[I have an idea for a rather large-scale project, which I’d like to try and gauge some interest on. Basically, what I’m thinking of would be a big collaborative project among members of the Shipyard (and, indeed, anyone else with the talent and interest to get involved) comprising of a comprehensive guide to Tamriel and its environs. This would be a mixture of canon lore and (lore-friendly) worldcanons from the community, in which people could chip in on areas of expertise or particular interest. For example, roleplayers of characters of Breton nobility could work on the section about the upper echelons of High Rock society, or those whose characters are particularly esteemed mages of Destruction/Restoration/Alteration/etc. could pen the sections on those.
Basically, what I’m proposing is something like the Pocket Guide to the Empire, but bigger - as all-encompassing as we could achieve, trying to cover the history, geography, society and politics of Tamriel (and the outlying lands such as Akavir, as much as possible, and even the outer planes of Oblivion/Aetherius) in as intricate detail as possible. This would be no small task, as we would need plenty of writers, editors to make it all fit into a cohesive text, and even illustrators and/or graphic designers to make it look all pretty-like. So I’d like to see who might be interested in contributing to something like this.
My working title is: Encyclopaedia Tamrielica, Volume One; by The Imperial Shipyard Folio Society.]
