This page is a hub for Idea Seeds, short, one or two sentence ideas that could expended into longer articles. Seeds are the beginnings of a fictional idea, the first flash of inspiration. It is intended both as a place for users to quickly jot down completely undeveloped ideas that they lack the time (or inclination) to develop and as a starting point for users who want to expand on others' ideas.
Please read the Idea Bank Guidelines for a brief explanation of how to use this page before editing.
Idea Seed List
The current list of idea Seeds.
- Fleet of sentient terraforming ships, initially dispatched by a now-dead race; carrying on in the role of Gods by creating life on various planets.
- A world where fate has been computationally pre-determined, and all humans learn the truth of the absence of free will and of their futures on their eighteenth birthdays.
- An alien race that has active control over its own genetics. Different individuals end up activating different parts of their genome based on their situation/job; creates weird classes/castes.
- Vine Cars: Civilization that lives in massive cliff caverns and moves between them by means of roller-coaster-like cars that move along super strong vines that grow all over the cliff faces.
- An ecosystem on Titan - a new biology based on a methane cycle, i.e. Methanophytes and Methanotrophs.
- Ms. 3: Leader of a shadowy criminal syndicate run almost entirely by transvestites. (Tongue in cheek humor genre).
- Walton Pendergraf: Eccentric Zeppelin billionaire and philanthropist. Known for antics at high-profile events.

- A culture where everyone wears masks and full body coverings in public and faces are seen only in the most intimate circumstances. A series of "unmasked" vigilantes help bring justice to the streets.
- Galvanic Lance: Some sort of electrical weapon that punctures metal. Maybe Voltaic Lance is better.
