Discord is a free chat app for gamers and other communities. We use it to geek out about reading and writing!
Our Discord community is a place for fans of science fiction and fantasy to hang out together. If you are a reader, join for discussions about your favourite books, reviews by awesome bloggers, and a book club. If you are a writer, join for a community of creative minds who are getting words down onto the page. We discuss worldbuilding, chat about goals, read books on craft together, and cheer each other on!
Machines capable of thinking and acting like humans. Robots with souls. Do they take over the world and attempt to destroy humanity? Are they depressed sidekicks? Do they just want to be left alone? It depends on the story, but all of these characters have one thing in common: they explore the question of what it really means to be human.

The Wayfarer’s Guide to Worldbuilding is a tool to help writers, DMs, and creatives build unique, scientific, and magical worlds. Each episode explores one facet of worldbuilding and gives practical advice on how to design these elements.
Hosted by the Mythos & Ink staff, the podcast explores strong examples of worldbuilding from science fiction and fantasy books, TV shows, and movies, and offers a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes world of publishing.
