While looking for inspiration, I've been doing some digging into old threads lately. There were many places on our map of which I didn't know anything. I think many newer guild members feel the same way, as there are quite a few settlements that haven't seen builds in years. So therefore I thought I would share some features that I found and I am willing to add more info as we go:
Important stop for people who have crossed or are about to cross the Kelra Labyrinth.
Half timbered houses (reminiscent of Avalonia), canals for transporting goods. Theft and other shady businesses are common.
Population: mostly human.
Roofs: bright red or dark red.
Builds found: 1, 2
Builders: @Cij Daoke
Very large royal city in the depths of the underground. A major crossroad in the network of underground passages and lava chambers that spans Avalonia, Nocturnus and Kaliphlin. According to the lore, it is connected to a twin city in another dimension.
Bright red and black gothic superstructures with lots of towers and bridges, with bows, spikes, stained windows and supposedly magical devices. State of the art knowledge of magic. Obsession with hunting and enslavement of 'strong' species and monsters, to add to the 'arsenal' of curiosities. Arguably the most diverse population in all of Historica.
Population: Dark elves (Drow, the rulers), surface dwellers (i.e. lizardfolk, snakemen, half dragons, feline humanoids, orcs, wherewolves) and abyssal dwellers (i.e. humanoid bats, demons, elementals).
Roofs: bright red or black
Builds found: 1 (a truly MASSIVE one!)
System of labyrinths, plugs the gap in the Rakath mountain range and forms the greatest (constructed) barrier for anyone trying to get to the heart of Nocturnus. Disorienting maze of overgrown stone walls of varying height.
Population: Minotaurs, lizardfolk and lost travellers.
Amount of builds found: 1, 2, 3
Builders: @I Scream Clone, @Windusky
Crater/geological depression in the Siccus Badlands. Mysterious place, reportedly surrounded by remnants of an ancient civilization. Purple water lakes.
Amount of builds found: 1 (small vignette)
Builders: @-Carson Haupt-
This is all I have for today. I haven't dug into other areas or settlements, though a number of places I could write about off the top of my head. I'm not the type of person to make notes while I write, so apologies if I made mistakes here and there. I may try to add references to topic threads later.
