An average gamer is sitting at his desk, scribbling "My setting" on the first page of his notepad. He has prepared in advance: in his mind, he has a plan for the setting, its history, inklings of geography and names. He’s read some guides to creating fantasy worlds as well. He knows a lot of PnP and video game settings, has browsed the websites of complex alternate worlds, and by reading forums he’s learned how experienced authors create worlds of their own. He sips his beverage of choice, reaches for the paper and begins to draw an outline of the continent, which…
He shouldn’t start with the map? Very well, he opens a text editor, lets his imagination go wild, and starts to create his original and innovative world. The heading of the first chapter reads "History"…
Starting with the history is senseless? Okay, so our would-be author starts with describing mechanical differences which will give the setting unique…
What should he start with? Geography? Monsters? Art? Iconic characters? Perhaps with a description of daily life or the major power groups of the setting?
No, what he should start with is this book, explaining in detail how to create your own RPG setting.
This is Worldcrafting, a collection of essays by Andrzej “Enc” Stój, describing the process of creating an RPG game world. Although it refers to Savage Worlds game mechanics, it’s system-independent. And the book contains essays by other experienced authors and designers, too.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
