The geography and philosophy of the Scaldcrow World is detailed below; even though there are not ink-printed game books for each location, they are no less a part of the creative paradygmn of the Scaldcrow world.. We rarely use real-world cities as the backdrop of our games and comics, but rather fictional ones. We do this because T. Glenn approaches towns and cities the same way he approaches characters; he treats them as unique personas with personalities, strengths, and foibles, all their own. In many cases the fictitious cities have completely replaced the real-world equivalent.
The listed information is by no means all of the places that are unique to each city, simply a sampling that may aid you to get a feel for the location. Eventual game guide books will have complete information.
