Hey All,

my game gang is headed NORTH...  in-game.  They're moving into the "Cold Downs".  I thought it'd be fun to figure out WHAT type of terrain imagery would work for that area.

So - if you have suggestions, what do you think the areas between Bastion and Gasterfang??
I'm fine with suggestions calling out locals that I can look up.  But I would LOVE to see imagery that YOU find and post here.

But that area's just for my immediate needs.  I thought it could be FUN for us to create a visual "guide" to Eredane by posting up ANY images of locations on our Earth to match what you envision an area of Aryth to be. 


Anyone want to help?
If so start showing me what you think the Cold Downs looks like!! 


thanks!

I really like the idea of having a community pool of visual suggestions for places (important or not) around Eredane.  I have a small collection of images ready for this sort of thing, so I'll get to digging.  I'm going to suggest people check out the Creative Commons section of Flikr.com for stuff that the owner of the image is okay with this sort of web re-posting.

I'll toss out the first one.

For my games, this is what the sky looks like looking toward the burning line from the western plains.

HEY!!

I'm glad this post is starting to get some legs!!
I'd also ask that folks make notes as to locations/names of places on Earth that others could research for if you think of any...  I'm not very good at locations/geography, so it'd be helpful.

For Example - one of my players (Hi Adam!)  noted that the White Desert area might resemble locals like:  White Sands New Mexico or the Atacma Desert in Peru.


Great stuff so far!

Anyone has suggestions for the:
  • Cold Downs region
  • Gasterfang
  • Bastion
  • Steel Hill
  • or images of fortifications/walls all across the Fortress Wall


just to ask for a few...

I imagine that the Cold Downs would be much like the Siberian taiga.

That's a great picture. I never pictured siberia as being so green. Is that during the summer? Seems like the Cold Downs would spend a lot of time covered in snow (which is always how I picture Siberia, too).

Check this out:

http://www.alaska-in-pictures.com/landscape-photos-cat_page3.htm

I'm guessing you will be able to find a lot of pictures here.  Some of them are too pretty for such a depressing world as Midnight but there are some hidden gems in there that you should be able to find.

Like this one:

Also look for images of the Valley of 10000 Smokes that is located in Alaska.

Like here:  http://www.alaskastock.com/resultsframe.asp?txtkeys1=valley%20of%2010,000%20smokes

Wow... interesting thread... I myself often search for pictures that fit the places described...

Right here I have something for the Veradeen.
The last one could be a distant view of Skyrfell Pyke (looking eastward from the Veradeen).

Tell me what you think...

Leader, those are amazing. I'm going to use #5 and 7 in an upcoming session. Thanks.

Later those veradeen pics are going to come in handy too.

If we could figure out a way to photoshop an old stone bridge into the waterfall picture it would be perfect for Kurgan Falls (from Crown of Shadow)

The evilest looking church ever. Great for a Church of Izrador in some major human city.
