'''Guidelines on Writing Entries:''' There are two dominant 'styles' of entry, descriptive and narrative. Descriptive entries are overall discussions of landscape, species and races, cosmology and world mechanics, and individuals of note. These may be written from the point of view of a particular individual, faction, or group, but should probably also include a notation of from whose point of view it is. A neutral overview as well also would be extremely helpful in separating 'fact' from 'fiction.'

Narrative sections are written more or less "in-world," but always with a neutral point of view- this does not necessarily mean no judgmental or biased text, just no in-world bias. These are essentially story sections, and recount events, deeds, and changes over time.

"fiction".

Narrative sections are written more or less "in-world," but always with a neutral point of view- this view--this does not necessarily mean no judgmental or biased text, just no in-world bias. These are essentially story sections, and recount events, deeds, and changes over time.



The idealized form of this project is a round-robin format- essentially, writers alternate and break up their entries. This is more true of the Narrative entries, which seek to tell a story, than it is of the Descriptive entries, which simply describe components.

There is no fixed lineup of entry order for Narrative entries, but try not to dominate. Also, be very careful to maintain the tone and spirit of a particular author's creations. If in doubt about a change you wish to make, ask. Always provide rational basis for any change or event that occurs- follow an intelligent and logical progression.

On the other hand, expect your creations to change in ways you may not have intended. Keeping to the character of an element is good- if the people of a particular area go bad, it should be because something either in their own society allowed it or something outside it pushed them in that direction. It may also be wise to always provide an 'out' in such social changes, so as to allow for flexibility.
