It is a large oval pit with a solid inner pillar. From above, the hole resembles an eye carved out of the earth. It is said that the wizard known as Shum'Morak had complete domination over the element of earth. He commanded the earth and...

    Here is the June 14th, 2019 Friday Freebie map. Click to enlarge. Map Details: * I envision this shrine as being dedicated to a cult who worships an evil sea god/goddess. The location of the shrine is near the coast as it has underground water channels that connect to a nearby sea. Naturally a DM/GM can ignore all this and go with their own ideas. * The grey areas are water. Several...

    A handful of maps from my previous D&D campaign (mostly BECMI D&D with spells from the 1st Edition AD&D PHB). First up is a flying/floating sky island. Click to enlarge. The two black icons are stone circles and the middle icon represents ruins.

    More maps from the archives. This was from my homebrew campaign world of Yrthea that I ran using a hybrid of BECMI/1st Ed. AD&D. The dungeon scale was 1 square = 10'. Cheers, Tim

    Another one from the archives. This time it is from my previous D&D campaign. It was a stone keep, located on the top of giant petrified trees, of a mad storm giant called Vulturnus. Click to enlarge. Cheers, Tim

    I've been reading my copy of Ghosts of Saltmarsh and the nautical theme reminded me of a pirate treasure map I did back in 2011. Thought I would post it here. Click on image for the map PDF. Cheers, Tim

  • 09:38 PM - MonkeezOnFire mentioned Turgenev in post On Presentation, Performance, and Style- Players and DMs
    ...m in as a player there are two DMs that each do a lot of work to draw out detailed maps and tokens. There is very little theater of the mind, only occurring when we venture somewhere that doesn't have a prepared map. Even out of combat most of the action takes place on the maps and through descriptions of things as we view them from a top down angle. Music also plays a big part with the DM's curating a library in the Roll20 game. In the game I play I don't prep nearly as much. Anything out of combat takes place in theater of the mind. In towns or during travel I will display some art that I grabbed from Google or a hex map of the surrounding area that I have made. For combat maps I grab as much as I can from the web though will sometimes produce my own battle maps using assets freely available (background textures + tokens). There are plenty of free dungeon maps online and I am starting to find I get more creative in dungeon design when I have a solid starting point. The threads by @Turgenev and @Dyson Logos here on the boards have saved me at the last minute a couple of times in this regard (you both do great work :)). I also also have a small collection of music that I've uploaded to Roll20 to have in the background for mood. In general though I run a much lighter game than the one I play in. Jokes and references are common (a lot of them come from me).

  • 08:10 PM - Satyrn quoted Turgenev in post Turgenev's Friday Freebie Maps
    I had someone ask me about the weird arrow slits to nowhere in the corridors that branch off Area 22. I said I call those arrow slits 'corridor nipples.' :D <j/k> They are whatever the DM wishes them to be. I had a few ideas while drawing the map. 1) They are the source of a fireball (lightning bolt?) trap in each corridor, 2) Perhaps once the secret room is entered, the secret door disappears leaving only a stone wall and no way out of the chamber. To return the secret door, one would have to go through the trap infested corridors and reach into the small niches to turn a mechanism that makes the secret door return. 3) Perhaps the double door at area 26 is a portal to another realm/dungeon/plane. It is normally a false door but should the mechanism in those corridors be activated, then the false double door becomes a portal. Cheers, Tim The other mystery to answer is why is room 27 almost, but not quite symmetrical? Is it perhaps, actually perfectly symmetrical, but the mis...

  • 08:21 PM - Hriston quoted Turgenev in post For the 12th Day of Christmas: Class Affinities of the 12 Olympians
    Thanks for the thoughtful reply! Great stuff about Dionysus here. Euripides' Bacchae was the main reason I settled on Barbarian for him. I just wanted to pull a few things out of your post to respond to. The Berserker path could also work for Ares since he was also a god of not just war, but also courage and bloodlust. Ares presided the emotions that lead to violence: hatred and rage. Ares would also have been invoked in an attempt to calm those emotions. In past D&D games, I've re-skinned the Horn of Valhalla as the Horn of Ares. Agreed, Ares would work well as the rage guy. Surprisingly, I think Dionysus could also be connected to the Bard, College of Lore, since he was also celebrated as the god of plays and choral song. I think that's where I'd put him too, if displaced by Ares, moving Apollo to Light Domain Cleric and Athena to Battle Master? I like how cleric references Athena's connection to wisdom, which is why I settled on my current formulation. I could see Fighte...

    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. Tim, I don't know if it's slipped my mind to say this until now, but thank you for this fantastic contribution to the community. Both you and Dyson Logos are phenomenal for the work you do, and I apologize for not noticing it sooner. Thank you again.

    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. http://paratime.ca/ff2018.html http://paratime.ca/ff2017.html http://paratime.ca/ff2016.html http://paratime.ca/ff2015.html Cheers, Tim Woah. I wouldn't have noticed your Creative Commons maps without the link. That's . . . a lot of maps.

  • 02:41 PM - Joseph Nardo quoted Turgenev in post Plumbing the Depths of Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage -- A Review
    Thank you for the kind words about the cartography, brimmels. I'm a firm believer that while a map should be pleasant to the eyes*, it must also be functional for the DM. Doing the maps for Undermountain was a huge thrill for me. * Naturally what looks nice varies from person to person (it is subjective in nature). Cheers, Tim Hartin You have participated in the greatest dnd product ever. I have fallen in love as I sit here and read my copy. Your maps are old school excellence!

  • 05:27 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted Turgenev in post Waterdeep: Dungeon Of The Mad Mage Preview Roundup!
    There are 23 more in the Dungeon of the Mad Mage book. Speaking of the same map style, every Friday I put up a new freebie map (with a commercial option as well) on my website: http://paratime.ca/friday.html Nice work! Do you know what the map pack maps will look like? Are they just loose leaf reprints of the maps you drew for the hardcover? Or are they a different size or different maps?
