SummerCamp 2021 Pledge Document

I, Kaleidechse, pledge to work on the following during Summer Camp 2021.
 

My Project

I will be working on "Nonfi Nis - The Empty Night". It will be my first video game intended for actual publication, as a practice piece for my big dream project.

My World

I will be working on my main world, the Kaleidoscope System.

My Focus Area

Time

I will be working on the time period around the Final War. I will mostly cover the years 50 NZR to 0 VZR. I may also look into the earlier history of the Rilanga Union and Ran-E-Zu Confederation.

Space

I will be working on the region to the south-east of the Ralenlos Mountains. This includes:  
  • the shelter of the Op family
  • the shelter of the Lo family
  • the path between them
  • the original home of the Op family
  • the original home of the Lo family

My Goal

I will complete at least the 20 prompts required for Silver. After that, I'll try to reach Diamond, depending on how well things go.

My Schedule

I will try to take my vacation during the last week of July and the beginning of August. I will write primarily during these time slots:  
  • 19:00 to 20:00 on work days
  • 10:00 to 11:30 on weekends and vacation days
  • 15:00 to 19:30 on weekends and vacation days

My Support Network

I will turn to the following people and communities to discuss my ideas and difficult prompts:  
  • my immediate family, in particular my sister
  • the WA community
  • the "Golden Dragon Tavern" community on DeviantArt and Discord
  • other worldbuilders I've met on DeviantArt and/or Twitter

Beautiful article! Wonderful CSS, Love the rainbow border, banner with summer camp logo and star background with the custom menu bar!.   I think this is an excellent example of how to structure your article for Summer camp in a clear and visually pleasing way while ensuring practicality for you as the project owner. The addition of specific times during the week is an excellent way to create smart, achievable targets.   I enjoyed seeing your visual 'To Do' list.     I look forward to seeing your progress. Please do join me live on stream and share your articles. I will be live every Sunday at 11:30 am UTC+1 plus other times. Check the streamer calendar.   Good luck and WELL DONE! An amazing article.

Thank you very much! ^^ I'm excited, too - I've wanted to make my own video games for so long, now I finally feel ready to get serious about it.

Thank you very much! ^^ Great to meet another video game developer, I admit that I sometimes feel like the odd one out among all the GMs and book authors.
