"A Character who prefers to lurk in the shadows"
Miss Royenne is the most eligible party in Nélannie! Always simple & demure, with a witty repartee ready, setting all trends & making envious, yet even without participating in politics herself she cannot be rid of the shadow cast by her Dark family.
"a character who excels in manipulating others"
Another dip into the Thirteen Realms, but a different perspective. It is interesting to read Porcil in comparison to Mahen. But a great example again of divine rumors becoming world lore. Love it how something as simple as a travelers tale can come from entertainment more than malice.
Oscar Diggs was the first Wizard of Oz, a title he preferred to “Emperor” because it suggested the idea of a magical birthright—and because spellcraft and sorcery were far more respected in Eden than the brute force of imperial aggression.
"a character driven by wanderlust or the desire to explore"
Moonlight Bard doing the awesome of linking all 42 articles of SC together. My first toe dip into the wondrous Argentii worldlore and it seems Satyan Windblown is a bit of an overachiever and loves to wonder and learn pretty much anything. But almost kinda feels like maybe he's running from something? Similar themes of family drama I think gives this character the reason to be filled with wanderlust. Diving into Construs and learning about Brielle Aramys and love seeing the reflections of a forest as a cage. How a bird could see something like forest as something more akin to a prison in comparison to a horse. And running along with the theme, it seems all those that wander do it because their family is full of dinks... This world seems fascinating though. Wrapping up with X'anthia, Anna Omis turned from a character with wanderlust to an almost sweet selfhomage of the writer. This article is sweet in the sense you can tell she's writing from a place of personal growth and understanding, makes you care about Anna. Also uses most of the main formatting features in WA and just looks great!
Now What?Well a lot of these were way shorter than my SC23 Chonkers. I did BIG articles I realize in comparison to others and while I'm accoplished I'm in awe of the less is more and what you can do with different articles types and editing to tell the story to your world and characters.
My Entries for the CategoriesMy character who hides in the shadows kinda became a socialite Batman. It's wonderful but weird. I knew going into things that Crafton Cove would have a dicey history with humanity. The Krayvuk Church composed mainly of the Cerebrayl (Mindflayers)and human, typicall controlled by Skree have a large fued. This has spread and as a result made nessecary for humans to need a freedom fighter and a bonus SC article (a crime syndicate to keep things going). I knew that Haught Crafton was a very Henry Ford kinda chracter who did something amazing engineering wise while also believing a lot of gross rasict bs. So making Vaela and the Sunbreese family this beacon of light for the shadows was fun.
"In the shadows, I find my voice - a whisper that echoes through the city's heart, guiding its rhythm from the depths of darkness." - Vaela Sunbreeze
The Sunbreeze Syndicate
" Crafton Cove, a city adorned with wonders, holds more than meets the eye. Amongst the glistening spires and bustling streets, a clandestine power thrives, shaping the destiny of the city. Welcome to the enigmatic realm of the Sunbreeze Syndicate."
So while Haught Crafton the 4th isn't racist and this generation of Craftons has kinda taken off, their first cousin is running their company and still being an anti-human dink. Evander was an interesting article to write because he's doing what he thinks is best, but if he just talked with anyone outside his circle he'd see he's in the wrong. Of course that never happens, so he continues manipulating people when he could just ask....
Evander Aelwyn Valensight
"I've seen what the Craftons have achieved, and while they dwell in the past, I yearn for a future that redefines CraftonCo's power and legacy."
While I didn't know her name, the Skyhook and it being a weapon turned delivery system was in my very first Crafton Cove notes. He name took shape soon enough and before I knew it I had this pretty amazing character who is kinda doing a dumb thing right now. I hope she get's a chance to fix it.
Lumynari of the Wanderer Crytezza Crafton
"So, I will continue to wander, guided by the whispers of the wind and the yearning in my heart. For in wandering, I find the freedom to be true to myself, to explore the uncharted territories of both the world and my own soul."
From the ground, I watch in awe as the skyhook orbs soar through the air, guided by the magnetic forces of the canyons. Their spherical forms traverse the vast expanse, carrying the lifeblood of the Kray Providence to distant destinations.
