Photo: Here's a little dungeon map that I created a few weeks back that I thought I'd share...Photo: Here's another dungeon map that I created for a one-off game that a few guys ran at the local RPG club.

There's also a sci-fi version of the same layout - as the adventure was run for 4 different groups (at the same time), with 4 different genres, with the occasional player being teleported from one game to another ...for added craziness). However, I'm less happy with that version of the map - but if folks want me to upload it as well, just let me know :)Photo: Now that the shameless plug of my last entry is out of the way, I thought I'd share something that I've been working on over the weekend...

It's my attempt at a seamless/repeating forest tile (done in the same style as my recent 'Into the Wilderness' map-packs) that can be loaded into your VTT of choice to create a huge forested area in a matter of seconds.

The image itself is 1000x1000 pixels (with each grid square measuring 50x50), and if you load it into something like +Tabletop Forge  (with the 'tile image' option selected), it should fill your entire map window with a near-seamless forest texture.

It's not as perfect as I would like, but I kinda like the way it has turned out.Photo: I found this languishing on my hard drive today, and so I thought I'd share it :) (though I did spend a little time tidying it up to make it a bit more presentable).

Hmmm... now I have the urge to create a few more of these.Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: The other day, I posted a quick picture to show off some of the maps I've been working on recently (it should be the post beneath this one in my profile if you missed it).

Anyway, when I'm working on a project like that, I sometimes end up with a few maps that I either reject (because I'm not 100% happy with them), or a map that I decide to expand upon (or modify quite drastically) to better suit my needs.

This time around, it's the stairway map that has fallen into this category - and rather than have the original map languish in a little 'reject' folder on my computer, I thought I'd share it here - just in case it is of use to anyone :)Photo: A little dungeon entrance...Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: Photo: +STEPHEN Yendle has just submitted a scenario to the ageofshadow.wikidot.com ...and so I thought I would draw up a quick map (depicting a small part of the sewer system) to go along with it :)Photo: Another quick sewer map...Photo: +Joseph Moskie asked if I could draw a sewer piece with a stairway to complement the two maps I created yesterday ...and so here it is:Photo: Here's a copy of yesterday's #TAADAD map without any labels...Photo: In the Age of Shadow setting, there is an old ruined city that was devastated by a nearby volcano -  much like Pompeii & Herculaneum (though some superstitious folk attribute it to a host of demons bursting from the mountain top).

Since then, the place is rumoured to have become the haunt of 'fell spirits and unwholesome beasts' ...and is thus ripe for adventure :)

So, I'm thinking of drawing a map that depicts a section of the city ...and today I've been working on a small prototype in an attempt to try and get a suitable 'ruined buildings amid an ashen wasteland' look.

Anyway, I'm not sure if I've mastered it yet, but I think I'm getting there - so here's a look at what I've got so far (and yeah, drawing the walls on a much larger map is going to be a bit labour intensive :S ).
