Fantasy world building. The possible considerations are infinite. Choices must be made. Some loom large and have great implications. Some are easy and require minimal thought. For instance, most authors leave the natural world largely intact and water means oceans, seas, lakes, streams, and liquid for making tea (if there’s tea). Humans? If yes, then there’s one group that comes predesigned.
See? Millions of decisions that often aren’t decisions at all.
