About Us

Valian Chronicles is a website and blogsite about the Valian fantasy world.  It is a cooperatively build fantasy world, led by the world builder and author Rob Washburn. You are welcome to browse one of the largest and most interesting fantasy settings, and in you like, participate in building, and perhaps even take charge of a portion of it.

We create short stories, adventure settings, new monsters, novels, traps & tricks, and discussions about how to write and publish fantasy. Everyone is welcome — fantasy fans, fantasy writers, and artists. Come join in.

Come join us. Read a bit, and if the mood strikes you, help us continue the creation of this fantasy world. You can apply to have one of the villages of Valian assigned to you by contacting Rob Washburn at and asking for a piece of the world. As long as you keep the content of your posts in the spirit of the articles in the “World Setting” section of this website, and as long as you post at least once per quarter, you are guaranteed to retain ownership of your geographic part of Valian.

You always retain ownership of your writing! We invite you to practice your writing. Seek input from others. Improve your writing by participating in this unique writing group which is dedicated to fantasy writing.
