* Laurentia from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is the remains of a ShiningCity dotted with hundreds if not thousands of findable clues both subtle and overt that shed light on what kind of place it was, what sort of civilization lived there, and many events both joyous and tragic that happened throughout its history. By the time the player characters arrive on the scene, its world has already ended and it has been plucked from history by the PowersThatBe to serve as a battlefield. Few if any of the people who lived in Laurentia were brought with it, and players can only explore its remains and wonder what it might have become if it hadn't come to an end. St. Germaine from the original ''Nexus War'' was handled in a similar way.

** [[spoiler:Jane]]'s Sburb land is this, the land of [[spoiler:Crypts and Helium]]. It is very atmospheric and the update it is introduced in contains various puzzles. [[AndrewHussie The author]] himself said that it was an homage to ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' and other such point-and-click games.

* A lot of the landscape crossed by the heroes in ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' is breathtakingly beautiful, yet quite uninhabited by anyone. Justified in that they're avoiding civilization to elude Sauron's spies much of the time, and many areas' usual residents have fled the coming war.
** [[AllThereInTheManual And according to the Appendices at least]] the northern half of Middle-Earth (Eriador) never really recovered from the Great Plague and the war against Angmar, with only the Shire, Breeland and Rivendell remaining as significant population centers.

* The moon. "Magnificent Desolation" indeed. When you are on the light side, sunlight reflected from the ground is so bright that eyes and cameras adjusting to the ambient lighting can't see or capture the stars, making the sky perfectly black with only the sun and possibly the Earth visible. On the dark side, there is only star light in the sky, and perfect darkness on the ground.
