I recently posted a worldbuilding question on this stackexchange about a magic system I am trying to develop, and realize now that it would be better posted in a place like a forum, where the conversation could range back and forth down the thread.

So my new question is: Is there a very active worldbuilding forum or other conversational venue appropriate for a thread on developing a magic system for a fictional modern world?

    $\begingroup$ I would recommend trying out the sub-reddit for worldbuilding. Please remember that in both this site and on reddit, its normal users offering you advice. They are not paid to do so, so don't go in expecting to post a question and getting back an amazing answer without working with the people who take the time to reply to you. $\endgroup$ – Shadowzee Dec 12 '18 at 1:47

    $\begingroup$ @Sindyr The replies on reddit are more suitable to conversation and answers, so you might get your problem magically solved, but you can also have a proper discussion. You might also try the Chat rooms we have here (I don't know the link to it) or maybe try and find a discord for worldbuilders if you are just looking to chat. $\endgroup$ – Shadowzee Dec 12 '18 at 2:08

    $\begingroup$ We allow questions asking for resources; we even have a tag for it. How is this not on-topic for main? $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Dec 12 '18 at 18:21

    $\begingroup$ Isn't it also a list question? $\endgroup$ – TGar Dec 13 '18 at 11:07

There are many!

Those are the main ones, and there are certainly other highly specialised forums as well.


In addition to the other suggestions you can always try worldbuilding's chat on this very website: http://chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/17213/the-factory-floor

You're always welcome to discuss ideas and ask for suggestions there so long as you have the 20 rep needed to post.
