The Nordic city of Hellhest. Where, according to Legend, a group of Heroes once stopped a Mad Wizard from summoning a Stone Titan.
A group of four unknown heroes had saved the city of Hellhest from certain destruction long ago. A statue and four maple trees erected in their honor.
When I create a fantasy city like this I like to keep a nice balance between the fantastical and the functional. Make it possible for the DM to create his own stories with the elements provided, but try to not to insert too much complexity so that it remains manageable to navigate the city. There are just a couple of major defining details and multiple minor details that any DM could be able to interpret in his own way.
In order to bring the city of Hellhest to life, I decided to make both a 2 dimensional top view and a 3 dimensional side view of the city. I’ve only provided detail to the city and the rest of the mountain it has been built upon, that way a DM should be able to place it wherever he would like to inside of his own campaign.
