WAWAA 2024: Worst of World Anvil April 2024

oh no
  Alright. We've all seen the best of WorldAnvil awards that're happening right now. But that's like, a lot of effort and stuff.   You know the drill (or if you don't then you will). This is the opposite. This is the WORST. But this ain't for your existing stuff, no. That's probably actually good, stop telling yourself it's bad. That's called 'putting yourself down' and it really isn't going to help your confidence as a writer. Wait, am I being serious? Shit. That wasn't the plan.   Anyway. It's April 1st, so let's do something ridiculous. Over the next month, write me your WORST worldbuilding. And I mean in the silly way, not the 'gets you put on a list and arrested' kind of way. Keep this lighthearted. Be NSFW if you like, just tag the articles appropriately. Only enter your own work, obviously. Articles have a minimum of 300 words and at least one picture, preferably a deep-fried JPG. Freemen, you're at a disadvantage in this because you don't have CSS to make the articles truly awful. This doesn't mean you can't win. Break your BBCode. Upload the weirdest, most tumblr-esque GIFs you can. Write the most strange worldbuilding you've ever written.   Bonus points will be given for art you've made yourself (e.g. not with AI), because come on. This is a silly challenge! You can almost certainly open MS Paint and create something abysmal.   I have one requirement: this still has to be worldbuilding. You've still got to be adding something to your world, even if it's just a joke. Make it silly, make it ridiculous, delete it as soon as the results come out, I don't care. But make *something*, and make it fucking hilariously awful. Do it for your inner 3 year old who insisted that people don't have necks or whatever. Do it for your inner 15 year old who giggles over the words 'bad dragon'. Do it for me, because god damn it, I want some ridiculous stuff to read and make fun of! Yes, you can make it as hard to read as possible. No limits on that.  


  WELL DONE I'M PROUD OF YOU!!! Post it in the comments, preferably as an articleblock. When it hits May 1st in most people's timezones, I'll start looking through entries and pick a winner. Winner gets some """""nice""""" JPG art from yours truly and maybe something else, who knows? We'll find out. This is for the fun of it, anyway.   oh right this is a belated addition IT'S WAWAA BECAUSE WORST ARTICLES OF WORLD ANVIL APRIL LMAO

This is so hilarious. Even though it's easy to read, you already have my vote for WA's Golden Raspberry.

I accept the challenge of creating a non-CSS ugly article. I present to you the ranting of my world chronicler on her last spoon. It's not really all that ugly yet, but I will make it better worse as the month goes on. (I also promise to add art, but that will take some time.)

And I swear every time I think I've wrung all I can out of it, I discover a new evil thing I can make BBCode do. For instance, I've just realized there appears to be no limit to how tiny I can make my text be.

Ok... You got me, and I had to stir myself to contribute - but I'm not in the horrible CSS article running - I cannot begin to compete with you masters of graphic arts as I am virtually illiterate in CSS. Instead, I focused on creating the most ludicrous organization I could think of that would still be helpful for story telling in my world - well except for the kingdom of the Saa-Maki, but I already made them. Original artwork for Rams Horn is in process, and the article will be updated in about a week :-) THANK YOU Han for this silly adventure! It made my month much brighter...

My eyes and ears both burn whenever I look at this. Must be some sort of placebo conditioning effect.
