Thread: First Map - Necromancer's Lair

    Wip First Map - Necromancer's Lair

    My very first map!

    I'm new to map-making, and I thought I'd post my first attempt... really just for giggles. I probably won't do anything else to this. My tool of choice is CC3+DD3 with the first two Symbol Sets.

    Yes, I realize it's way too busy for any practical use as I was just experimenting/playing.

    I really like it! You should put it in as an entry to this month's competition and build some more floors. Not too keen on the repeating tile of the floor though...but the rest looks really nifty...nice symbols!

    Cool. Now play with them sheet effects to get some glows, shadows, etc on that map and bring it to the next level.

    And, yeah, enter it in the challenge!

    Like U I just start working with dd3 (since Christmas),
    so yeah good looking map. With some layer effect it will be great.

    But in my opinion, you should thicken your walls. Right now, with the size of the creature in the map, it looks like the necro build up 1-3'' think stone walls that can be broken with one or two good shots. Try to put a 1'+ thick wall instead.

    Hope to see the result soon,
    Let my fangs find your neck, during the night, so that I can drink your knowledge ...

    So it could be use here :

    Wow! Thanks for all of the positive feedback. I really didn't intend to do anything else with this map (it was just my first attempt at figuring out how CC3 works), but maybe I will go back and clean it up now.
