View Full Version : Dwarven Stronghold Mansion

We don't seem to get enough dungeon, underground, cavernous challenges here, so I thought I'd make a request for one. Everybody appreciates dwarves to some degree, so lets show them some appreciation by creating an underground dwarven stronghold map. This could be a "city map" or an encounter scale section of stone halls, chambers, and cave passages.

Create a Dwarven stronghold mansion in a cavernous region of the Underdark. Combine natural cavernous features with worked stone, metal accoutrements like gates, doors, weapon platforms.

This could be a remote Dwarven clan outpost, part of an Underdark trading post or a major Dwarven Under City. Consider who might be the major local threat and place defense specifically for that threat...

Whoa! We got a Dwarf hater! One Nay - that's not good! :P


PS: I created this 3D image specifically for this post!

I like it!! Having seen Torstan's latest Iso cavern (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?t=5564)....well, it's going to take some beating!

The Dwarfs are a great distinctive culture but i look forward to seeing the different views on that :)

Make sure none of the doors are more than 3 feet high :P. That should keep out most of the intruders. Also, traps that affect only tall-folk.

I really like the idea. Dwarves a major part in nearly every fanatasy setting.

voted yes, in hopes that psyekl will grace us with his amazing talent with underground cavern maps.

My next campaign takes place in a dwarven city.. so I would actually find time to enter this one.
