a massive magical cataclysm which disrupted the moons' orbits AFTER life was formed, tohugh how life would survive for more than a few centuries (if even that) after this cataclysm is beyond me.

Ofcourse, they could just have lotsa boats, like Waterworld.

Maybe all life could be aerial or aquatic?

Dikiyoba appreciates the fact that the spelling is fairly accurate and there is basic grammer. Now, how about proper punctuation?

And some upper case, occasionally?

Thoughts:

You have a vibrant imagination, but should work on writing skills before you venture into creative writing. It's only half creative, and the other part is, well, writing. Writing well.
And the world you described is pretty unrealistic as fantasy worlds go, and contrived. The number of moons on a fantasy world is traditionally any number not equal to one, but the greater it is, the sillier it becomes. Two are fine. Four are just barely okay. Seven are a bit overdone...

Hmm...werewolves existing on a planet with two moons...think of the possibilities.

Dikiyoba sort of lumped capitalization in with periods and commas under "punctuation."

Hmmm. I think my main question is WTF? How can anyone be expected to give you good, reasonable input when given a bare minimum of what you've already thought of? Honestly, I'm not at all sure what the purpose of this topic is. Nobody is going to read all 461 additional pages, and yet without them, everybody's advice is useless. What do you hope to accomplish?

That reminds me of a dream I had about a planet with 5 suns and 3 moons. That was a very interesting dream.

Anyway...a planet with 7 moons AND life larger than my little finger? If those moons could get into the right position to cause an apocolypse, the only life that could survive would be things like...water bears (very small, very, VERY tough). And I've never seen a world with so many V's!

And such a large dragon life form? That alone would be enough to eat all life larger than my hand even before the moons cause an apocalypse (assuming they're capable of reproducing). But, such large creatures on a hot continent would die of heat in a very short amount of time. Then again, nearly everything else would, too.

Hmmm, that sounded a bit cruel.

I'm wondering how a traditionally-sized dragon finds enough to eat. Surely, the inhabitants of an entire village aren't enough to keep a huge beast alive for two centuries, even if it is cold-blooded and sleeps the whole time.

Dikiyoba.

Any dragon worth its wings would know some summoning magic. Hence, summon a huge flock of sheep and go to town. Of course, with larger than average dragons, this wouldn't work nearly as well. I'm also going to guess that there are more dragons around than usual (just judging from the apparent themes of the planet), so this would be even less possible.

You could probably just assume magic, but then I'd think that the seven moons would make said magic unpredictable, resulting in a lot of spontaneously combusting dragons.

Magic is tidal now?

If you can't just handwave dragons or make them run on magic, both of which are common excuses, the only answer is to make them run on inorganic fuel. Maybe they hook themselves up to volcanos and run on geothermal power. Maybe they're walking, talking, fire-breathing nuclear reactors.

Well, it seems to be a relatively common theme in fantasy... kinda hearkening back to astrology, really. And besides, if these moons have the power to cause apocalyptic tides, I expect that their gravitational pulls combined would do interesting things to the rest of the planet as well, including the forces of magic.

Mankind lived through the apocalyptic meteor collision 60 million years ago, despite it having the strength to kill off the dinosaurs and the nuclear winter that followed....what's keeping anyone from living through a flood?

True... except that "mankind" at that time was a tiny species of shrew-like mammals, with noticeably lower metabolic requirements than the modern McDonalds' customer today.

We're lucky our ancestors were tiny.

the reason with the many Vs is becuase that is what the planets denizens call it, naturally they would want to associate there minor objects and places with incredible majestic grandness of their planet.

I don't see what that would have to do with it... I mean, it's not like that happens on Earth.

Because large life needs a lot of small life to eat. What are the dragons eating, here? What on earth is superficial meat?!

Please don't double post, arghhhhhhhhh. (I'm getting a feeling of deja vu)
