Creating A Species: A guide and helpful tips.
Introduction
Creating a species isn't the easiest thing to do, and I know. I've made multiple species before. You may not know it, but design isn't the only thing that matters in creating a species. Just like humans, and fairies, and dragons: there's a lot more to a them than what they look like. What they eat, and maybe even what they believe in plays a big role on the species' life style.

Chapter 3 “World Building” – Section 1 “History”
“Man is explicable by nothing less than all his history. Without hurry, without rest, the human spirit goes forth from the beginning to embody every faculty, every thought, every emotion, which belongs to it in appropriate events.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Essay I, History  
From the events which take place in your novel, to the culture of the people groups present, to the attitudes present in the characters, to the nature of the cosmos and the natural consequences of actions, everything in your story will be rooted in the history of the world. Each of your characters will start out as the sum of everything they've experienced, th

Chapter 3 “World Building” – Section 2 “Maps”
“I wisely started with a map, and made the story fit (generally with meticulous care for distances). The other way about lands one in confusions and impossibilities, and in any case it is weary work to compose a map from a story.” - J.R.R. Tolkien
If you've ever read or written a story that seemed unintentionally ethereal—where the descriptions did not paint a vivid picture of the setting but instead a more vague dreamscape that the characters meandered along aimlessly—then you know the problem of not having a real and tangible setting for your story. The problem is not simply that there isn't enough description for the r
