For storytellers, authors, and role-playing game (RPG) masters, the setting can often be as pivotal as the characters and the plot.

Recognizing the importance of vivid and exciting locations in storytelling, Guy Sclanders, host of the YouTube channel How to be a Great GM, and Till Lammer, CEO of DungeonFog, have teamed up to create a comprehensive guide to crafting the most dynamic settings for storytellers and gamemasters: The Creator's Guide to Epic Locations – Nature.

From Barren Wastes to Volcanos: Covering a Range of Landscapes

The book provides an in-depth look at 16 distinct natural environments, ranging from barren wastes and bayous to underwater realms and volcanic landscapes. Readers will discover the unique features and intricacies that define each locale, helping them incorporate these settings into their own stories or RPG campaigns.


A Fantastical Spin on Natural Environments

Adding to its utility and depth, each location is analysed through the lens of five incredible settings: High Fantasy, the Underfell, the Fey Domain, The Hells, and the Shadow Realm. This layered approach provides storytellers with added nuance and flexibility, allowing them to adapt conventional settings into something truly extraordinary.

More than Just a Handbook

Epic Locations is not merely a catalog of places. Each location in the guide is accompanied by a quick reference sheet, which offers sensory descriptions, sample encounters, potential adventures, and a list of adjectives that capture the essence of the area.

This resource aims to be an all-inclusive toolkit for those looking to build a world that breathes life. The second part of the book explains what methods can be applied to craft your own engaging locations and introduce principles of storytelling, pacing and planning.
