Sledgemoor Swamp

Sledgemoor Swamp Map

Here is my Sledgemoor Swamp map, it is part of the same campaign world as the Merewood map. This was the handout I gave my players last night. Trollshire is the main city in this area, a wretched hive of scum and villainy. It is a city built on multiple levels, buildings built on top of each other with lots of catwalks, bridges, etc. all built around the trunks of these massive swamp trees, hundreds of feet tall. It was inspired by this image I found on the interwebs, I would give credit to who ever painted this picture, but haven’t found the name of the artist yet.

Not sure who painted this picture, but it is the image that inspired Trollshire.

Jonestowne, LeCroix, and Tucketville are small towns, they are populated by Swamp Goblins / Gremlins ala Malifaux miniatures. I loved the concept of Creole sounding goblins, living in the swamps. So I bought a bunch of those Malifaux Gremlins for the campaign game. Named the towns after their miniature counterparts. Sledgemoor swamp and the surrounding environs is not a place for the weak, and should be fun for many gaming sessions.


Merewood – My Current Campaign – The First Map

Hi all, for the last few years I joined up with a regular gaming group. Started a campaign with them, and this is the first campaign map I gave them. It is a sandbox style campaign, just been rolling with players, it’s always fun to see which way they decide to go. I just need to keep up with them each week. They all started the very first session in the small village of Crossroads, then ended up in Blackthorne. It has been their base of operations and is the home of Ugly John’s Tavern. (More on Ugly John’s in a future post) Just needed to post something, more to come.

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.
