My Summer Camp 2021 Worldbuilding Pledge Document

What world are you working on?

Corive! This world! =D
— Lyraine, who is the one speaking in all of these

Which project are your worldbuilding efforts tied to?

I'm still working on stuff related to the Thydian Civil War but really, anything related to the Born Into Power Somehow Campaign is the worldbuilding focus.   If I can continue with trying to write something viewed as "good" about the Order of Speared Light, then that would be great.

Which area of the world(s) are you working on?

Theydim. It's where my players are currently in the setting and they have stuff to do there.   That being said, I can do all the planning and prep work in the world, but unlike WorldEmber, pre-planning exact topics is harder because I have no idea what the prompts will be and what scale their result will be. Maybe it will be a tradition that helps crown a High King, maybe it's a tradition that is only in a small town on the side of nowhere for the campaign.   In general, I get my gears turning to think of stuff that is handy for my campaign, but sometimes it's not as easy.

How much are you aiming to complete?

Going for Copper! I went to Diamond last year, but honestly, I don't expect to do more than copper.

When will you write?

When I'm on stream, the evenings, and whenever else I have time to write.

Who is your support network?

  • The ASC
  • My Players

Organizing my Worldbuilding

Pics or it didn't happen, the blog says? HAHAHAHAHHA! I HAVE 715 ARTICLES AT THE TIME OF THIS WRITING. ahem Anyway, yes, I think my Table of contents is nicely organized
After a long list of articles I'm still sorting out:
To see how this looks, I direct you toooo  

Organizational Layouts

As for how I lay out everything? Well, I have my BBCode Templates. Anything not listed in these is either skipped or kept in the original Template Prompts format because it's stuff like the various drop down menus like on Character, I try to work out which organizations they're associated with so the articles automatically link back and forth to each other. The below spoilers contain the BBCode I use to make articles look like the examples above them. The text looks really ugly because the layout is on Notepad++ and I make use of new lines and tabs to organize "how deep" each section gets, but the end results look quite nice to me.

SummerCamp Release Plan

  • Twitter - Find me here! I'll be using #Worldbuilding and #WorldAnvilSummerCamp or #WASummerCamp
  • Here, World Anvil, through Article Notifications and/or Journal posts about once a week for the Journal Posts and the Prompt Notifications when I hit that 300 word count. Repeat notifications may occur if an article is expanded in a significant manner, but I will not notify articles more than once a day.
  • On stream - I'll certainly be working on a prompt when I'm on stream - Catch me here! For a schedule, you can find me on the ASC page for more details. I will also read articles from others if they spend the channel points.

I really like what you did with compiling your bbcode layouts here (for Homework #2). I hadn't thought of that, but it's something I really should do—especially for characters, a template I want to standardize because I've got so many of them to go back through and fix/update. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks! It was something I had done some time back because I didn't like the placement of the template boxes for my usage (and some of them I don't write as much into them to justify them having a lot of "screen space") so I manually built my own BBCode of how stuff looks like. The actual Notepad++ files are far more organized than how the stuff I posted looks. XD

Thanks! I try to be pretty detailed when doing plans and the like.
