WWMWBI is the abbreviation for What would my world be if ...
What would my world be if…. What if questions.
..if Dragons were common?
.. if a World War occured?
.. if magic as your people know it stopped working?
.. if another peoples came to the shore of my known world?
.. if a diety died?
.. if someone invented movable type and the printing revolution began?
This is a type of thread I would like to see here. By putting the distintive WWMWBI in the title of the thread, people will be able to find these intersting discussions. These discussions become resources for other GMs.
WWMWBI discussions have two parts.
The first is the general discussion of the ramifications of said event. These are the general things to think about or consider if XXX occured. General Comments is what these are called.
The second is what would happen (or did or will happen) in your campaign world if XXX occured. In my world is your chance to show us your ideas in action.
To start a WWMWBI article, simply put
WWMWBI - The subject in the subject line
WWMWBI - Someone invented the printing press for example
Spiel a little about the subject in the first post, to explain what you want to see in the thread.
Then in the next post, give the general comments and what happened in your world if XXX happened.
Make sure to make the submission an article, with resource and GM clicked. Also remember to make it a scroll.
Traditionally, everyone’s post has two parts…
Comments General and In My World. These are often very short segments. Though down the line, there are just comments and questions.
This format is easy to do and helps make your posts a useful resource for future visitors to the site who will be intrigued by what you did (or thought might happen) if…..

The desire for immortality is a common one, given our innate fear of death. We share the same desire for immortality of our characters. Potions of immortality are often fakes, while spells of unending life invariably turn the caster into a vampire, or a liche or some other evil creature.
WWMWBI - Grain Went Away ( Articles ) Resource - Game Mastering
Imagine a blight that killed off the grasses and grains. This is not an unheard off event. Mutant spores, molds, and diseases have killed off a wide variety, even who classes, of plants in the real world. Something that kills off grasses, sounds like science fiction (and the premise has been used in many “end of the world” movies and stories), but it is very applicable to a fantasy world… especially because they are mostly agrarian.
