My mind has run off by itself. It likes the arctic setting I'm trying to come up with for an RPG System Which I Will Determine Later.

I want to call it "Overland," after the vast expanse of ice between the pyre cities. I could also call it something like "Flamedeath," because the background talks about the death of the fire god, but the overland is going to come up more.

I did look up the word "overland" and it is an adjective meaning "travelling or passingĀ over land," so it doesn't quite mean what I want it to mean. On the other hand, I like the statement, "If you want to go to a pyre city, it's the land you have to go over, so we call it 'overland,'" even if it doesn't fit the dictionary definition.

Each one holds a dark secret tied to the pyre, and the pyre maintains a temperature that allows the city to grow food, so everyone in that city will maintain the secret to keep the city's pyre going. One of the cities has one person who must be tortured, or the pyre fades out. Another city has a number of people that it must keep to, exiling people if it ever goes over that number, or the pyre fades away.

It's a bleak setting, and I'm working on it.
