Thread: Al-Qadim ("The Lost Oasis")

    Wip Al-Qadim ("The Lost Oasis")

    My players have requested that I incorporate a desert flavor into the campaign and since I'm pretty new to world creation, I decided to base this on 2nd edition Al-Qadim. I plan on constructing a bunch of maps for some of the pre-made adventures for this series until I get a better grasp on designing a desert campaign of my own. I thought a good place to start was "The Last Oasis" provided by Dungeon Magazine (Issue 51). Players are hired to escort a caravan and stumble upon the "Borderland" which is a spiritual way point between the living and the dead.

    This is a map of the Oasis which can be found in this "Borderland" region. I followed the basic map provided in the article pretty closely (but the original lacked detail, so I had to modify it a bit). Made with CC3 and most symbols should be available in CSUAC.

    Nice map.
    One possible comment, I think that a 'mosque' requires towers at the corners ... so add towers or rename to a more neutral term like 'temple'.

    [EDIT] OK, did a little fact checking. Towers are common but optional and tradition only requires one (for calling to prayer) ... so carry on.
