    Post Undead wizards guild

    This is an underground complex, under an elven ruin.

    * The first map is actually the organigram of the complex, wich shows the connexions between different areas.

    * The second is the entrance... From the blue braseros, electrical lightnings spark and deal damage... It could be desactivated by resolving a jigsaw.

    * The third is a hall. The southern part contains 3 squares full with bones from wich necromancers can animate minor undeads. On the nothern part, a pool of toxic water prevents some move... Underwater roam an Ulgurstratae.
    Finally, the pentacle can be used as a summon circle

    *the 4th map detailled a library and another toxic pool. On the other side of the pool stand some etheral wizards wich can blast at adventurers.

    In game terms, the exploration of the complexe helds 8 players (level from 9th to 12th) during several game session...
    Dungeon crawl rules

    Next time, the rest of the complexe (a death knight rest, some laboratory experiment, a classroom and a guild master chamber...)

    And finally, a kinda nightmare "bones' boss"...

    As usually, I choosed to left the floor blank to manage the cartridges and for clarity of play...

    C&C welcomed...

    Enjoy...

    I really like the maps as a whole, but I have a hard time NOT being distracted by the white underlay with the grids. Any chance of coming up with one or more textures to flesh this out instead of the plain white?

    I agree with JFJr... nice maps, but a background would definitely help. Even if just for display purposes.

    I like it, I can add my own floor this way and save ink as well. Sure, for display you might want to put a floor in there (for future reference) and just put up two versions...floor and no floor.

    So, as you asked...
    I redo with some floor and surely add some details like dust or cracks...
    See you soon

    It's a lovely map, but I have to agree that it would be better with a floor because the white is very off putting.

    I vote for no floor. Post it as a transparent png and all these nay-sayers will be happy.

    Having a floor tile is useful for me because I don't really have anything suitable to use otherwise.
