As promised, here is the last showcase of the month-long villain series.
This ended up being more difficult than I thought it would be. Just spending time thinking about the antagonists was useful, and it was fantastic seeing other people join in. Thanks to everyone participating!
I spent the week focusing on my last villain of the four I meant to go over, Sorche du Remerdii. I also wrote a closing message and introduced a bonus villain-type, the king’s secret police, nicknamed after the silver masks that they wear.
- Sorche du Remerdii: introduction (with story excerpts)
- Sorche du Remerdii: ten wants
- Villain month, in closing
Saint Know-All finished a few more drawings, and bid farewell to the month.
Nilah wrote a short article about human predators, in regards to the villain month project.
Aldersgatecycle focused on her last villain, Sally Din.
Nymeria wrote about Orion Novak, Dahlia Laras, and posted a gallery of her villain portraits.
And, last, even though she wasn’t actually participating, Worderella was kind enough to write up a few posts on villains on her blog as a kind of villain-month-tribute.

Thoughts? Comments? Shall we do this again someday?
A ‘hero month’ idea has already been put out, and I wouldn’t mind spending some time dedicated to world building as a future project…
