    Post Under Ground

    This is an underground Kobold hideout I am working on. The area is under the ruins of an old outpost. The caverns were added by the kobold that took over the ruins. I am planning on adding some traps but i am not sure about adding doors. Some of those paths will be true safe paths others will be trapped extensively.

    I am also going to have a very young green dragon living in the main cavern that they worship. The dragon uses the pool as an exit into an under ground stream that comes out a couple hundred yards away.

    Cool concept and shape to the place.

    I like all of the textures individually, but all together they're overloading my eyes a bit. Maybe tone down the texture of the dirt a bit to break them up a little?

    I think you might need a grid but I'm no VTT user type guy. I don't see anything that I'd change or add, shrug.

    First lovely work.

    Some thoughts for your consideration -

    1) The upper right doorway has a very thin section of wall blocking it.

    2) The cave section/wall section boundaries - perhaps add more mud spilling in and stones spilling out?

    3) The walls seem to rise equally high above the floor on one side and the rock matrix on the other. Perhaps making the rock matrix seem closer in height to the wall would be desirable by using different shading for the wall/floor boundary vs. the wall/rock matrix boundary.

    Here are a few changes to the map plus the above ground entrance.

    1) The upper right doorway has a very thin section of wall blocking it.
    This is intended to be a secret entrance i am still trying to figure out how to make it right.

    So their is still work to be done but tell me what you think.
    (I know i still need a grid on it and I keep forgetting to add one.)

    hmm theres something about the shading on the stairs in the top one which looks off. I couldn't tell at first which direction they were going. The second one from the bottom shouldn't be lighter than the two it is between.

    Also, why do the kobolds need four tunnels going to the same place? I would have thought 2 would be enough?
