Anybody have any general advice, dos and don'ts of world building? Anything that made your life easier/harder while attempting to do so? What did you do first/middle/last? Just...anything you found that worked better, or well, or didn't work. What's most/more/less/least important? What flows from other things most easily?
I've got a lot of...ideas. A general mood seems to escape me, but I think I can even get around that a bit. This is mostly D&D related, though any other experiences with other systems/worlds/universes that could apply would also be helpful. Thanks in advance.
