[Map] The Dwarven Rivergate

Click to enlarge

On the way to the dwarven city of Hakku there’s an old rivergate now infested with goblins and orcs. Passing the rivergate can save over a days worth of travel time, but it is a known fact that taking this route usually means only trouble. The creatures that have taken over the rivergate are ambushing any travelers who are careless or adventurous enough – or in so much hurry – that they choose to take this route to the city of Hakku.

[Map] The Tomb of Devas

When I started drawing this map, the big statue at the center of the main hall became a sort of a center piece for the whole map. I did not come up with a clear story for this map, but instead added various features that might offer different uses for this map.

Perhaps there are creatures living in the cave that pose as the deities that the temple was originally built for. Or maybe an earthquake has disturbed the magical balance of the tomb and something has woken. Or perhaps a cult is conducting their vile necromantic rituals and corrupted this tomb?

What ever the case might be, I’m pretty sure those statues might give some trouble to the adventurers…

[Map] A Bugbear Lair

Small caves are perfect for short “side quests”. You can inhabit them with marauding humanoids, beasts or other creatures, like bugbears in this case. Well, the map was just named after bugbears, but you can use what ever nasty critters you like 😉 As an after thought I would actually use owlbears, but that’s just me… 🙂

The cave has a main entrance hidden behind some big rocks and there’s a small back entrance on the other side of the caves. This could be used as an escape route or for ventilation for example. It should be easy to climb to the small ledge leading to the back entrance.

[Map] A Ruined Castle

Ancient ruined castles with overgrown vegetation and crumbled walls have always been fascinating locations in fantasy RPG’s for me. So, here’s one 🙂

In the cellar there’s a room behind the collapsed hallway. I would treat this as a secret door to see if the characters can notice that there’s something behind the fallen blocks of stone and gravel.

[Map] Drow Temple

Click to enlarge

I don’t usually use graph paper as I find the grid somehow restrictive. Still, I felt like I was wandering off too much from my original mapping style and wanted to kind of rewind a bit backwards and try something simpler for a change.

When I started drawing this map it was supposed to be an ancient alien structure… well, it turned out to be a dungeon after all 😀

When I started adding details I felt that this could work as an underground library of sorts and instead of a dwarven library I wanted to do something different, so I added the spider-like statues to give the place a bit more drow feel to it. I thought that this could also be used in Star Wars RPGs as a Dark Side Sith temple of sorts.
