The Hollows of Teragaius    Locations  (World)   (Underground)

A dangerous, alien plane where glowing frog-slimes slither and slurp, metal-skinned bird people rebuff diplomacy, and only the endless subterranean tunnels are safe (just mind the gravity-bending moles).  Visitors will have to skulk around in the dark to avoid the curse carried by the sunlight.  Because (have I mentioned?) the sun is the source of a powerful curse--one that covers the whole planet.

The Pocket Realm of Brocschtal    Locations  (Area)   (Mountains)

The People of the pocket realm of Brocschtal are simple folk who live as they have for thousands of years. Farming the land, raising sheep, getting in the occasional brawl. And fighting off the infernal attacks of ghouls.

The Nexus    Locations  (City)   (Other)

"Living in a town that sits on a dimensional nexus can wear thin after a while. It's not so much the crawling shadows, bizarre weather, or late night visitors from places that never existed; but carrying on with your normal life and trying to act like nothing out of the ordinary is going on in your little corner of the world that gets to you."

A small rural town with surreal secrets, that happens to be situated on a dimensional crossroads, suitable for modern day supernatural/mystical/horror campaigns.

Mondaloa    Locations  (City)   (Plains)

Mondaloa is a name shared by both a city and a deity.  Mondaloa, the city, is built on layers of crypts and tombs that are far more opulent and majestic than the city that covers them.  Mondaloa, the deity, is the god of rest, peace, and death.  There is nothing Mondaloa desires more than to see the dead buried deep in their tombs where they can rest in honor and peace.  But there is trouble: something is torturing the dead of the city, and driving them to madness and rage.  Now, 500 years of honored ancestors are trickling into the city above, seeking blood and pain and death.

Deepbend Maximum Security Prison    Locations  (Fortification)   (Water)

The Sea of Snot    Locations  (Area)   (Water)

Deep within the heart of the Great Woses, lies an inland sea that few care to visit.  Nevermind the ogre-infested swamps that surround it, the place is just disgusting.  While known by many names – the Belching Sea, the Eternal Loogie, Gluumraag's Blessing and sometimes, the Slimy Deep – most simply call it the Sea of Snot.

Gibraltar Submarine Naval Yards    Locations  (Fortification)   (Water)

The Rock of Gibraltar, once a stalwart of British power, the gate to the Mediterranean, now is a fortress for the Eurasian Alliance. It's fair teeming with neo-Soviets and submarines.

If the guard borgs can't find an excuse ta peel the skin off yer bones and the inmates don't use ya for their bettin pool, the pressures o' bein that far beneath the waves will drive ya to the brink, mark my words!"

Sidjir Towers    Locations  (Fortification)   (Any)

Sid and Jir were childhood friends growing up in the same town on the ocean. Both creative geniuses, both with the need to be better than the other. Many will tell you that this friendship created their genius while others realized, in hindsight, that it spelled the lands doom.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The road has never been more than an overgrown mud track, little travelled and little cared for, petered out to nothing more than a flattened earthen line, barely distinguishable from the rest of the landscape. The soil is dark and fecund and dark oaks stand like sentinels at the forest edge, their branches high and leafy. From them hang grizzly human bones, skulls and shiny precious stones. Who put these strange totems there? Are they warnings? Do the PCs dare to take the stones?
