Spice Up Your Worldbuilding: How Do Key Resources Affect History? with Minister Faust

Next class date is Sunday, October 8, 2023 1-3 PM Pacific time.

In 1825, Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said, “Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.”

What does your civilisation or world eat? Burn for fuel? Build with? Heal with? Expand or poison its minds with? That’s a key concept that drove the multi-million-book selling empire of Frank Herbert’s Dune and his unforgettable resource, the spice mélange.

Using key case studies, your imagination, and even two group shared world-building activities, join multiple world-builder Minister Faust to use one of the fastest, most effective, and most exciting methods to build fascinating worlds with endless interconnections.

Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. They are recorded.

Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive the discount or free classes, depending on their support level and can also receive the video afterward for $40; otherwise the cost is $50.

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

  • Which class or classes and the dates you would like to register

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for up to three classes.
