…..Friday’s “Mystery Meat”…..Leftovers Edition!

     Welcome to another edition of Friday’s “Mystery Meat”…..the Leftovers Edition. I am reposting the vertical geomorphs from yesterday, re-scanned for better quality, plus as an added a bonus one brand spanking new one. All for that everyday low price of whatever the hell you pay each month for your internet connection!! For some reason I see these vertical geomorphs in a whimiscal light, maybe because of various cartoons and some ads I used to see in various RPG publications. I seem to remember some side view dungeon images of a comical nature back in the day. Wish I had some exmples of what I mean. (If anyone has anything like that, please send me an image or link). Anyway that is how I have been approaching these things. Drawing in all the little details, gives these a slight cartoon feel and I am enjoying the results thus far. Hope you kids like em…!!!!

       Vertical-Geomorph 1 (Set-1)  This one has at the top a large 2 level room with an open stairway, halfway down the steps is a balcony that overlooks the lower level with a ledge and archway that leads to “where ever”…?? Continuing down the steps leads to  the lower open level. A secret door opens to a spiked pit trap, above which, there trap door that is reached by the ladder. There is another trap that drops the un-wary into a pit filled with water/acid/chocolate pudding…(what ever:). There is also a chamber with some coffins and a secret room with a treasure chest. Fun Times!

     Vertical-Geomorph 2 (Set-1)  This one has a door leading to a deep vertical shaft filled with water, a secret door at the bottom leads somewhere else. There is a statue in the lower room that, when properly triggered, slides forward reavealing a hidden stairway. There is also yet another secret door behind the statue. Fun Times 2!!

     Vertical-Geomorph 3 (Set-1)  This is my favorite so far. Here we have a large open cavern with a whole lot of (construction?) going on. Ramshackle wooden platforms at various levels with a large (working?) crane. A secret passageway leads to a long ladder into the depths. Wooden you like to have some fun!!!

     Vertical-Geomorph 4 (Set-1)  This one has a large cavern with a narrow stone bridge spanning a large chasm. At the bottom of the chasm is a secret passeway leading into the underworld. Getting into running battles on a narrow bridge and falling down Fun!!!!

    Love them. I can’t imagine trying to cram that much detail into mine. The wood one is particularly awesome.

    You might be thinking of the stuff from Grimtooth: Most of the time when a diagram was required it would be a side view.

    That last one is great as well. I love the little added effects such as the extra black on the stalactites, just adds the right depth to it.

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.
