There are a few different ways to go about making a world. Some people start with an overall concept and work down. Some people just throw things together. Some start with one concept or place and build up from there. The last option is what we are going to be doing in this set of exercises. We will start with one small place and expand from there. I’m not expecting heavily detailed worlds out of this. Nor am I expecting the latter exercises in each set to be done quickly. But these will help you learn how to build quick worlds that can be expanded upon later by simply doing. The first exercise in set 1 is to create an oasis on a desert planet. Simple as that. You can make this as simple or detailed as you like. Don’t make any other part of the world that doesn’t pertain directly to your oasis. Got that? Okay! Go!
