In an attempt to get back to regular, or even semi-regular, blog posting today’s world-building list takes a departure from the normal format. Instead of the regular “10 questions” format, today will be a meta-list of sorts, giving you some basic ideas of what types of world-building questions you might want to ask or what topics might be covered as you work or make your game or story world.

This list is by no means exhaustive and is meant to be a starting point for your ideas.

  2. Biomes
  3. Creation of the World
  4. Deitys
  5. Environments
  6. Factions
