Contentstorm 2023 in The Sea of Starlight | World Anvil

Contentstorm 2023

Due to a misinterpretation of the rules, I have decided to not partake in WorldEmber this year, and return my 'most written' badge of Last Year's WorldEmber. However, I've decided to use this month in a similar fashion by creating as much content as I can, unrestricted by any rules.


After finishing a 5 year campaign that took place in Wolfsbrunn, I'm almost ready to move on to the next place in my world. I'd like to finish Wolfsbrunn out a bit further, just to get that location completely rounded out. The characters did not visit every place I had in mind or prepared, and it allows for some fun extra worldbuilding which may be used in another adventure!
  My main focus however, will probably be the location of the new campaign, which will be the jungle continent of Azuno. During Summer Camp 2023 I also wrote a bunch about this continent, which gave a solid base to start the campaign and continue writing. Now it is time for more worldbuilding and detailing. The base idea is that this continent is extremely influenced by wild magic, which allows for great variation and whacky things to be created. I'm also trying to keep the landscape of this area of my world varied, which hopefully creates themes within the theme, so that it is not just a magical forest as far as the eye can see.    


I've got a huge list of ideas, prompts and of course magic items I'd like to write and detail before the end of the year. The plan is to have a bunch of content I can illustrate in 2024. But perhaps I'll also draw some things here and there. In any case I will need to illustrate 12 items for my patrons, so those will definitely be included.
