LESSON Modern Worldbuilding - Building a School

Discussion in 'CREATING WORLDS & SETTINGS' started by Minibit, May 20, 2014.

  1. A great way to add more depth to your run-of-the-mill Highschool or College/Uni roleplay is to give more thought to the setting! Here in the worldbuilding guild, building settings and adding more depth to the playing field is what we do, so get ready to get grilled!

    Try to answer as many questions about your fictional school as you can; add more if you want! Remember that a setting is more than the rooms and furniture, it's the history behind it and 'why' behind it as well as the things that take place in those rooms. Don't feel limited to one-word or one-sentence answers; give as much detail as you want.
