    That mountain would make a truly awesome fortress.
    -Kaodi

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
    Is the immediate jewel of their souls.
    Who steals my purse steals trash; 'tis something, nothing;
    'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands;
    But he that filches from me my good name
    Robs me of that which not enriches him
    And makes me poor indeed.

    -Iago, Shakespeare's Othello, Act III. Scene III. Lines 180-186.

    When I was a teen, I hiked up to the monastery on Montserrat outside of Barcelona, Spain. When we got to the top, the two friends I was with took off their clothing and stood naked on the desolate part of the mountain. I have no idea why they did that. I wonder if adventurers would do the same?

    Always thought this place was cool....

    Mount Roraima - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It was Conan Doyle's inspiration for The Lost World

    and nearby is this place: Roraima - Wikimedia Commons
    Check out El Foso....looks like a great entrance into The Underdark

    The Chalice Well, tied to various tales of the Holy Grail.



    Located near Glastonbury Tor.



    The symbol is the Vesica Piscis, which captured my attention because I saw the well cover while taking a class on semiotics, where the signifier and the signified do not always perfectly overlap. I worked some concepts of that into my modern fantasy campaign (before it went off the rails with vampire King Arthur and using the holy grail to heal Michael Jackson).
    Ryan "RangerWickett" Nock
    Director of the ZEITGEIST campaign saga.


    The most cinematic adventure path for 4th Edition and Pathfinder.

    Now available - Admiral o' the High Seas, and ZEITGEIST adventure seven, Schism! For Pathfinder and D&D 4e.
