As Mike noted in his post, we’re starting the new arc next week. And the more help we can get, the better off we’ll be. I’m posting here to suggest one particular form of volunteer assistance that I think would be most helpful: developing lore factsheets.
A factsheet is a concise compilation of all canonical lore (Riot and Factions) concerning a given topic. It’s formatted primarily as an outline. It’s quite valuable to lorestaff when working on lore updates and story planning, as it shows at a glance what’s already established on the subject. We’ve created a few in the Drive folder concerning topics we think will be of special importance in this coming arc, but you’re more than welcome to create others using those as a template.
You don’t have to be a lore expert to work on these, either. It really just involves combing through the JoJ, Champion backgrounds, and Factions lore searching for references to the topic, and then entering a short summary of each reference you find, with a link to the source material.
So if you have a moment to spare, this would be a really useful way to contribute to the success of the next arc.
