In the novels I'm writing, I started with a few websites that I had found some valuable information, I have since, found other sites to tickle the imagination and exploration of worlds. I would like to share those with you.
Basilicus I found this site intersesting for its star system and religion section
This next site is one of my favorites as I used it before I started writing my first book.
30 Days of World Building This site has things from cataclysms to character development.
For the D&D lover in me, and the fun it brings:
Cruinne's D&D Reading Room This one is great for games and writing
Things worlds have:
- The Land
- Society & Culture
- Magic & Science
No one could forget everyones favorite go-to
They have almost anything you would need in each part of fantasy writing.
And to add a few helpers I have E. F. Jace's Blog with info on Government and other writing help
as well as a side site Wold Building
I hope some if not all of this helps. I know it worked for me and when I turn my world into a campaign for D&D I know I'll be using the sites much more.
