In general, this is what I have waited years for! Felarya finally being developed again and the gears of imagination once again moving along! You see (and this just being overall of course) I see Felarya as an ideal, well-developed, intriguing world of fantasy and mystery! Kind of like Indiana Jones meets LOTR meets D&D meets GTA (especially in Negav). It is a land full of adventure, discovery, danger, and treasures! Many kinds of unique and diverse cultures live there! Of course, the vore and giantess aspects are a big draw to me as well, and serve to make the world much more exciting, vibrant and dangerous! Especially since I often think of the smaller, non-character animals and preds.

To me, Felarya feels like the place your grandfather who dissapeared mysteriously could have ended up, and still be alive there thanks to anti-aging. It seems like the place you might find a map of in your attic, as well as instructions on how to access the world, like the beginning of a grand adventure! I suppose that is what I like most, the adventure, history and lore along with the vore and giantess aspects really help to make it my favorite fantasy world, and for me, that is saying quite a lot! (Even despite the dangers, I would go there in a heartbeat!)

(I don't have the time to reply in full at the moment, but I hope that was enough to get my point across.)

I'm not dead, I'm not dead. Running around and planning a manga really was kinda draining to be honest. My respect for mangakas and comic artists were raised even higher. But I digress...

I for one would really like to learn about the everyday life around the various cities and polities in Felarya. For example, the everyday life of a citizen in Negav, a snippet or two about mercenaries having fun inside their own taverns, y'know, small things that flesh up the world. Though as of late I still have a couple of writing projects, I am willing to write a snippet thread about daily life and whatnot.

It may or may not be done after finishing research, my knowledge in Felarya had gone rusty due to inactivity.

EDIT: Also, I do hope we could have a unified canon of sorts, some stories perhaps that can be really considered as 'canon' within the universe, because it's a pain in the ass to write something without knowing what the hell is happening. I tried.

That would be a good idea. Another thing I've always pushed for are stories that people tell their children. Myths and Legends within the mythos of Felarya itself. If you do that too, it'll also really help Felarya seem more alive.

I'm not sure how we could do that, but it would be ideal. Currently, the rule is that stories are accepted into the Felaryan group gallery on deviantArt only if they are compatible with canon, but that doesn't automatically make them canon themselves.

Any events referred to in the wiki, though, are canon.

not the full story though is it?

The rule is that stories are accepted into the felaryan group gallery on deviantarft only if they are compatble with canon, but that doesn't automatically make them canon themselves.

And the events refered to in the wiki were suggestions in the forum that Karbo picked on a whim based on absolutely no criteria, it all comes down to how Karbo was feeling on that one day or whenever or not your one of his favorites given that he clearly plays favorites.

After looking over this topic and everything thatís been said a couple of times now, I think Iím ready to post a reply. I will largely be talking to Karbo directly, but obviously donít let that discourage you from posting about my thoughts; this is a forum after all.

From what Iíve seen, there are plenty of people who would like to see the world of Felarya continue to grow and inspire others to write and draw for it. I am most certainly one of them. Felarya is an idea that has brought together a massive community of people who have artistic wants and desires that they canít find anywhere else. You created this world Karbo; you set the train in motion. With your guidelines that you laid down years ago, Felarya has expanded in fantastic ways you never expected. Though you were reluctant about sharing your world with all of us, I can guess that you liked how it turned out.

Despite all of the worldís success, from what I gather from the forum, your presence diminished far too severely. With the main creator of Felarya absent from discussion, Felarya lost its direction. Without you keeping up with the ideas mixed into your world, the ideas got too backed up, which destroyed the enthusiasm of many Felarya writers. Your guidance was gone. Sure you got in contact with a few Felaryan writers, did some collaborations and all that, but the actual story of Felarya was neglected. It was here in this neglect where I believe many of the forumís current problems originate from.

There is only one person who can say what is and is not part of your world: you Karbo. You wrote the main stories; you drew the first, wonderful, beautiful pieces of art; you allowed your community (the greatest percentage of them likely into vore, myself included) to have a happy little world to participate in and dream about.

In my opinion, the manga is your best work. When I read the manga, I was so captivated by it that it was the only thing I could think about for days. I would have daydreams about Felaryaís inhabitants, their lives and stories, the interactions they made with others; your stories left an impact on me that I will never forget.

Which is where I make my main stance: the storytelling has been absent for far too long.

The manga left off on a cliffhanger, your heartfelt, tear-jerking story on a painfully long pause, your storytelling absent. You continued to post your latest works occasionally to let us all know that you havenít completely fallen off the map. While the art pieces were welcomed and wanted, Portalboat said it well: ďIt's not that art can't tell these stories, but they only ever show a single scene, frozen in time. And in a world, things change, things grow, things die...a world has to be put into motion, first, before it can be pushed along.Ē

To restate: in my opinion, Felarya grew out of control because you werenít controlling it. Artists contributing to the world were allowed too much room to roam; meaning drastically different opinions between said artists pulled Felarya in too many directions. This ultimately drove the latest nail into the coffin, killing off most participants on this forum.

You have admitted that this is your fault, and there are few on here that will deny that statement, but thatís not the most important thing youíve said. What you also said is that you want to relight the fires that once roared in these forums. You want to see your world flourish like it did before. With all thatís been said here in this topic alone, you know how that can be accomplished: participation. Continue with Felaryaís story and lore; develop them further; seek out those writing for your world; accept and deny appropriately the stories laid before you; reinstall yourself as Felaryaís main storyteller.

The best way I see to go about this is to finish the Manga. Your fans have been anxiously awaiting the next chapter for years now. We all want to see what happens next to Lea, Anna, Vivian, and of course your famous, adorable vore mascot Crisis. A correlation probably exists between the last time you personally wrote a good Felaryan story and the diminishing of your fanbase. Othersí writings were originally based off of your own, so is it too inconceivable to think that if you began to write again that others would soon board the train and write their own stories as well? Felarya has been lacking solid events and timelines for a very long time now. If this world is to continue, which it has EVERY POSSIBILITY OF DOING SO, it will start with your stories.

Now this suggestion may be a bit more self-serving on my part, as my primary desire is to read about what happens next to Lea and her little sphere of happiness. The ways that tale could play out have driven me crazy, and I really, really want a resolution. But I canít help the way I feel. After all, itís just another thing thatís your fault:

I love Felarya. The world you created is a perfect and serene dreamscape for me. No other world comes close to the majesty that you built. I would happily go there without a second thought: an idea that Iím happy to see is not just my own (looking at you dragon808tr). The characters and their interactions are beautiful and moving. The feelings they have towards one another were obviously crafted carefully and lovingly. You built my paradise.

AND THE VORE!!!!! Arguably the main reason any of this even exists! Karbo, you were the one who first showed me that I was in to vore; I knew I was before I even knew what it was called, but you were the one who first introduced me to its wonders. Your take on vore specifically has me entranced: giant, beautiful, usually topless women of many varieties and races swallowing their victims whole. No blood, no gore. That is perfect.

Now I need to stop typing. There are too many points in this response. Bottom line Karbo, I too want to see this world youíve made thrive. I think the best way to do that is to continue the story.

To write again.

The disorganization of ideas of your fans may slightly improve by itself if you do.

^ All of this. I couldn't write a better response myself and all his points are the ones I would make. As I may have stated before, I would respect Karbo if he wished to end the story there, since i'm sure the more vore based slice of life comics sell better. Though if he did choose to do so, I'd at least like for a short description as to how the manga story ends. Does Lea kill Lady Lesona to break the curse? Does Lea die? What was that artifact so sought after by Lesona? These have been bugging me for years. (and also, to see what happens to Subeta and marken exploring the temple? Since we have yet to see much of Felarya's temples.)

Also, while being bored/depressed most of these days, I have returned to my muse, the Felarya wiki. There I found a healthy amount of characters with short descriptions, but no backstory. Especially amoung the most exciting group, the Magiocrats. Lord Thelandros (the leader) has the most written about him, seemingly authored by karbo himself, but the others have short descriptions or none at all, leaving so much potential open. Also, I am interested to learn more about the Vitishmals, since I currently see them as a much more friendly version of the Combine. Additionally, there are so many other things that could use development around the wiki, even small things or characters that aren't used.
