Today’s Topic – Part One Specific Questions to ask yourself when creating a new fantasy worldbuilding project
Questions are at the heart of any world building. Back in episode 7 started the conversation how I start creating a naturalistic framework fantasy world. I start with what I like to call the Basics Breakdown. I do this to create an inventory of ideas that I what to make sure are considered when I create my world.
Once I have identified the list of idea, I am free to start exploring the ideas. Now, I never lock myself into needing to use the ideas. However, I can refer to them to see if they can inspire me along the way.
In this episode, Michael and I will revisit the Basics Breakdown and ask specific questions and then talk about the answers I would give to the questions about my fantasy world, Gardul. We cover the areas of Rules for a fantasy universe, figure out what is unique about the solar system Gardul is in, and what are important about the physical geography of Gardul. We are looking for ways to differentiate it from Earth; the only planet we know to compare it to.
