    Turgenev's Friday Freebie Maps

    First a little background. Every Friday I release a free map since Halloween 2015. For example, here is the link to the current 2018 maps.

    http://paratime.ca/ff2018.html

    The free maps are WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you get) but I do offer a white background and a dark one. Since mid-2016, I've included a Friday Enhanced map option (layered PDF with numbers on/off, secret doors (and other hidden items) on/off, and the white and black background options) and a zip file with all relevant maps as jpg images. If you want colour maps with lots of detail, this thread is not for you.

    And now here is the November 16, 2018 Friday Freebie map. Click to enlarge.





    Map Details:
    * The irregular shaped dots represents rubble/loose rocks.
    * Areas 1, 11, 20, 26, and 27 have pillars.
    * Area 2 has a (magical?) pool/fountain.
    * Areas 3 b) and 27 have statues.
    * Areas 7 a) to 7 c) are the 10' x 10' rooms.
    * Area 12 a) has an open pit.
    * Area 25 has a tapestry.
    * Area 26 b) is a chasm.
    * Area 28 has a covered pit trap.

    I have an Enhanced version of this week's Friday Freebie for sale here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...d-Map-11162018

    The November 16, 2018 Friday Enhanced Map product contains a multi-layered PDF (allowing the options of white or black backgrounds, numbered or non-numbered areas, and secret doors on or off) and a zip file with all relevant map files as individual jpg images. All for a $1 (US)!

    Cheers,

    The real cool thing is that, learning about his Friday maps through this thread just a couple weeks ago, there's so much "new" content for me to sift through in his past work.

    I might have to rename my megadungeon the Turgenov-Dyson Sphere.

    I have even more (older) freebies at my website.

    Creative Commons Licensed Maps: http://paratime.ca/cartography/index.html

    Other RPG Freebies: http://paratime.ca/rpg-games.html

    I've used a bunch of my Friday Freebies to create my own mega-dungeon map that I called, 'The Nethervaults of Venegrut the Mad.' (Venegrut is Turgenev backwards). Click on image for the link to the freebie version of the map.



    This mega-dungeon level uses my November 04 (2016), November 11 (2016), November 18 (2016), November 25 (2016), December 2 (2016), December 16 (2016), December 23 (2016), January 6 (2017), January 13 (2017), January 20 (2017), and January 27 (2017) Friday Freebie maps.

    The Enhanced map version can be purchased here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product...ath=8392_25744

    This is the October 19, 2018 Friday Freebie map. It is a map that I'm currently using in my own 5e D&D game. In my Greyhawk campaign, this dungeon is known to the players as Jebli Pit (Goblin Pit in Neblin/Gnome). The dungeon used to be a lair for a cult of Asmodeus but they were defeated some 50 years ago and a goblin tribe (the Twistedspine tribe) discovered the dungeon when their own excavations broke through into it (on the 2nd level). The goblins have since expanded their control to the half of the first level (bottom half of the map).

    The reason I'm posting this past FF map is this Friday's map is the second level of the dungeon. Click to enlarge.





    Map Details:
    * Area 2 b) has a covered pit trap.
    * Areas 4 and 19 have pillars.
    * Area 7 has a bed of hay/straw.
    * Area 14 a) has an open pit.
    * To the right of area 14 and in area 25 a) are statues. The statue near area 14 blocks the corridor (perhaps small creatures can make their way through).
    * Areas 14 b), 18, and 20 are traps (what type is up to the DM).
    * Area 16 has three niches/shelves cut from the rock.
    * Areas 22 and 23 have rubble.

    I'm aware this is pretty much too much to ask, but is there some kind of index on your site, such as "crypts" or "temples" or "castles"? You mentioning a temple of Asmodeus got me to think about navigating around your awesome maps.

    The index to my older Creative Commons maps can be found here: http://paratime.ca/cartography/index.html

    I organize my Friday Freebie maps by date. Each year gets its own 'index' page that has thumbnails of each map from that year.
