    Don't tempt the person with really poor dexterity and fine muscle control with something that could be endless fun and lead to hilarity :p

    @Ewok Poet I'm not entirely sure the links you just posted belong in this thread [face_dunno] Wouldn't the Medium link be better placed in the OTP thread? As for the three Twitter accounts, I'm not too sure where they'd belong at all since they come across as just random thoughts; maybe the Plot Bunny thread?

    @Briannakin @mavjade what do you think?

    I can see it going either way. It's not really the same as most of the links in this thread, and it might be better suited to a discussion thread where the ideas can be translated to writing such relationships. On the other hand people might find it useful for writing romance, especially a more subtle romance. As the thread host, where to draw the line is up to you.

    This, basically. :)

    Do what you like, it's your thread. I will be A-OK with whatever you choose.

    Thanks @mavjade! I think it's best to stick to generic tools and resources for this thread, as it could easily find itself overlapping with every other thread in resource. I saw that @Ewok Poet already cross-posted the link to the OTP thread, so it's all sorted out anyway.

    Idk if anyone's posted this yet, but here's a very cool name generator.

    https://www.fantasynamegenerators.com/

    I found this while looking for Dark Elf names for an Elder Scrolls RPG I was making. It has quite a few Star Wars races as well, and it has a city name generator and a ship name generator as well.

    For you who want to use dinosaurs in your fic but don't want to use their scientific names so do the Dungeons & Dragons setting Eberron have some alternative names for some dinosaurs http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/Dinosaur#Species

    The youtuber Shadiversity have a video series called Fantasy Re-Armed where he describe "What are the best and most practical REAL medieval weapons each of the classic fantasy races would use based on their physical characteristics?" and I thought that his discussions could be of inspiration for anybody trying to arm a non-human culture or person.

    This thread could be useful: IU GFFA University Lecture Topics

    This page discuss ecopolis (city planets and mega cities) from a semi scientific point, it's originally for Warhammer 40k but the way the guy talk about it makes it useful for SW and other SF-universes.

    B.t.w. @Chyntuck now when you are back, maybe you should update the list in the OP

    this site maybe could be useful http://www.technovelgy.com/ it's a collection of articles on inventions, technology and ideas of science fiction writers, with comments of similar tech in other books and/or real life. If nothing else its good for inspiration.

    It does stipulate "real", so unless you can find a way to weaponise Komodo Dragons, or believe that the fiery ones were/are real, that may be why they were not included.

    Though, like Gamiel says, they can be awesome.

    Context: Shadiversity kind of has his own little fandom. "What about dragons?" Is a Shadiversity fandom thing.

    Also, Shadiversity do have two videos where he talk about dragons: Best REAL medieval weapons to use against DRAGONS and What medieval weapons would dragon riders really use?

    Truth. However, I think that now would be a good time to find something different to share, before someone accuses us of allowing Shadiversity to hold this thread hostage. [face_laugh]
