You know, I really like the idea of a fantastical world where the world is a big focus, but

Where instead of anybody worshipping any kind of nature god or natural force or source of magic or ANYTHING like that, everything is framed in terms of the hard work and ingenuity of ordinary people

Like, ordinary people created the categories of magic in use today and the concept of magic itself as like an innovative invention and somehow established the world itself as a grand fantastic place for future generations to delight in according to a vision of what would be a cool world to live in with a wide range of possibilities

Kinda like the popular romanticised legend of how America came to be I guess but more generalised

I’d have to figure out what they started from because that’s a little unclear to me but this sure is an idea
