Lets make a waterworld fantasy setting.

The world of Avsabor is several times larger than earth, with the surface mostly being covered in water that is hundreds of kilometers deep at some places, with the pressure being so immense at some places that the water is compressed into ice. The Super ocean is teaming with all manner of sea life. However, it also hides powerful sea monsters, the deeper you go, the bigger and scarier they get.
There are islands here and there however.
There are megastorms, with winds that can break the sound barrier, and massive waves as big as mountains.

Humans evovled on Bastion, the biggest island in the world, at the size of australia. All sapient races use ships (submarines too), but humanitys are the biggest and the most advanced. Their strides in technology has led to an era of wealth and colonization.

The Mermen, are a race that evovled underwater, and have the biggest connection to magic. There is Blue magic for example, harnessing the powers of the ocean to your will. The Merman have blue skin with the lower body of a fish, pointed ears, and webbed hands and feet. Every Merman/woman has the ability to change their lower body to a humaniod one in order to travel on land. They had a mighty undersea empire, but a great civil war has lead to its collaspe. Mermen have recently found themselves enslaved by humans and made to work on island plantations.

The Razors are a huge species of humaniod sharks, with inherent physical prowess beyond other races. They lack a centralized government, many being marauding bands of pirates and warlords. They eat eachother and their enemies after killing them, as a tradition.

The Salsir are a race of humanoid Octopuses, gifted with natrual high intelligence. Driven with a desire to create and expand their knowledge, the Salsir are credited with many inventions, such as the skyship.

The deep ones lurk in the darkest depths. An eldritch and mysteroius race, they are believed to be a myth. However, these beings sometimes make dealings with mortals...

First for this Thread while each poster adds to the setting by posting facts and then building off of the facts each poster posts I would really like Omakes to be written about this setting in the Thread as we go on. Be creative and have it be in universe documents if you want or something else. I just think it would lead to more investment into the setting and fun for everyone while also giving us a chance to show off and improve our writing.

Second rule you can disagree with what someone has written but you must explain why and they in turn must engage with you on the issue. Civil discussion from both parties to come to the best compromise.

Credit for these rules go to @The Dark God

Double credit goes to @TheBlueHour for me copying them from him and if he copied those rules from another person he has to credit them and if they copied someone repeat until we get to the origin of these rules to give final credit.

Make the humans more than ppls that go around trying to improve their technology and... make merwomen slaves? I would suggest that some humans believe the current structure is wrong and participate in non-violent protest of the wealthy's colonization and slavery by... I dunno, freeing slaves secretly and not supporting when they just put themselves in a new place w/o anyone's agreeing?

Legal battles as well as establishing safe haven under the laws and regulations of slavery?

Ok, i got kinda grossed out by 'regulating slavery' it seems like... if someone wanna be someone's slave/servant/whatevs... they can make a contract between themselves i guess? And then how would legal battles work in a society that condones slavery and colonization? i guess someone who can do something about it may rise up someday. Safe Havens? That'd be cool, what are those? i only see 'slavery' as a temporary solution to homelessness, surviving when you can't on your own. making it legal seems like it would lead to Mistresses calling the cops on slaves to 'bring them back' if they wanna leave or whatevs, or making them work harder with no pay 'cause it's legal meow? i dunno. i happen to enjoy following a woman's every order so it's a complicated thing. ^_^

If you can't get rid of slavery yet work on placing laws and rules on treatment of slaves and how you can get them. As for safe havens areas where slavery is illegal.

Okay, since I kinda have experiences with this kinda thing, I'd like to see rules where someone's 'property' is treated with at least a lil human dignity, like if they get injured they can get medical treatments, make it so they can't pressure destitute families into selling their children, make the Masters and Mistresses responsible to the law if they abuse a slave and she don't like it like I do... how to 'get' them? I dunno that part ppls always came to me. I dunno tho do the slaves even wanna be ruled over? You... cannot discuss rules about slaves if the slaves refuse to make rules for themselves.

Of course the Slaves don't want to be ruled over. However if you as a third party threaten and pursue enough political captial you can force Slavers to have to abide by rules or laws or and this is where the implication of creating a level of chaos that would be disaterous is used. Basically a compomise on both sides so it does not erupt into open war.
But I am not a expert on historical slavery in it's many forms so this is me sprouting bullshit to be honest.

Well, I'm no expert either, yet I do know what it is to be someone's pet. It's fun and all. Anyway I suppose if your fantasy setting must have slavery then at least... try to portray the slaves as real peoples and not like sexy girlfriends or... sexy laborers. They have their own inner lives and may even care for peoples other than their Master or Mistress too. They still care for her or him obviously, just like, they may have friends or fams or who knows? I just would rather not read about a fantasy place where like everything is terrible 24/7 it would make me wanna cry.

Its slavery. Sexy is not a word that really goes with it except if it's a erotica novel.

Um, sorry, that's my word for like, 'things that ppls like in a fantasy kind of way?' i guess? 'cause if you read about how some ppls describe slavery it's very romanticized to the point where the slaves are literally like 'companions' that have to do chores, be emotional support for their Mistress, and... the nsfw erotica stuffs all in one. sooo i've seen it, i dunno how Sarcobite plans to portray it, i've just seen a lot of ppls try to make slavery look sexy. and it's wrong i guess? i dunno. i've done tons of unpaid chores and emotional supports and stuffs i'm not gonna chat about. and then fiction writers try to make it look cute.

i'm done discussing this now. unless ppls wanna say something else to me.

I will take your word for it but the only serious not porn logic books I know that do it like that is Gor. And Gor is really bad.

No romantized slavery. @sneakykitten the image i was going for was enslaved natives and afircans, and its gonna be portrayed as bad.
You actually can make slavery less shitty. Look at the Roman or other models that have rules and certain rights for the slaves. Note it's still fucked up and monstrosrus but slightly less so then the North West Passage version.
