Fantasy Terrain

Tabletop Adventures specializes in descriptions of many different types of fantasy terrain, to help GMs liven up travel and adventuring in their games. Some descriptions are short and can be dropped in anywhere, while others are more specific, to be used by GMs with malice aforethought. All are intended to help out the Harried Game Master.
