What is Unofficial MapVember?

  Most years, in November, people look forward to a multitude of creative projects. There's NaNoWriMo for the writers, and there's WorldEmber prep for the worldbuilders. There was MapVember for a couple of years, but, this year, we noticed it was missing. After a few people from Infinite Imaginations prompted me, I decided to make an UnofficialMapVember challenge!
   

How does it work???

Simply map out a place, in word or image, and share it anywhere on socials or on the WorldAnvil website using #UnofficialMapVember! There are thirty prompts, one for every day of the month, but you only have to complete at least one to be counted as a participant. If you'd like a badge, share your work with me (WordiGirl) by commenting with the link to your entry below.
   

Who can participate??

Map it or not, everyone is welcome to join! Write in and about different locations all around your project, draw a picture from a place, or, most traditionally, draft up a map! Bonus points if you make a map using DungeonFog!
cohost read boi.gif
2023's UnofficialMapVember prompts are centered around three topics:   Where you do things, Where you find things, & Where you feel things   If you are participating in NaNo, be sure to write about these locations and share the scene as your entry everywhere using #UnofficialMapVember!

THE SHINIES HAVE BEEN UNLEASHED!!!!!

You've won the
Cartographer Badge if:

You drafted up a map of a location based on at least one of the prompt words

This is why our community is so awesome! If you dont mind I will probably be dropping this article block in my WE prep article. I may be able to bend a few of my WE prep things to fit some of these.

Feel free to stop by some of my WorldEmber articles if you want. My favorites are The Book of the Unquiet Dead, Outpost of the Moons, and The Emerald Hills. Feedback is always appreciated.

I am having a BLAST with these prompts! I'm continuing to update this post throughout the month: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/sylinia-oneillwrites/a/unofficial-mapvember-article?preview=true   All the watercolor maps are my own! My husband keeps laughing at me for having so many paints spread out across our living room!!

Did my first #UnofficialMapVember article for prompt 22 (Joy): https://www.worldanvil.com/w/the-million-islands-demongrey/a/guith-location   I'll probably make a page to collect these and post that later, but wanted to share the first one I wrote.

Okay. Sorry for the deluge of links!

Silly question Wordigirl. How do we get the badge added to our profile?

Jan 22, 2024 02:05 by LexiCon (WordiGirl)

Hi there! So sorry. I literally have over 1,000 notifications now. I still need ot OFFICIALLY wrap up this UNOFFICIAL challenge, but since it is not an official World Anvil challenge, the badges won't appear on your profile automatically. You'll have to copy the image tags and embed them into your profile or wherever else you'd like them displayed. I'm going to try to get those together. Thank you for your patience. In the meantime, feel free to download the picture and upload it into your own world and then you can display it anywhere. But I really need to get those tags set. Hopefully by the time you see this message, I will have done it.

Took some time, but I'm finally done with one article and its corresponding map - the prompt of my choice was relief and you can find the map and the corresponding story here: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/aran-sha-tyrdal/a/a-quiet-desert-cave-location-1

Sit down, my friend, and let me tell you of Aran'sha . A world where the sands shift and the stars sing, where the wind carries secrets and the twin moons keep silent vigil over it all.

Finally! The plans for the plans are here*! I like the way my mind is working in relation with this, to bad that I'm so slow when anything involving graphics hahaha. I was waiting to have at least a floor or something before sharing, but I got impatient!   (I mean here: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/uneventful-escritora-novata/a/unofficial-mapvember-article)

Oh, gosh. I'm so late. I completely forgot about this, but I will do my best to get at least five done before the end of the month.   Can't wait to write these prompts!

Nov 15, 2023 09:52 by LexiCon (WordiGirl)

I'm late myself, so don't worry. Much success with your plans! Also, remember that you only need one entry for the badge!

Ne vous inquiétez pas de la langue dans laquelle vous l'avez écrit ! Merci beaucoup d'avoir participé au concours ! Que Dieu te bénisse <3 (Je connais un peu le français, mais j'ai définitivement fait appel à un traducteur pour cela. J'espère que cela a du sens pour vous !)

Feb 4, 2024 23:16 by LexiCon (WordiGirl)

Salut. La vie a été un peu un tourbillon, je m'en excuse. J'ai ajouté le bbcode pour coller les badges il y a quelque temps, mais j'ai oublié de mettre à jour les gens. Désolé! Votre entrée doit être intégrée dans l'article et vous devriez pouvoir copier et coller les badges où bon vous semble maintenant. Merci de votre patience et j'apprécie votre participation une fois de plus !

very interesting and don't worry about being late! I am late to my own challenge lol. Do you happen to have a map embed code for this? I would love to embed it in the article. If not, no worries. I can simply link it. I appreciate you entering once again. Have a blessed one!

Nov 30, 2023 04:53

Ah forgot about that. here it is [map//:e42f7c17-da25-45b8-8cd6-5bb379cc6cfd] just remove the // :)

Your entry should be embedded in the article and you should be able to copy and paste the badges wherever you please now. For some reason, the embed isn't showing on my end? Perhaps you posted the wrong code or have since deleted the map? Even the link redirects to your world's homepage. Uncertain of exactly what went wrong. If you have an update, feel free to let me know. If not, don't worry about it at all. Thank you for your patience and I appreciate you entering once again!

Age of Defiance Wordigirl's Unofficial Mapvember 2023 Entry
Generic article | Jan 4, 2024

The city itself is roughly 3000sq miles, so 750x750mi not counting the surrounding Lonesteads. My logic was that if Texas can fit 3-4 Finlands then Bainshaebo needs to fit 3-4 Houstons.

Bringing in the rear! Better late than never I suppose! I find it ironic I finished this so late when I was one of the ones who wanted a mapvember challenge and WA didn't have one planned, but had so much on my plate I had to juggle. Props to WG for stepping in! I hope you like it!

My very last-minute entries! I've made two Metro-style Maps for the plots I hope to write for my first novel, The Heart of The Half-Dragon. Both maps are focused on Where You Love, Where You Find Hope, and Where You Find Courage. Thanks for hosting this great challenge! I don't know if I would been motivated to map out these storylines in this manner otherwise.   (spoiler tags hide both maps)   https://www.worldanvil.com/w/the-dragonstar-sagas-melissaplaysrpgs/a/world-ember---2023-pledge-article-article
