[Map] Crater Hideout

 

This small facility is located in a now passive volcano that’s around 1 km in diameter. The crater’s walls hide this small hideout with a landing pad.

The hideout has enough room for bodyguards and servants in addition to the luxurious banquet hall at the center of the complex and a separate section with a suite, armory and a secret food supply for prolonged stays.

I designed the entryway so, that possible attackers would not be able to attack straight into the central hall or the suite, but there but be multiple corners and turns for the defenders to take cover.

Also, the dotted lines mark emergency bulkheads that can be lowered when needed.

[Map] Beacon Station

 

The groundwork for this map was done as a #mapvember map, but I wanted to finalize it by adding some details and proper annotations.

The initial theme was a beacon station that would work as a hyperspace beacon and space traffic control station, but I think this could also work as a listening station, communications link station, scientific observation station or even the pressurized interior of a space ship (with out the engines part).

I hope you find use for this or get inspired by it.

[Map] Processing Plant

 

This map started as one of my #mapvember maps, but ended up being a bit too arduous. So, I left it aside for awhile and later finished all that piping around the map (which too some time to draw btw 😀 ). I think this map works great as a section of a factory or even an atmospheric processor.

I hope you enjoy it.

[Map] The Hangman’s Bailey

 

The Hangman’s Bailey is an encounter map with a single bailey with a hanging platform and it is designed to be a part of a larger castle structure.

When I started working on this I thought that a map depicted straight  from top would look a bit boring, so I decided to try this approach instead. For this map I also had to study a bit how are the medieval castles actually built and structured.  To be honest I had never really thought about it before. Of course I had seen pictures of castles and even visited a few, but I did not understand why they were built like they are.  Anyway, this map was good practice overall.

[Map] Imperial Detention Block C2-38

 

This map was made according to the wishes of one of my long time patrons as an on-going $5 reward. I was asked to do a detention block with some interrogation rooms and to me this sounded like a very useful idea. I decided to design this cell block as a modular unit that could be easily slapped together with some other map or used in many different settings (regardless of its starwarsy name).

Also included: the mandatory trash compactor chute.

[Map] The Hidden Tomb of the Last Master

 

The forbidden scriptures that were saved from the destruction of the temple’s library had crucial information about the location of Master Noc’dur hidden tomb.  Master Noc’dur was one of the last Guardians who was able to fold space by manipulating the Light. 

The tomb was built inside a mountain to protect it from uninvited guests and terrible storms and hurricanes that are common in the area. The main entrance to the tomb collapsed hundreds of years ago in an unusually strong earthquake, but a secret entrance – or a backdoor – should be still accessible through the caverns inside the mountain.  

The Dark Brotherhood has recently learned about Master Noc’dur’s tomb and they have sent their best Seekers to find it. They must be after the Master Noc’dur’s Codex of Light that was buried in the tomb with him. The codex must be found before the Brotherhood finds it. If they do, they could learn to master the forgotten techniques it holds and none of the remaining exile Guardians would be safe anymore.

[Map] The Fallen Keep

 

The Fallen Keep lies on the edge of the Veles Bamjar or the Spider Forest. It once were an Volodorian outpost guarding the trade routes that went through the deep forest from the coast to the capitol of Volodor in the shadows of the White Mountains, but for three hundred years it has been abandoned and after that it has been a home to a many kinds of creatures.

During its almost three hundred years of abandonment the keep has crumbled into a ruin. Its curtain walls shattered by many winters and the tower has collapsed into a stump of what it used to be. The dungeons and cellars beneath the tower have remained in better condition, but at some point goblins, ankhegs or whatever darkness dwelling creatures have burrowed a tunnel breaking into the lower cellar level of the tower.

[Map] The Dune Bandit Lords Palace

57-dune_bandit_lords_palace-web

The Dune Bandits rule the great Plains of Rust. They have taken over an abandoned monastery deep in the wasteland. The bandits call it the Palace and it is also the den of their lord.  An evil and savage tyrant of the wastelands who will feed all who oppose him to his vile beasts.

#Mapvember2016

I made this list of topics to help with ideas and to add a sense of conformity for those who prefer that sort of approach. Even though this is “the official” list, following the themes and topics is totally voluntary.

 

It’s almost November and time for the 2nd annual #mapvember challenge! It’s an open challenge for all interested in drawing fictional RPG maps.

#mapvember2016 will be held between the 1st and the 30th of November 2016.

About #Mapvember

#Mapvember was held for the first time in November 2015 and all by accident. Around 2014 I found out that some talented people were making really amazing RPG maps and sharing them online. I studied these maps with awe and a growing urge to draw maps, but I never really got the reason or the time for it. Or so I told myself. Then, one day, I got a sudden inspiration to draw a map, but all I happened to have was just a pad of post-its. I drew a small mini-dungeon on a post-it note, but came out as a map that could be played as a short adventure. It was so fun that I wanted to draw another one right away.

It happened to be the beginning of November and as it’s a fad to have all kinds of themed months, so I thought why not make this a “mapvember”! People like me, could have the reason to draw maps again or start drawing maps for the first time. Anyone interested in drawing maps can spare at least 15 minutes every day, or at least every other day, of their lives to draw a small post-it map or such. It really doesn’t take more than that to draw a small map with a couple or rooms. Also, as the idea is to share the maps with others, anyone can benefit from this. Just search from your favorite social media service using #mapvember or #mapvember(year) as the keyword or google it up and hopefully you will find something useful. Isn’t internetz amazing, or what?!? 😀

OK, I’m in!

Great! You can learn more about #mapvember HERE or at www.mapvember.com. Please feel free to share the website so we can get more participants to share their creations all around the social media.

 

[Map] The Smuggler Base 404

56_sugglerbase404-web

 

This map started out as a quick doodle on coffee break, but it ended up as a “real” map. My intention was to release this as just a quick doodle, but I got an idea about trying to use textures with the hand-drawn map.

This was my first experimental hybrid map with hand-drawn lines and shades and photobashed and overpainted colors and textures.  I hope you like it, because you might see more of this in the future 😉

You can get the high-resolution version(s) of this map on Patreon by supporting my work or you can purhase it online on DrivethruRPG and RPGnow.
