Help for Travel Brochure: Yeddaw school project


Varsuuk

Recommended Posts

Hello folks, my son (who has ADHD courtesy of dad...) was assigned a "Science Fiction or Fantasy" book report. I have been reading him Fantasy novels for "bedtime stories" since he graduated past Goodnight Moon, The Mini-Masters Board Books, Geronimo Stilton books, etc. Mom convinced me to read to him "The Lightning Thief" at 5, I thought him to young, especially with his (undiagnosed) attention issues. Second book in this vein was "The Hobbit" (which led to Lego LotR and a long standing obsession with all things Tolkien), followed by The Potter books, various assorted "fun" books like Oddkins, Alcatraz (! first introduction), Earthsea, etc.  

He fell in LOVE with Steelheart (I own the books but I bought it Audible for him, great narrator) and due to the deadline he >>reluctantly<< agreed to put off Firefight since it required an estimate hour and change a day to finish before deadline and that didn't account for report writing. I have him some shorter golden Age SF choices and :) Edgedancer. He immediately chose Edgedancer (I started with Lift's Interlude 9 from my audible copy snd bought Arcanum in Audible since he could then listen to other stories.) He dared Lift and the story. We decided after Reckoners he is going to listen to Stormlight (yay! will be my 3rd time (1 reads, 2 listens) since he wants more from that world. Wait until he discovers the others.

 

The report requires that it be a travel brochure advertising 2+ site and giving 2+ events from the book. It should have illustrations for cover and various sites either from the book or approximations.

 

It is due tomorrow, we mapped out talking about Yeddaw via Light Orphanage and the Grand Incidium with if I can fit it, Bronze Palace from Interlude. If anyone has other suggestions, that's fine. He plans to write about the pancake festival ;) and treat the whole thing as some of stormin' "pilgrimage" vacation to follow in footsteps of the "Knight Radiant of Azir, Lift"

 

I found for him the B&W Illustration of Lift skimming outside of the carved Yeddaw drawing. I found a pair of good Roshan maps. Not sure if there is any official or fan art of Incidium and/or orphanage. Any tips/links/advice is welcome.

 

 

Thanks all!

I assume you have done this but just in case you may want to check out the coppermind for more information and search Arcanum just in case they missed something.

I'm afraid I haven't seen much more than the B&W drawing from Arcanum Unbounded. There is some Lift fanart out there, but nothing of either nation's environment, as far as I know. Which is a pity, because I think both Azimir and Yeddaw would look great...

Doesn't Yeddaw look like that Emuli city something Dar?  Is there any fan art about that?

Well, putting aside my mild book OCD about reading series out of order, I would suggest either just plain googling 'Stormlight Archive Yeddaw fanart' or just letting your son's creative juices flow, and have him draw the city as he envisions. As for other options, I think the Roshar world map could be pretty useful, along with maybe some Highstorm/Everstorm fan art, as that's a pretty ubiquitous part of Rosharan ecology and environment

Hope this helps! (at least it wil end up better than the one other SA school project I've seen where only one of the 3 key quotes it used was actually from SA)

Sesemalex Dar. Yeddaw is apparently similar to (but less impressive, I think) it, but we don't know anything about other than the description; I am almost completely certain there is no art of it.
