Geomorphs in use….

   I had reduced the size of some tiles one day when I was playing around. I put them together into a larger map and really liked how it all came together. So I expanded my little experiment to see what I could do. I reduced the size of my geomorphs to 2″x2″ then pasted them all together onto a single map. Included are the first 6 geomorphs from set 1 along with some upcoming sets. This is a a big reason I’ll be moving away from putting doors on the edges of the geomorphs. I have to fiddle around with them way too much when I have those doors sticking out of the sides. I really do like the way these look. I’m planning on reducing all of my geomorphs to those standard little 2×2 blocks and making a bunch of full page random maps. Enough of my ramblings……enjoy.

Geomorph Set 1

    Here is the full set of my first 6 geomorphs in set 1. Feel free to download the PDF here.

Geomorph 6 (Set 1)

    Here is a new one with a large hallway supported by pillars, a few secret rooms, and a dead-end corridor with a portcullis trap, triggered by a pressure plate at the end of the corridor.

Geomorph 5 (Set 1)

     This is a another two level geomorph. Stairs in several locations all leading to the lower room, with an archway corridor under one of the upper rooms. In these first sets of tiles I’ve been putting doors on the outside edges. It is a practice I’ll be stopping as they are easier to cut out (in graphics software as well as print-outs)

Geomorph 4 (Set 1)

     Here is a large open room with stairs on either side that lead up to a balcony overlooking the room. There is an archway corridor that runs underneath the balcony, and a secret room under it as well.

Geomorph 3 (Set 1)

   Here is a geomorph consisting of some very basic rooms and corridors, along with a small set of caverns with a small pool of water. Looks like some mining action was going on. How long has the mining work been abandoned, and why….?

About this blog

    This blog came into being after I discovered the OSR blog scene. I was inspired by Dyson Logos and his blog, specifically his geomorph project. Check out his awesome work: "Dyson's Dodecahedron" The style and the simple elegance of his 10 x 10 squares put me on a mapping roll. I have blatently (...and respectfully) emulated his style and now have pages upon pages of geomorphs. Along with more location specific maps in that same style.

   My intent for this blog is for it to be more than just maps and geomorphs. However, for now, I'm just enjoying this burst of creativity inspired by Dyson and the entire OSR community.
