The Devil’s Riddle: Interlude: Building Tremane

Now my party have reached a decent sized town it’s time to flesh it out a bit with the aid of some amazing online tools. First up is a randomly created town map courtesy of Watabou’s astonishing Fantasy City Generator. The fantasy world map generator is perhaps even more awesome, but be prepared to lose hours of your life to it!


Next I decide my party are going to seek out an inn as they hunt for Ranji, so I randomly generate that on the Donjon site and add some annotation to my map with Photoshop. If I explore other areas of the town I’ll update the annotation as I go. Looks like there are some fascinating folk slumming it in the King’s Tankard! Who knows what, if any of this lovely background detail will find its way into my narrative. 

Inn: The King’s Tankard
Location: On Muck Close, near the town wall. Its neighbors include a sprawling oxen pen and the crumbling ruins of a building.
Description: The inn is a simple wooden shack, with unusually low ceilings. Accomodations consist of several wooden cots in the cellar and several hammocks in the common room.
