Beyond Hyperborea

Not sure where to put this but...one of my campaigns has left the great hexagonal plate that is Hyperborea.

Of course, I need to sketch out a general...transportation grid of the thing that they used :-)

I expanded upon the "Taken from Dunwich" setting and placed it in the exact center of the Lemurian Remnant. The party was certain there was something there...so I decided that was it.

I also added some other...mostly hidden places that expands upon 'Dunwich and makes it an old Yith complex for the most part. Or maybe the Yith found it and expanded it.

Regardless, the party is now in a new place that is a mine, and just acquired some blue, glowing diamonds a la the Ghost Ship green ones.

I'm a tiny bit surprised they made this leap but pc's gonna pc.

Should be fun to even just sketch out wtf the Yith are like as a race and wtf they are doing in the places the transportation network goes.


What? Me worry?

i like the boldness of this project.

Re: Beyond Hyperborea

This sounds awesome Gizmo ... I've had a plan for this type of eventuality for my players for a long time, but they've never taken the bait ... I plan to plunk them into Carcosa via the Geoffrey McKinney material for LotFP and his general OSR Carcosa hexcrawl modules. The Carcosa material isn't for everybody (it can be pretty disturbing and takes Otherworldy Horror to it's extreme ... pretty sure I read Ghul isn't a fan), but it definitely has the feel of a place out of time and space.
