Strange Things You've Had to Research for Your Writing

Ooo interesting list! I get the vibe your story is set in a less technologically developed timeframe. I love that attention to detail. And genetics is huge! I be like “so how’s your baby have blue eyes when nobody has that gene” :joy:. And ooo more torture methods XD.

The genetics is actually because I have a kind of magical lineage and 7 subspecies of humans, so I had to almost build my own genealogy. Which was awesome. Torture techniques are… well, pretty self explanatory, I think.

I had to research how fast a person can go from one city to another riding a horse through the desert.
Plus some historical research about the Assassins from the 12th century. How they kill, who they kill, what weapons they used,…

Maybe that’s not weird though haha :smiley:

This is like calling Dutch and German the same thing. I am displeased with you, Tanya.

Gems and metals are very different. Sure, they are technically the same composites, but gems are way cooler. I do have one bit of bismuth, though, because that one is multi-coloured and has cool shapes

Not sure if strange, but I did read up on the weird condition where you can’t feel pain. Sure is a good thing that Umbrum never had a childhood.
