With the 105th Map of the Week we look at the covert Sawblade Ruin encampment of the evil Society of Immortal Darkness.

Sawblade was an sir thorp that fell into ruin at the end of the Great Wars. Today it is a mere shadow of its former self, standing isolated from the rest of the Royal County in Southwood Fortress near the northern border of Slovania. The few wooden buildings in Sawblade Ruin today serve the cult of the dark draug Msing in the ruins of Garndi's Crossing, in the fallen sir Empire to the north, who hopes to become a deity. The chief priest of Msing in Sawblade Ruin, the black necromancer Steindr, recruits evil Slovanian spellcasters as new priests of Msing. They receive their initial training in Sawblade Ruin.

Key to the map of Sawblade Ruin.

1. Black Temple. Training center for the Society of Immortal Darkness.

2. Orc Camp.

3. Watchtower.

4. Greenwood Creek.

5. Wood-Drying Shed.

6. Sawmill.

7. Woodshed.

8. House of Immortal Darkness. Dwelling of the human inhabitants of Sawblade Ruin. The draugs dwell in the light-shielded cellar.

9. Trail: Hrolfsthorp to Southwood Fortress.

You can get the map in two versions:

I really like this map, in particular the tents which have a pleasing hand-drawn quality. The overall colour scheme looks great and the scale feels right too. Good job Mark.

Greetings! The tent objects are from the Dundjinni forum.

Mark, you're the Fractal Mapper genius. This may be your best map of all (...or maybe only---yet?).
