Summer Camp 2022 Pledge
It's that time of year again, World Anvil's Summer Camp that gets my creative juices flowing and creates vast swathes of my world for me while I pariticpate in a community that has come to mean so much to me. I started moving my D&D campaign world into World Anvil at the end of 2019, but it wasn't until the summer of 2020, in the depths of the pandemic, that I really figured out how to use this amazing platform.
The prompts force me to look at my world in ways I had never considered before and the deadlines and community have helped my writing grow by leaps and bounds.
I intend to work on my main campaign world and the Kirinal Concordance Zone as usual, but this time I want to add in three new areas of play/concepts.
I'm trying to build an original setting that feels true to my own diasporic background. As a Filipino-American, I'm interested in the experience of people making a home for themselves in a new land where they are considered different. I'm not interested in dystopias, I want to build a setting where the people living in it can be their best, happiest selves.
I achieved the Diamond Badge in all the other Summer Camps that I've participated in. I see no reason to change that! Notwithstanding unforeseen circumstances, it's 31 articles and Diamond or bust for me!

Summer Camp 2022 Themes
Expanses in my regions include:
I have a lot of the Zone fleshed out, but there are organizations in there that could use some fleshing out.
Amongst the Shards, I can work on the leaders of the various peoples and their war parties.
The complex clan structure of the Dragon Empire should be heavy fodder for this theme.
The Shattered Moon is tailor-made for the discovery theme: thousands of sky-island Shards and the people who live on them.
The Zone and Darastrix Tolgalen are geographically smaller and heavily populated. Discovery in those areas would involve finding hiddent things or secret societies.
The Draconic rulers of the Island are monstrous by definition. Their followers can be just as terrifying.
The Shards are full of abominations, undead, and lycanthropes. Dark spirits fill the sky-islands and the air between.
The Zone is full of escapees from a thousand dimensions. Dark spirits and monsters are definitely included in their number.
Regions of Focus
Kirinal Concordance Zone
The neutral zone around the Kirinal Pit. It's divided into 8 allied squabbling city-states.
The hidden subcontinent of dragons and home of the dragonborn. The fanatical armies of this island are restrained by their powerful religious beliefs.
