World Anvil’s World Building Summer Camp event ends next week. Since I didn’t start it until a couple weeks into July, I knew I wouldn’t have time to write entries for all the prompts, but I thought maybe I would be able to do 10 (which would get me a badge for my WA profile). Unfortunately, I keep going way over the 300 word minimum on these, so so far I’ve only got 3. Since I have to work next Saturday (the final day to submit entries), I don’t know if I can get to 10, but I’m going to see how many I can write. I’ll update this post as I add new ones (and will also share them on social media).
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
- Write about a myth or legend relating to a famous, long-lost item: Tolva’s Veil.
- Write about an apex predator in your world. How does it hunt and survive? Trolls.
- Describe a counter-culture in your world, something outside the mainstream culture of the place: The Horse Lords.
- Write about a food-focused event in your world and describe how it’s celebrated: Lobster Eve Fights at the Lusty Minotaur.
- Describe a vehicle in your world that brings joy wherever it arrives: Baron Furkza’s Caravan of Curiosities.
- Write about the headquarters of an organization in your world: Baron Furkza’s Museum of Mysteries.
- Describe a condition in your world caused by a drug or medicine: Kyuchokt (Kissed to Stone).
- Describe an elite or highly specialized military unit in your world: Kobyonja.
- Write about a secret code or cypher in your world: who uses it, and for what purpose? The Whisperers’ Cypher
- Write about a famous agreement, contract, or treaty that shaped the history of your world: The Grain Rot Pact.
Why stop at 10?
- Describe a common old wives’ tale or conspiracy theory from a region of your world. Does it hold any truth? The Curse of the Lusty Minotaur (The question about whether it holds any truth isn’t answered here, but you can find it in the zine).
- Write about a material that is considered sacred or culturally crucial in your world: Coffee in Khezvaros.
- Describe an important religious leader in your world. How has their character changed the status quo? The Eternal Empress.
- Write about a building that has been reused and repurposed from its original design. Port Authority & Customs House.
Since there’s just 11 minutes to go before the deadline, looks like I’m stopping at 14 entries.
