D&D Catacombs Map

Having had so much fun with my first dungeon map I really couldn't wait to do the second level. Having drawn up the basic sketch on Saturday night I got really annoyed when my felt pens ran out last night and I couldn't finish it! Guess where I rushed off to today at lunch? Yep, the pen shop... :-)

So here we have The Catacombs...


Entry is via the stairs from level one on the south east corner. These lead into the dressed stone areas with the shelves for the bodies. You can also get down from above by falling through the large trap door or into the well over the river (coloured grey), neither of which would be preferred! The rest of the map is natural caves, populated with the usual sloping passages, bottomless crevasses, choking narrows and an ancient statue to some forgotten god. Exit to the surface is via the tunnel to the south west.

I'm having so much fun I've decided to turn this into a fully fledged D&D module for starting characters, full of cliches and homages. Stay tuned.

Cheers,
Millsy

    Could you get Erol Otus to do the cover art, do you think? Plenty of colour and movement!

    1. If only. Now that I'm writing a module to go with the maps that's top of my mind. I'm a pretty ordinary artist when it comes to people unfortunately. I may have to convince Nug to draw me a few images. :-)

  2. Just caught up with your blog. he maps are very nice. I haven't played D&D since high school, but I'm getting more tempted each day. Your stuff for the painting challenge has been top notch as well.

    1. LOL. I'm blaming +Ed Allen. He gave ME the itch. Clearly its contagious.

  4. Then the itch chain spreads into a trident. It was maps by +Dyson Logos, +Kevin Campbell, and +Matt Jackson that got me interested again this fall.
