About

What is this blog about?

On Eryn Worlds I share my thoughts on the topic of worldbuilding, provide you with tutorials and tools and I will present parts of my own works. The purpose of my articles is to give you not only an understanding of worldbuilding, but to provide you with ideas and new perspectives to form your own fantasy and SciFi worlds as diverse and interesting as possible.

Where does the name Eryn Worlds come from?

Eryn is the Sindarin word for forest. It was the name of my publishing company and in this way I can keep a little bit of the memory.

Who writes this stuff?

My name is Christian and I've been at home in fantasy since I was a kid. As a teenager, wearing a Starfleet uniform and Vulcan ears, I attended the local trekdinner and later founded the 'Science Fiction & Fantasy Friends Ingolstadt' with like-minded people. More than a quarter of a century ago I immersed myself for the first time with 'The Dark Eye' into the world of Pen&Paper roleplaying games and have been playing LARP since 2008. In the past, I was a publisher, later became a book trader and I now offer courses for authors as a lecturer. Most frequently read? Barbara Hambly's Darwath Triology: The Time of the Dark, The Walls of Air, The Armies of Daylight.
