At the moment an adventure in the boneyard consists of walking across a barren plain and looking at shrubs and seagulls, and then maybe finding a big skull. This isn't anything a DM couldn't just make up on the spot. Any interesting locations? What's the weather like?

The Boneyard of the Titans[edit]

A monumental discovery
Viking Quest by Sean Vo
Day 17: We have finally reached the high plateau and our spirits have been greatly lifted. Our last climb was the most perilous yet, but by the gods’ mercy we have lost no more of our band. We are amongst the clouds now and the air is very thin, only our goliath guide is at full strength.

The plateau is strange indeed. A plain of limestone stretches in all directions, cut with regular clefts only inches wide, but oftimes meters deep. The land is seemingly devoid of life save for the hardy briars that shelter in the cracks from the constant gale and the seabirds that cry out all around. We have seen only but a few hundred yards from our camp as the clouds surround us in constant fogs. Tomorrow we explore.

Day 18: What madness has over come us. I thought I saw a cathedral rising in the mist, white as marble and of some foreign construction, but the clouds parted briefly to reveal the whole. Eye sockets like giant caverns and a nose cavity larger then the city-gates of Gaibannon.

Only a god could have skull of such size.

We moved onwards only to find hundreds bones of equal enormity. Rib bones that tower like redwoods and walls of ivory: humerous, femur and pelvis. And such teeth! Each the size of a house. It is hard to guess how many creatures died to create such an ossuary

Small hardy plants grow in the narrow clefts in the limestone pavement. Some of the same sturdy briars can be found growing to greater size when sheltered in lea of some great bone, along with mushrooms and moss.
