Basic Information

A Monument is a type of structure built to commemorate a person or event of importance. These include statues, war memorials, and historic buildings. By that definition, a simple gravestone can be considered a monument of sorts, but the word usually implies something grander. A structure not originally built for this purpose might be considered a monument if it becomes embraced by people as a symbol of their cultural heritage.

  • An important memorial might make a good setting for a scene
    • "You will meet your contact in front of the War Memorial in Fountain Park."
  • An important McGuffin might be hidden somewhere inside or underneath a memorial
    • The trick is, how do you find it without getting arrested for defacing public property?
      • The answer: put on a Hi-Viz, fence it off and, if you like, put up a tarp tent. Unless the actual maintenance people are around no-one will question you.
