The Hall of Orrin Darkshroud….

     Above the forest of Merewood, rises a single mountain, the rocky rugged slopes of Raven’s Roost.  A path snakes its way up the mountain, winding its way through the steep cliffs and jagged outcrops ending at a large ledge overlooking Merewood. It is here that the Sorcerer Orrin Darkshroud carved out his fortress, a refuge from his dark past. Over the years, strange phantasms and screams of the damned emanated from the lofty hights of his fortress. Last year however the fortress became silent, a dark, menacing presence high above the forest of Merewood.

    Here is a new map I drew the other day, I feel that the cliffs (IE: the shading I did) kind of got away from me in the process. Just doesn’t quite feel very balanced to me.  I also drew this one with no graph paper, trying to be a little looser in style.  Anyway, for the most part its alright, so I am posting it here for your enjoyment.  Click on the image for a full page PDF.

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.
