    Default Random Battlemaps

    So I decided to just to fool around in GIMP making a battlemap trying things out and practicing some concepts and I came up with this. Thinking of creating a thread that I dump random battlemaps into as a I make as distractions or for fun as I work on them. I have to admit this one is looking ridiculously good. I'm gonna have a hard time topping it. Frozen Elemental Mote in the Elemental Chaos for D&D 4e, the well on the north of the map is the portal in to the cave, it's a one way street until the encounter is over. Middle of larger areas is more icy then the snow on the edges which make it slippy terrain. Moving more then 3 squares or 15 feet forces an acrobatics check fail and go prone. Enjoy!

    After fooling around and making some adjustments I got this result, I think this one is done. As I've said this is inside a frozen elemental mote in the Elemental Chaos for D&D 4e. One version has bones frozen bellow the surface other does not. Gonna keep working and testing things out over time with battlemaps. I'll post them in the finished maps section after I get a dozen or so as a map pack or something. Let me know what you think.

    And of course I'm going with the frozen bones version.

    I didn't know orcs found their way into the Elemental Chaos and frozen within a mote. But if you find me some detailed enough png's with orc bodies or laying down or something like that with no background I can easily do it for you.

    You'd be surprised where Orc's show up... great job !!

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Threw this together today, on in off for the last 5 hrs. Need to make mummified bodies for the shelves then I'm done this one. Can definitely see huge improvement from my first terribad maps. I've been fooling around a lot on layer modes. I love overlay. Let me know if there is anything I can improve on.

    So I think this one is done as well. Again anything wrong/missing let me know. Included the objects I created for the mummified remains in .png's in a .zip one is modded and other three I made. This is a "Family Burial Crypt" like all my maps I make for 4e but this one is easily usable in other RPG's or editions. Enjoy!

    Threw this together for you Avengeil. If it not what you're looking for I can toss you my .xcf and all you would need to do is add the objects of the orcs on a simple white layer and set it's transparency to 50% and mode to overlay. Let me know.

    Here's the final version of the Family Crypt. Added webbing to some of the bodies and deconstructed some to add diversity. Also added braziers which I cheaped out and didn't do myself. Enjoy!
