    Link Maps of the Paris Catacombs.....

    Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. The Guild has many maps of dungeons and megadungeons, nearly all imaginary, but here is a link to the real thing: http://www.catacombs.explographies.com/

    A French urban exploration group put up a page with a whole bunch of maps of the Paris catacombs. Although not directly rpg related, I find the maps highly inspiring and wouldn't be surprised if similar structures cropped up underneath my campaign's cities Enjoy.

    Awesome.

    Moscow has some great tunnels, too ... laid out over centuries and nobody's ever mapped them completely. A few years ago, there were some great stories running about a group of teenagers that apparently had the most complete maps of them from exploring them personally, and the government's efforts to win over the kids' cooperation in getting a complete picture ...

    That really is cool. I wonder what symbol they use for secret doors?

    When I look at those maps, they make me want to run a Call of Cthulhu adventure set in them.
