I find it a lot easier when I make worldbuilding notes to write it as if I am writing a story. Rather than just making some bullet points, I write a few paragraphs which explains who a specific person/place is, etc. I have found that these paragraphs often have an archaic feel to them even though I’m not setting out trying to write in such a tone.

I can then file the notes in my story bible, Scrivener file, or both depending on what story it is I am busy with.

Here is an example of one of these worldbuilding notes which focuses on the Airahna found in the world of Airtha-Eyrassa in which The Ruon Chronicles takes place.

 The Airus and the Airahna

 And it came to be that, after the mortal humans were created by Agrai and was sent to populate the lands of Airtha-Eyrassa, that some of the Airus fell in love with them and children were begotten. These children, though not all longer living than the “normal” humans, did have Talent which were above that of the humans.

These mortals became known as the Airahna – The Airus Ahna – or those with an Airus soul/the people of the Airus. These Airahna were of both sexes and of all the people of Airtha-Eyrassa and not just limited to one people.

However, it is said that Agrai smiled on these mortals even though they were of mixed blood and that is why they received so much Talent. Others, however, saw those of mixed blood as abominations and wanted to rid the world of them. Because of this many of the children thus created were spirited away from where they were born and some of them found their way to the Sanctuaries. It was from these people that the first of the Wislic were chosen. And so it was that many of the Airahna grew up without even knowing that they were Airahna. For, also, many of the Airus found it too painful to stay with the families because of their short life spans – they were able to see many generations of their offspring live and die without growing older themselves. Many even forgot which of the Airus’ blood it was that flowed in their veins.

It became less and less common for these children to be born as the Airus kept more and more to themselves and went to live in the far-off places or made for themselves hidden homes.
