[Map] The Temple of Tengu

The Temple of Tengu is a solitary temple high up in the mountains. Rumors say that the temple used to be dedicated for another god, but the servants of Tengu swindled the temple to themselves generations ago. Rarely anyone wanders to the temple to meet its peculiar and mischievous priests without a very good reason…

With this map I tried how a brush pen would work for the borders and tried to simulate the style of old Japanese and Chinese brush paintings. Well, I didn’t quite succeed in that, but still I find the thick edged quite nice. They have their own feel to them.

[Map] The Smugglers’ Cove

 

Some time ago I did a sci-fi themed smuggler hideout. I liked the idea myself and wanted to do a fantasy version of it.

This hideout could be hidden in a rocky bay that’s usually avoided by most seafarers. It has some natural caverns that are adapted to be used as a warehouse and some rooms with beds for short stays or to accommodate people that are going to be transported away on a boat later.

Lately I’ve been practicing the coloring of my maps on my iPad Pro. I have found some promising techniques that have made it a bit easier to do the coloring and shading digitally.

I hope you like this and have use for it 🙂

[Map] The Ghoul Lord’s Dungeon

 

This dungeon can work as a prison or a training facility for gladiators, for example. I wanted to add the creature lair to the map as an a bit more exotic feature that might offer some interesting adventure hooks.

What I had in mind for the lair was that the cavern pit had some foul undead creatures like zombies or ghouls – or something else just as grose like inbred pigs that feast on human flesh. If a prisoner is not co-operative or a gladiator novice does not prove good enough fighter (or is seriously injured), they are fed to the creatures.

Of course a proper ending for an adventure is that someone who needs to be saved is dropped into the lair, and the characters need to fight off the creatures and save the person in trouble at the last moment 😉

[Map] The Dungeon of Trials

 

The immortal oracle lives at the center of the Dungeon of Trials. Many have tried to reach the oracle for their wisdom, but only few have returned with answers. Those who have returned, have told of harrowing visions, terrible traps and unimaginable creatures lurking in the halls and corridors of this spiraling dungeon. 

For this map I tried to test an alternative for the hatching that I have used previously. Also, I wanted to practice a bit the use of colors. This adds quite a few steps to my normal workflow (i.e. at least doubles the time per map), but I must say that the result is also worth it.

I hope you like it 🙂
