For Blood Fortune, it was a trip to Venice. I visited some of the buildings that were historical and the inspiration struck there, between the beautiful masks and the history of Italy.
Please share your setting for Blood Fortune. Have you ever lived or visited there? If so, what did you like most?
Venice, Italy 1850 - Yes, I was there. Not 1850 obviously but we took a trip there for vacation. I loved the people, the history, everything about it.

Go with the flow.
