RPG Worldbuilding Tools Public

Created and curated by Jürgen Hubert

A list for role-playing game worldbuilding tools - RPG supplements that assist in the creation and fleshing-out of role-playing game worlds. I accept further submissions for this list - here are some guidelines:

  • The book does not need to focus exclusively on world-building, but should at least have a dedicated chapter for this purpose.
  • Essays on worldbuilding are fine, but random tables that can be used by worldbuilders are ideal.
  • While worldbuilding tools for a specific RPG are fine, they should have some utility beyond this particular game line or setting.
  • If you want to submit a book to this list, it would help me if you write a comment in the book's Bookwyrm entry (or even a full-fledged review) where you explain why it's worthy of inclusion and tag my account (i.e. @juergen_hubert@bookrastinating.com ) so that I can check it out.
