Using Notion For Worldbuilding

Using Notion For Worldbuilding

Salutations all!! If, like me, you struggle to keep track of all your worldbuilding notes, inspiration and ideas..then you may want to read on!


Only recently, I stumbled across a thing called Notion (I've also just stumbled for no apparent reason, but I put that down to the aging process). In case you've been living under the same rock, or abyssal plane as me and Notion is new to you; Its a free notebook app that allows you to create pages, entries and databases and link them all together. Its like having all the functionality of a wiki, but being able to make it visually much more appealing and engaging! 


I've been playing around with it over the past few weeks and I have to say, its been a game changer, not only in terms of keeping my worldbuilding notes, history and lore organised and linked together, but in terms of making the process much more fun and something I no longer break into a cold sweat over. I know that by using Notion I can create a coherent, ever growing document that keeps track of everything I need to.


get a free worldbuilding template 

To help out, I decided to create a Worldbuilding Template, which you can grab for free by clicking here. You are more than welcome to use it , edit and customize it to suit your own fact that's precisely why I made it! There's also a video below where I go over in more depth what Notion is, an overview of the template I created and how to go about editing and customizing it.  


You can learn more about Notion and download free by visiting the official Notion Website. Once you've got Notion, you can then download and start using the Aesoterik Worldbuilding Notebook.


You can check out a video below where I go over what Notion is, how I use it and an overview of the Template and how to customise it to best suit you!


So if you're a Dungeon Master, building a world for a D&D, Pathfinder or other TTRPG campaign or homebrew world, or an author struggling to keep track of everything, I strongly recommend checking Notion out. Its free and you can download it for your computer, tablet and access it on your mobile phone! Hopefully you find it useful!

Until next time, Godspeed!
