New Runelabs competition is up. This time they want an area to develop, but not the specific content that goes in the area.
My submission "Fossil Island-Continent" https://secure.runes...idea?idea=49047
"North of Morytania lies a lonely continent, long ago inhabited but since then the people have all fled or died. The Anima Mundi on the Continent has been heavily damaged. At its centre is a castle inhabited by a Dragonkin focused on solving the curse that has damned his species. The surrounding lands are covered by the ruins of a civilization long gone, the bones of creatures long dead, and the results of the Kin's experiments. With dark forests, open plains, shattered ruins, and deep dungeons the Continent is ripe for exploration.
The Experiments of the Lone Dragonkin have taken over the abandoned island beyond the castle's border. These Dinosaur-like creatures have been ignored and allowed to flourish by the Kin who has no need for them once he believes his experiment has failed. From gigantic behemoths to small agile animals, the island is home to a diverse group of creatures.
The Varrock Museum has discovered this continent and have kept it as secret as possible for fear that others may go exploring and interfere with the Museum's research. As part of their cover-up they minimized the size of the continent to any outsiders they did tell, hoping if word did spread it would seem like merely a small island of little interest.
Some Gielinorians have discovered the museum's deception. Fearful of the increased tensions, sporadic battles, and death that has accompanied the return of the Gods, these people seek to flee the main lands and colonize this new island as a safe haven. They have approached the World Guardian, and asked for help in discovering the Continent's location.The small colony on the Continent would need the World Guardian's help to set up and stay protected. It could possibly expand in the future as the colonists become settled but wouldn't be much more than a village at first."
