The Abbey of Fitz(-Martin?)

Post by Yaztromo » Thu Sep 27, 2018 10:25 pm

The Abbey of Fitz is just across the river from Vestfold in Blackmoor.
However, I just came across this: The Ruins of the Abbey of Fitz-Martin by Thomas Isaac Horsley Curties (1805) https://epublications.marquette.edu/cgi ... ish_gothic
It is something I don't know. Did you ever heard about it? Is there any connection?

EDIT: here https://larocheworldlit.wordpress.com/2 ... in-tropes/ you can find a quick summary and comment of the plot.

The name certainly sounds similar.

Are there any interesting adventure hooks you think that The Ruins of the Abbey of Fitz-Martin could give the Blackmoor campaign setting?
