289 Sinav Cliff

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore Sinav Cliff is unlike any other settlement. The fact that makes it unique is the accepted presence of undead humanoid creatures among the population. For others, this travesty is the worst of horrors one could imagine. The mere thought of living among undead abominations makes the bravest fear of their lives. But this is a common and also unavoidable occurrence in Sinav Cliff. Sinav Cliff is located on the cliffs of the great Daedalus Mountain. The most prominent feature of the city is the colossal sculpted face on the mountainside. It depicts the visage of a skeletal face with a crown. People call the skeleton on the mountain Daedalus but scholars claim that the real name of the figure is a different one. The grandiose sculpture also features an abjuration spell that makes it impervious to the elements. Because…

288 The Fancy Lynx

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE There is an old saying that says that everybody has their own poison. In big cities, people are prone to vice and corruption; Glaham is not the exception. It is a cosmopolitan city, harboring people from various different races. This is a city that has a lively nightlife, from 24-hour inns to brothels and taverns, Glaham always has something to offer regardless of the time of the day. The Fancy Lynx is one of those establishments. It opens every day. Its owner, Gal Vadriz, is a business mastermind. He is a human who is not afraid of making big investments. The Fancy Lynx building was not popular at all a few years ago. Even though the building is huge and big enough to serve more than a hundred guests, its foundations hold a very uncomfortable secret. Many years past, there was…

287 Chapel of the Bountiful Harvest

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore A city, surrounded by rolling hills and farmlands, depends on the work of peasant workers and farmers to subsist through the winter. The closest large settlement is two weeks down the northern road. Too far to depend on them for supplies during the harsh winter. The city is “one ruined harvest” away from a catastrophe every year. It is also something that looms over the minds of many as the prospect of winter with food shortage is always close. It has happened before. Many times. Twice in recent memory, the lack of food has caused the death of scores of peasants. Starving in the cold season indoors is a frugal way to go. To remedy the situation, the cityfolk turned to faith in an attempt to balance the odds in their favor. The local church humored them. The priest,…

286 Mal Capital

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore Mal is a metropolis-size settlement by the Greenhue River. It has a population of twenty-five thousand people. Most of them of human heritage but a variety of other races are also represented in smaller proportions. The walls that surround the city are 30-feet-tall. the white bricks have earned the place several nicknames over generations but the city is widely known as Mal, the Capital. The walls form a geometric layout. Two concentric circles behind which layers of social strata hide from the outside world. A third wall-circle on the northwest end of the city houses the richest cityfolk in Jollyfen District. This is where Mal Palace is located; the home of Queen Galiana, the ruler of Mal. Queen Galiana d’Averus comes from an affluent family of royals which has ruled over Mal for the past eight generations. Before then,…

285 The Sage from Beyond

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore Saint Huber’s Island is a rather small patch of land in the middle of the open sea. In fact, it does not appear in most maps and most seafaring folks ignore its existence. Looking for this location in the sea is a herculean labor with terrible odds for finding it. A scholar or someone versed in the use of libraries and research will have an easier time finding references to this location. There are even old leather maps from earlier civilizations in the largest libraries. Only accessible to those willing to dive into the oldest tomes for days and days until the elusive references make themselves available. The name of the island has nothing to do with its past use. The original name is not known. The new name only follows a naming convention for small islands in the…

283 Cave Complex + PSD File (48×30 squares)

Hi there! Denizens of the Tower! I recently did this underground cave complex map. There is a shallow stream of spring water passing through the place. Someone has split the stream artificially to water a fungi farm. The rest of the complex features sparse details but it is clear that the place is a mining place of sorts. There are a few oil lamps, tools, wheelbarrows, etc. You’ll find the map pack here. It includes gridded, ungridded, labeled, and unlabeled versions of the map. B/W versions are also there if you want to print for cheap. The illustration is 48×30 and should upload fine to Roll20 and other VTTs. You’ll also find my source PSD file for the map too in a separate zip folder. Contrary to other releases, this one features no lore/adventure ideas. This release is set public to share with you and your friends. This is only…

282 New Hindell Ruins

DON’T FORGET TO VISIT OUR MAP INDEX AND OUR PATREON FUNDING PAGE Background Lore The Desert of a Hundred Suns is not a pleasant place to live in. Its overwhelming heat during the day makes it too hard for any living being to survive. Some creatures are born adapted to this kind of environment, such as scorpions, cold-blooded reptiles, and various sand critters. However, among the humanoid races, humans are the ones who have shown the most adaptability to this kind of weather. This is the case of Bismarck and the New Hindell Ruins, a human village built among the ruins of an ancient civilization, under the Desert of the Hundred Suns. Bismarck and his explorers fought against all odds and managed to settle in the everlasting heat of the desert. Their community has an odd schedule. They sleep through the day and work during the night hours to take advantage of the…
