    Ok, here's a little challenge I set myself (and failed) - make a dungeon vaguely (very vaguely) inspired by an album. Anyway, here it is:

    Comments welcome.

    (new version with fixed typo - another 5-10 minutes.)

    Well ... it's Saturday and winter seems to have arrived. Yesterday I ended up driving through a light snowfall in summer tyres, which was great fun. Now I might get through my next dungeon ... I'm practicing the perspective thing again, but a bit more involved and based on Deep Purple.

    I got to it later than expected ... and barely in time for the sept/oct lite challenge. 20 minutes to spare, I think. Anyway, here it is again:

    Basically, while listening to Deep Purple I had the weird idea ... what would a dungeon excavated inside a petrified gargantuan purple worm look like? So I started work on it in illustrator ... but then fell back on my manual drawing skills.

    Also: how do I thumbnail the same image twice? I feel silly uploading them twice ...

    Thanks I hope to have a chance to spring it on some players this week, or maybe next week ... they're probably to lazy to check my blog, so they won't know what's waiting for them .

    Edit: they weren't too lazy to check. O.O

    My next little project ... a multi-level perspective "dungeon" map based on this, as yet unfinished, bit of castlebuilding based on a few pencil sketches:

    Likelihood of finishing: I have no frikkin' idea!

    Purpley Worm Death. Back in the late 70s I put my players through what today would be described as a Gargantuan Scorpion that was still alive, but no threat to the players. Think germs upon any of us.

    that sounds perfect. Players should be made to remember they're germs, compared to the DM!

    These are fantastic, Lukc! The purple worm is stupendous! How do you go about drawing something like that?

    The Purple Worm is awesome. Makes me want to break out the old AD&D books.
