The Dead God's Palm
Although this game world is being built collaboratively, I've decided to shoehorn in a huge swathe of wasteland called The Dead God's Hand. This waste, east of the Barrier Peaks, is bone-dry ocean marred by a thousand caravan routes, strange ruins, and fearsome tribes that are nations unto themselves. Additionally, I am using the wonderful Spider God's Bride for inspiration. As much as I love the setting that is outlined in the book, I have decided to graft it onto world that I and my players are building. It would be cool if the characters stumbled upon a relic such as the one that appears in this photo. I notice that there's graffiti written upon. What if the entire thing was defaced with profane sigils known only to a secretive desert cult that worships a slumbering god? The ideas are endless.
