Chuck Wendig of Terrible Minds has issued a challenge.  He wants to collaboratively build a world.

The rules are pretty simple (go to his site and see!)  As a GM and a writer, I am very intrigued by this idea. I have decided to participate. The entries are in the comments and BOY! are there some really good ideas.
I’m so excited! I can’t wait to see what all comes out of this. 🙂

Here’s what I wrote:

Blackbloom. Hmm.

The planet is home to two sentient races. One is a human-like people. They call themselves the Watu. They are an intellectually and technologically advanced people.
The other race are darkly opalescent energy creatures. These number far less than the Watu. They call themselves Roho. Not much is known about them, except their claim that they have always been there.

The sun is blue dwarf star that has swirling, black energies coruscating across its surface. Every three thousand years these energies flare, enveloping the planet and killing almost the entire Watu population. Those who are left are plunged back into a savage hunter-gatherer status. And the Roho guide them back (again) to their previous intellectually and technologically advanced society.

The Watu have no idea about the star’s destructive tendencies. But the Roho do.
They always have.
