You’ve designed your characters. You’ve outfitted them for a desert wasteland. Now it’s time to bring their world to life by creating a detailed, believable backdrop for daily life.
Before you do anything else, start by creating a floor plan overview. This particular setting is a tiny, one-bedroom house, so think about what would be there. Make sure you cover the necessities: a bed, a stove for heating and cooking, a small table and a shelf for storage. (The outhouses are outside.)
