As some of you may be aware, I’ve begun developing an IP I created known as REBOOT. In my journey to create a believable, fantastical, and interesting story that revolves around a number of characters, I’ve started to research the living hell out of everything that has to do with developing an IP and building the world my characters live in.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
I’m pretty excited about it, daunting as the task may be. So far, the more I learn about the process, the more eager I am to build my world. So, I need a place to consolidate my ideas and links and resources.
Congratulations. You get to bear the brunt of that! YAY
Here are some links I’ve found so far that cover worldbuilding. I haven’t even really read through all of these yet, but I hate Chrome’s bookmark feature so I’mma just save all my links here.
