Portfolio: A Dungeon Map

In this post, I am going to do what I did as a youngster that would always annoy my older brother:  I am going to post an image of someone else's map.

Actually, it isn't quite someone else's map, it is actually my reproduction of a map that, in my opinion, is more aesthetically pleasing than the original.  I am posting it to show people what I can do.  Call it an entry in my cartographic portfolio, if you will.

This map is one that may be familiar to some people in our little corner of the hobby.  If you recognize it, please, PLEASE do not name it or where it came from.  I don't want to give anything away.  Lest anyone get their panties in a wad, I do have the permission of the original map's owner to post my version here.

It is, as I said above, a dungeon map:


  1. Very nice. Perfect for an underground barracks.

  2. Now, I'm not normally one for dungeons, but holy crypt thing, Batman! That one is a beauty. Where scottsz sees a barracks, I see a network of crypts. There's even a chapel at the entrance.

    I'm willing to bet that there's a statue in there somewhere, and around the statues neck there's an amulet. And I'm quite sure that if you touch the amulet, waves and waves of undead will rise. Dammit. Now I want to run a dungeon.

  3. In fact, I can see both. But I cannot take credit for the layout or positioning of rooms or anything about that map, except that it was I who rendered it in the form in which you see it. Thanks for the positive comments!
