    Thanks. I'll come back to this personal project once I get the commissions and freelance work out of the way. I have many of these that will need to be made for my own gaming needs.

    Devin, I hope you don't mind if I nip these for personal use with my ftf group (ie, no intent to repost anywhere.). I am running a campaign that is starting out in a post disaster scenario (wars, plague, pestilence, and all manner of magic destruction) set underground with the PC's living with a number of refugees in a Dwarven city. It's about 1000 years after the exile event, the large main exit has been collapsed to prevent hordes of monsters following into the city proper(which is a several miles from the gate), and it's about time for them to begin trying to find their way to the surface. These sets of maps will come in handy as reference material when they are ready to figure out how to get out(or more importantly, get other people out).

    I don't mind at all, thanks for letting me know. I'd like to say that I could have more on the way.. but I'm probably a month away from getting back to working on these and posting more of them.

    Thanks! No sweat on the additional maps(though I love these and am giddy with anticipation after viewing these several months ago), we only get to play once a month(and there are two campaigns going, mine and a different GM's) and they are about to finish up a quest and have 2 major branching points of locations they have discovered so far and neither of those will lead directly to the exit into the outer world. They are just hitting 3rd-4th level and more than likely won't get to this section until 8-10 or higher which will be months or perhaps a year or more down the road.

    FYI, I will more than likely use some of the tokens you made available to the Maptool for use in the distro over the life time of my campaign. Thanks a bunch for them... I had bought a few packs last year, and they were well worth it.

    Thanks Elothan, I'm glad you like them. The second one isn't even done yet.

    jfrazierjr, I'm working on more tokens but mostly custom orders right now.. I had planned on doing many more but got sidetracked into more mapping. But tokens are are my list as an ongoing until I can't lift a pencil type project. I'm sure I will have some dwarf centric and northern climate tokens later this year if not sooner.

    Those are pretty dern shape, Devin. Definitely looking forward to seeing more, and, as a side note, I'm taken back to the days of 2nd Edition AD&D, when TSR published the Campaign and Catacomb source book. One of the samples they had was a cave system that was similar to what you're doing, and it was always my favorite of all the samples in the manual.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.

    Awesome!!!! This thread finally motivated me to do a bit of mapping of my underground region more than just plopping a few dots down and calling it done(though in all honesty, doing that might have been best to avoid my ADD burn out and a yet another half completed project..lol). Anyway, check out my WIP if you want.

    Incredible. No, not grand enough. Let's go with... stunning! I would love to see the overheads for these. Wow! I only wish that I had talent like this!
