"The Warlick fails his intelligence check!"

So. First time at Gary Con and didn't realize that even though the events are free, you still have to 'Check Out' your Cart to get them, so I lost all my initial spaces. Got into Thursday's In Umbrage Taken, and that's it for Hyperborea.

Being a decades long WFRP game runner, I'm used to it's usual Medieval Renaisance architecture, but Hyperborea's architectural origins are older and significantly more diverse. I enjoy giving my player's visuals, so either I'll whip up an illustration or two for Roll20 games, or terrain for those in meatspace, and as Hyperborea has a unique feel and quite different from my usual, other than I'm more than indulgent in throwing Lovercraftian elements around all willy-nilly.

Primarily, my question(s) are if these ideas coinside with what you envision, and if they differ, then what are your ideas/suggestions? Unfortunately, I only have the boxed set and not the new massive 2nd edition tome (at this time), so if some of these questions are answered there already, I apologize.

Here are some thoughts/ideas, some from historical sources that don't really mean much in Hyperborea, but they can be a starting point for brain storming, and, to be frank, I haven't read REH Conan and Kull in a good decade, so I could probably use some literary reminders:

Khromarium/Hyperborean architecture: I'm thinking a more 'fantastical' architecture. A lot of long thin lines, circular structures, arches etc. However, I don't think sci-fi types of construction would be ruled out here, either. But since Khromarium is also a city long uninhabited with a much smaller population than it originally held, I imagine lots of delapitated easily-haunted ruins that I imagine has both a Gothic AND Lovecraftian vibe. Also, pre-Hellenic/Hellenic architecture, such as the ruins of Troy for the more 'modern' built structures.

Picts: Ancient architecture of Scotland, such as Scara Brae, crannogs, and Pict Stones.

Kelts: Megaliths and ring forts.Kimmerian: Cappadocian rock houses and stone-hewn dwellings cut into cliff faces.

Kor: Ape City from the original Planet of the Apes!!!

Vikings - the usual longhouses and such with their longships and close relationship to the seas and that which dwells beneath th

Hello, fellow seekers of adventure and plunderers of dark secrets, my name is Mick.

I fell in love with gaming when my father bought me the Holmes box set. I can still remember how B1 and it's map set my junior high school imagination on fire. It wasn't until high school where I found my gaming group (most of who I still game with to this day) and we started playing AD&D until the hour long combats of 3.5 and PF got to us. We're in the midst of a Moldvay basic Caves of Chaos campaign now.

High school is also when I discovered Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and the 1st COC boxset, which both enamoured me even more. If I'm running a campaign, it's always been 1st ed WFRP. For those of you that might be interested in some 'different' ideas about that and some minor entertaining gaming things, I have a game blog like everybody else (but mine is guaranteed to be the most dumb and least updated) at anglypur.blogspot.com

Picked up the boxset of AS&SH a while back when I backed the bad-ass Port Greeley KS, but I hadn't played it until GameHole Con last weekend with Chainsaw. After having such a good time, I'm thinking now I may be hooked...
