This piece just gives me the awe of exploration of the unknown and the promise of adventure.
This piece of art is superb. Totally agree with everything you say about it. I played in this campaign, run by @TheSword , and it was brutal!
My half-ogre cavalier, Gunther Von Panzerkrieg, was pretty brutal too...

This is the start of adventure, the home base to launch from, the safe redoubt to rest up and heal in without worrying about monsters.

The Keep on the Borderlands.

This is an Erol Otus piece from the back cover of the B2 module, it foregrounds the keep itself as a place, the party are just small shadows in the dawn/sunset scene.

Place: In front of the Green Griffon

This might be cheating a bit, since the "Green Griffon" AFAIK isn't detailed somewhere and this is actually heavily inspired by real-world Rhodes, but I've always loved this piece which is very evocative.

I’m gonna cheat and use a pieces from WFRP 1e which was to be honest massively inspired by D&D.

It is Castle Wittgenstein on the river Reik. An ill favoured place that most boatman pass as quickly as possible. Strange twisted things are often pulled out of the river down stream of the castle.

The castle has a beautifully detailed floor map as well which matches the illustration. Such a good location. Which my players may be seeing again soon.

As one of the aforementioned players, I am now very worried!

From C1 Hidden Shrine of Tomachan
Artist - I believe that's a Trampier

This is the module that made me fall in love with Greyhawk. I was all of 12, 13 years old when we played this. The history just drew me in. Lost spaceship the II Redraw just stuck with me forever. It's a well I've gone back to time and time again.
