Welcome to the development log for Valtena! This is a way to keep track of the progress I've made on the world.
World Ember 2023
Special Shoutouts!This month, there have been a bunch of amazing worlds on display for World Ember, and it's been incredible getting to see what everyone is coming up with! However, I'd like to take a moment for some of the worlds from Articles Anonymous (and this includes Kingdom of America which was featured last month). Please take a look at these beautiful and awesome worlds!
November 2023This month has been very busy getting ready for World Ember! Each week, I've been working on my homework in preparation for writing 10,000 words between Valtena and Dinosaur Country. December is going to be a month of working on foundational articles for the world which primarily consists of species and deities. Throughout this month, I've been working on a few articles which had too much information to qualify for World Ember as stubs. So far, I've finished the content for Ril, Amel, and Human. There are still a few days left before World Ember, so I'm going to keep working on a few more articles just so I don't lose momentum. You can follow along with my World Ember progress here!
A New Theme!One of my biggest goals with Valtena has been to develop it enough to warrant investing in a custom theme. I absolutely love the premade themes available, and the Deven Rue theme worked well for many years. But now, with many thanks to my good friend Spleen, Valtena is looking all fresh and shiny with new custom css! Also, I've given the homepage a bit of a cleanup to make it easier to navigate and highlight the articles I want to show off.
As a way to connect with more people in the World Anvil community, I'm working on starting up a new chapter called Articles Anonymous. The goal of Articles Anonymous is to encourage writing and adding to your world (preferably with as many articles as possible). It's a support group for anyone who has a
problem passion for article creation. I also have plans to host chapter wide challenges to make more articles that spark inspiration, finish up the old stubs that are collecting dust, and challenge members to link back to what they've already created. Right now, Articles Anonymous is only an Aspiring Chapter until it reaches 10 members (currently at 6 as of 26 Nov). If this sounds like something you're interested in, head on over to the World Anvil Discord! There's a forum post in #looking-to-collab to express interest and find out more.
