Worldbuilding #4 — Ocean, Continents, Lakes, and Islands

worldbuilding logo2Welcome to another edition of the Madness Worldbuilding series. By this point, we have a basic map. Doesn’t seem like much. While I am excited by the promise it has, I think we need to add a little colour to it.

In this tutorial, we are going to do some steps that are necessary for later steps, which you’ll be glad we did. These elements will help us to clearly define the Oceans, the Continents, Lakes, and Islands. Read more

Worldbuilding #5a – Sun

starMost of what I do for my worldbuilding series is for fantasy writers. Most of my Science Fiction writers tend to use a copy of Earth and don’t really need a map of their world. Still, whether you are a Sci-fi or Fantasy writer, it is still nice to have a start of your world.

Worldbuilding #2 – Tools

Welcome to the second edition of the Worldbuilding series. I apologize for the delay of this article, as I have several other things to do and the last article was information and not so much building.

This article unfrotunately will be informational as well, but I promise you, the next article we will get our hands dirty. In fact, think of worldbuild as making pottery. Now we can take a lump of clay and start molding our shape, but at best, it will never be fantastic. So in order to have great pottery, we need a pottery wheel.
