Terrain Features Generator
This is a list of minor terrain features, the minor locations that can be dropped in anywhere just to add "narrative flavor", to make it more than just another road, field, forrest, beach. These are not settings or even whole areas, these are things you can "drop" into the world to add color and versimilitude. The original list is still open for your additions!

In the Middle Ages, and even up to the early twentieth century, most of Europe's executioners were related: the Sansons and Deiblers in France, the Pierrepoints in England, etc. The reason for this was that, it generally not being socially acceptable to, well, kill people, executioners and their children could, generally, only marry other executioners or their children.
The parallels with massively inbred, Hapsburg-style dynasties are obvious- imagine a rather clever but politically inept satirist noting this, and being sentenced by the latter to a meeting with the former; even worse, imagine a dynasty of deranged and deformed executioners- think Texas Chaisaw Massacre with government funding.
