What is Here Be Dragons?

On early maps, the unexplored areas beyond the known world were often marked with illustrations of fantastic beasts and labeled simply, "Here Be Dragons." This blog is an exploration of imagined places, both from my own daydreaming and from the works of others.

Here Be Dragons is an ongoing collection of my notes about tabletop roleplaying games and worldbuilding. Those notes will not be restricted to one game; you are likely to see posts about Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Shadowrun, Numenera, The Strange, and more. Beyond that, sometimes notes here will be about worldbuilding in general or feature settings and ideas I have come up with that aren't attached to any game in particular.

So Who Am I?

My name is Jason Levine. I've been a tabletop roleplayer since middle school, when I was introduced to the Dungeons and Dragons "red box" set. I've been playing games and building worlds ever since, including a time as a writer for the Shadowrun roleplaying game.

A Note About Artwork

This isn't a commercial blog and is only about me getting out ideas that I have rattling in my head. Sometimes I may use artwork found on the Internet, created by extremely talented artists. Wherever possible, I will attribute their work. If I am unable to find out who created a piece and you know who did, please, drop me a line.
