Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. The Guild has many maps of dungeons and megadungeons, nearly all imaginary, but here is a link to the real thing: http://www.catacombs.explographies.com/

A French urban exploration group put up a page with a whole bunch of maps of the Paris catacombs. Although not directly rpg related, I find the maps highly inspiring and wouldn't be surprised if similar structures cropped up underneath my campaign's cities ;) Enjoy.

Awesome.

Moscow has some great tunnels, too ... laid out over centuries and nobody's ever mapped them completely. A few years ago, there were some great stories running about a group of teenagers that apparently had the most complete maps of them from exploring them personally, and the government's efforts to win over the kids' cooperation in getting a complete picture ...

That really is cool. I wonder what symbol they use for secret doors?

When I look at those maps, they make me want to run a Call of Cthulhu adventure set in them. :lol:
