We hear you’re new to worldbuilding.
Don’t panic. We can help.
Have you ever imagined a fantastic world, all your own? Worldbuilding is the art of making fictional worlds. These worlds might be the settings for stories, or for movies, or for games. Many people even do it just as a hobby.
Some people create fantastic geographies for their worlds, some people create elaborate cultures with histories that span eons. Some create maps, some create characters, others create languages. Many do a little bit of everything.
Don’t let the vocabulary confuse or constrain you. Your ‘world’ may actually be an entire galaxy, full of all kinds of inhabited planets and moons.
The worlds people create might be fantasy settings, or they may be science fiction solar systems. They may even be highly detailed and realistic variations of our own world, like a fictional neighborhood nestled in the middle of present-day New York City or a small island country off the coast of South Africa.
Whatever you have in mind, we’re here to help. And this tutorial will get you started.
