Summer Camp 2020

Summer Camp 2020 - as I put this article in place I’m really not sure how I will approach the challenge of 33 more or less completed articles in 31 days. My intention is to use it to flesh out the Drakiss cultures of Senteru and Morton which I've touched on in WorldEmber and some of this year's work.


So... unless I decide otherwise when the prompts come out, where the prompts refer to your world, I’ll take that as being the Drakiss cultures of those two locations.


Broadly speaking, my objectives for this year's Summer Camp are:

  • To write around 20,000 words (limit myself from last year, to try to put some focus on the looking at other people's work)
  • To develop the culture of the drakiss.
  • To encourage others. Constructive feedback to at least 30 articles.
  • To stretch my use of World Anvil for formatting and presenting. To inflict my poor art on the community and to dip further into CSS.
  • To have fun while doing the above.
