I’m considering keeping track of Boundless information in a wiki, because after writing 7 Ezeroc Wars novels, 5 novellas, 6 short stories, and 3 mid-range books, I’m losing track. I know, I know, #hardfail, but it is what it is.
Then I got to thinking: should I make the wiki based on a point of relevance, like D&D? If there are, say, orcs (…not telling, yet), do I adjust character bios to include stats? Would that be cool? Would it be confusing? Would Chuck Wendig approve?

Tried to read LOTR a bunch and couldn’t get through it.
Worldbuilding is not plot.
Your book shouldn’t read like an RPG manual but should also make me wish someone made your book into an RPG.
The Chosen One is a tiiiiired narcissistic trope. https://t.co/1oF8tVFuvK
