Welcome to the first article of my new Worldbuilding series. This, in many ways, is a sequel to my previous Worldbuilding series. Unlike the last one, which focused on Geography and Map Making, this series will cover everything else that goes into Worldbuilding. The goal with this is to be able to answer questions that many other Worldbuilding sources will ask you. This series will help educate you on a variety of topics that are important to designing your world that you likely never thought about before.

I will soon start writing a fantasy series and started trying to picture the world where my story takes place, but was having difficulty. I decided that I would try to draw it out, but I lacked the ability to draw and even if I try to fake it, I didn’t know how to make my land appear organic and nearly random. While there are many tools out there to help out with that, most of them cost money.
Money is a funny thing for us writers. Generally our primary focus when it comes to spending money is on professional editing, cover design, and any tools that help us release a book. So making a map of our world and designing further elements that may not be in our initial story is frivolous. It is nice to have a map, but not crucial. But wouldn’t you like one anyways?
