Lemurian Remnant is a huge place

And now I need to fill it up a bit.

The players are on the island north of the bigger island with Mount Butai on it. The island with the settlement/village.

They decided to drop anchor on the south side of the island and trek across.

They ran into some Mountain Apes which had a rather decent hoard of gems and gold.

Now to go speed read some Lemurian lore, morph it to Hyperborea's take on it, and rename the fishing village.

I just need to remember that the place is hot and humid and penalize the metal armor wearing pc's

What? Me worry?

Re: Lemurian Remnant is a huge place

Somehow I forgot about this thread (or missed in my search).

So I'm posting what I posted in the other Lemuria thread here, since this is kinda my crap

Well, here's my work on places in the Lemurian Remnant.

Kinda empty at first because..well, my group is still exploring and I'm only adding detail I think I might need and...what I have to make because they go outside expectations :-)

What? Me worry?

Re: Lemurian Remnant is a huge place

Talking through some stuff with Francisca and I found a "plot hole" in the reason one of my groups is there.

There are there because some got Quested in return for a Heal spell (clay automatons are bad news), and the cleric of Ymir (the church they visited) agreed to do basically the same but without the spell. Something about free will...but they didn't need Heal'ing.

In any case, the quest is to go bring the head of a falso god and if possible its crown.

That is my hook for Forgotten Fane.

As it turns out the church didn't tell them about the rest of the place :-)

I don't think it's a hole so much as the temple focusing on the coiled goddess from what little info they got back from the people that journeyed there and back.

They might also have problems with the other gods (well, those not in the "main" hyperborea pantheon) but that's a different problem.

What? Me worry?
