[map] The Split Goose

I'm about to head out for a week to visit our capital and see our daughter but I want to pass along one last parting map. I made this in about five minutes at work yesterday while waiting for a meeting to get started. I cleaned it up slightly last night, figured I would post it here.

This small pub is tucked away in the Market District in Bethmoora and, though small and often crowded, is a well known watering hole for those looking for a commission into the Pit.

Encounter map - The Gorge

Thought you might enjoy a work in progress shot.

The shot above was taken as I was working on the latest map for Patreon tonight. If you dig the map and would like to see more, please check out my Patreon page. Almost all maps are posted with a handful of variations.

The Environs of Bethmoora

I wanted a map of the lands immediately surrounding Bethmoora, I feel this helps ground the location for players, or at least for me. Not exactly happy with it (am I ever) as I played around with the perspective a little, the Pit, Ghorl Nigral, looked a little weird the way I drew it on paper, so I redid it digitally and well, it looks weird. Oh well.
All I can say right now is the area between Ghorl Nigral and Arvale - the Frozen Steppes - The Great White Apes roam this region, hunting packs to fill their bellies.

Yes, those White apes.

The Broken Ruins of Mythgrot

I was in a meeting, got bored, and drew a map when no one was looking. This is the result.

Uthgar, the giant bow shooting goblin makes his home in the Broken Ruins of Mythgrot. He is a sad, foul creature who does not appreciate company, even those bearing gifts.

Uthgar, giant asshole goblin
Hit Dice: 6
No. of Attacks: 1 massive bow/1 bite
Damage: 2d6/1d10
Movement: 40’
No. Appearing: 1
Save As: Fighter: 6
Morale: 10
Treasure Type: Odds and ends in the ruins (roll a d6, on a 1 the party can find just about anything they are looking for...Uthgar is somewhat of a packrat), one magical Bow of Pinning (over ten feet tall) and 47 gold
XP: 550

Uthgar is an unhappy asshole and generally is annoyed by anything that smells better than he. At the first whiff of anyone near his home he will sneak out and attempt to strike them with his bow. If a a pretty little elf is in the group he can smell them at four times the normal range.

Due to the height of the ruins, he will strike without warning from afar, only on a 1 in 6 will anyone - even the fucking elf - notice him climbing atop the tower to ready his attack. This magical bow can reach twice as far as a normal bow and anytime he rolls five or more than the target's AC he pins the target to the ground with the giant, five foot long arrows. Targets may spend two turns freeing themselves from the pinned arrow, each round suffering an additional d4 of damage.

If he manages to slay an elf and appears to be losing the battle, he will grab the elf's body and make a run for it. With his height and great stride he will easily outrun all characters. If the party is determined to track him down, they will find him 3d6 miles away, sitting around a large fire and eating a hearty dinner of roast elf.
