Each Thursday, inspired by ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ we have in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.
This week’s topic is EXTREME CLIMATES
Perhaps the hansom prince lives in a castle surrounded by green countryside and sunny days. The rest of the land is forced to deal with freezing cold, searing heat, and every other extreme climate mother nature can throw at you.
So. Um. Didn’t make a list this week. Don’t act surprised.
Here you go, a sixty second list.
Hoth from Star Wars.
Whatever the land in The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke is (vast desert kept alive by water wizards; seriously you need to read this book).
Oh guys, guys! There is a squirrel out my window! It is so damn cute!
Darn. Time is up.
Join us next week as we look at MIDDLE AGE HEROES
This hero stuff is usually a young person’s game. And, occasionally, a grizzled old veteran can get involved. It is a true rarity for someone to join the good fight for Fantasyland living in that in between ground.
