I'm building a world - or rather 3 interconnected worlds of cold and ice. The idea is worlds in a snowglobe because of a mis-worded wish of "I wish everything would stay the same forever."
The first might be considered early spring or late fall, where the air temperature is routinely above average, but despite this, the snow never gets a chance to melt. In this world, there is light basically 24/7.
The 2nd is a world where there are quite a few variations of cold, but more routinely at or below average. The light is a lot less.
The 3rd world is a world of darkness. The only light there is the endless expanse of stars and a moon.
So the questions are:
- How would this affect society as a whole? More specifically the areas of commerce, supply/ demand, and who would be in power because of potential shortages (keep in mind that there aren't many crops that do well in winter, and even greenhouses in the 1st world would probably need to be heated)
- How would this affect the creatures and monsters? More spcifically how would the cold affect physiology? How would they adapt to the cold? (I don't think permanently having creatures hibernate would be a good solution.)
- How would this affect the ability to get food?
