I've long been tinkering and tweaking forever with my worldbuilding, trying to make a magical but believable universe, with magic and industry and political strife and cultural clashes and all the fun that that entails. But as a Russian Studies major and a die-hard Russophile, a lot of the foundation I've built the main kingdom of my series on has been "Russia circa 1905, but with magic and demons." This is an oversimplification but it's where I started the process.
