    Thanks for the comments and rep. Since you liked those I'll post another one that was done exclusively with CC2. Usually I use PSP to touch up my maps and make modifications, but not with this one. The entrance is down a pole through the hole in the ceiling of area 1. The spiral stairs (7) leads down to area 8. 11c is a large sarcophagus; everything else should be easy to figure out. This map and Dungeon 7 conform to the "One Page Dungeon" format (300'x300') for those familiar with it.

    I don't normally post maps that I plan to use in my games until they have been explored, but I wanted to give an example of a work in progress with notes that I hide in the finished versions. I intend to expand the map to the west of the large cavern with a dungeon complex but haven't decided on its size or number of levels.

    This is how the map looks after some minor PSP modifications (printer friendly & screen saver versions):

    Good stuff, I like your colors and your caverns seem quite natural and not man-made.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    Glad to hear someone else likes my caverns; I used to be horrible at creating realistic caverns when I mapped with pen and paper despite the fact that I can draw fairly well.

    Here is a map I wasn't going to share because I wasn't satisfied by the way it turned out, but since it is the second level of Map #3 (post #7) I decided to show it. The first map is the entire layout and the second is a closeup view of areas 33 & 34 with a partial symbol key.

    Map #4 Notes:
    • The spiral stairs in area 13 (on map #3) goes down to area 1 on this map. Also, the light green pentagram in area 13 (Map #3) is a teleporter to area 45.
    • The areas are color coded by depth and the semi-transparent sections (33-34) are beneath the "normal" colored areas.
    • 56d is a gate that transports entrants to 57.
    • 23 a-d are luminescent "windows" similar in opacity to stained glass - these serve to illuminate areas 22 & 24.

    Post Dungeon 7

    The following map I started at the beginning of the month and recently finished after starting a few other mapping projects.

    Notes:
    • The ladder at 22b leads up to the diagonal passage.
    • Area 28 is 30' lower than the connecting areas and is filled with water and an assortment of flesh-eating critters. There is a rusting ladder at the east door.
    • A lower level can be accessed via the spiral stairs in area 33 or through the narrow door about half-way down the pit shaft in area 26.

    Post Dungeon #10

    Latest map with and without labels:


    (I have not posted Dungeon #9 because it is much larger and is not finished, yet.)

    You also seem to have skipped #8.

    Oh, oh! Someone's paying attention! Actually, I didn't skip #8; it is the large (unfinished) cavern map in post #12 & 13. I did add the dungeon extension to the left of the large cavern as planned but I haven't decided if I like it yet.
