Terra Incognito: A Guide to Building the Worlds of Your Imagination

Multiple File Formats

Lao Tzu said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” But the journey of imagination begins with a single idea—one that can shape entire worlds, if you so choose. And no one knows that better than bestselling fantasy author Richard C. White, who brings his expertise for world building to this reference guide for writers interested in crafting their own storytelling environments.

In Terra Incognito, White outlines the detailed steps by which writers can create the sort of countries, populations, governments, and militaries that are essential for building a three-dimensional fantasy world that will engage readers. You’ll learn how to:

• Avoid the pitfalls of naming characters, regions, and countries

• Apply the technique of “outside in” to develop and then refine ideas for your world

• Create a world your readers can relate to, regardless of its technological levels

• Identify how to create backstories and conflict by observing how your world comes together

• Add details to make your story richer without overwhelming your readers

• Identify useful resources for research 

With the inspiration provided by Terra Incognito: A Guide to Building the Worlds of Your Imagination, you’ll soon be on your way to constructing the framework for your own fantasy or science fictional realms—and taking readers along for the journey!

Includes an exclusive inteview with New York Times bestselling fantasy author Tracy Hickman!

Hi, the description doesn't say what file formats are included. Is it just pdf? Or does this book include an epub or mobi version?

It's all three: PDF, mobi, and epub. Thanks for getting in touch!

I really appreciated this book. It was an easy read with lots of details, depth and plot bunnies to chase. It had some new ideas to consider - currency, new forms of government - and made me rethink my ideas on religion... at least on its importance to the people in my stories and how to incorporate their beliefs into cultural backgrounds and character motives. It also made me think about the world beyond the one small continent I started from.

Hi, Ben,

Thanks for the kind words! Your response is exactly what Rich was hoping to hear from writers who order this book. We're both glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the purchase.

I was going to buy this, but then I saw that printing is disabled. That seems quite ridiculous... I'm not going to print out 1,000 copies and sell them on the street corner. I do, however, tend to print out one copy of my PDF purchases so I can read them during my commute.

I'll buy a copy if printing is turned on.

Hi, Jeff,

Point taken, and thanks for your input. I've turned on the printing function, but still retain the no copy/paste function. Hope you enjoy Rich's work, if you still plan on buying it.

Original electronic
Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
