100 Landmarks for a Fantasy Setting

Watermarked PDF

When travelling through the countryside, whether wilderness or civilised realms, characters can either have an uneventful journey, or they could have some encounters. This is a collection of 100 different landmarks that could be encountered in a fantasy setting. Each landmark has a name by which it will be known locally and some details of what it is.

These landmarks are features that are often large and have been around for many years, typically centuries at least or even longer than civilisation. They may be odd, possess unusual features or simply spark curiosity. They may be used by a GameMaster to simply enliven a journey, or as a potential source of adventure hooks.

Here are some sample results:

  • Fool’s Tower: A golden tower 100’ high. From a distance it appears as if the tower has been constructed from golden stones. On closer examination, it can be discovered that the stones are actually fool’s gold. There are many gouges and chips where creatures have removed pieces of the tower, thinking that they were genuine gold.
  • The Footprints of the Gods: Pressed into the rock are several enormous footprints. The feet that made the marks were bare and from something larger than any known giant or titan. The prints have been there a very long time, perhaps since before the rock became rock, and water pools inside them.
  • The Forest of Bells: This pine forest can be heard from a distance, as a pleasant chiming fills the air. The cones that grow on the trees, and they are living cones, chime gently in the wind, a peculiar effect that ceases if they are harvested, and many have tried and failed to harvest the chiming cones.
  • The Forever Maze: A hedge maze, growing far from any civilisation. The maze is complicated, and easy to get lost in, plus the hedges prove impossible to push through and attempting to fly over the maze results in flyers falling from the sky. The hedges are always perfectly manicured and the paths are well kept and free of debris, yet none have ever been seen working on maintaining the maze.
  • Forgotten Shrine of the Horned King: A stone shrine almost completely overgrown with creepers standing deep within the wildest part of the wood. The shrine is to the Horned King and, on certain nights of the year, the Wild Hunt can be heard in the area. Some who hear the Hunt are never seen again.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
