A bunch of places and stuff

(UPDATE 2019-05-13: there's a recording of this blog post over at Blogs on Tape.)

The Bottomless Forest (area)
Woodlands. Tropical.
A forest where the inhabitants lives in the tree tops, since the roots are carnivorous.

Witch Wart (settlement)
Plateau. Temperate.
A small agricultural society built around a huge, yellow monolith. The big piece of rock is said to belong to a witch that sleeps in the ground. A rumbling snoring can sometimes be heard at night.

Mooncardigan Fen (area)
Marsh. Temperate.
A large marshland, named after the Mooncardigan that's said to originate from here (a dark blue piece of clothing that sedates the wielder). The people living here lives in stilt houses.

Lycanstorp (village)
Plateau. Temperate.
One large, perfectly round house, that actually contains several smaller houses. People suffering from lycanthrope comes here for a safe haven.

Archfoot (area)
Flat. Cold.
This area is covered in inverted mountains in different sizes. Tiny giants are living at the bottom.

Trollbanetorp (castle)
Woodlands. Cold.
A group of exiled goblins have taken this place as their home. They're trying to live like humans, more or less successfully. They hate trolls and cookies with raisins.

Onrecht (city)
Desert. Hot.
One of the three trade cities.
A filthy and dangerous city. Built in layers in some sort of limestone. Rainbow coloured togas are very popular. Veils that protect against the glare of a gorgon (see Mierenhoop) can be bought here, although they wither to dust at midnight.

Mierenhoop (city)
Desert. Hot.
One of the three trade cities.
Not a city for humans, since everyone living here stems directly from a line of gorgons. They're not evil or bad people, it's just that it's rather difficult to trade with someone without looking them in the eyes.

Weegschalen (city)
Desert. Hot.
One of the three trade cities.
This whole city is a big bank. Mountain Kings patrol the "streets", tearing apart any thieves they catch.

The Frostwave (area)
Desert. Arctic.
An enormous (several hundred meters) frozen wave. Rumor has it that there's a rich city at the very top, unaware of the world below it. Peeking inside the ice reveals shadowy figures.


  1. This post was recently featured in an episode of Blogs on Tape. I did so under the mistaken understanding that this was Alex Chalk's blog, and that I had permission to read from it.

    So, first, may I have your permission to do readings from your blog? If not I'll remove the post immediately.

    Second, if you're okay with me reading from your blog, what name would you like me to attribute your work to? I'll edit both the audio and video to reflect the proper name.

    Either way, I am very sorry for the mixup. I'm not sure what happened in my records.

    1. 1. Absolutely! I do believe I've already given you permission on Google+, but as we all know that was a loooooooong time ago...

      2. Jensan

      As I commented on your blog, you have very pleasant voice, so please do more recordings.

    2. Excellent my dude, thank you! I've edited all references to the author, so they should now be properly attributed. Sorry for the mixup!

      I'll definitely continue to put out audio recordings, and hopefully will have a chance to read from your blog again soon. :)
