Default Fantasy Worlds

Hi All,
Looking through the source books, I'm curious as to what homebrewed Fantasy worlds or campaigns are out there?

We have Yrth, Roma Arcana, the worlds of the Collegio Januari and a few realms in Fantasy Portal Realms.

What fantasy or Dungeon Fantasy worlds have you created?

I authored "Tomos, the Divided Land" which appeared in Pyramid back in 2006. The goal was to give GMs a plane-spanning framework for a medieval fantasy game in GURPS, Yrth having the disadvantage that players are trapped there.

Tomos is a Greek-flavored TL2-ish culture from a world called Amalle which consists of large groups of islands with no major continents. Amalle abuts the Divided Land, which is a portion of the Elemental Plane (or decan, if they were aware of GURPS' more usual magical theory) of Earth and has mappable routes to many other maniferous worlds. Tomos knows where the main natural gate is and possesses (and tries to keep classified) the knowledge of Gate spells. Parties with access to route information or well-informed guides can do business across worlds of their choosing.

There have been a number of collaborative setting riffs for fantasy on the forums that you could look at:

My favored personal fantasy world is a TL6 oceanpunk/dieselpunk world, light on the punk, with a variant of ritual path magic.

We have a Post apocalypse Fantasy setting called Shattered Empire. It's a world that formerly had a powerful empire with advanced magic that was strangling 4 different kingdoms until something went wrong and their magic imploded. Now there's a magical wasteland in the middle of the map and all of the monsters that the Empire was building are roaming free.

That sounds rather interesting. Kind of an Atlantis falls spewing monsters across the Mediterranean.

I have an idea for an apocalyptic campaign where a great empire went the industrialized "urban magic" approach and it goes horribly wrong as the mana goes wild and the weather and zombie labour force rebel against their control while earthquakes wrack the cities.

That vaguely reminds me of The Elder Things from Lovecraft's At The Mountains Of Madness.
The Elder Things fall from greatness, technologically and culturally, their slave creations rebel, and the weather of course leads to "modern" Antarctica.

Edit: I feel the need to say that that is not a criticism as it's one of my favorite stories, and only barely similar all things told.
