library megadungeon: location scouting #3
The magnificent Palace of Fine Arts is a strong contender for the library megadungeon location, as seen in this 1919 photograph:
I can picture it as a crumbling ruined temple, its Classical architecture covered by vines, creepers, muck, and thick vegetation. The big lagoon and marshy terrain is perfect for lizard men, giant mosquitoes and water striders, and of course plenty of giant predatory frogs and lizards. Approaches by water and land from the nearby village. Not a lot of outbuildings around the main structure. It doesn’t resonate with me quite the way Coit Tower does, but it’s definitely on the list.
