    Post Deserted Mines

    So in homage to the new edition of D&D I am putting together an adventure for my group using 4e. I thought we'd keep the first one simple so I fell back on the old disused mine full of goblins. A short while after deciding that and I have a series of map layouts. As with the other ones I've put up today, these are really rough (with the first being the roughest of all).

    Entrance to the mines:

    watch out on those goblins ... that party from Wolfdell.... my first 4e TPK .... and it was goblins ... and it was the standard lvl 3 encounter... but I admit they had some bad rolls that night ... and I had some exceptional rolls.... so much in fact that if I had fudged anymore it would have been obvious that I was going to considerable lengths to keep them alive... but they had fun.. I had fun... and that's what its all about ..

    I'm not sure what that first map is... but the other two look good... Scale.... would be nice

    Yep. I admit that first one is a bit of a 'note to self...' map rather than something anyone else could understand. all will become clear in time.

    These ones have a scale - 1 square=5'

    Okay, so I have the next instalment in my 4e game this evening so I am trying to get some maps out for it. Here's the mine entrance in line form:

    It is amazing how you can take something that I have NO CLUE what it is in a sketch and turn it into such an incredible piece of art... Looking forward to how this comes out.

    Well, I changed the layout a lot from the sketch as a few things didn't really fit together. I'm having to change the mine layour as well. The lines for that will be posted next.

    Right, some basic lines for the inside of the mines. This is going to be a very basic set of maps tonight as I really have no time to colour these.

    ... and here's the lower level - accessed through a hole in the 'throne room' floor. It'll be more obvious when it's a little further along.

    Groovy. I've been needing some raw dungeon maps to test out some of my revised dungeon-ink playground routines in Photoshop, so I snagged your first level to see how it would come out (since I hadn't really tested the routine on lines quite like these yet). Came out kinda nice! If it wouldn't be rude to do so, let me know and I'll post it here for your amusement.
