When we’ll get accustomed to the new game setting, we could explore the ground for some theme arguments to develop.
The next months will be Thrilling!

The idea is an ongoing one, and I’ll like to know the community opinion about this topic in the next months when the first book will be published.
Talking at personal level, yes for me too the time budget is tight, but I would like to contribute anyway in submitting and share game material as the time permits. I would like to assemble some game-ready game props (for example adventure seeds, or lore addendum) of manageable short size, in order to optimize time and effort.
About my contributions, I’m more inclined in following the “fill the gaps” line you mentioned. I love to imagine things, keeping the canon material as a solid foundation stone to use as reference.
About a Calidar “tile” left to the fans to play, I think that maybe it could be a too much ask to the author. Calidar is his creature, and I don’t feel that it could be somehow “right” to ask for. What do you think about?
As a personal matter of fondness to a special Calidar place, maybe it’s likely I’ll put some more special effort in assembling fanon game material to share (always in the “fill in the gaps” style) pertinent to the Calidar’s isle which I named during the KS campaign. We’ll see when the isles will show up in the future supplements.
Turning back on track, talk about the general fanon support.
At a global level, when some fanon ideas will pop-up and stock on the forum, I think it would be great to think together about a website to let game ideas get better visibility.
I imagine this website as an “entry-point” for downloading Calidar fanon game material (unless Bruce will plan to build up an official World of Calidar website and create a fanon section for the community, which actually I don’t know).
The subject here is Calidar World, so, in my humble opinion, the website should host all the Calidar fanon game material in the broadest form: fanon “fill in the gap” style, fanon “alternative visions” style, and should accept game material for whichever game system ruleset.
Building up the website, maintaining, and think about a friendly peer-review for help and criticism is left to be brainstormed, and I would like to know the forum users’ opinion about. I imagine the website as the Community’s Calidar webiste, not “personals” one, obviously!
Thank you about the idea of a Living Calidar campaign. I didn’t get on that, but I’ll add to the above list left to be discussed.
About this subject, are you thinking about it at a general level (assembling periodically short game scenarios and provide local character creation to let people around the world play with it), or a more structured one? (gather local coordinators all around the world to arrange feedbacks about gaming events, listing game ranks etc…).
We have to see how much people here would be interested in getting into this, but the idea is intriguing. Aside the LG Campaign, I don’t remember about a Living Mystara Campaign… it has ever been made at fan level?

What do you think? Even if it’s early to talk about, I would share some ideas with Piazza’s members

I think that fans may need to take the long view on this. There is only one Bruce Heard, and the setting is still waiting to come out. The main thing, right now is to get it out of the door. Once the setting is actually out there, fans can help support it, but I'm guessing that the rate that Bruce can get new canon produced is going to be limited by time and the size of the fanbase.
People need to know what the canon is about, to build fanon that works well with it, so I think there will be a bit of a delay before people that want to make fanon can get to work.
