Get help with the ecosystems of your fantasy world, the engineering of your faster-than-light spaceship, or the architecture of Everytown, USA. Character Cafe Whether you can’t figure out why your villain is unrelatable, or need to know what job would best suit a fairy looking to pay her way through college, this is your home for all things character. Adoption Society All the adoptables you could ever need. Find an abandoned plot, a character, a title, or even a catchphrase at your One-Stop Adoption Shop! Grammar & Style The nuts, bolts, and other mechanical workings of writing. Topics include: grammar, vagaries of spelling, using other languages in your text, choosing a POV, and stylistic concerns. Appellation Station Don’t know what to name your main character’s third uncle? Have a place that needs a better moniker than “MC’s Home Town”?
