We need to map out the world!

Map out your world. Geography doesn't seem important at first, but it tends to shape long periods of history. It will define your world's boundaries and shape the psychologies of its people. Which cities are seafaring? Which cities are landlocked? Which people were the first to receive foreigners?

Create a naming style for you world. Will everyone have names like Ulfgar and Heimdall? Or will they be named Smith and Thatcher?


Create a "Bible" of your world with all of the important historical characters and events. Who were the big players when your world was created? A farmer who was martyred? An alien race that died out?


Decide who the characters that enter the world as players will be. Are they natives or travelers to a distant land? Decide who the characters they meet are, and how those characters' actions are shaped by their history and culture.

Create a flow of events. Decide what big events will intervene in your world and when. When will the meteor strike Earth? At what time will Mt. Righteous finally unleash it fatal power?

Provide distinguishing features in your world at the various locations. For instance, an abandoned tower in one area and a bustling fish market in another.
