Latest Release: Building Worlds 2

A minimalist 96-page guide with prompts to help you develop settings for any tabletop roleplaying system.

Worldbuilding can be a lot of fun. Whether you’re planning a campaign, designing your own tabletop roleplaying game, or just exercising your creativity with no set purpose in mind, developing a setting of your very own is deeply satisfying. You can spend hours, days, or years adding details and creating a world with no limits but your imagination.

Building Worlds 2 contains a series of prompts to help you increase the breadth and depth of your roleplaying setting. Develop every area of your setting, or just focus on the element you’ll need for player character backgrounds and the campaigns you plan to run. This book shows you how to draw worldbuilding ideas from the system of your choice, and how to use character options, implied setting features, and the events of adventures to expand the setting into the world of your dreams.


Dancing Lights Press is a lo-fi publisher of tabletop roleplaying systems and system-agnostic creative aids, including the best selling Building series, the DoubleZero action thriller system, and Hippogryph, a fantasy story game system with traditional  roots. Our products embrace a minimalist aesthetic in design and presentation because roleplaying is an activity, not a collection of expensive rulebooks.


The Building Series

The Building Series is a line of bestselling creative aids for tabletop roleplayers. Each volume focuses on one aspect of roleplaying, like character development, worldbuilding, or adventure design. The books are system-agnostic, meaning they were not written for one specific set of mechanics, genre, or setting. The examples provided are high-level and generic, allowing you to adapt and apply them to the roleplaying system of your choice.


DoubleZero System

DoubleZero is a percentile based, skill-driven tabletop roleplaying system. It is designed to emulate the action thriller genre, things like the Die Hard movies, Jack Ryan books and films, and the grittier entries in the James Bond franchise. It can be used for any sort of “realistic” modern setting that doesn’t lean into magic, the supernatural, or superpowers. 


Hippogryph System

Hippogryph is a d20-based, story-driven tabletop fantasy roleplaying system. It is the collision of the D20 System and Fate RPG, but like the legendary creature it is more than the sum of its parts. This isn’t off-brand D&D with Fate aspects stapled on, nor is it a collection of feats, spells, and class abilities translated into Fate terms. Hippogryph is a unique system that blends established legacy fundamentals with flexible, DIY story game ideals.
