Late Jurassic Scenario: Land of the Giants.

Walk among the the Giants with the Late Jurassic Morrison scenario. The Morrison represents a widespread area in the western United States during the Late Jurassic. It was a flood plain characterized by rivers, small ponds and lakes in the wet season. The semiarid Morrison Formation formed as a series of streams, lakes, and rivers and was seasonally wet and dry. The Morrison is world famous for its fossils of dinosaurs; Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, Allosaurus, Diplodocus, Camarasaurus, Ceratosaurus. Plants were giant conifers, ginkgo, cycads, and horsetails, ferns. No flowering plants. This scenario is designed to teach the gamers what animals and plants lived in the Late Jurassic of North America.

Late Cretaceous Scenario: The Last of the Dinosaurs.

The Hell Creek formation of Montana and the Dakotas represents the only well studied terminal Late Cretaceous fauna. It contains a varied group of theropods, ornithipods, pachycephalosaurs, ankylosaurs and ceratopsids. The last of the dinosaurs are found here. Also the most famous dinosaurs Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops are from here. It has been the popular vision of dinosaurs and how they lived. The flowering plants dominate the flora; conifers are locally common with ferns and their allies primarily in an herbaceous role. This scenario is designed to teach the gamers what animals and plants lived in the Late Cretaceous of North America.
