Calling All World Builders! - Tales of Elysium Collaborative Project

Calling all creative writers, world builders, artists, storytellers, and creative individuals!

Tales of Elysium is a collaborative project to build an in depth, lore rich fantasy world where incredible stories will take place. We are looking for anyone with talent in any of the above areas who would like to be apart of a community of story tellers and world builders.

We are currently operating on our discord server and looking to put together an initial team of 10 or so talented writers. Once our core team has been selected and some key foundations laid for our world, we will open up the gates to everyone else who is interested in building a piece of Elysium!

What is Elysium? - Elysium is a land of mystery and wonder. An ancient continent surrounded by a mysterious force known as The Veil, which no man has ever ventured beyond. Elysium has a rich history of conflict and war, ancient beings from unknown regions of the universe, mysterious locations, powerful artifacts, and so much more!

there are elements of fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, lovecraftian horror, and beyond!

We are planning on writing a whole series of books that will take place in Elysium. Your contributions could very well make it in one of the books, or even become the main plot!

If you would like to apply for our initial team, please tell us a little bit about yourself in the comments. If we think you are a good fit, we will get you in the server! If you do not make the initial team, wait patiently! We will be opening the gates to Elysium very soon!

'...elements of fantasy, science fiction, action, adventure, Lovecraftian horror, and beyond!'

I suppose my 'Empire' series qualifies on most of these points. For that matter, so do most of my other tales.

The first four books are out with the last two slated for release early next year.

Link to the first book, read the blurb, or better yet the book itself and see if it's close to what you are after:

Your book looks cool, seems along the lines of what we're dabbling in. Are you interested in helping?

Is there a contract among the collaborators? Fixing the rights, responsiblities, royalties, what happens if a creator departs the project, etc.
Who chooses the tales to go forward to publication? When, where and in what formats the works will be published, and who decides or how is it decided?
Who pays for the editing, cover art, interior art, promotion, ISBNs etc.? Certainly some areas could be provided by the collaborators.

Well, I would be interested as worldbuilding is actually part of fantasy that interests me the most. Well, that and researching stuff for worldbuilding.

I am a self-taught writer of 10 years who is amazingly terrible at writing characters, but I have a pretty good knack on environmental descriptions as well as poetic writing. I tend to love writing with a fantasy style as well as using themes of psychology whenever I fitting as these two subjects are two I delve in often.

You and me are polar opposites then. My prose is terrible and I’m not really that good at environment descriptions. But I’m pretty good at writing characters. I am also self taught. Taught in general is even a reach for me though lol.


I am maybe possibly willing to try this out. I wouldn’t refer to myself as a talented writer though, but if you are short people I’m a passable helping hand. My worldbuilding I do feel fairly confident about.
