WorldEmber 2020 Pledge Document

Hi everyone, it me, Grace. WorldEmber is half a month away so it's time to PLAN!   I've worked on my world meta for the past couple of days, so now I've got an idea of what I want to use for articles this December. Since Limbo is a place that is 1) pretty central to my current novel project, 2) was last properly developed last WorldEmber and 3) not well developed since, it will get many new articles and some art!   The general overview of what new articles will be created is:
  • The six remaining Keepers - as I've already done Klaus Bergendorf for a previous competition;
  • The major auxiliary organizations of the Seven and what they do;
  • A couple other important people in the city;
  • Ranks and professions within the Seven's bureaucracy; and
  • Important locations in the Sunless City.
In addition, there will be a few other general articles that I've been itching to add or revamp. I haven't touched the Magical Forms, for instance, since I first started my WorldAnvil account 2.5 years ago, and most of those need a heavy amount of revision to bring them up to snuff. There's also a few interesting concepts that I haven't delved into deeply but are important for my current novel project like the Veras Crystal or Dimensional Corruption. If I find myself with nothing to do during this month, they'll get updated too...they won't show up here because they're already existing articles, obviously.   Without further ado...here's the WorldEmber List of Pledging, or as I like to call it, the WELP:

Each article will have at least 300 words, just like Summer Camp articles. I have a very large list here, and I can't guarantee that I'll get to all of them, but I will make a sincere attempt! If there are other cool article ideas that come up in the next few weeks, I'll add them to the WELP.   In general, I am hyped for WorldEmber despite *gestures vaguely at the state of the world* and I can't wait to get writing! Best of luck to competitors, and see you around the Anvil :)
