    Not sure if this is best best place for this but…it’s here 😁

    I’ve run out of ideas. I’m looking for names of places you would find in a fantasy/medieval village.

    thanks

    Only medieval/fantasy is a bit generic, I could go with “Arty’s Potion Shop” or something like “The Magic Cauldron”… Maybe if you can tell us some names that you are already using, the idea will be more clear?

      This is what I’ve got so far…

      Guild Hall

      Temple

      Tavern

      Inn

      Apothecary

      Alchemist

      Hermit’s Cottage

      There’s no “resources” like wood or ore in the game so I can’t see using things like blacksmith or carpenter. It would be buildings/shops that would support a castle full of wizards. Thanks

        You could have a cathedral but that might be too close to a temple. If you want a good list of places for medieval times the cards from the game Dominion have a lot of buildings among other things.

    When I’m reading the comments I realize this is unclear if you’re looking for “names” of places, or if you’re looking for places at all that you could find in a fantasy city 🙂 Let us know which one it is! There are plenty of name generators if you’re looking for names, else if this is just some “worldbuilding” and what one would find in a fantasy city, as a TTRPG DM I have plenty ideas to give 😀

      Hi Aude,

      It’s types of places that I’m looking for…these action spaces in a worker placement game 😀

        I see! I just read what you had above as well! A few suggestions:

        – A library

        – A bathhouse

        – Depending on the side of the city and its importance, ambassies?

        – Magical creatures shop

        – A mapmaker

        – A tailor

        – You said there wouldn’t be a blacksmith or a carpenter, but what about a jeweler?
