Al-Qadim ("Palace of the Twisted King" - Random Desert Encounter)
Hey all...Since my PCs are frequently roaming about the desert, I thought it would be cool to have some more complex random encounters for them while their making their way from city to city. I stumbled upon side-quest type encounter in Dungeon Magazine ("Palace of the Twisted King") that seemed to suit this purpose.
The plan is that they would seek shelter from a vicious sand storm in this ruined way station. However, the real terror for them begins that night as a group of "Meenlocks" torment them from their secret basement tunnels (I'll start working on that map next).
I made it with CC3 and the few objects in there are from the CSUAC. Comments, Criticisms, and Suggestions are welcomed. I'm still not 100% on the ruined walls - I was really having trouble conveying the crumbling of the walls (in retrospect, I wonder if I may have been better off trying to make this map in Photoshop).
wow that really looks great. I think the walls look fine the way they are.

Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
I think its really good, and I like your walls.
This looks great... Especially considering how simple the content actually is, it's not easy for pretty to shine through, and yet, you pulled it off...
I agree that the walls actually look nice... In fact, I am quite jealous of you. All these textures look great!
And the half buried objects are a really nice touch too...
