Now being someone who creates quite a few worlds, how do you do it? Do you have a set of guidelines you want fleshed out before you consider it completed enough to adventure in? How much do you borrow between worlds? How much to you map? Go to Comment
As a DM, I wing about 80% of our gaming session. I know the monsters, map and treasure but how to get them there, the descriptions and NPC interaction I do on the fly. For me, I don't think this works well with world creation. I want to give my PC's something more solid for them to wrap their imaginations around.
My problem is that I am not organized and if MoonHunter had some form of set guidelines he uses to create worlds, I would be thrilled if he would pass them on.
I am not looking for anything too fancy, just maybe an outline of sorts. Go to Comment

Those who took up with him, began to walk, a great outpouring of energy to this religious pilgrimage, coming from an impoverished nation with no true direction other than to find relief. Galen professed to his followers that they would find great resources set by his God down on Earth for them, enough to nourish and slate their thirst. Those that fell as he took them across the barren plains of the western reaches, rose again to join the lines. When finally all had died, Galen led them further, praising Nuh-Erell for that first city they came upon and a feast of flesh that lay in wait"
