June 22nd Topic Description:
These can be time periods (historical or futuristic) or places (real or fictious)!
Number 5Magical Schools

Magic schools are always full of mystery and adventure. They are the perfect setting for curious characters who will learn as much about themselves as they do about their magical world.
Number 4Whimsical Woods

Give me a beautifully descriptive RPG forest and I'm a happy camper. You never know what creatures, artifacts, or magic power my lay hidden among the glowing scenery.
Number 3Archaeological Excavations or Investigations

Give me adventurers and science-y types out in the world with a purpose. Any setting where characters venture into the unknown is a plus. Even better if they are at odds with a rigorous academic world. This is a favorite setting for both fiction and nonfiction.
Number 2Cool Modes of Transportation
Airship City by Min-Nguen
Airships, Spaceships, Ship-ships, Robotic House Mechs, Floating Castles...I have always been a sucker for a good crew on a good ship.
Number 1Past Golden Age or Lost City
Pictured: Disney's Atlantis
Whether the story starts out in this setting, travels back in time, or jumps parallel universes makes no difference to me. I love a setting so full of wonder, with clean energy and beautiful living space, that it has the power to change people. Usually in stories such as these it is the setting, and the way of life, which must be fought for.
