This thread is a resource for anyone who wants to have an magical realm in their back pocket (not literally (unless, maybe, it is magical)). The basic consideration is that the realms be largely independent of other places -- though adventure seeds in the form of entanglements with other realms are welcome as long as they are flexible. Aside from that, any TL, government, or whatever is acceptable.

Here's some examples:

The Architect: The Great Sacred Flame is a truly ancient dragon and demands that its supplicants work to make it a suitable home. It lairs in the ruins of a massive old metropolous, and it has just under a million servants to its name. Though many gather food, make tools, even police the other "servants," their ultimate aim is solely to collect from the ruins what is needed to construct a great palace even by the standards of the winged fire-god they serve.

The Holly Wood: There are two cities; the Lost, and within it, the Holly. Within the Holly, all are young, beautiful, and perfect, forever. To get there, one must first traverse the Lost, an urban hunting ground for minor vampire clans and werewolf packs. And, more dreadful than that, one must attain the favor of the Producer, the great fey lord who chooses whom will become one of the perfect ones.

Daemons: Demon worship is frowned upon for good reason, of course. But that doesn't mean you can't use them. Demons are a renewable, locally-sourced resource. Why not turn them against the outsiders that threaten our borders? Why not use them to supplement our flagging workforce? Why not use them to check for spies in our midst? Worried that they'll get out of control? No need for that. Our leaders are experts in controlling rogues, and have even contained an archdevil for all these years!

The Little People: "Begging your pardon, your lordship, we want very little. We just want to go unnoticed by the larger communities." A dangerous request, to make of a Djinn. Now a "small town" of some 20,000 people is shrunk down so that their average height is one inch tall. It's not so bad, compared to how other wishmakers ended up...

Olympia: First they came for wood, then they came for gold, then they came for oil. It all was too much. When the end came for the takers, the forest spirits made a new code. No metalworking; no fuels other than wood. No farming. Break the rules, and the beasts will find you and teach you humility. Some 30,000 people live in these forests, moving with the seasons. Many more stray into the rainforests to avoid more overtly dangerous neighbors; some of them even escape again.
