Formal Garden

My sons D&D game is now in a Fey palace for a while. A curious thing about this palace is that depending on which door you go out of, it’s a different season. This formal Garden is outside the North door, which is Spring. While it is a formal garden, there is a wild edge…

Hedge Maze

My sons D&D game is now in a Fey palace for a while. A curious thing about this palace is that depending on which door you go out of, it’s a different season. This Hedge Maze is outside the west door, which is Winter. I kept thinking about the hedge maze from The Shining when…

room of doom, version 3

This is the third of three versions of this room. The whole room is a gigantic ancient mimic. The chest is to lure hapless adventurers into the room at which point the “door”, which is its mouth, will close and the mimic will proceed with devouring anyone inside it.

room of doom, version 1

I’m planning to inflict this room on my players 3 times over the course of them gaining several levels. The room will look identical each time, but be subtly different. This is the first version of the room. The platform is, in fact, a pressure plate and any change in weight on the platform will…

rovers’ end

Rovers’ End is a small village on the three-way border of Dwarven controlled mountains to the west, human domain to the east, and largely uncontested wilderness to the north. This was a once prosperous village but has fallen on hard times. I originally used the watabou city generator to make this map, but it’s undergone…

wizards tower

This old watchtower is leftover from the Golden Empire. It was once a watchtower on the border, but in the many years since the collapse of the empire, it was abandoned to the wilderness. In spite of its age, this structure is in remarkably good shape and still habitable and is currently the abode of…

temple of the snake cultists

In an overgrown swamp lies an abandoned temple some snake cultists had been using. Why they left is anyone’s guess. Perhaps they fell on hard times. Perhaps they lost the fight with mother nature. What is for sure is that nobody lives here anymore and most of the temple buildings are steadily being reclaimed by…
