Week 3 of 2020 Summer Camp

Another week of Summer Camp, another week I am creating a list of my favourite articles that I have read on each prompt. In Week 1 of 2020 Summer Camp I explained my reasoning behind making this article, in case you want to know more.   I hope you all find plenty of inspiration in the articles below. But if reading articles of others is not quite enough, have a look at this awesome resource compiled by members of the community. If you are stuck with a prompt, I definitely recommend checking it out.  

Prompt 15: Describe an elite or highly specialised military unit in your world.

 

Prompt 16: Write about a material that is considered sacred or culturally crucial in your world.

 

Prompt 17: Describe a common old wives' tale or consipracy theory from a region of your world. Does it hold any truth?

 

Prompt 18: Write about the events of a devastating natural disaster in your world, either past or present.

    Disclaimer
    These are the prompts I read and inspired me one way or another: either through their writing, the topic chosen to cover a specific prompt...   I do have a preference for "historical" fantasy settings, so you will not find a lot of modern (fantasy or not) or sci-fi articles. It is my own bias, but I wanted to clarify the "rarity" of certain genres within the list...   I also read prompts mostly on their "day" (eg: I read entries for prompt number 21 on the 21st of July). That means that I will miss many people's entries. When I've had time, I have read other entries and added them to the list. But time is limited, so this is not feasible for most prompts.
