The legend of Long Mu (龍母) is an old Chinese story about filial piety featuring a girl of little means who manages to raise five dragons, who end up taking care of her until she dies. The legend inspired me to craft Lonomo, a story set in an alternative imperial China, where dragons, people, and other creatures keep a spiritual balance through elemental science.
I began working on this story by literally building its world bit by bit, starting with an isometric grid map of the main characters' dwellings.
Additional information is added along the way, such as the thoughts below on how different elemental types of dragons would relate to their surroundings, and how a dragon biologist might go about learning about them.
This is a passion project that I will slowely be adding to in the future. My hope is that I will one day be able to turn it into a comic or small game that will allow players to discover and enjoy this world at their own pace.
