I've been thinking how to describe this: In setting up a Lewis Carroll reference
, I used a Star Wars
reference. Dropping in Star Wars
directly seemed a bit heavy-handed, so I brought in the Far Away Land
equivalent. Notwithstanding that I talked about the FAL creature, I kept thinking about SW associated species and also about unique FAL beings.
Now I'd like to develop the region further, indirectly using both of these influences, though not literally importing them.
The balbergulbness (domain of the balbergulbs), then, resembles Hutt Space by the presence of several more or less exploited client species, including human colonists, and resembles Far Away Land
by the intrusion or bordering presence of various bizarre beings
In Star*Drive, I wanted to find a spot that could have remained a frontier and a limit to human influence for a long time, but on the other hand not shifted greatly due to GW II, and that set up a suitable relationship between the former Carpenters and my Far Reach ideas. One possibility might lie outside the edge of Hatire space, a nation that has grown slowly but remained relatively stable. The humans interacting with balbergulbs would have been independents from the beginning, constantly displaced outwards by their disagreement with the expanding and solidifying Thuldan and Hatire dominions.
