How to Create Seasons with Axial Tilt

If you're writing a narrative about living on an alien planet or a fantasy world different from our real one, you should consider how that planet's seasons are different from the Earth. To do this, you need to keep in mind of the planet's axial tilt and how its angle can effect its seasons in drastic ways.


  • For habitable worlds, choose an axial tilt between 0º - 80º for counter-clockwise spin or 110º - 180º for clockwise spin.
