World Building and some tools i've found useful

If you have never heard of world building it is basically creating the world(s) that will be the setting for you sci-fi / fantasy story

I have just started creating a world which will be the setting for a roleplaying game i will be dm'ing and possibly for use in any short stories i may try to write (http://cychosys.com/  for anyone interested in the system i'll be using)

Since this is my first time constructing my own universe I spent a while gathering info and tips on how others build their worlds

Some links that i have found useful so far are
