Writers of Yahoo: Who of you enjoys world-building?

Well if you clicked, I have presents for you :D I am currently rebuilding one of my worlds because let's face it, I didn't do a good enough job the first time. So, I'm working on this awesome 30 page questionnaire that I would never post here. Some of the questions are really cool though. So, tell me all about your world! 1) Where are major mountain ranges? Rivers and lakes? Deserts? Forests, tropical and otherwise? Grasslands and plains? 2) If there are imaginary animals (dragons, unicorns, etc.), how do they fit into the ecology? What do they eat? How much habitat do they require? Can they live anywhere, or do they prefer or need specific kinds of climate or terrain? Are they intelligent and/or capable of working spells, talking, etc.? 3) Which natural resources, if any, have been depleted in which areas over time? 4) How far back are there records or tales of historical events? How widely known are these stories? 5) Where did civilization begin? What directions did it spread? How was its development affected by the presence of magic (assuming there's magic in your world)? The presence of non-human races, if any? The actions or direct interventions of the gods? 6) How many languages are there? Which ones are related (e.g., the Romance languages) and why? Which languages borrow words or phrases from other languages? Which is likely to be most widely spoken? 7) How do most people make a living here? 8) Does the weather or climate contribute any habits or customs, such as the mid-afternoon siesta in hot countries? 9) What customs surround a birth and the introduction of a new child to the family? Is the mother sequestered for some period? Is the child? Is there a formal presentation of the new child to parents, grandparents, overlord, priest? Is a feast and celebration declared, or does everyone keep a low profile to keep from attracting demons or bad luck? 10) What dishes are considered holiday food? What foods/drinks are associated with particular holidays, events (e.g., funerals, weddings) or times of the year? And of course, the BQs: BQ1: What is your character's status in their society? BQ2: Is this reflected in their appearance? BQ3: I've been gone a long, long time. h*********u doing??
