Inspirational Pictures

Some inspirational photos found while traipsing around google search results and wikicommons. Doing this never fails to get my creative juices flowing. If only I could find the time for the many, many campaign ideas...

Ships orphaned by the disappearance of the Aral Sea in Moynaq, Uzbekistan. (Full of treasure? Ghosts? Both?)

Stone structures from the "Japanese Atlantis" off the coast of Yonaguni Island in the Southern part of Okinawa. (Ancient submerged city? Home of tritons, sahuagin or a dead kuo-toan god?)

The Old Man of Storr, a rock formation on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. (Lair of witches? Sacrificial altar for a sinister cult? Entrance to a dwarven citadel?)

More some other time, maybe.


  1. The Old Man is now my desktop background - very cool. Sometimes a picture really does get the brain revving - it's why good "flavor art" is so important in RPGs, in my opinion at least.

  2. Badelaire: Absolutely. The art really sets the tone for the entire game, and it's impossible to ignore.
