Something About the Southern Kingdom

Where would you rather go?


Let’s pretend for a moment you can be dropped anywhere in the Southern Kingdom – Prospero’s realm of reality – for an hour. Where would spend your sixty minutes?

Prospero’s House
  • Pros: it’s the center of Prospero’s world and even he doesn’t know how – or if – everything works. Note the mysterious locked cabinet. There are books for the bibliophiles, a cellar of spirits for the cerevisaphiles, and the potential for hours on end of tall tales, stories and songs for the sapiophiles.
  • Cons: Even the best-loved fun houses lose their appeal after a while. And the magic mirror may make our lives miserable if we stay too long.
Five Dials (the village)
  • Pros: Looks nice on the outside.
  • Cons: Ready to kill on the inside.
Castle of King Gorm
  • Pros: A crazy little king manhandles the cosmos in his madcap tower.
  • Cons: A crazy little king.
Duchy of Irontree-Dragonrock
  • Pros: Here be a rock shaped like a dragon!
  • Cons: There be a tree made of iron!
Briar Hill
  • Pros: Quiet, unassuming small town, mostly surrounded by old castle walls, perfect for new or small families, plenty of farm land.
  • Cons: Never mind the roofless, burned-out shell of a house of our former citizen and the empty forest on the outskirts of town.
