View Full Version : Crypt of the Vampiress

Just experimenting at this stage, though I do think this chamber will be the main chamber of my next attempt at the I.C.E. Crypt Map Contest: the Crypt of the Vampiress.

I'll change the walls, add more contours and structures. And more catacombs than just this chamber. Got to start somewhere...

I won with a fairly realistic map last time, so why not try it in similar fashion.

Neat stuff as always GP!

As always, "Thanks!" SG.

Next chamber I will be working on is a treasury chamber with a lantern as a source of light and a demonic presence that will be invisible, yet casting a shadow from the light source - winged demon, I think.

Will also be adding a chamber of minion sarcophagi, dug up graves, bone pile and a few other creepy ideas...

Might want a NSFW tag there in the Thread Header....just in case ;)

I might try to fix some of that nudity, by the next image - I already fixed the nude dead guy, didn't want to look at that, myself!! I plan to place a sword in the hands of sarcophagus lid statue, to cover "things" up...

OK, I mean we are all adults 'here' but never know where someone 'might' be when they open an image, and some places are pretty strict with that stuff "OMG A NIPPLE!"

Looking good so far. Should be a fun contest.

LOL I seriously don't think that anyone could call that pornographic.

True, I wouldn't. I just remember the debate when we had the map with the Mermaid Cartouche.

Chamber of the Eye of Vampyr, the unholy Blood Jewel the strength of immortal Blood Goddess herself, is believed by Katyana (the vampiress) to enhance her seductive and mind control talents among living males.

No walls yet, I create those later, once I get all my different rooms created. I'm creating as I go, no real plan, just loose creepy ideas.

No nudity this time... :P

WIP so far...

Since I do have so many projects to do, and I did want to compete again in the I.C.E. contest, I decided to knock this out tonight and call it finished. Only things left to do is to place the required Hex Grid (1" = 3'), then slice this up into a multi-page PDF, then I'll submit the entry to Iron Crown...

As always (or at least as last time) this map is huge, measuring 30" x 42". The JPG file is saved at medium resolution at 100 ppi and it's still 1.90 MB in size. Before optimizing it, this file was 32 MB in size!

Welcome to the Crypt of Katyana - Vampyr...


PS: the non-guild member who entered in the last I.C.E. contest chose to add a cover design and a write-up along with his map. I think I'll do the same before my final entry.
