Or perhaps the inhabitants are amphibian (semi-aquatic) in nature.
    Oo... both ideas work.

Perhaps the original inhabitants had mined their way into a flooded chamber that released the aquatic horrors on them.

    Here's the rough draft for the junction chambers:
    That could work as well.

    I'm glad my maps were able to help you out, Arcana. The way my luck has been going lately, this bit of news made my day.
    Cheers,

    Since most of your smaller dungeon maps have two branches that aren't connected, I made one side a gnoll hideout, and the other is a passageway to a shadow crossing. Yay!

    What's a shadow crossing? Is that a school crossing for baby shadows? Just Kidding.

    I like to set up various factions in my dungeons that are often competing against each other. Throw the Player Characters into the mix and stir. Smart players will pick up on this and use it to their advantage.

    I was able to get some Photoshop time in and I took advantage of it to finish a dungeon that I started before my computer woes. Here's the full colour version:

    And here is a printer-friendly, black & white version:

    I really can't wait to get my new computer. I have so much work to catch up on.

    So am I. Hopefully I will be back in the swing of things by next weekend (fingers and toes are crossed for luck).

    Well, I've been impressed. Great maps and great designs! The PDF format is really well done, too.

    My wife was kind enough to let me use her computer so I could get some mapping done. I think she could see I was getting fidgety from my Photoshop withdraw. I did a quick and simple dungeon. I've included the colour version and the printer-friendly version.
