One Gen to Build them All

If you want a lot of your world building done in one place then Eigengrau's Generator might work for you. It can do towns, taverns, quests and NPCs all while keeping them related to each other.

Places

Memorable places are a great start for world building and DND Speak has many 100 place lists that are D&D related.. 100 unique towns and villages is a great place to start.

Magic shops have been covered in the 5e Guide to Treasure and Items, mentioning the 5e Magic Shop and Donjon Random Magic Shop.

D&D Quests

You'll want ways for characters to explore your world so try Quests lists at DnD Speak or or my D&D One Shot ideas generator for an alternative take.

Beyond the World

For places beyond the mortal realm check out 100 new planes of existence or my Planar Encounter Tables on DM's Guild
