Beacon's Hill

By:

Beacon’s Hill is a two and a half century old downtown residential neighborhood situated directly north of the Common and the Public Garden.

Beacon’s Hill is a two and a half century old downtown residential neighborhood situated directly north of the Common and the Public Garden. In size, it is approximately one mile square, bounded by The Old Beacon Street, The New Beacon Street, Cambridge Street and WesternKing Drive. It is filled with red brick buildings that harken back to an earlier time. In fact most of the buildings reach back to two and a half centuries. (The law requires that new buildings in the area “fit in”. These red brick buildings are not the only ones in the city, but they are the most “proper”. They are known for its beautiful doors and door surrounds, brass door knockers, decorative iron work, brick sidewalks, perpetually-burning oil lights, flowering pear trees, window boxes, and hidden gardens.

Beacon Hill contains a South Slope, a North Slope and a Flat of the Hill. Wayler’s Street is the neighborhood’s main street and is filled with shops and craftemen. The City House, the center of city and regional power, is at the top of the Hill overlooking The Commons. All one needs are within walking distance. Wayland Street neatly divides the North slop of the Hill. It has all the basic shops and those catering to those of stature.

Cambridge Street, just off the Hill, is also the home of the venerable White Hall, The center of Healing Studies for the region.

A block over is the square three story building that is The First’s Library, a public library. The building does have a central courtyard flanked on all sides and two archways, echoing the fine colleges of the East.

The City House is the top of the hill. A rambling mansion of a noble (Du’Carte) who fell out of favor after the revolution that installed our current noble bloodline, is where the local lords and assembles work on law, taxes, and administration of the region.

Southside and down is the Commons. The Commons has seen it all, Messiahs, drilling rebel troops, drilling loyalist troops, Master Bards, a Dragon (Guthlag), hundreds of children swimming in its Frog Pond, and hundreds of City Folk skating away the winter.

On the Old Beacon Rd is The Garden: It is one of the oldest botanical gardens in the Land. The 24-acre Public Garden offers Swan Boat rides upon its placid pool. It is known to be one of the most romantic spots in the city.

The Beacon is south of the hill, down a small peninsula. The Beacon keeps the shipping lanes safe in and out of the harbor.

I feel like I am missing something reading this. There is a lot of psuedo history here, either that or there is a deep setting in place here that I know nothing about.

BBQ World?

       By: Redgre

"The world has an immovable dark red sun in the centre of the sky that produces very little light. The heat is totally unbearable and the aroma of delicious cooking meat is in the air. To look around it appears as though you are surrounded by giant black mountains with no vegetation anywhere. The ground is soft and an oily liquid flows into your footprints. Travelling reveals nothing else."

Any character without some resistance to fire or heat is slowly being cooked. The ground if you haven't guessed it is the cooked meat.

I've wanted this world to be part of a dimensional hopping "chase". I thought maybe to populate this world with giant carnivorous beetles or perhaps this could be a "Nirvana" for deceased or living (but dimension travelling) fire dragons.

Perhaps I've just been grilling a little too much meat or perhaps there are some great ideas out there on how to spruce up the place. Any suggestions?
