Ambience

A lot of fantasy RPG settings are analogues of medieval Europe, with a few notable exceptions such as Tekumel. My primary source of inspiration for the look and feel of Ilayson lies very much In Europe, but the later period of the Renaissance. Consequently, the setting is a little more civilised (for want of a better word), although brutality and stomach-churning depravity lurk in every shadow. Modes of dress, and the basic functioning of society across its myriad strata, are influenced greatly by historical understanding of fifteenth-century Europe.
