A couple of micro-maps

Sorry if you see this a couple of times today. We’re moving my blog server, so this low-content post is going to test a few things for me.

I drew a couple of tiny maps today, stretching my wings after re-joining the Micro Maps group on Google+.

This is Jarl Gorvik’s Meadhall:

2014-10-15 09.24.05

It’s on an index card, in pencil. If you want to use this map, feel free. Here are some of the questions you should have your adventurers try to answer:

  • What’s upstairs?
  • What does the pentacle in the cellar do? Why is it behind a secret door?
  • Why are there so many tables in the meadhall, and so few people….?
  • Where is the Jarl, and why did no one greet you but his "learned advisor"?

Next up is the Cliff-Climber:

2014-10-15 09.53.37

This micro-map is on a post-it flag, stuck to the pen I used to draw it.

  • There’s a cave in the cliff near the path. What lives there? Why is it there?
  • Why is the bridge above the waterfall? What’s in the churning waters below?
  • Who built the bridge, and what toll do they extract when you cross it?

I hope you enjoy these maps, while I continue testing our server migration!
