The Lore Process

In the spoiler you can find the process for submitting lore and how lore is handled/reviewed.



Submitting Lore - 1

Once you’ve read the submission guide(s) and other necessary resources left above and write up your lore, you will be able to submit it. Please only submit pieces which are completed unless you are looking for additional feedback. If you are still working on the post, mark is as "WIP" or it will be reviewed.


Waiting - 2

After you submit your lore, it will be open for people to comment on for a period of time. As this happens, your lore will also be slotted into a queue for the next available lore review. Each lore review contains 4-6 pieces and takes roughly 9 days to complete.


Lore Review - 3

Once your piece is selected for the next lore review, it will be marked on the Accepted-Stuff sheet accordingly. 


After the lore is voted on, you will receive a verdict. This verdict will either be Accepted, Implemented, Pending, or Denied.

Accepted - The piece has been accepted with no issues. 

Implemented - In the case your lore is an amendment or an addition, we will submit this to let you know it has been applied to the main lore.

Pending - You will receive a changelist in DMs on Discord or The Forums regarding what needs to be fixed. While negotiable, anything you wish to discuss must be brought up with the manager delivering the verdict.

Denied - Your lore was denied, and you will be sent reasons as to why.


Acceptance - 4

Once your lore is accepted, it will be looked over to see if a guide is required. If you are submitting a magic, creature, or something else that is playable, you will likely need to write a guide (also covered in the aforementioned lore sub guides). Whether or not you need a guide will be told to you by the person who accepts your lore. 


Activity Trial - 5

If you submit the guide and it is approved, your lore will then be placed on an activity trial. This lasts 3-6 months and is entirely a background observation by ST Management to see how well spread the lore is, and how it performs in practice. There is no notification of the deadline end. 


Maintenance - 6

Once your activity trial has ended, your lore enters a period of continued maintenance where it is checked up on periodically by ST to make sure the lore is still functioning properly and active. This period lasts indefinitely.
