Welcome to another day in the A to Z BloggingChallenge. Find the entire list here. My theme this year is world-building. Mostly I’m asking questions that I believe need to be considered whether you creating a medieval fantasy world, a science fiction story or even a contemporary novel. The ideas I present aren’t in a particular order as I had to fit them into the alphabetical order needed. And don’t forget to visit the other blog I’m part of during the A to Z Challenge over at the IWSG. Now onto your world.Superstitions are part of life. You see them still in the contemporary world and they were numerous in a medieval setting. Will your characters have lucky charms, lucky weapons or unlucky days of the week? Will there be odd beliefs about old women living alone with multiple cats? With there be rituals to ward off evil?
Are your characters going to be divided among different social classes? Will there be servants and lords and ladies? Will there be a merchant class, the unskilled laborers and perhaps the old money rich? Is there every marriage or friendship between social classes?
What are the accepted social ethics and moralities of your chosen world? Are people faithful to one person in relationships? Is it acceptable to steal from a neighboring tribe? How are children and servants treated? Is slavery accepted? Do merchants cheat customers?
Do you have a lucky charm? Anything that you feel is unlucky? Do you think our contemporary world still suffers from social class divisions?
