Summer Camp 2021 Pledge Document

What am I doing here?

Which project are your worldbuilding efforts tied to?

My worldbuilding is for a TTRPG campaign I'm running in Totania called the Magic College Campaign, about students at the titular Magic College. I've already done a fair bit of the worldbuilding for the area around said college, but the campaign is expanding beyond that, so it's time for me to make articles for other stuff in Totania, and Summer Camp came at the perfect time! How exciting!

What world are you working on?

I'll be in Totania for Summer Camp! It is kinda my only world at the moment...

But nevertheless! I will work my hardest to expand this world! I've already got a lot of lore and such, it just comes to actually writing it down in article form.

Which area of the world are you working on?

Of course, this may change given the prompts, but I'd like to focus on the continent of Udai. I've already done a fair bit on Elone, but the other large continent in Totania, where Orcs and all kinds of Beastmen live, is one that I would love to delve into further, especially since it ties into a lot of characters backstories.


There's some real fun stuff in there (Orcs are always fun, I mean just look at the lady on the left and try to tell me she isn't lovely!), and I do always aim to entertain, so I hope I can find some real gold in Udai with these prompts. I am curious if I can put a fun Orc spin on some prompts that may not seem to fit Orcs.

When will you write?

I'm probably going to be writing exclusively at night when I get home from work, as well as on my days off from work. It should be enough time to get out the articles I want to, and if not, oh well. I'm a fairly fast typer, so it just comes down to getting the ideas ready.

My Support Network

I am eternally grateful for all of my lovely players (There's 10 of them!!!!! Isn't that awesome?!). They are fantastic people, and they support me more than I could ever hope for them to. I'm thankful to be able to lean on them when I need to.   Specifically, I look for help from my editors here, AnthraxSurprise and Andreaspsillos4. They are big pillars for me, and are incredibly helpful. They'll help regulate me to make sure I don't burn myself out.   I also take great inspiration from the World Anvil Discord, there are some great conversations that go on there that I see (even if I don't know how exactly to get involved in them normally, so I just kinda sit there and watch).

How much are you aiming to complete?

I'm asking myself the same question, but I'm gonna shoot for the stars! I'm gonna aim for all the prompts! I'm not necessarily sure if I'll be able to, with work and actually writing my campaign. However, I'm going to try! I will make sure that I don't burnout though (I even made something in my world called burnout to make fun of myself for it, so I think I'm getting self-aware enough).

I hereby pledge...


I can do this! Go for Gold- I mean, Diamond. Or Gold, if I can't get Diamond. But hopefully Diamond. I'll work my hardest to get out all the quality articles I can! It'll be fun!

Burn out is a real worry for me too. I'm glad you have good people to help regulate that - they're invaluable! Good luck with Summer Camp! :D

They're really great, very helpful to prevent burnout (and just great people). And thanks, good luck to you as well!

Nice work here! And don't feel bad about having only one world. I have only one world, and I've been writing in it for 30 years (since I was 14-15).

Thanks! And wow, that's some really amazing dedication. I do love working in one world, it lets me really flesh it out in-depth rather than spreading all that work out.

Come and take a look around my world, Totania!

I love that you have a focus on your campaign setting, and I especially love your Orc hype! Good luck! Shoot for the moon - even if you miss you'll be among the stars!

If you die will you stop world building or will it only further inspire your work?

I think death might be a setback, but I think even as a ghost I'd be worldbuilding (might give me a new idea or two...).

Thanks! I spent quite a bit agonizing over the layout and the look, so I am glad you enjoyed it!
