    1. Thank you so much for your interest. These are all inventions of my deranged mind (or from PC back stories). As I add adventure sites, or am inspired to develop a piece of history for adventure backgrounds etc then I add a short note here as well.

    2. Some of the original entries came from the campaign background in the old Fantasy Trip RPG (which was the starting point of our game)
