"Due to the dead."

Am I the only one who is ever weirded out by how long lasting simple wooden grave markers tended to be in fiction? I can't help but think that thing would have been lost long ago by this point...

I gotta say you're doing a great job with this arc so far. Actually doing any sort of good drama in an RP is pretty tricky, given the emotional wait isn't quite the same as if you're actually the one going through it all. I also very much like that you AREN'T forgetting this is a bunch of people around a table, so there is still heinously clunky role playing dialogue etc amongst it all. Really good work.

Well, Nojiko and Genzo and other people who care about her all still live there, so maybe they periodically lash together a new cross for her when the old one gets too shoddy-looking?

"Tell a Story: Improbably Durable Landmarks"

It's not just plot-important graves that are improbably durable, but they're a prime example of how EXACTLY what you need to find can still be there long after it should have rotted, shattered, crumbled, or fallen to ruin.

Share a story about a landmark you were either guided by, or needed to find, that improbably withstood the test of time.

In-game, or in real life?

Because in-game I had one DM who made a shipwreck dungeon in the middle of a sea of fire in the Elemental Chaos. That boat should've been burned to ash long before we got there.

I've got a real one too: an old bench in the woods near my home. It's been there longer than my GRANDMOTHER has been alive, no one tends to it that we know of, yet it's still safe to sit on. Doesn't look it, but it is.

I now want to vote we camp out this bench to see when the adventuring party turns up.

You sure? Unless it was a pretty spectacular wreck, if it was wrecked in a sea of fire, it was sailing on a sea of fire. If it was sailing on a sea of fire, logic dictates it would be fireproofed.

Eeeh. Not necessarily. They /were/ sailing in the Plane of Elemental Chaos. Material Plane rules need not apply.

You can't fool me. Crosses in fiction are always made of petrified wood!
