Black City Friday - the Thule Archipelago

First look at the Thule Archipelago for the Black City campaign, and a skyline view of the ruined city.

Thule is within the arctic circle and much of the islands are covered by glaciers.  It experiences polar night and midnight sun.  However, the weather and climate is tempered by ocean currents and the winter is not as harsh as similar latitudes on the mainland.

It wouldn't be Black City Friday without a quick sketch - here, the city scape as seen from the fjord.  Thanks Felt!

The Black City


  1. Fantastic map! Looking forward to finding out more.

    - Neil.

  2. Looks great!

    Are there any additional adventure sites in this archipelago? Some exploration would be nice.

  3. I'll definitely turn the islands into wilderness hex crawls. At a minimum, there will be a crashed alien ship somewhere under on the glaciers.

  4. A crashed alien ship, eh? Sort of like The Thing from whatever it was from (thinking the original 1950s film, rather than the Carpenter remake)?

    I like the cross-view. RPG locations need more things like that.

  5. Oh crap! I love it! More please!
