Worldbuilding believable cultures is tough - and it's even harder when you're building Fantasy or Sci Fi societies like Elves, Orcs, Aliens or your own homebrew races or sapient species!

Janet's 5 step guide (in 2 parts) takes you through worldbuilding these social structures from the smallest unit, the partnership, through the family, dynasty, tribe and all the way up society at large. Use this system to build cultures for your novel settings, homebrew TTRPG worlds or for anything else you're worldbuilding!

This video deals with why defining your cultures and societies is important, how biology affects your societies and how your families, clans and dynasties are structured.

Check out part two: https://youtu.be/H3K8EP2ZQTE for fictive kin, tribes and "families of families", and finally a little about castes, classes, and feudal systems.

Watch to the end for bloopers, and make sure you like and subscribe for more worldbuilding content!
