I’ve taken a break from tech posts for the holiday weeks to focus my spare time on the fantasy campaign world I’ve been working on.
I haven’t posted about my world building project in quite a while, but I have been working hard on fleshing it out. I’ve got several docs and spreadsheets put together. I also recently found a website called World Anvil that helps world builders organize and post their content online in a well organized, wiki-style format.
Castles have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. As an American, I grew up having no real castles anywhere near that I could visit. At least, nothing even close to what I pictured the word castle to mean. So I spent my time reading any book I could get my hands on and watching any show that talked about castles.
The history of the new world can be divided into two phases. There is the time of the great exploration. For thousands of years after the continent was discovered, travelers came across the sea from the other three continents, each settling lands according to their people. Smaller kingdoms come and go, but four great kingdoms prevail in the east, west, south and center of the continent.
As I mentioned initially, the focus of this campaign setting will be one of four main continents that occupy this world. This continent consists of coastal regions along the western, southern and eastern regions which are separated from the inner main continent by long mountain ranges that are mostly impassable.
