For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities.

This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.
