Preptober Prompts Day 7 – 2019

Preptober Prompts Day 7 – 2019

Virilia doesn’t have any music-related superstitions (that I’m aware of). However, in Teraco violins are considered cursed because they’re such a common instrument of the Harlequins. It’s believed that violin music always heralds a group of Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 7 – 2019”

Preptober Prompts Days 5 & 6 – 2019

Preptober Prompts Day 4 – 2019

There’s no music-based magic in Virilia, no. In Teraco (which is significantly westward of Virilia) there’s a race of Harlequins who possess illusion magic and sometimes use music to focus it–violins and flutes are especially popular among Harlequins–but unfortunately, none of my worlds include legitimately music-based magic (yet).


Does your world feature any music-based magic? I’d love to hear about it down in the comments!

And don’t forget that you can submit prompts! There are three “extra” days in October which aren’t part of an official Promptober week (thank you, Anne, for this term!), and I’ll be featuring reader-submitted prompts for those days. All you have to do is submit a prompt below, but you can improve your chances of getting your prompt chosen by sharing about and participating in Preptober Prompts. The three readers who are chosen will get special graphics for their prompts, and if they’re bloggers then their blogs will be featured. Any prompts not chosen will be compiled into a list as a bonus for those who want extra prompts. Sound cool? Submit a prompt below!

Note: I do reserve the right to remove from the drawing anyone I can’t find a prompt for or whose prompt doesn’t fit Preptober.

Preptober Prompts Day 3 – 2019

In Virilia’s lower villages, music is viewed as a form of expression and entertainment, and it’s acknowledged by the Virilens as a way of bringing people together. It’s primarily something done for fun, though artistry is definitely involved and musicians strive to learn as much as they can about their instruments. They often ascribe to a “Learn the rules before you break them” philosophy when it comes to music.

In the upper cities, music is still Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 3 – 2019”

Preptober Prompts Day 2 – 2019

In the lower villages of Virilia, music is something that brings communities together. Lower village communities are always fairly close-knit, but music is one of the things that always brings a village’s members to one place and helps Continue reading “Preptober Prompts Day 2 – 2019”
