[map] Tinymorphs

I am working on maps for Inkwell Ideas's latest Kickstarter and in doing so I made some geomorphs that did not quite pass muster. I doubled the number to make a good number, and hopefully make them more useful, and decided to post here.

As these are smaller than the usual so-called standard geomorph, I dub these tinymorphs. I hope you enjoy them.

[map] Geomorphs strike back!

My buddy Joe Wetzel (Inkwell Ideas) is starting up a contest and as geomorphs were one of the ways I first burst on to the OSR mapping scene years ago I thought I would toss a little support his way and spread the word. I made a template (available here) so you can join in the fun and possibly win a set of Dungeonmorph Dice from Joe.


 Using my template I made a handful of geomorphs. Damn I love these things. If you use the template, be sure to let me know I would love to see anything you come up with.

Black and White (old school baby):

 You can learn more about the contest here: http://inkwellideas.com/2015/04/geomorph-map-contest-launches/

These geomorphs were released as one of my Patreon maps, if you like what you see you can help support my mapping habit for just quarters a month. For more information and to see tons more maps, visit my Patreon page here.

Geomorphs! And contests!

My buddy +Joe Wetzel has an unhealthy love of Geomorphs. Back around 2009 he helped fuel a love of geormorphs that spread like wildfire among most of the mappers on Google+ at the time and now he is back with another idea, this time a contest. The winner gets those wonder Dungeonmorph Dice.

Check it out over on his blog:
http://inkwellideas.com/2015/04/geomorph-map-contest-launches/

In an effort to help people out I thought I would make a template for those that wanted something to help jump start the creation process. Here you go, I look forward to seeing all the geomorphs people create!
UPDATED! Now with full 300dpi resolution and transparent background.

[map] The Port of Merdunn

I spotted some cool maps of a game that went down at GaryCon last weekend. The game was ran over a massive port set piece with tons of docks, planks, boats and all kinds of nonsense that just seemed to me to be itching to have a massive chase scene play across it. Yesterday I was struggling for some inspiration when it hit me that I should turn those photos into a map, below are the results.


And a black and white version.
