I want to make my worlds version of the periodic table but I’m not sure how. I’m not too good when it comes to science but I’ve been creating metals, gems and flora lately and thought ‘there would elements that would make up these things, what would they be?’
I don’t care about realism, since I’m thinking just straight up ‘magic’ might go on there and there would also be a lot of metals, as well as some normal earth elements light hydrogen, oxygen and maybe some others I can’t think of right now. But other than that I’m not sure what else to do, how do I organize it? What other elements should I keep in mind or create myself? What classifies as an element and what doesn’t?
I’ve tried to look at the real periodic table for inspiration but it just confuses me.
