    Post Caverns of the Deepening Doom

    Here is my final. I did this as an experiment in styles and techniques. I am thankfull to everyone who helped out with a critique or suggestion in the WIP thread.

    It is a fairly generic map for gaming. The names and titles on the map now are hopefully thought provoking and imaginative enough that the dungeon masters who run this in their game can flesh it out with fun and exciting encounters that fit within the bounds of their worlds.

    Most slickiest of cave maps and quite professional in flavor. Yes, I made up that word.

    Fantastic map. Looks like one heck of an adventure.

    Very nice! I like the use of the crosshatching and overall colours/textures. Have some well deserved rep.
    Cheers,

    This is sweet. A very DM friendly, and perfectly useable map. Your place names are provoking. I had a few ideas for an adventure as I was reading through them, and the room details only help futher the imagination. I think you've done a huge chunk of the DMs work for him with this. I also love the terrain in areas 4, 8, 9/10 and eleven. I can see some interesting battles being fought In them, each different from the other!

    Anything with aquatic goblins deserves rep. 675 XP.

    This would be a great map for a game. I don't suppose you'd be willing to post an unlabeled version for the vtt crowd? Also, I don't know if you've thought about the license for your stuff - I know a few of us use CC licensing for our non-commercial maps. It helps keep things clear for people who want to use stuff on here for their games. That means if someone uses one of my maps for a game and posts an in game screenshot of the map on a forum they know it's fine.
