[map] The Colossus of Angolomaigh

Created ages ago as a temple to a long forgotten god, this massive sculpture stands well over one hundred feet above the Fien Run River. Inside is a large complex with rooms for religious observance and running of the temple. The complete middle level is dedicated to mediation alongside the quickly flowing Stream of Dreams as it roars through the temple complex to spill out upon the Fien.
And of course, the black and white version for those real old schoolers:

[map] Sorbek's Redoubt

Sorbek, the hard boiled and mean leader of a glog of bandits, moved into this small cave system a decade ago claiming they would only rest here for a few days. His 'boys' as he is fond of calling the glog, can be found raiding all along the River Purgatory and its tributaries. They enter the cave system only at night through a tight and hidden crevasse, navigating  in near darkness the twisting underground waterways until a secret turn off which leads to the Redoubt. In a decade no one has been able to follow them and locate their base and thus operating with impunity.
Sorbek keeps his band small, only adding to the ranks for short term attacks and then releasing the new men (usually dead into the river). He and his small band have amassed quite a large amount of treasure and are planning to retire 'after just one more raid' that never seems to satiate their desires.

I had a request over on Reddit to add numbers to the map, so here you go! If you make anything really cool using this, let me know.

[map] King Tower

So in my random wanderings tonight I came across an image that inspired this map, mostly in the form of the dwarven tower. You can see the image that inspired this map here: http://leadpeople.blogspot.com/2010/05/old-school-maps-3.html

It never occurred to me previously but why are dwarves always deep below ground?  What if the dwarven king wanted to meet with the other races? Invite them into his kingdom? Nay! Meet them at his summer cottage!  ;-)

This is a small complex, perfect for a king and his immediate guard, the rest of his forces would camp below in the elements - they are tough fellas, right?

The complex has a private room for the king, a 'throne room' for really putting on a show when he needs to, a temple because you can never pray enough when in enemy lands, a ready room for the guards to hang out which is close to the front door and meeting room if needed, a 'grand' meeting hall, kitchen and barracks space for his guards. Also....the first time I can remember...I put a shitter in there.

When ya gotta go, ya gotta go, amirite?

[map] The Gaol of Kilmanhard

This secret jail serves the kingdom as a place to hide away a few of their most dangerous state criminals. The same trusted guards, said to have been hand selected by the king himself,  have provided security at the jail for the last decade. In the last two decades only a single prisoner has escaped, the notorious anti-state sympathizer Ante Devlin who later, as readers will no doubt remember, helped to form the militant group Devlin's Devils.

I've had this map floating around in my notebook and just came across it again today.

[map] The Tree Fort

Over on G+ yesterday I asked for some suggestions for maps and +Evan Edwards mentioned huge trees, "A tower without being yet another tower" or somesuch. I had a little time today in between some work and visiting with family that is staying with us this weekend.
And the black and white version:

[map] The Trenches

Today is the anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme and I wanted to do something a little in remembrance. While no where near accurate, the slaughter that would happen if one attempted to traverse No Man's Land in the middle is likely quite apparent.

In a single day more than 57,000 soldiers from the British Commonwealth were lost in the first offensive along. Over the course of the five month battle nearly 800,000 allied troops were lost. Think about that for a moment. Five months, 800,000 men gone.
