World Building


  • 30 days of world building - index

  • index of country and city names

  • Patricia C Wrede's worldbuilder questions - very good prompts for world builders

  • Article on world building

  • world building reference at thescriptorium

  • General references from the seventhsanctum

  • Holly Lisle - developing the fictional world through mapping


From "I am Tasha" (2011)


  • Limyaeel's Rants More can be found here and here.

  • A Magical Society: Guide to Mapping This one is worth the download, I swear it is. If you want to create a realistic map, this should be your Bible. There is also a longer version of this that includes notes on the Ecology and Culture, but you have to pay for it.

  • Creating Fantasy and Sci-Fi Worlds This is the most helpful world-building tutorial I have found online. Period.

  • What's the Magic Word: Defining the Sources, Effects, and Cost of Magic

  • The Language Construction Kit Great for those who want to create their own language

  • More language construction - omniglot

  • The Educated World Building Guide I believe this one is actually run by Nanoers working on worldbuilding.

  • Magical World Builder's Guide Written by the same chick who did the 30 Days of Worldbuilding guide.

  • Encyclopedia Mythica You want a myth or folktale? They're here.

  • The History of Costume An old book from the 1880s. Useful for researching period dress.

  • Fighting and Swordplay Essays Essays from the Association for Renaissance Martial Arts about the topic.

  • The link appears to be broken at the moment, but the site called the "Mythopoet's Manual" is another good resource.

  • JPWB's Fictional World Building Model Another alternate theory about world-building

  • Historical Costuming Resources These are from the girl who did all of the historically accurate Disney princesses that have been floating around online, so they're definitely legit sources.

  • The Mary Sue Litmus Test Always.

  • Maps Workshop Another great mapping source from Holly Lisle

  • Medieval Demographics Made Easy To show you exactly how many people would be in that poor rocky village halfway up the coast in medieval times.
