Map #55 – Temple of the Lake

Even with their temple in ruins and names forgotten, the spirits of the lake still linger. And they remember. As do the rangers who still guard the temple. Offerings are welcome, but visitors would be wise not to anger either of them.

It’s been a very long time without a map. Here’s one featuring ruined temple and narrow cliffs. There are platforms and makeshift bridges used by the guardians of the temple. They could also just be built by locals who still use temple.

There’s also a version without the borders and one with just the inks. This one was drawn with ink and colored in procreate.

Map #54 – Old Guard Tower

It’s been quite a while. I’ve been getting to know new tools (ipad + procreate) and also finishing the map too quite some time.

The map shows a simple, partially destroyed guard tower (with a basement) along a coast. I had a couple of related ideas on how to use this. First, the players could have learned that a valuable shipment is going to be transported to the shore. How they choose to intercept it is up to them. Or perhaps the players themselves are expecting something valuable, but the guard tower is occupied by hostile (?) forces.

There is a day version, a night version and one with just the drawing.

Map #53 – Silverfish Hideout

Another attempt with simple colors. In the end, it turned out quite ok.

The map is the birthplace of the Silverfish Syndicate. It’s a small dungeon next to a stream that cuts through a ridge. This was the very first hideout of a band of thieves who then expanded their operations over the years. Nowadays, the hideout doesn’t see much use, but whispers in the streets claim there’s a valuable shipment coming through very soon.

There’s also a black and white version.

Map #52 – Abandoned Crypt

This one took a really long time to finish. This is also a ‘pure ink’ -map, so I won’t post an .xfc for this since it is quite literally only the drawing itself in one layer. If someone still wants it, let me know.

This is a small crypt. It has a few sarcophagi and a number of smaller urns and offerings scattered along the walls. It could be housing the deceased of a holy order or just be a generic resting place for local nobles and other well to do. Some of the rooms were still under construction when the crypt was abandoned. You’ll note that one of the small rooms is sealed off. Feel free to put whatever undead monster there. However, the seal has started weakening and necromantic powers should be animating some nasty surprises – zombies/skeletons, spirits or even just maddened beasts.

You can put this underneath the chapel I posted earlier.

#47 – Cloud Prince’s Retreat

This floating palace (or castle) was once inhabited by a powerful air spirit. However, it has been abandoned for a long time and fallen into disrepair. It has a few ‘rooms’, a couple of cells and a small garden.

Now, it could host plane hopping mages or just air elementals. This could make an interesting ‘dungeon’ to scout before players have managed to get their hands on easy means of flight.

I’ve also experimented with a few vortex backgrounds.

Here’s a version without the background.

Map #46 – Sasha’s Workshop

Time for a scifi map. Just ink this time. The workshop is partly inside a natural cavern and there’s enough room to lodge a couple of persons. Most of customers of the workshop would rather keep their business private.

The workshop is very messy and most of the components are of little value by themselves. There is a generator downstairs accessed from the workshop hall and ladders leading to a small observation post.

No alternative versions this time, I’m afraid.

Map #45 – Tower ruins

Another attempt at coloring. I’m still not sure if I know what I’m doing, but some parts were fine, and some parts I’m not maximally happy with.

The map itself is a ruined watch tower. It’s been abandoned for a long time and partially overtaken by water, but recently, it has found new inhabitants.

Here’s a version without the grid and here’s one without any color.
