Kat Chiron's Summer Camp 2023 Reading Challenge

  Well I'm very pleased and proud to say I reached my Summer Camp 2023 goal of completing 16 prompts to achieve 'Silver'!   You can find links to all my prompt articles at Summer Camp 2023.   I ended up worldbuilding for a realm that I'd imagined but hadn't written anything for before - Vyrvania, a vampire megalopolis! So if you like vampires, and secrets and intrigue, I'd be happy for you to visit my world Vyrvania. I will continue working on this world after the reading challenge and plan to write some serial fiction for it - so please follow me if you're interested in following me as I breathe 'life' into this new world!!    
  I have chosen the following Summer Camp prompts for my Reading Challenge. I chose them because they were prompts I did not submit and from the Copper and Gold waves, as I completed the least articles for these categories. The 3 articles for each prompt were then chosen at random.  


Species | Nov 30, 2023
Being a cat-lover I enjoyed reading this article and love that they're protectors of the waking realm rather than the breath-stealers of Urban myth! Would like to hear more about this species and in particular, 'His Luna'.
Species | Aug 10, 2023
I was drawn to this article as I think of Raven's as birds of 'omen'. Although the information here suggests that they are mainly considered just a 'common' species that the vnou people don't take much notice of...I feel there are secrets that have yet to be told about them and the affiliation of the noble Zhu'Shpazh family. Looking forward to seeing if anything comes of this feeling....
Species | Mar 7, 2024

A massive psionic bird that's the symbol of resistance on Rada.

The Phoenix...such a magnificent 'mythological' creature. I hope that the Radan that escaped death can 'save the Phoenix' and 'save the world'! Thrilling stuff!  


Moon Saber
Item | Jul 30, 2023
The Moon Saber seems to be an 'Excalibur' amongst the shifter tribes of this world. I wonder who will be the next 'true' hero to wield this sacred blade?
Dread Crown
Item | Oct 25, 2023
The Dread Crown sounds like an artefact that would be at home in my 'vampire' world. I'd like to know more about the myths about this significant item and its effects on those that adorn it!


Face Stealer
Myth | Nov 12, 2023
I have a similar myth/legend in my own world. I'd love to hear more examples of how face-stealers have deceived others in the world of Kald!
Oath of the Forest
Myth | Jul 23, 2023

Every sprite child knows they will one day swear an oath to the trees. But they only think they know the reason.

A sad and sombre tale seemingly highlighting the plight of the 'natural' world from humans. But reading on there is an even more tragic twist to the tale! What will happen if the truth comes out?!  

Worldbuilding Goals...

  I surprised myself with the creation of this new world as I'd originally thought I would work on a different realm from The Enchanted Realms. But it organically grew from the first prompt article I wrote and now I want to dive even deeper into this world after the Summer Camp awards. So I will be...
  • Continue to work on Vyrvania
  • Write/Publish some serial fiction for this world
  • Work on a more suitable design/theme for the Vyrvania pages
  • ...and I think that's probably plenty to be going on with for the rest of the year!    


    And last but not least here is a long list of all the wonderful 'beans' and their worlds that have inspired me during Summer Camp 2023!
