Episode 200 Let’s Build a Crypt

Today's Topic Create a home for a bone

Montjuic Cemetery Barcelona

So I was looking for a crypt to have Michael break into to help gather what is needed to pull off the heist for the jewels of Daivvavaahra. Crypts are classic fantasy fair, It is a great reason to go down into the dungeon.  However, This is meant to be a minor piece of a heist story, not a focus.  I also wanted some element in my world to be influenced by Montjuic Cemetery in Barcelona.

It goes up into the cliffs, not down into the earth. There are major differences. However, the stacked elements of the cemetery are what inspired my version on Gardul. Join Michael and I as we create a crypt.
