The One-Page Wilderness


Sean at Bite the Bulette has done a very nice one-page Wilderness, inspired by Will Douglas's Northmarch. I hope we see more of these from the old-school blogosphere!

I did a sort of "one-sheet" Wilderness a while back, when I was putting alot of stuff together for Microlite20; a campaign setting on one (front and back of a) sheet, called Lands of Lyrion. You can gaze upon its pulp-fantasy-inspired cheesiness here.

I think I might do a similar one-sheet for my mystery campaign mini-setting discussed here, just to see what it would look like. Sort of like Lyrion, but on a smaller scale, I'd want a tiny bit of detail on the towns and cities, some "lurid lairs", and perhaps a small pantheon of deities.

  1. That's Sean Will's awesome work, at the Bite the Bulette blog, not mine (I'm also "Bulette" at the S&W forums). Just to avoid any confusion! Hey Sean, sign yer blog posts! ;-)

  4. Something is wrong with your link to Bite the Bulette. The link is going here:

    instead of where it should be here:

  7. Hi, Do you have any other Lands of Lyrion material that you could share with us?

    I found the Scrolls of Kronus thread
    http://necromancergames.yuku.com/topic/10383
    and really liked the write up of the City of Neethra. Have you written anything for any of the other cities?

  8. Hi Stephen,

    No, I don't really have a lot about the setting (posted online, at least). It was more a challenge to myself to see if I could put a setting with its own flavor together in one page in keeping with the design ethic of M20. There are some fan resources here and there around the net, like this:
