Starting Points

In most fantasy settings there are worlds and realms beyond that of mortals. It may be where the gods live, the dead go and monsters of nightmares arrive from.

Demonic creatures locked in the Abyss, a realm of dreaming, an Underworld like Hades where the dead reside. The Elemental Planes of D&D, the Realms of Chaos from Warhammer and the Astral Sea of Spelljammer are all more examples.

This forest and feywild guide has tools for Feywild and Fairy Tale

Planes Tools

You pass forward through the untried portal hidden high atop a mountain among a layer of clouds. You're immediately met by a vigorous world. Light as a feather you gently float above the surface, hanging gently in the thick smog that fills the air. A new world has literally opened up to you, vast expanses of new life ready to be explored. You can't wait.
A spectacular world welcomes you and you can't wait to explore it all. This world is an easy undertaking, but at the very least you should be able to survive for a week...

From Realm Descriptions at Fantasy Name Generators.

While donjon has a Worlds and Planes Generator including items such as "Resu: An abyssal plane of jagged peaks, poisoned lakes, and rusting battlefields. The plane is primarily populated by demons and trolls."
