You Really Can’t Make This Stuff Up – Part II

Because our group only games alternate weekends for about 4-5 months of the year, we tend to move rather slowly. In November 2012 I published a post titled You Really Can’t Make This Stuff Up about a castle in south-western Germany called Festung Hohentwiel, a virtually impregnable fortress built over a thousand years ago on the magma core of an extinct volcano.

Last Saturday, the party finally, finally made it to the front door. Instead of gaming this afternoon as we’d planned, the five of us jumped in our car and drove 2½ hours down the road to explore the ruins. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t the best for taking photos, but we had a blast nevertheless. Looking at a map on a tabletop is one thing. Being able to visit a location like this was brilliant and inspiring for all of us.

Here are a few photos
