Worldember 2023 Homework

Another year, another worldember

Area of Focus

For Worldember 2023 I will be coming back to Magic Earth, my urban fantasy alternate history world. Some time ago I started planning a story in it and want to use Worldember to work on worldbuilding specific to this story. The story is titled "Journal of Magical Travels" and is about a couple of magic users who travel the world, observe magical traditions and write about them in their journal. During Worldember 2023 I would like to develop more magical traditions from many places around the world. I will both adapt real life traditions to add a magical component as well as create completely new ones.



For now most of my worldbuilding in Magic Earth is focused on Europe, so I will probably focus on it here. I would like to venture to other continents, but it will require a lot of research to do it right and in a respectful way.


  • worldbuilding for a novel
  • I will have more worldbuilding in the world

  • Inspiration

    My main source of inspiration for Worldember 2023 will be real-life traditions and customs. In some cases I will explore how they would look in a world with magic and in other I will create completely new traditions.
