Project Marblearth would be nothing without the marble sports fanbase: a robust community that is always eager to engage with the content of Jelle’s Marble Runs and bring it to the next level. The members of the community that have contributed to Project Marblearth are featured on this page.

Stynth

Editor-In-Chief

When Stynth discovered Jelle’s Marble Runs in December of 2017, Team Momo’s narrative of pushing through adversity inspired him to become a fan of both the team and the channel. As Stynth became involved in the community, he joined the Project Canon initiative, organized by the former JMR Committee, with Mellacus and Novawolf. The project aimed to give every marble team and athlete a narrative and continued inspiring Stynth to focus on world-building. During his time on the Committee, Stynth published a story for every active Marble League team (a “RetRollSpective”) and wrote other articles to expand the narrative of JMR.

Stynth began Project Marblearth to share his passion for lore writing with the robust community of marble sports fans that welcomed him four years ago. While he wrote many of the articles included within the JMR Expanded Universe, Stynth contends that the stories within them belong to the JMR community. Through Project Marblearth, he is excited to see those stories come together and come to life in new ways.

When he isn’t writing or editing lore, Stynth is also a Marblebase Discord moderator, a subreddit moderator, and a fan joining Time Check in the grandstands to cheer on marble sports athletes!

Edu G. J.

Managing Director

When he discovered marble sports in September of 2019, Edu was impressed by the vibrant colors and the performance of the Raspberry Racers. After a year of growing interest in marbles, JMR, and its lore, he decided to interact with the inner community, which eventually led to a bigger involvement with the channel and his collaboration in the project.

Phoenix

Managing Director

Phoenix discovered the magic of marble sports around 2017, but it was only later on that the intricacies and the community captured them to entirely engage with the Discord community. Enjoying the sports for what they were, Phoenix became a fan of all the teams and their activity on the Discord community was merely the spark to a long-serving passion for getting involved with other fans and finding out about the lore of each team. Initially known in the community for just long paragraphs of “wisdom”, as well as always being there for a random conversation about anything, Phoenix found themselves becoming more and more interested in writing and creativity to do with marbles.

Phoenix joined the Project Marblearth author team in early 2021 after inspiration to share their creative passions and help flesh out the world of Marblearth, while also contributing photography and artwork.

Phoenix also moderates the Marblebase Discord community, and away from a life of marbles, enjoys acting, singing, music, and dancing. They have high hopes for the future of Project Marblearth and are glad to be a part of it on its journey.

Hello there! I’m The Emperor, a longtime Team Galactic fan. Ever since December 2017, I’ve been a fan of JMR, and am thrilled to be helping the channel out with the Project!

Nonagon

Creative Director

Nonagon came across Jelle’s Marble Runs in June 2020 and fell in love with the Crazy Cat’s Eyes the moment they pranced across the balance beam to win the first event of the 2020 Qualifiers with a 407. She has since gone on to write witty commentary on marble sports for the Felynia Times under her marble persona Violet Eye, contributing to the JMR Subreddit as a columnist and later as a moderator. She is excited to contribute to the lore and narratives of the beautiful marbles of JMR as a Marblearth contributor and creative director. When not excessively rewatching Crazy Cat’s Eyes victories in JMR videos, Nonagon can be found playing the oboe, listening to and arranging music, watching Ghibli movies, or asleep.

Smacg13 first came across marble sports in early 2019 and quickly became a fan of the Green Ducks. In their quest for more information on marbles, they came across the JMR wiki and began to add to it, eventually becoming one of the admins. They mainly use their experience as a chronicler of marble sports to edit articles.

Ghostly

Writer

Ghostly has been a fan of Jelle’s Marble Runs since 2017, and in the 2020 Showdown, fell in love with the Turtle Sliders. Most known for his undying adoration for the Turtle Sliders, many would say he is the number 1 Turtle Sliders fan in the world. Ghostly spends his days ranting about the Turtle Sliders, Hollow Knight, just a couple of cards, and many other random topics whilst making unfunny jokes on the Marblebase Discord. Somehow that allowed him to become a moderator, which in turn allowed him to create this cool puzzle for 12 Days of Marbles. Don’t ask how, nobody knows. Thrilled to be helping out with the Project, Ghostly will put to writing exactly why the Turtle Sliders are objectively the best team in the Marble League! Go Turtle Sliders! #ShellShocked!

A longtime admirer of Stynth’s work, Hector’s most excited to be able to work on Sand Marble Rally lore, finally giving it the attention it deserves.

Roilan Estates

Writer

Roilan found JMR in late 2017 right before Marble League 2018 started. He is an avid Raspberry Racers and Deep Ocean fan who can scarcely go a day without mentioning either Marble League 2019 or Sand Marble Rally 2018 Race 1. He loves statistics and the analytical side of marble sports is what drew him to the community. In addition, he has a passion for writing and is excited to be contributing to Project Marblearth.

I have been watching the League and supporting the Limers non-stop since 2017, and am an aspiring lore-writer and photographer! I am very invested in lore teams and competitions, especially the Fruit Circuit. I look forward to exploring the JMR Expanded Universe!

Bookity

Editor, Designer

When entering the Project Marblearth scene, Bookity came in with only Algodoo as a means of marble-making, and they still use it, for some reason. They look up to Jelle in how those with autism can do amazing things. They go through a world of pain, for they are a Kobalts fan. Whenever not doing stuff in Marblearth, they like playing the drums, watching streamers, eating cheese, losing in their favorite games, praising Cerulean, and most importantly taking care of their three Toadette plushes. Beware of them, because their idiocy can be contagious.

Skyfall_707

Editor

Skyfall is a hardcore Team Galactic fan that was introduced to JMR by John Oliver and has been hooked ever since! He stumbled across Stynth’s lore one day and fell in love with the worldbuilding and detail put into each edition, and when he heard that Project Marblearth was accepting applications, it seemed like an obvious decision to apply. Outside of the project, Skyfall has dabbled in many aspects of the JMR world including stat keeping, fan accounts and even the Let It Roll podcast.
