Setting, setting, setting… but how to choose one

What exactly is a TTRPG setting? you may not even realise it but you have been using a setting already as a Game Master / Dungeon Master through the role-playing system you are playing with. This can be in the from of a Star Wars universe, Lord of the Rings universe, Fantasy, Steampunk or even Wild-West settings.  

Before you select a setting, you have to consider the kind of game that you want to run and the kind of game that your players want to have.
