Universe Rewrite 2020

Hello! 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 user input to do so.

Here’s where you can contribute your thoughts, ideas, questions, and answers to the questions about the Library. To submit a question OR answer, PM it to RounderhouseRounderhouse, noting what number question you're answering. In addition, for every question you submit, you need to also submit an answer to a different question to keep things balanced. However, you can submit as many answers as you want. Keep your answers short please, no more than four or five sentences. Try to keep your questions in line with the ones here, nothing overly specific. We aren’t guaranteeing we’ll use all of the ideas here for the new Universe page, but we’ll do our best to incorporate as much user info as we can! We'll be accepting user submissions through the end of the month, on August 1st.

This also goes without saying, but nothing here or on the Universe page is Official Canon You Must Adhere to. As with everything relating to the Library, it's just a bunch of speculation that's probably wrong.
