🌟 Community highlight

If you want an example of horror worldbuilding, you can’t go wrong with the Plague of Dreams by Qurilion—a horrifying conflict spawned from nightmares (literally) that almost destroyed an entire city. And while the city eventually won… the nightmares could come back at any moment. It won the Worldbuilding Awards in the Strength & Honor category, so go check out the article!
