    Favorite Adventuring Environment. What's your preference?

    There are so many, more than i will list, no doubt. So, what is everyone's favorite environment to adventure in?

    Mine will forever be the Underdark. Heck, if i was a player character, i would adventure in the Underdark, for it holds the biggest mystery to me.

    Some choices are: rain forest, forests, grass valleys, deserts, mountains, oceans, sky, space, dimensions, cities, towns, villages, and so on. See poll for a larger list.

    Remember, be sure to list your reasons why? If you have a preference on seasons (hot, warm, cold, freezing, raining, dry, cloudy, foggy, etc.), be sure to mention it.

    All rpgs are welcome. If you mention an alien environment, be sure to give us the details.

    What share you?

    I will admit it, I like it all! My favorite environment is the one that is currently challenging me either as a player or DM.

    Cityscapes of all flavors, be they new or old, pristine or ruined, underground or floating through the clouds. Remote science/military facilities, colony ships gliding through the emptiness of space, and other instances of (semi-)permanent smatterings of people count. Also includes periphery, like mines and quarries and logging camps.

    The why mainly centers around having scenery that begs to be used in a flashy manner. Chandeliers, for example, are meant for swinging from or dropping on opponents, not providing light.

    It's probably easier to list what I don't like: waterborne adventures, airborne adventures, or anything that mixes fantasy and science fiction (spaceships, etc).

    My favorite overall is probably the good old dungeon crawl where you never know what's lurking around the next corner or behind the next door, torch light illuminates only so much and hiding in the shadows can save your skin on more occassions than not.

    The manner in which I GM dictates that I use and like them all, but I must admit I don’t really like adventures in the deserts or Oceans. The world I use is already basically all mapped out already. All the land masses with the mountains and valleys, rivers and forests, everything. And since I don’t railroad players anywhere, they can end up anywhere and that is what I would deal with. The real limiting factor would be where I start them. I try to kind of keep them in the area that is sort of already fleshed out. 90% of the world is not developed more than the barest minimums. The ten percent that I play in is roughed out, with some history and some plot line pre-developed. In this ten percent there are major NPC’s and cities to some extent. The rest of the world is quite nebulous. Since I am a planner, I don’t want to go where I don’t have enough material. I also have minimal real life experience in the desert or on the oceans. So, those two areas would probably be my least fun places to play, but I would go there if the characters went there.

    I prefer outdoor adventures, or away from cities. A city to me is where the group goes back and recuperates, talks to NPC's, buys and sells equipment, etc. Outside the city walls is where adventure lies ...

    Damn, you're right, Panthro82. Well, lucky i added my "other' option. If ever i get a chance to run you through a Traveller rpg(Star Wars, but shhh, it's a secret), i promise you, you will like space adventure. Perhaps one day we will meet up at a Con where i will be running a Traveller game.

    I'm not opposed to it. I loved playing Star Wars but I prefer to play evil characters in Star Wars games. I was a sith lord in the one I played in, but not many DM's want someone to be a sith Lord in a group of good players and Jedi. We worked together because I also hated the Sith Lord they were after. I thought I could be much more evil than him in his position(muwahahaha)

    Playing Evil is always okay in my games. In fact, i encourage it. It's an alignment reserved for advanced players, afaic.

    that sounds enjoyable. If you get this campaign together let me know. I am rusty on the star wars mechanics, but I think it would be alot of fun.

    Urban.
    Competing interests and power bases, intrigue (political, religious, and commercial), a history, and secrets, all concentrated in one handy location.
    What's not to love?

    will always be a fan of dungeon-crawly locales. The mystery, the feeling of always being on your toes, and the danger. THis is just my style of play.

    Deserts and frozen tundra are interesting for something different, but not a staple.

    Okay -- all of the above.
    And for 'other', I'll include other planes of existence, including the elemental planes of shadow, Hell, Abyss, Astral, Ether, etc.
    I'll even include the icy vacuum of space, if provided sufficient support.

    Above ground, below ground, in dark caverns below the sea -- they are all my favorite environments for adventure.

    I always liked forests as both the player and as DM.

    As a player, I can be sure that there won't be a cavalry charge against the party.

    As a DM, there are lots of places from which to launch an ambush against the party.

    And I grew up in a very rural area - I loves me some forests.
