Step 1: Remove this robe

Step 2: Add an unrandart based on Quicksilver Dragon Scales

building a map of a fictional village

Mapping a Village

Often, in the process of writing for fantasy, we need to create little towns and villages. I feel like these are rarely practical or realistic creations. But why not? There are so many resources to draw from. Let's look at some little villages, particularly old ones, and see what they look like.

Burg Frankenstein

This is a village so iconic it inspired one of the first horror / sci-fi novels. There is a creepy-ass castle over-looking a tiny village that winds along a little river in a deep valley cut through the mountains:

Fremont Diner Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe

Buttermilk Biscuits

Makes 12 2 ½” biscuits

This is a recipe for fluffy biscuits, not flakey. They are best straight out of the oven with butter or jam. Always make extra, they are great split, buttered, and griddled for breakfast sandwiches. We use a food processor to mix the butter and flour. You can use your hands or a fork but using the food processor helps to keep the butter cold which will help make tender biscuits (and it is much faster & more uniform).


  • food processor
  • 2 ½” round biscuit cutter
You can’t perform that action at this time.
