I was skimming through some D&D reference articles and decided to post snippet. The paragraph below is just such a perfect fit for me. I will sometimes spend a lot time trying to make my fantasy world's internal consistency as logical with at least a nod to realism. My latest quest has led me to researching medieval demographics and reading material about medieval manors (Harn Manor & A Magical Medieval Society). I know that a lot of what I am doing will never be known by the players, but I feel that kind of thing provides a firm foundation for the sandbox.... Anyway, here is the quote
The Highs and Lows of Fantasy
by Paul Hancock
Dragon Magazine March 1989
Because this campaign requires depth and internal consistency to make it believeable, the DM must be prepared to put in a considerable amount of work. If you enjoy creating campaign material for its own sake - just for the satisfaction of seeing your world come alive as you players interact with it - and you add details to the campaign that few playe3rs would ever be likely to know or even care about, then you are probably a low-fantasy DM.
