A Collection of Unmitigated Pedantry (ACOUP) is a blog produced by a professor of history who likes fantasy and science fiction books, movies and games. His blog reviews fantasy fiction from a historical perspective and from a straightforward functioning perspective. He often offers the perspective that fantasy relies on the suspension of disbelief, and the best way to maintain that suspension is present a world that has all the appearances of being able to function as presented.

Here is his page - Resources for World Builders. - Link.
Topics include such things as:

Armies and Logistics:​

Religion: practical polytheism anyone?

Society and Politics:
Armor and Weapons:

Ship Design:

And much more.
