The Hidden Tomb of Slaggoth the Necromancer…

     The long lost Tomb of the evil necromancer Slaggoth, is buried deep with in a cavern complex. The caves have become the home of a trio of ogres and their band of goblin henchmen. The goblins guard the entrance by watching through a small crack in the rock above the entrance, alerting the other goblins when anyone approaches the entrance. The goblins will then unleash a small pack of wolves that they have chained in the front caves against the intruders. If the wolves are not enough to repel the intruders, the goblins will send a runner across the wooden rope bridge to the ogre lair to warn their masters and will use ambush and retreat tactics to slow down the intruders. In the ogre cave is a massive steel door that leads to the hidden tome of the evil Necromancer Slaggoth. They have never been able to breach the door, so the tomb has remained untouched. Rumors of a key to the steel door is hidden somewhere in the caves, but has yet to be found. What horrers lie within Slaggoth’s tomb? Who is brave enough or foolhardy enough to find out?

    Great chasms and a fine bridge. Far better than the ones I draw.

    This is a really beautiful map, damn. I wish I had half of your talent!

    Are you working on a full key for this dungeon, or leaving that up to those who use it?

    • January 28, 2013 at 10:15 pm

      I am not making a full key right now, I usually leave it up to anyone who wants to use it. I mostly just draw these things, but thank you for the compliment. I think Fenway5 will be keying it up soon. If you decide to use it and key it up, send me your keyed version and I’d be happy to post it here. Like always any of my maps here are free to use. Thanks again for checking out my stuff….Game on!!

        Ya know, I may just do that. I’ve been in the mood to work on some oldschool dungeon stuff lately.

        After seeing your stuff on the Order of the Gavel, I’d love to see what you come up with. One of the most enjoyable things for me is to see where others take these maps, often its completely not what I was imagining as I draw, but always better than what I imagined..!!!

        If you wouldn’t mind clarifying, what are the speckled areas with the white spots? Are they meant to be accessible, or no?

      • January 28, 2013 at 10:58 pm

        Those are just another form of cross hatching, kind of like rocks and dirt, not accessible. I used to use them only on my verticle maps, but I like the style, so I started incorporating them into my regular maps as well. I want to ask, would you be cool with me linking your site on my list-o-links..??

        It would be an honor to be up there.

        I need to work out a better system for that myself. I don’t want to overwhelm people with dozens of links on my sidebar, but I don’t like leaving so many wonderful blogs un-linked-to. It’s something I’d like to address in a site redesign eventually.

      • January 28, 2013 at 11:08 pm

        The honor is mine, I will be linking you up. I can relate to not wanting a huge amount of links on the side bar, but then again there are some blogs I visit just to see all those links….to see what everyone else is up to.

      • January 28, 2013 at 11:11 pm

        There, it’s a done deal….you are linked. I am looking forward to see what you do with any of my maps.

        I’m just about done with this. I’d like to get it finalized and typed up today. I normally try to keep room descriptions as brief as possible (for ease of reference) but I’ve been unusually verbose with this map. I’m up to ~10 handwritten pages I think.

        How would you like for me to send you the files when it is eventually ready? And would you mind if I posted your map and the key on Papers & Pencils (with attribution of course)?

      • February 2, 2013 at 4:26 pm

        LS, you are more than welcome to post it on your site, I’d love a copy of it myself, you can send whatever files you create to me at astone@allnativeservices.com I’ll post them here as well, giving you full credit for your work. Look forward to seeing what you came up with..!!!

        The email has been sent! I eagerly await your thoughts.

      • February 4, 2013 at 10:09 am

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.
