Thread: Blood Falls and an iceless desert in Antarctica

  1. #1

    Link Blood Falls and an iceless desert in Antarctica

    Not specifically map-related, but very cool:

    There is a glacier in Antarctica that seems to be weeping a river of blood. It’s one of the continent’s strangest features, and it’s located in one of the continent’s strangest places — the McMurdo Dry Valleys, a huge, ice-free zone and one of the world’s harshest deserts...

    Wow, that's pretty cool.
    Kind of makes my imagination go wild - thinking about other worlds for games.

    Reminds me of "At the Mountains of Madness"

    Yeah, I think the desert in the middle of an ice block is at least as interesting as the bleeding ice. A great place to send the PCs...

    It's pretty cool. Was just reading D&D's Frostburn, a genre book about ice wastes (natural, magical, or extraplanar), and this terrain makes me think about that. I forget what it's called but there's some sort of blood ice in there...along with negative energy ice and other nasty stuff. I remember reading about a few of them and thinking, "that's kinda lame". But, now that I've seen red ice, maybe I'll have to change my mind.
