The Red Fortress


100 Word Castle

Built in another age, lost to time, the Red Fortress is massive and ancient. Made from millions of hand made red bricks, it is the size of a small town. A river runs through it's foundations, and there is a city within, piled on top of itself, and a city without hiding in it's shadow. Seat of the King, and Shrine to the Sun God, it broods, a man-made mountain. It is the heart of a nation of cattle herders, merchants, and semi-nomads, and the bane of the plains dwelling orcs. The fortress is named in more than one prophecy.

" there is a city within, piled on top of itself, and a city without hiding in it's shadow"


I hope you enjoyed writing that line as much as I enjoyed reading it.

I can only agree with the others - the imagery here is quite good. The whole thing does a great job of feeling weird. Who made all those bricks? What kind of people would have built a city like this? Why? Lots of interesting stuff here.

Merely nitpicking, but you used it's when you should have used its. I also counted 101 (not counting the faulty ones), but meh. :p

Tripping over the Golden Bough

       By: Wulfhere

Nearly every primitive culture has had rituals and celebrations to guarantee the proper passage of the seasons and to ensure the fertility of crops and animals. Oversight of these ceremonies was generally the provenance of local kings or priests.

Suppose that the adventurers dispatch one of these fellows. The local peasants may become hysterical, fearing famine and death will stalk the land. Alternatively, they may want one of the new heroes to become king. For a while, this can be a good thing, but the first time that the crops fail, the superstitious locals will want to sacrifice their new leader.
