I like this map because you can use the staircase at the bottom of the map either way. It could be used as an exit from the cave into a dungeon or another level, but it also could be the way the PCs get into the cave. And then, imagine their surprise, when they exit the cave, and blinking in the sunlight, they find themselves….
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here, and it’s unclear when I will be back to posting things on a regular basis. In the meantime, I’d like to introduce a new feature on the blog – Mini Map Monday. I’ve long been a fan of hand-drawn maps like the ones at Dyson’s Dodecahedron (and others), and have lately been playing around with drawing maps of my own. I’ve decided to scan and post these mini maps once a week for anyone who might like to use them. There will be little commentary, if any, and they are free to use for non-commercial purposes. Have fun!

I’m currently working on a guest post for Stuffer Shack (still to come!) so I thought I would have Bogie do another one page map guest post for us. Enjoy!
Chamber of Secrets
This is a secret and very well hidden room where inquisitions are conducted in private. It is deep underground and can only be reached by a teleport gate. After speaking an activation phrase and touching the correct spots on an ancient arch, the gate activates and will transport anyone between the gate and the torture chamber. Few go there willingly, even less return. Continue reading
I’m out of town on business this week, so I’ve asked Bogie, of the Dundjinni forums, to fill in for me. I was excited when he agreed, because every map I’ve seen of his is stunning. Below is a beautiful “one page” map for you to use in your game. It’s not actually one page, but based upon the poll I took last time, most of you won’t mind a little cutting and taping for this map. He also made a true one page encounter map for us that I will be presenting in the future. I hope you enjoy this map, and if you want to see more of his work, you can mosey on over to the forums.

Well, the last one page encounter map was a rousing success, and I didn’t have time to finish what I was planning on doing this week… so here’s another one page encounter map!
But first, I’d like to take a quick poll. I’m wondering how much cutting and assembling people are willing to do for a print at home map. In other words, if I started making maps that you print out on two pages, cut one border off, and tape together, would you find that as useful? What about a four sheet map? Vote below.
