We are crowdsourcing the miscellany for Codex - Hearthfire! This one is called “Three Dozen Precarious Places to Make Camp” (with thanks to @Alexi_Sarge for the idea). We expect most entries to be for the fantasy genre, but any genre is welcome.
Submissions should be no more than 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here in the replies, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue).

Note: if you’d like your name to be listed differently on the Codex credit, send me a DM here (but please keep your submissions in the thread).
