Coppermind Objectives Return!

After a two-year hiatus, we’re back with another round of Coppermind Objectives! We know that The Lost Metal isn’t too far off, and we’ll be releasing a series of Mistborn objectives when the release gets closer to prepare for that. But for now, there are plenty of other pages that need work, including Cytoverse, Stormlight Archive, and even the Reckoners. There are tons of ways to help, so we hope you’ll join in!

We’ll happily accept any assistance we can get, so don’t be shy. If you're new to editing the Coppermind, don't worry; we'll help you out with guides and plenty of assistance. You don't need experience or expertise, just the will to help out! We'll also give you Coppermind awards, because there’s nothing more fun than fake internet points.

Without further ado, here are our objectives for June and July. If you find something you'd like to help with, claim it here, and let us know if you have any questions! If nothing in the list below catches your eye, there are leftover objectives from previous months up for grabs in the claim spreadsheet. If you sign up for something, please say hi on Discord so that we can offer support and touch base with you!

Larger Projects

Let's start with some larger projects. These objectives will definitely require some research and a good bit of writing. Anyone is welcome to take them - we just don't want you to feel like you've bitten off more than you can chew.

1. Superiority

First up is the Superiority, the giant multi-species nation that governs most of the known universe in the Cytoverse books. This page already has all the information from Skyward and Starsight on it, but needs to be updated with Cytonic and the three Skyward Flight novellas.

2. Detritus

The Detritus page barely has any information on it right now, despite all we know about both the planet and its platforms. The page needs info from all the Cytoverse books, including the novellas. If you’re confused about how to organize the information on such a broad topic, we’ll be happy to help!

3. Shallan’s Rhythm of War History

Despite being one of the main characters in the Stormlight Archive, Shallan’s History section is very lacking when it comes to info from Rhythm of War. It only has a few short paragraphs, but her actions in the book need to be explained in greater detail. This job is straightforward, but will require a good deal of reading and research. 

4. Earth (Reckoners)

Reckoners isn’t Brandon’s most popular series, but it still needs plenty of work! There is plenty of information to be unpacked about the world itself, but right now there’s not much on the page besides a list of the different Fractured States. This one will require a good deal of research, but it badly needs some work.

5. Morriumur

Morriumur is part of the main crew in Starsight, yet their page is quite lacking. They don’t have a history section or a relationship section at all. They have an Appearance and Personality section and an Attributes and Abilities section, but even those need more filling out. This page needs a bunch of info, but it also has the advantage of Morriumur only appearing in one book so far.

6. Vapor

Similar to Morrimur, Vapor is an important character who only appears in Starsight, but needs lots of info. She only has about a paragraph in her history section, and not much else. She’ll need all the various sections filled out with info from Starsight.

7. Trackt

The Trackts are a fairly important element in White Sand, serving as the law enforcement in Lossand. Their page barely has any information as of now, but there’s a fair bit to be unpacked from the books. This would include their organization and how they operate, as well as their notable activities. 

Smaller Tasks

These are objectives that won’t take as much heavy research and writing, and won’t take as long to do. Many of these may take some more careful digging, which can be made a lot easier if you have the ebook for the relevant book.

1. Rock’s Relationships

Rock is a popular character from the Stormlight Archive, and most of his page is pretty well filled out. However, he doesn’t have a Relationships section, despite having a full family, and close bonds with various members of Bridge Four. This project will require a decent amount of research, but should be fun to do and not take super long.

2. Shu-Korath

Shu-Korath is one of the major religions on Sel in Elantris, and already has a decent amount of information on its page. However, it only has one citation on the entire page. The page could use a bit more filling out, particularly about their beliefs, and it needs citations for the whole page.

3. Teshav Khal

Brightlady Teshav Khal is the wife of General Khal, and the scribe for both him and Dalinar. She appears several times in Oathbringer, and has a few appearances in Rhythm of War, where she accompanies Dalinar to Emul. Her history section just needs updating from both books, and should be fairly straightforward. If you have Oathbringer or Rhythm of War in ebook form, using the search function will make the job a lot easier. (And if you don’t, many of our staff have the ebooks, and would be happy to help)

4. Stoff

Stoff is a Vice Admiral in the DDF, and an important character in Evershore. He currently only has one sentence on his page, despite there being quite a bit to cover about him. He’ll need an Appearance and Personality section and a History section, though likely not Relationships or Attributes and Abilities sections. He only appears in Evershore, which is only a novella, so his page won’t take super long to complete.

5. Peg

Peg, a pirate in Cytonic, is an important character for most of the book. She has her early history on her page already, but will need the rest of it filled out, as well as the other usual sections. 

6. Rinakin

Rinakin doesn’t do a whole lot for most of ReDawn, but is still a fairly important character to the story. He already has well written Appearance and Personality and Attributes and Abilities sections, but is lacking both History and Relationships sections (though the latter will likely just need to include Alanik). This one will be pretty short, and again, having the ebook will likely make the job much easier. 

7. Nedd Strong’s History

Nedd is one of the original members of Skyward Flight, and still quite active. His other sections are quite good, but his History section needs updating with info from all three Skyward Flight novellas.

8. Arturo Mendez’s History

Like Nedd, Arturo is one of the original members of Skyward Flight, and is still quite active. His other sections are fully filled out, but his History section needs updating with info from all three Skyward Flight novellas.

9. Matthew Cobb

Last but not least, we have Admiral Cobb, another Cytoverse character. His other sections are fairly good, but his History section needs updating with info from Starsight, as well as all three novellas. Four books is a lot, but he doesn’t do a lot of active things in those books like he does in Skyward, so it shouldn’t be too big of a task. 

What’s in it for me?

We want to motivate people to help, so we will be giving out Coppermind awards for the users in the coming months with the most edits, and we'll also give out awards if you contributed to one of these items. They'll be on your user page for all to see.

How do I start?

The most important thing is to be bold! Content is hard to write, but we can always format your stuff if it doesn't quite match conventions. MediaWiki notation may appear scary at first, but the best way to learn is through experience. If you're interested, we have lots of guides to help, which you can find here: Help:Contents.

It does very much help to have ebooks so you can find instances of a specific word or person (this is extremely helpful for minor characters). If you have physical books, ask us and we can help you pin down chapters so you don't need to reread the whole text. We can also direct you towards some good articles to use as a go-by.

Come join us on the dedicated Coppermind Discord, or chat in the #coppermind channel on the 17th Shard Discord. We are really happy to help!
