Eclipse Ravine (300 dpi promo) Caves and chimneys along Eclipse Ravine are home to a dragon and an abandoned fire temple of a faith imported from the distant City of Brass. The narrow ravine cuts through the badlands of Zorisz with a small stream that in time reaches to Black Sphinx Bay. Eclipse Ravine (1200 dpi, with tags) The main ravine and the two “chimneys” are open to the rough stony terrain above – cut by waters that flowed through these lands before the disapproval of the gods and the coming of the deserts that became the foundation for ancient Zorisz. The smaller chimney is used by a ..read more

Longboat Mountain: Longboat Valley

Here’s the map that started the whole Longboat Mountain set (location G on the Longboat Mountain overview – posted last month). I drew this based on a dream I had just as I was waking up one morning, and liked it enough to expand the whole thing into a whole set of maps. We won’t be tackling the points of interest in the Valley quite yet, as we’ll continue going through the other points of interest on the mountain proper before we detail the key locations up here, but since this map was the one that started it all, I wanted to show it off now instead of hanging on to it for months. Longboat V ..read more

Axe #17 – Ebrek’s Fate

A few years back I drew 50 swords and made “Dyson’s Book of Swords” (available from Squarehex). Then I started on a project to try to draw 50 axes and it just didn’t stick. But I’m trying to draw more things, so here’s Axe #15. This tarnished silvery hand axe shouldn’t be a very effective weapon by design, but the demonic magics that empower it allow it to cut through wood, armour, or flesh more efficiently than a typical axe. Ebrek’s Fate is a hand axe +2 with the clever and vicious temperament of the demon that it was forged from (Int 14, Ego 5 (19 total), speaks demonic). It can Detect Goo ..read more

Longboat Mountain: The Silver Deeps

Today we explore the lower level of the old silver mine that lends its name to Silver Vale (location A on the Longboat Mountain overview – posted last month). The silver mine links to one of the “secrets” of Longboat Mountain – the Silver Stair. Longboat Mountain – The Silver Deep (300 dpi promo) This section of old mines and caves sits beneath Silver Vale Cave and connects via the large cavernous shaft on the upper right of that map that descends to the similarly shaped chamber on the upper level map here. There used to be wooden stairs that led further down into the mines proper, but with t ..read more

Axetember #16 – Urok’s Vengeance

A few years back I drew 50 swords and made “Dyson’s Book of Swords” (available from Squarehex). Then I started on a project to try to draw 50 axes and it just didn’t stick. But I’m trying to draw more things, so here’s Axe #15. This war axe was the main weapon of Urok the Blind, a one-eyed orc warlord in the War of the Broken Mountains. Lost during the fighting, the current whereabouts of the weapon are unknown. It is a battle axe +2, which will sunder the enemy’s shield on a natural attack roll of 18+. Each “plus” of the shield will reduce this chance by 1 (so 19-20 for a shield +1, 20 for a ..read more

Iseldec’s Drop (Levels 9-12)

Iseldec’s Drop (Levels 9-12) (300 dpi promo – no commercial license) We are now deep into Iseldec’s Drop – these levels are hundreds of feet below the ruins above, and those found down here only know of the surface because the twenty-foot wide shaft at the centre of the dungeons pierces to the sky above. Those things that inhabit these depths have no easy way back up as there are no stairs or ladders between levels 8 and 9 – the only way down here are the two small shafts in the southwest corner of level 8, or the central shaft that descends much further down… In fact, this section of the drop ..read more

A few years back I drew 50 swords and made “Dyson’s Book of Swords” (available from Squarehex). Then I started on a project to try to draw 50 axes and it just didn’t stick. But I’m trying to draw more things, so here’s Axe #15. This heavy silver-headed axe is somewhat cumbersome of design with the sculpted wolf’s head behind the blade. But it is a beloved tool of those who have to deal with lycanthropes in a less-than mercantile manner. It is an axe +2, +3 vs Shapeshifters, +4 vs Lycanthropes. Once per night it can cast light with a soft white glow from the silver axe head ..read more

Stonewill Estate

Stonewill Estate (300 dpi, no commercial license) A dubious ally and patron of adventurers in town, “Lord” Eldric Stonewill conducts most of his business from his family home on the ancient cobbled Avenue of Whispers. Here he lives with his suspiciously quiet family and retainers. The building is an old two-story affair with a servants wing, four family bedrooms, study, smoking room, music room, and a crafting room where Lady Stonewill holds her own private court over needlepoint. The west wing of the building is the servants quarters (for servants and men at arms) on the second floor, and the ..read more

Rok’s Pottery Workshop (300 dpi promo, no commercial license) This month I’m starting on yet another series of maps – based on a Patreon request from Mark Clover, I’m drawing up individual floor plans for a number of shops, stores, vendors, and businesses along a single market block. As I draw these, I also have the overhead views drawn out on a map of the city block as I go, so when the series is complete you can use them on their own, or as a fully mapped out block of shops. Our first in the series is Rok’s Pottery Workshop. Rok’s Pottery Workshop (1200 dpi) This store is two floors plus an ..read more
