Universe Rewrite 2020

Here at The Wanderers’ Library, we love some good lore, and we especially love disagreeing about lore. That’s why our current lore page needs an update! It’s several years old, and doesn’t take into account many of the user generated ideas that have been developed since it was created. With that in mind, we as staff want to do a major rewrite of it. We also want to use YOUR user input to do so — see the page for how to contribute!

Featured Article from August 2020

Everyone knows the Main Hall. Little more can be said about it that has not been described in countless works and speeches and songs. I believe if one listens to this music while entering the Hall, they will find it the perfect "theme song."

Stories: A to Z

The Wanderers' Library is a collaborative fiction exercise. It's a collection of stories that explore strange and fantastic corners of the world, hidden from ordinary eyes. Some of the stories take place in the distant past, taking the form of legends and fables. Others are from the modern day, hiding in the shadows just out of sight. The basic premise is that there are strange things that are not quite of our world. Some are dangerous, some are merely fascinating. They are all in some respect extraordinary.

A big game hunter searches for hunting in other worlds.

A creature lives in alleyways and junkyards, collecting bits of trash to disguise itself.

A red thing of many parts promises everything you have ever wanted.

Stories here should try to evoke a Sense of Wonder, a sense that there is a larger world beyond the one we know. In the world of the Library, these wonders are hidden, but never truly far away. But never forget that this is a wilder world than our own, and it's never entirely safe, either. Tread with care.
