When you’re building a fantasy world — whether for a tabletop game or a novel — it helps to establish the rules for how the world works, as well as its history, its social classes, races and various creatures. For those of you who enjoy noodling around with world-building, the wiki known as WorldAnvil may be a great help. Using WorldAnvil keeps all your notes, storylines and rules efficiently organized and easily searchable.
Now WorldAnvil is annoucing the WorldEmber 2017 Challenge. Inspired by NaNoWriMo and Mapvember, the site is challenging all its users to write 6000 words in 31 days. It’s a legitimate contest with prizes fromTabletop Loot available for the winners.
WorldAnvil holds other contests too — monthly mini-challenges. In these contests you must write an article within your world on a fixed topic. Post your entry to the appropriate Discord channel, and the winner will be decided by the WorldAnvil community based on the number of likes. This month’s challenge is “Great Books” in honour of the first publication of Encyclopedia Brittanica. What great books exist in your fantasy world?
