This gazebo inspired the portal from which Hailey and Alex first enter Coursodon in Special Rewards.  The structure can be found at Terra Studios in Durham, Arkansas (near Fayetteville, Arkansas, in the Ozark Mountains).  I can picture the sun reflecting off all the little glass bluebirds.  It must be beautiful! 

Frank's.jpg

The inspiration for "Pancho's" in Special Offers.  Would you eat here if you didn't know the food was delicious?  I've eaten at Frank's hundreds of times and contrary to Sebastian's fears, have never gotten food poisoning once!

Tapir 2.jpg

The inspiration for the Klydilap in Special DeceptionsMale tapirs do, indeed, have a prehensile penis (and snout). If you'd like to see a rather disturbing NSFW visual, click below. (WARNING: You won't be able to peel the image out of your brain once you've seen it). Scratch My Itch

 

The Kanamara Matsuri festival in Kawasaki, Japan, gave me the idea for the Klydilap festival.

This gorgeous photo of the Methow Valley in Washington, USA, not only makes up part of the cover for Magic Unfurled, but is also the inspiration for the area around Pevlut. Looks like a painting, right?
