Alyeskan Gazetteer: Roth Island
« on: March 30, 2016, 01:30:01 PM »
The Gazetteer returns and ventures out into the wilds of the northern tundra, a mysterious and wildly inhospitable place where death and the biting cold are the only certainties.

The focus this week is on the cursed Roth Island and its abandoned outpost, though maybe not quite as abandoned as first thought...

Yay, I like geography ones :) Definitely a good plot hook for a campaign there!

This one was partially inspired by HP Lovecraft's 'At The Mountains of Madness' and the episode of Destination Truth where they visited old British bases in Antarctica.

I should read more Lovecraft, seen a few short stories but that's about it.

BBC Radio 4 did some radio plays of some of his stories including At The Mountains of Madness.
