Worldbuilding Wednesday - 7 Deadly Sins, Impatience, & 25 More Things

In the general sense, Worldbuilding for a tabletop RPG setting can be very much like doing the same for any fictional work, be it a novel, a movie, a video game, etc.  I feel some of the information held forth for such other mediums doesn't take into account the idea of sandbox play, though video game settings do to some small extent.  Nevertheless, the foundations underpinning advice given in those areas can often translate well to our hobby so I am adding a few links below to some web articles where such is given.  Enjoy.

First up, io9.com had an article a bit over a year ago on the "7 Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding."  Read more here.


Also, on her blog, Victoria Strauss republished an article of hers from Phantastes, 1998 titled "An Impatient Writer's Approach to World Building."  Find out more here.


Finally, on terribleminds, Chuck Wendig informs us of "25 Things You Should Know about Worldbuilding."  Learn more here.
