My Summer Camp 2021 Worldbuilding Pledge Document

 
Diamond or bust! I pledge to complete all 31 prompts for the Diamond Badge.
— Chris "kitoypoy"

This is my second Summer Camp. Last year's event really jump started my writing and my involvement in the World Anvil community. I got Diamond last year and got a lot of great content for my campaign world out of it. I'm hoping that the same happens this year.

I will also try to avoid burning myself out and allow myself to post 300 words of ideas instead of a polished article. There's always time to go back and edit. (Theoretically!)

Prep Week 1

Which project are your worldbuilding efforts tied to?

I'm going to be writing in my ongoing RPG campaign world for various editions of D&D, the World of Wizard's Peak.

What world are you working on?

I'll be working on Erathia, the Shattered Moon, and maybe the Hidden Moon

Which area of the world(s) are you working on?

Detailing the Kirinal Concordance Zone is a never ending project, but I'll also include the rest of the Sovranty of Lozar which has become the wider sandbox for my ongoing campaign. I was caught by surprise on some of the locations my players visited, so I want to flesh it out more.

How much are you aiming to complete?

I'm going to complete all 31 articles. I will make sure that every article has a header with the SC2021 logo on it and at least 300 words. I don't want to push past that.

When will you write?

Early mornings: 7am - 9am before the household wakes up and before I have to work.

Who is your support network?

Family and friends. ASC network. WA's Discord channel and the #challenge-discussion channel.

Organizing My Worldbuilding

Maps and Images

Map of Lozar and the Kirinal Pit

The action always centers around the Pit in particular and Lozar in general. I have 2 semi-active campaigns and 1 upcoming campaign based here.

Character Images

HeroForge and Artbreeder are my superstar go-to applications here. Most of the character pics I use come from there. I have some commissions (with plans for more) and a few portraits drawn by players and friends as well.

Yaaay! I like that you're heading for 31 prompts but allowing yourself just to keep them to just ideas if you need to. Good luck!

Thanks! Good luck to you too!

Check out my Bard Challenge article: Alera the Blood Siren. Visit my campaign world at the World of Wizard's Peak.

I love that you set a goal for yourself of coming back to polish later. I had that problem with SC2020, in that I wanted my articles to be production-ready before I published!   Good luck! Let's go Diamond!

Love it! Building off what Emy said, you've written this well to set yourself up for success. If some of them are just ideas by the end of the month, that's fine! Love, love, love it. Excited to see what you do.
