Many of the pics could be used with sci-fi, but most are more suitable for fantasy or post apocalyptic.

I like 1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 11, 13, 19, 21, 22, 28, 32, and 33.  All could be used for one RPG or another. Number 1 looks like dralasite inspired houseing in Port Loren.

Yes, #1 got me thinking sci-fi immediately.  Hard not to.  Also the Russia Diamond Mine could be a sci-fi dungeon crawl.  An old abandoned mine inhabited by creatures or a community of sub-surface aliens.

Cool, plenty of uses for these as sci-fi settings....civilizations don't advance along a linear path and places can become abandoned for many reasons. Industrial accidents, plagues, famines, financial collapse, etc.

Feh, thanks to the recession we have plenty of those right along Las Vegas Boulevard...not to mention scattered about the rest of the city as well.

I used to work next door to this pile and would occassionally witness a window pane falling to its death. I still have a fair view of it at my current job.

I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide...nor do I have any qualms stating why. Tongue out

Also impressive, though not exactly fitting for SF, is Simon Stalenhags gallery.
Last game played: Somewhere in the 80th (Vrusk by heart) -- fond of Jugger, a "post-apocalyptic" sport

That's a seriously cool art gallery its like sci-fi with a Eastern European/ Russian Post soviet era spin and the cancelled Terra Nova TV series all rolled into one.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
