    Preliminary map.

    The room on the right side of the cave entrance will have arrow slots connecting it to the cave.

    Left: guard room, quarters and armory for the guards, upper two probably dining and kitchen.

    Might put a pit, unknown the the former inhabitants on the right, along with additional rooms nearby.

    Wasn't feeling well on Monday. I'll be working on a deep cave for the right side of this map before I work more on the rooms.

    No tile walls on these rooms and corridors.

    I think the cave needs more work, but here is the map so far.

    Magic room upper left. Torture of orcs room upper right.

    Thin lines from room to right of cave to cave are supposed to be 1 foot wide tubes or slots for arrow firing, or crossbow bolts.

    Cob webs for thegiant spider.

    Debris blocking access to the secret door. An often replaced torch in the same room.

    Why orcs in particular? The torture room, I mean.

    Looking good, Jim :)

    Quenten suggested a torture room, and I figured orcs would be good for that being done to them by the dwarves.

    Room numbers added.

    Magic in room 12 ? Is this what brought the outpost to ruin ? Why is it hidden behind several secret doors ?

    Might go with a second level. What do you think ?

    My guess is a secret necromancers behind the secret doors, who secretly perform experiments on the population, which caused their downfall.

    I like the goblin trampolines in Cave 1! Not sure about the dragon dung piles in Room 2 though (at least they're well-lit)...
    • CommentAuthorJimP
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2019 edited
     
    Trampolines ? Now, thats a thought.

    I think I'll go with Wyvern's descriptions for 1 and 2. Remy, I like the hidden necromancer idea as well.

    edit:

    Looking at adding additional rooms above, for the necromancer. Along with access to the pit so he can toss captives into it.

    Ground level and Necromancer's level up above.

    Not sure if rooms 9 and 10 will be for the dwarves or the necromancer.

    Ground level: Necro 11, 12, and 13.

    Upper level.

    2 rooms and the cave.

    1 and 3 is the bad guy's living and secondary torture areas. And 2 is the cave.

    I really like this wall texture a lot better than the tiles you used last time. It looks a lot more... "wallish" to me :)

    Is this lake a single huge cavern that's really tall? I'm trying to understand why it appears in all the levels.

    It starts at the upper level and goes down around 100 feet. The dwarves don't know it's there.

    All very tidy maps again, Jim :)

    I can't see anything wrong with any of them to nit pic, but I've just run the text through my spellchecker for you and picked out a word I can't figure out. It's surrounded by 6 asterixis at the end of point 12

    Vale Watch Area map.

    A few hills, even fewer trees, a dry land.

    The Paragaino River is off the map to the north side and east side of this map.

    The only civilization here was the Vale Watch cave fort.

    There are occasional birds, some animals large and small, but no dwarves, humans, nor humanoids. On rare occasions the adventurers might spot a group off in the distance. When they get there, no tracks, no signs that any one was actually there.

    = = = = =

    I'll be submitting in a few seconds. The above blurb is for the area map.
