Welcome to another day in the A to Z Blogging Challenge. 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.What kind of vocations do people pursue in your world? Carpenters? Soldiers? Teachers? Are they born into careers? Do they have to be tested or apprenticed to enter a profession? Magicians?
What do your characters consider valuable? Land ownership? Gold? Jewels? The number of men in their army? Something less tangible such as personal freedom or independence? Will your characters change their idea of what is valuable as the story progresses?
What interesting vocation would you pick for your characters? Do you think precious metals and gemstones will always be valuable in human societies?
