The Art of World Building: Creating Breakout Fantasy and Science Fiction Worlds In Stories and Gaming
In every episode of The Art of World Building podcast, host Randy Ellefson discusses how authors, screenwriters, game designers, gamers, and hobbyists can do world building better, faster, and have more fun doing it. Popular topics include creating gods, species, animals, plants, races, monsters, undead, continents, settlements, kingdoms, star systems, time, history, cultures, magic systems, religions, the supernatural, naming everything, and travel estimates for land, sea, and space.
When you write a novel or build a game, you have to design a whole world. A world with culture, hierarchy, taboos, economy, fairness, traditions, careers, and origin stories. In Full Worlds, we hear authors and creators explain the worlds they built, without the story getting in the way.
