My Nanowrimo story is slowly forming and I’m about to burst with excitement to live in it’s world while I write. Plotting is no easy task but I’ve learned the hard way that full pantsing doesn’t work for me. Half pantsing however, is my sweet spot. This little preptober journal is getting filled with all my rough plans and I’m loving every minute. Also... I think I found my Nanowrimo candle, the perfect companion to writing a story set in the woods. #preptober #nanowrimo #nanowrimoprep #amplotting #worldbuilding #writingabook #bookish #plotser #fantasynovel #amwritingya #shelflovereads
Kaede Kazesame. Race: Merfolk. Subrace: Sameko She has a lot of cool facts and features. I especially enjoyed reminiscing in my shark research. I find them such a fascinating animal from there crystal eyes to ampulli of lorenzini. I spent a while on this and it’s only the beginning. You can ask @exieween.arts about it. I talked about it with them for over an hour!! For those who couldn’t tell from the patterns, her basis is a tiger shark. #art #drawing #sketch #anime #manga #shark #monstergirl #racedesign #anatomy #worldbuilding #dragonsoulstory
Morning Dears! ✨🍁☕️🍁✨ • #oktowrimo QOTD: how do you approach word counts? • AOTD: simple, I don’t. They give me anxiety and make me worry more about the amount of words and less about the content of the words which isn’t the point of writing. So, I just don’t! • Do you keep track of word counts? That’s the beauty of it, every writer is different 💜💜💜
My favorite part (aside from the other cool and funny content) is @dmsguild ‘s item description creation posts. Its awesome inspiration, as a DM, to read through the comments that this content generates... • • • #dnd #dnd5e #dungeon #dragon #art #penandink #fantasy #dark #map #worldbuilding #cartography #criticalrole #artist #wotc #death #wizard #lotr #orc #cartographer #maps #pencil #pen #miniature #painting #drawing #inktober #rogue #red #gaming #thekoboldalchemist
It’s been so amazing to see in person the places I studied in uni and, on a more practical note, super interesting to see how an ancient city like Rome functioned, how it’s key buildings and gathering places related to each other in the landscape . #QOTD : what aspect of worldbuilding do you struggle with most? . #rome #travel #romanforum #fororomano #amreading #readersofig #readersofinstagram #bibliophile #writerslife #amwriting #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #writersofig #worldbuilding
Day 15. Wandermust. An orange wine originally vinted by a far travelling Seccoran wizard. Barbed grapes, normally poisonous, are the key to this now ubiquitous potion. Said to make you sleep better and walk father. #inktober #inktober2018 #potions #worldbuilding #fantasyart #traditionalart

Disclaimer: we have never burned a book in our lives. Ever. Buuuut let's be honest, sometimes we've really felt like it. Whether its cringy quotes, bad characterization, or a world full of plot holes, there are some books out there that really are just hard to read. So, if you're interested in the salt-filled reviews of popular YA books, this is the place for you :] Don't worry, it won't all be complaints. We'll be sure to throw in some reviews of our favorite books and authors too! #books #YA #bookreading #reviews #fantasy #scifi #romance #characterization #writing #authors #itssobad #itssogood #booksbooksbooks #bookreviews #YAbooks #bookstagram #fire #burningbooks #worldbuilding
Girls can be the heroines of adventures. Explore Sara Goldleaf's world and share with readers of age 9 and beyond. ________ A thirteen-year-old girl--bookish, behaved and quite unremarkable--wants to be a queen. Winning the crown might bring her father and brother home. But to be the queen, she may need the help of a twin she does not know existed--a  troubled loner busy fighting off her bullies in another world. On the brink of their teenage years, these two girls have to outsmart enemies,  survive crushes, and deal with other adolescent matters. The road to the throne may prove to be trickier than challenging bullies in school. ________ This book is for you, the avid book reader who spends little time in between reading materials, takes pride in doing well in school, has a great sense of imagination and wonder, and looks up to female heroines when growing up. You enjoy serious as well as light-hearted reading. Childhood reads spark fond memories. Despite the thrills of being an adult, you welcome any chance to relive childhood. Treasured memories include sharing your favorite reads with younger loved ones. I do hope you enjoy the adventures and company in Sara Goldleaf and the Crown of Midalin. https://www.amazon.com/SARA-GOLDLEAF-CROWN-MIDALIN-CHERRY-ebook/dp/B017MDIMBQ #quotestoliveby #quotesaboutlife #quotestagram #fantasy #book #stronggirls #fantasybooks #growingup #selfdiscovery #adultsneedtogrowuptoo #stronggirls #bildungsroman #amwritingfantasy #worldbuilding

"Our story begins with a song of rebellion..." . Incase you ever wondered where the name came from... yep. A street sign.

#witchesreadoctober favourite setting/ favourite heroine / orange books #bibliobookpagesoctober autumn colours 🍁🍂🍁🍂 🍁Schattenthron may be my latest novel, Caitlynn is still the leading character I like best. At the beginning she is a shy and caring 13 year old girl and at the end of the book she is 23 and has found her place in society, driven by her desire for justice and her wish to give those a voice who cannot tell their story themselves any more. The setting is a fantasy world without dragons and fairies filled with creatures and magic you have never heard about before. Right now I’m working on the third book of the series. New places, new mysteries and challenges, dangers and threats. 🏰🌋⛏💎 📙🧡#Caitlynn #vollstreckerderkönigin #library #bookstore #booklove #fantasy #worldbuilding #strongheroine #greatread #bookstagram #instabook #bookworm #buchhandlung #buchhändler
Happy Monday, folks! DMs, have you ever had players jump a cliff or a really steep edge and wonder how much damage that landing is going to deal? Try this simple guide or you can use the standard 1d6 per 5ft. Let me know in the comments below what you think.

Day 23: Least Favorite Monster... • • Mimic!!!! Now before you judge me, know this: I looked at this as “least favorite to encounter (as or if you were a player)”. That being said, the mimic is SO CRUEL! Imagine a hard fought journey or a grueling dungeon crawl—only to pry open the large chest at the end and have the chest snap back at you!? Jeez, mimics are a love hate thing for me... • • #dnd #dnd5e #dungeon #dragon #art #penandink #fantasy #dark #map #worldbuilding #cartography #criticalrole #artist #wotc #death #wizard #lotr #orc #cartographer #maps #pencil #pen #miniature #painting #drawing #inktober #rogue #red #gaming #thekoboldalchemist
Day 13: street kids They're usually kids who've escaped from the slave trade. Some of them were slaves, others escaped the transports before getting the collar.
I was busy finishing Black Wings Beating which Luna was busy with a bath. BWB has a unique magic system centering around birds that gives it a fresh read feel. The chapters alternate between twins, Kylee and Brysen, which allows @alexander_london to show us two sides of the same story and create some deeper characterization traits. The next book should give us more world building and I'm excited to see how expensive London makes it.
Monday’s are for #worldbuilding and #conceptdesign ! Work in progress of what we started today.

Inktober Day 12: Whale. The captain of the guard was huge, a whale of a man.
Hmmmmm comic stuff... Tunnel Rats! Im just doing basic concept sketches, nothing fancy cause I’m not a professional (yet). This is where the story begins but it’ll look super different once I actually start this comic. I’m finna be hella good with backgrounds once I start this . . . #oc #mang0ocs #comic #concept #conceptart #digital #art #digitalart #firealpaca #setting #background #backgrounds #cyberpunk #worldbuilding
For #inktober day 12: Slumbering Ooze 🤢 Shanghai's heat and humidity during the summer months make it an ideal environment for mobile algae colonies, the novel pairing of several species of chlorella and microscopic alginate processors. These gel-like creatures are sheathed in a glimmering holographic surface which projects colorful, writhing images. These patterns can attain striking levels of complexity and mimicry, being fully three-dimensional representations formed by the cooperation of millions of algal photoreflectors. The colonies use their patterning for camouflage, self-defense, inter-colony communication, and, some believe, to express a certain primordial whimsy. - On more humid days, they awaken and emerge in abundance from sewer grates and drainage pipes to spread themselves across damp surfaces to drink condensation. While often amusing, most consider them a general nuisance, silently sliding underfoot to cause frequently harmful falls. Having slipped on shimmering algae, one is said to have "kicked the sky". - #art #illustration #drawing #photoshop #digipaint #halloween #october #slime #ooze #artist #darkart #spooky #spoopy #worldbuilding #worldbuilder #patreon #patreoncreator #weirdfiction #creature #画画 #插画 #美素 #插画师 #nintharchive
Day 15 - Market Place
Working up title page for the mini adventure I am including in my upcoming sourcebook "Arcane Artifacts & Relics". After a few changes I'm really happy the way my picture came out. Used some piece art from Eglish rose that I backed on KS. Using Indesign trial edition on this and have to say it is a great program. Much easier and more fluid than Scribus. Still charging ahead for a month end launch. Pressure is on! #dnd5e #dnd #ttrpg #worldbuilding #rpg #dtrpg #palliven #fantasyart #sourcebook #selfpublishing #indesign

Day One of #Maker Camp at @adventuresci ! We started off by #worldbuilding #collaboration ...deciding what kind of world we were in, and then looking at how different #armor has functioned across time, needs, and terrain. We then figured out what kind of timeline we were in (and settled for characters in a #story spanning eras, so we could see how the armor changed as the world changed!) ...and spent our #character points to design our own individual class and draw out how the class, time period, and terrain would affect our build. Researching animals for this terrain that might influence our #design , creating materials guidelines, and figuring out continuity... Then of course: LOTS and LOTS of #CARDBOARD !! 📐✂️📦📦📦✂️📐
Necromancer’s Lair Day 13: Guarded; The Shadow Vault #inktober #graveborn
Today's inktober prompt: "Weak"! Worldbuilding subject again (no surprises there)! Behind the desk is the mayor of one of the world's most important cities, yet despite that he wields very little power. He's weak-willed, often drunk and rarely seen outside his study. In the background, a small part of the city he officially governs (though in name only) is visible. If you want to know more (about this subject or other parts of the world), feel free to ask. . Though I can see there's some stuff wrong in this drawing, I'm nevertheless very happy with how it turned out. This kind of thing is WAAAYYY out of my comfort zone! Perspective, furniture, people sitting (or any non-standing pose), all of those are quite difficult for me because I always avoided them. Tackling these long-standing deficiencies is confronting and hard, but I'm seeing some progress at least and that makes me happy! . *re-upload because I forgot the shadow beneath the desk!* . #inktober2018 #inktoberpromps #inktober #ink #art #artist #desk #mayor #prompt #weak #weakwilled #bookcase #window #city #airship #airships #view #cliffs #mist #cliffcity #canyon #ravine #interior #ama #worldbuilding #drawing

Ласферат - северо-западная омбранская башня, также известная, как башня Кровавой Луны за большую багровую сферу, составляющую основу угрожающего вида строения, вокруг которой, словно спутники, расположились две поменьше. Вместо флагов Ласферат использует большие красные фонари, тревожный свет которых подчеркивает остроконечный герб и девиз «Время силы пришло». . .
