Oooh, love some of these.

How about http://atlasobscura.com/place/nan-madol

Quote
Evidence of the earliest human activity dates back to the first or second century BC. The construction of artificial islets started probably about 8th and 9th century AD. However, the megalithic structures were built in period of 12th to 13th century, about the same time as the stone construction of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, or Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

The complex of Nan Madol is constructed on a series of artificial islets in the shallow water next to the eastern shore of the Pohnpei island. The site encloses an area approximately 1.5 km long by 0.5 km wide and it contains nearly 100 artificial islets.

Ta Prohm is easily one of the great sites -- LOTS of great images available on the web, and the layout map leaves lots of room to add things of your own.

Strangler fig trees and creeping lichens devour ruins at Ta Prohm, once home to hundreds of monks. To build their magnificent complexes, Angkorís feudal rulers relied on revenue generated by rice growing.

Then there are the ruins of San Ignacio Mini

Text from http://www.frontiersoftravel.com/travel_experience.php?type=History&name=Jesuit_Missions_in_South_America
Quote
Five Jesuit missions were built in the land of the Guarani Indians in the 17th and 18th centuries, four of these are in present day Argentina and one in Brazil. The ruins at San Ignacio Mini are the best preserved of these. The missions were all laid out in the same pattern with a large open square surrounded by the church, residence of the Fathers and houses of the Indians. The Jesuits purpose was to educate the natives and convert them to Christianity and they also sought to protect them from capture and abuse from Spanish and Portuguese colonists.

Here's a cool site I wanted to use for a fantasy city someday, a city based on a plug/pillar in an extinct volcanic crater:

http://www.jessevandijk.net/g_08_76.html

Huh. That's very similar to a tomb I conceived for one of the old AEG Adventure Keep products (Out of Body, Out of Mind, for those interested).

My volcano was still active though. Wink

I always that that was you adapting the prison from the D&D cartoon...

One site I've wanted to use for a long time is Old London Bridge. Basically, a small town built upon a massive bridge.

I ran a few scenes there when my group was playtesting Gulliver's Trading Company. Its a great spot especially if you leverage the environment: Beggers, thieves, alleys leading to the edge of the bridge, slippery steps down, the roaring water at the bottom, colourful boatmen etc. Also the lack of good urban planning is a great way to drive home the period to players.

You know something? I have that AEG module ... and it is awesome.
The players I ran it for, they absolutely hated it because the whole thing was just one giant deathtrap.
Mind you, they were not the most intelligent of players ... their idea of strategy was "hey diddle diddle, straight through the middle".

It is rather hostile - largely by design.

Yeah, not thinking on your feet is a surefire path to a TPK in that one.

Nope - this is an old Adventure Keep module I wrote for AEG. It was developed for Third Edition D&D.

I think Nan Madol was one of the inspirations for the ruins in the new King Kong. I remember Jackson banging on about the stone log construction.
