Worldbuilding Blog Hop – Day 4: Food, Drinks, Holiday and Culture

I almost forgot about this because I was trying to organize some things. So now it’s 11:30 and I hadn’t done anything productive in regards to this today.

Since my world is based on an Alternate realm of the same and back a few centuries, I figured it would be boring to talk about the food and drinks, since it would be something that you could find today with some alterations. Moonshine is possible, people eat fancy foods like steak and something simple like oatmeal or your basic foods. And it’s all based on the culture of that particular continent.

Let’s talk about Carnivale. In today’s world, Carnivale happens in two places, Brazil and Venice. Carnivale is where everyone breaks out the sequins and feathers and extravagant floats and extravagant foods before Lent where everyone lets their hair down.

In my world, there is no longer a Brazil. The country is named Carnivale and it has spread to beyond the normal barriers. While there is a time when they do have their standard celebrations, twice a year. Once during the second month of the year and another one to celebrate their freedom of country during the ninth month of the year. Carnivale is actually a country of intrigue. It isn’t surprising that there are some deals that take place during the celebrations as well as every day. All the politicians wear masks and disguise themselves. It’s all very cloak and dagger how they can be, while the people who do their day to day lives are unknowing. If there is a place to try to do some political havoc, Carnivale is the place to do it. Just beware because tempers can flare up and they are a passionate people.

  1. I didn’t get to mine until around 10 pm my PST. So, you aren’t alone. Posting every day has been a bit of a challenge for me. But, you got something up, and it’s interesting. Carnivale – I love the name change!

  2. I said before I love the alternative earth settings, this seems like you have quite a lot developed – despite your protests to the contrary πŸ˜‰ – I’m waiting for the excerpt to tie it together πŸ™‚
