This is a basic setting skeleton that I use for my Image Setting Challenge series! Essentially, you can translate those character-making skills of yours into world-building ones by applying the same approach to construction of a "character sheet" for your setting. This is just a simple, essential-building-blocks deal. You can use this as a guideline when crafting your setting or use it to organize information after the fact! Copy and paste the sheet below: Location/World Name: What is your setting called? Genre: E.g., fantasy, sci-fi, or etc. Scale: How big is your setting? Is this a planet, continent, city, someone's backyard? Geography/Appearance: What does your setting look like? What landmarks does it have? Technology/Magic: Does your setting have magic? If so, how does it work? How advanced is the technology? Inhabitants/Culture: Who lives in this setting? What is society like? Religion and customs? Flora/Fauna: What sort of animals, plants, and other non-human life are found in your setting? General History: Sum up important events in your setting's past. Current Events: What is currently happening in your setting that we should know about? Extras: Anything else you can think of to add!
