RPG Blog Carnival: Fantastic Locations — Roundup, Take 3

This is embarrassing.  I feel bad about missing Simon’s post, but downright stupid for overlooking two of my own. Keith Davies — In My Campaign Fantastic Location: Rime Tower, Part 2 — Perspiration makes some decisions about what direction to go with this location and nails down some details. Fantastic Location: Rime Tower, Part 3 […]

RPG Blog Carnival: Fantastic Locations — Missed One!

I have been reviewing the carnival submissions and just realized I’d overlooked one. My apologies, skyfullofdust, I didn’t see the pingback. … and the sky full of dust skyfullofdust provides some background on The City where the various groups he has been describing (including the Church of Consumption, the Church of Fleeting Dreams, and the […]

RPG Blog Carnival: Fantastic Locations, Final Roundup

I am really impressed with the turnout for this Carnival.  I make it forty-one forty-four posts (it seems I missed a few, including two of my own!) from twenty-one blogs.  I think the weekly roundups were a good idea, I just have to collect them all and I’m mostly done. This has been a very […]

Fantastic Location: Rime Tower, Part 3 — Implementation

Finally, I am in a position to describe Rime Tower in (hopefully succinct) detail.  I started more than two weeks ago looking for Inspiration, applied some Perspiration, and now move to Implementation. Potential (because I’m not describing them now) other entities are highlighted in bold.  Text in <angle brackets> indicates a placeholder — I am […]

Fantastic Location: Rime Tower, Part 2 — Perspiration

A couple of days ago I came up with the idea of Rime Tower.  I started basically from a blank sheet of paper, some dice, and a small (mmm… about six-inch) stack of RPG books and went looking for ideas. I ended up with a rough idea of what I was going to build– Rime […]

Fantastic Locations: January 26, 2012 Roundup

Heh, cool.  Almost half of the first two pages when I google ‘fantastic locations’ have to do with this carnival.  Throw in ‘rpg blog carnival’ and it was page six before I started finding more than one or two per page that weren’t directly related.  Sweet! Here is this week’s roundup for the RPG Blog […]

Fantastic Locations: January 19, 2011 Roundup

Not so many posts for the RPG Blog Carnival on Fantastic Locations this week, but some quite good ones.  I had aimed to post every day myself, and that plan was pretty solidly kicked in the teeth about this time last week (I’ve given up on the Links of the Week post that would have […]

Fantastic Locations: January 12, 2012 Roundup

Here is this week’s roundup for the RPG Blog Carnival: Fantastic Locations. Erik at Wampus Country tells us of the Vulture-Men of Buzzard Gulch (because really, where else would you expect to find them?).  On the face of it this is a place made special by those who live here, but there is a deeper […]

Fantastic Location: Rime Tower, Part 1 – Inspiration

For the last week or so I have been talking about fantastic locations.  I have described one, I have discussed even more the resources I use when devising them.  I thought it time to describe another one, and I realized that I didn’t feel like going back to revise an older one I’ve posted here, […]

Fantastic Locations: On Holy Ground

Temples are one of the more common places of power in my campaign.  In a world where gods exist, places of interest to them often take on characteristics appropriate or pleasing to the gods. The gods were interrupted while building the prime plane, which has had some consequences. There are still places where the Fundament […]
