    Well I think the first things to do would be to define the cultures of your elves and your 'barbarians'. Noting of course that to the Romans (and many others), modern civilisation would be considered barbarous.

    When you are world building thew world must be believable. For your main character what makes him or his race barbarian, what environment/geography do they live in the difference between that and the civilized world. Draw maps and regions and populate those regions with people and creatures with traits that suit the region.
