Got to thinking about photon torpedoes and pseudo-undead (highly irradiated) Vulcans

I like to think it's not disrespectful since it comes down to my internal shared mythology

#fiveminutemaps

Inside this revealed tomb, blasted open by what was thought to be a comet, the party finds a gleaming metal sarcophagus. Inside, the body of a lithe male - perhaps Elfish or some other abhuman - lies in repose. He died of burns, but still appears noble and tranquil in repose.

The other sarcophagi seem primitive and quaint in comparison, and all are trapped. The strange magic of the crypt-zone quickens the bodies inside, and they stir and mutate, now, thanks to the searing radiation of the sky-coffin.

every turn spent in this room requires a Save vs. Death (alternately DC18), or those who fail acquire (1d6) a detrimental physical mutation on a 1-4; a beneficial mental mutation on a 5; or the memories and knowledge of a Lawful Alien scientist and a temporary increase in WIS of 3 points on a 6 (only one 6 result is possible)

It took considerably longer than 5 minutes. 
Last week, I did a quick drawing of a Norse themed building. Today, for the winter solstice, I knocked out a floor plan for a fantasy themed stave church. When sketching this church, I imagined tha...

Mini Barebones dungeon. Doors would have blown the time limit. :-)

A small map I made on a 4 inch by 5 inch sketch pad.
Could be a sky fortress with a planar gate as an entrance as noted.
A maze leads to some sort of fortress which is probably inhabited by something nasty or certainly not happy with anyone visiting uninvited.

Pocket Quest is a new one-page (printed back-to-back) rules-lite OSR fantasy/sci-fi RPG based off the #openadventure  game system. However, unlike other one-page adventure systems, Pocket Quest is full-featured, allowing you to play a long-term campaign with varied and unique characters.

This release is one part of several to come: an additional sheet with optional rules to enhance your dungeon crawl experience, one sheet with weapons, armor and expedition equipment, and one sheet with a list of seven different types of magic. The game master will also have their own sheet for GM rules as well as a sheet dedicated to enemy NPCs and a sheet for treasures and technology.

In total Pocket Quest is an adventure game small enough to fit into your pocket, large enough to play for years! You can download the PDF, as well as the source file at OA's Git Hub Project Page: https://github.com/openadventure/Open-Adventure/tree/master/rulebook/pocket_quest or visit Open Adventure's website at: http://geekguild.com/openadventure/

Pocket Quest, like the parent Open Adventure game, is released under the open source Creative Commons share-alike license.

+Taylor Frank 's request for a post-apocalyptic map. 
Five minutes, and a fail. It was a fun sketch with tools I normally don't use and has a nice passage as a hook for a modern vs magic smashup scenario. 
A user request from Google Plus - post-apocalyptic maps. I am horrible with colored pencils and I have never tried a post-apocalyptic map. What I ended up with was a sketched vinette. "They brought...

Wow, that's fantastic! Quite a lot of creativity on display here!

Based on the premise of the Five Minute map, this is a Norse Themed Church that will one day, be a map for my campaign. 
I've been doodling to get back in the habit of drawing. Tonight's offering is a Norse themed church.

I would like to jump into doing a weekly 5 minute map. It would help me with my map drawing skills that I already lack. Have any of you felt that you have improved since doing these?

The ancient tower of an undead wizard , thought to have been destroyed 100s of years ago has risen again.
What is worse is a giant hole in the ground across the river has opened and no one knows where it leads.
Some say to the pits of hell.


A 5 minute map sketch i did to practice lighting and topography.

Created in much less than five minutes
When I was a child I used to play with broken circuit boards and computer parts, using them as spaceships and cities. Yesterday I thought that pictures of PCBs can be used as great maps for the Bandits and Battlecruisers campaigns (and of course virtually any other sci-fi games).

The Caladane Complex - a small subterranian outpost.  This was done as a #FridayFiveMinuteMap   and was made with correction tape on the back of a black file folder.  I only had a medium marker handy at my desk, hence the chunky symbols and poor secret door markers :(

I was using the correction tape  for its intended purpose and figured it might make a nice negative-space corridor if used on a dark background....so here is the result!

Contrast was improved after the 5 minutes in Gimp, with the title, compass and hex grid rendered, courtesy of my hex grid script... http://registry.gimp.org/node/15852

The Resting Chamber of Zef'Ron Ek Bathar

Lots of contact poison, darts, false doors, moisture and humidity to promote stirge-roosting, and a mimic to attract dwarves by way of smell

The first sarcophagus has a ring of burdening and touching the lid summons a lesser efreet

The real sarcophagus is heavily cursed and if opened will subtly cause purple mold in the lungs to dissolve an unwary thief from the inside out

The Bathar family diverted a stream over the entrance tunnel and killed the workers, throwing their bodies into the pool below. The workers will arise and harass the party if the party approaches the torrent of water

The grate is of red steel - it looks rusty but is in fact metallurgically impervious to rusting
