Portobella

The Great Mushroom Port

Portobella is a world I was developing in 2012, inspired by a recent trip to Asia. I think some of the most compelling designs come from familiar worlds with a slight twist, and touch of magic. 

The residents of Portobella live in symbiosis with the giant portobello mushrooms and exotic flora that grow all around the city. They have a rich culture and economy based on their mushrooms, some highly prized for their value as medicinal ingredients, foodstuff, and aphrodisiacs.
