Nerdolopedia

Nerdolopedia is a multimedia production group based around a community of fellow nerds. On our Twitch channel we play our favorite videogames, get crafty with miniatures and doodles, or group up to play tabletop games. On our discord we love to hang out and talk about writing, streaming, videogames, and whatever our fellow nerds find passion in. We like to hold community events like our monthly game (community picked!) and our monthly write in’s.

Fantasy Worldbuilding

Welcome to Fantasy Worldbuilding, a community of individuals who create a wide variety of worlds of different genres. We’re a laidback community that prides itself on the close knit nature of its members and the fact that you won’t vanish in a sea of comments. Come in and join us, we love both the experienced and the new. There’s something for everyone in FWB, and for those who like a little competition, you can even join our monthly contests.

The Writing Cartel

Indie Authors Discord is a community for indie authors, self-published authors, and those published with small presses. Whether you’re new to self-publishing, looking for marketing/promotion ideas, or a seasoned vet, we welcome you!

Our intention is to be a community where you can discuss the ins-and-outs of self-publishing. We are hoping to grow a community where we can help with promoting, sharing best practices and resources.

Smunchy Games
