Great read! Love the names involved and the detail of the story. Despite (or maybe because of) the Masonic similarity, it's awesome! Any chance of a Pillar of Zech member (or two) as a seperate npc submission?
Maybe even one that's gone "rogue", and no longer believes in the seven virtues. Go to Comment
I know for a fact that the dragon eats salteen crackers. i spent 3 weeks living in a tent on mona and met many wonderful dragons and their families as well as a cute baby goat and a few unfriendly wld boar. womans beach is by far one of the most beautiful slices of sand i have ever seen......and to my dissappointment, i never saw the ghosts. i hope it will always remain the quiet, unspoiled place that it is and i hope to return someday.

I'm newbie here in this forum.I'm very impress with this story or legend about Mona Island. The point is I from Puerto Rico and we have an Island called 'Mona Island' located between Dominican Repubic and Puerto Rico, today's a National wildlife Refugee. All that story that IAIN'd told here it is pretty much true. I got many years going to Mona island for camping, hiking, video shooting and treasure hunting. I'd made a large historic research about this island.
About "Melbege dena Farilya ("Beach of the Women")or "Playa Mujeres" many people tell story about ghost screaming in that beach after midnight. Also there is many legends about treasure buried.
I don't know very well the purpose of this web site but it is interesting this subject about this island. Go to Comment
This is a resource site for roleplaying games, gathering ideas for said games, but also stories in general. And we definitively like solid locations with a legend attached - it doesn't hurt if they are inspired by the real world.
A more detailed explanation of what we do here is on the front page, and other places. Look around if you can find anything useful and/or inspiring for you, and feel free to register. And if you have some ideas yourself, we are all ears. Go to Comment
In my setting, dragons don't need to eat for centuries (though happily will if they get the chance), providing they don't move much (essentially they can almost shut off their metabolism). They can also feed off magical energies. However, I like the thought of it needing to eat and trying to desperately find enough food from what meagre fish it can catch from the pool - surely not nearly enough to satisfy its huge frame. I agree with Cheka Man - I definitely do feel sorry for the dragon now. Pity also the poor adventurers - they'll be the first decent meal it's had in a long time. Go to Comment
The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.
It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.
A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.
But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
