There’s a fine line between making a generic kitchen sink fantasy world that lovingly pay homage to the tropes of the fantasy genre and just ripping off J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Thankfully, no one will actually be sued by the rights holders of Lord of the Rings, no matter how unoriginal and derivative their homebrew campaign setting is. Yet. I’ve heard of some pretty bland worlds over the years, and who knows what Amazon will do once they firmly have the rights.
