Site of St. Trillo's Celtic Monk's Cell, Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales.
St. Trillo was a 6th century CE celtic monk who established a hermit's cell on this site. His original cell is long gone, likely constructed from wattle, daub and a wall of stones. The site was probably chosen as it is the source of a natural spring (under the altar in the current six person chapel). The current chapel is of an unknown age and has been repaired many times over centuries. It is likely that St. Trillo kept livestock in the marshes that once occupied the land which is now currently the town centre. Rhos-on-Sea gets its name from this site. The current chapel is thought to be the smallest in the UK.

Hi, me and my friends are planning a story set in a urban setting, and we decided that we would just create a remote island of our own so we could get creative. Although we're kinda stuck on how to go about creating it, so do you have any tips?
Hey anon, sure thing!
First thing, have a brainstorming page where you you can drop in all your ideas. Some of them will be gold and some of them will be incompatible so it helps if you can see what's going on. Depending on how you think, you can use something like a word or google doc, or you can use something that's more like a virtual corkboard so you can see everything at once.
(if you go with the second, I recommend a free platform Milanote, which you can sign up for here: https://www.milanote.com/refer/rcD4BodhMdhUngyUDX - note that this is a referral link but you can also sign up by just searching up milanote and signing up on your own)
Second thing, consider the following needs of a story setting:
Where do characters get food - is it grown or imported, and if imported, what do they use to pay for it, and where is it imported from. If it's grown, what kind of food do they produce, and what does it say about the type of terrain that's there?
What kind of shelter is there - what materials are structures made of? Are these local or exported, and what does that say about the location? How does shelter change between different economic classes? What is the architecture like - how does it play to the strengths of the materials they have and the climate?
Where do they get water from - is it readily accessible, or is it something that takes effort to get? What's the quality? If it's atrocious or hard to get, are there other popular means of hydration? How does economics play into this?
What kind of transportation is there - is it mostly public or private transportation, if it's private, how and where do people maintain their vehicles (assuming they're not walking). How feasible is it to travel abroad? How does social status play into all of this?
What are the needs of the location in terms of plot - if there are certain plotpoints that have specific sub-locations, how are those locations integrated into the wider setting from the get-go? If there's some kind of custom the people have, what about the setting/the setting's history will have caused that custom?
For each of these points, make sure you have at least a couple bullet points (except for possibly the plot question if you don't have a plot yet). This will create a starting ground that you can build up from.
The third thing is optional, but it's to create a map. This will help with consistency down the line so that you're not saying the same thing is in two seperate places, or that two seperate things were accidentally in the same place. I recommend using some kind of graph or hex paper so that you can scale it. If where things are is important to the story, I strongly recommend doing a map, but if it's not really, then don't worry about it unless it's something you're really interested in doing.
Hopefully this is enough to get you started. Happy writing!

I’ve been making some water sources for the town. Natural groundwater just isn’t as satisfying as a 4 way waterfall from a cliff, or a mounted star fragment.

Looking at Mount Rainier, you might notice the many glaciers.
Or maybe you see the snow that accumulates over the long winter?
Driving around the mountain, the rivers can leap out at your eyes.
But when you stop at Sunrise, Box Canyon, or Longmire and fill up your bottles for a hike, do you notice the water then?
Sitting at the cafe at Paradise, do you ponder how the water got to your table?
There are water systems all over the park: Carbon River, White River, Sunrise, Ohanapecosh, Paradise, etc. And there are folks working to keep water available and healthy. Whether it’s starting a system up for the summer, shutting it down for winter, or regular operations, our Utilities staff is constantly testing the water to make sure it’s good. Testing, in fact, is one of their most useful tools. Some tests are done on site. Some in the lab. And some are sent away.
Providing healthy water is a job that’s never done. A big thank you to the NPS employees who do this tireless work. ~ams
