The Evolution of a Government
Updated: Mar 12
During the initial creation process of my world, I created an extremely simple government structure. Nobles ruled, everyone else drooled in essence. Once my hero started interacting with the local government, this structure started bothering me. It's a too rigid to stand the test of time, but I had my empire an old one. So definitely the government needed to change.
I'm very into Roman history, so I drew from my knowledge of the Roman Republic to build a much more sustainable government (after all, the Republic survived five hundred years before Ceaser pulled a dictator on it).
I explain exactly how Rome influenced my thinking in my latest video here:

This video raps up my first theme in world building, which was evolving your world as you need it. My next theme is Building Immersive Cultures: Entertainment! The videos I release on this topic will cover things like gambling, entertainment content and how to use it and sports and games from before.
