My Worldember Pledge 2022 in Hallowed Legacy | World Anvil

My Worldember Pledge 2022

I, Ellysium, pledge to write 10,000 words of worldbuilding in December of 2022
— Ellysium, builder of worlds, setter of too many goals
  It's the most wonderful time of the year! When all the beautiful, crazy worldbuilders come together in a frenzy of writing and creativity. Last year went well, so I'm hoping this year will be just as successful!    

Worldember 2022 Goals

This year, I'd like to focus on filling in details of the worlds I use most for my role-playing games and to help with the second draft of my Nanowrimo novel. So I have the new primary world of Linndorcha and several important people and places in Shira'tol and the Lost Stars.  

Planned Articles

  • Talvinen, the Lands of Winter
  • The Veiled Court
  • Gwyn
  • Mirrors of Truth
  • Gan Realt, the Starless Kingdom
  • Agrona, Queen of Talvinen
  • The Huntsmen
  • Factotum, Clockwork Dolls
  • Mirror Guardians
  • Damon, the Crownless Prince
  • Glamours
  • Quicksilver
  •   That should be more than enough to reach my goal, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't set a whole bunch of...  

    Stretch Goals

    With several tabletop role-playing games going at the same time, there are several areas of Shira'tol and the Lost Stars that need some details worked out.  


  • The Tollers
  • The Dark Seed
  • Rohar, Mistress of Death
  • Blodvegg
  • End Watch
  • Ballast Bell
  • The Lost Stars

  • Fox Fire
  • The End of the Line
  • Solar Gates
  • The Golden Empire
  • The Dreamers
  • Anomalous


    Linndorcha is one of the main worlds on a new branch of Hallowed Legacy's world tree. But I will be focusing on the areas involved in my novel which are the human kingdoms, their culture and magic, and the Dwarven Realms.   Mirror Mirror is a dark fantasy, and the themes of Linndorcha follow many of the literary themes found in dark and grimdark stories such as;  
  • Dark Worlds
  • Hopelessness and Dread
  • Supernatural Creatures
  • Beauty in Darkness, Corruption in Light
  • Fear and the Unknown
  •   One of the biggest influences for this story and setting are the Souls games. Dark Souls, Bloodborne, and Elden Ring are all good examples of the mood I want to create.


    The world of Linndorcha is very influenced by grimdark settings such as Dark Souls and other Souls-like games. I draw a lot of visual inspiration from these and that is the mood I hope to really capture with this world.
