Geomorph #106

The Dungeoneer's Survival Guide is a gift that keeps on giving as far as maps go. There is a whole wealth of interior artwork (not counting the maps themselves) that inspire geomorphs with interesting terrain. The following piece looks like a great place to stage a subterranean action sequence. Imagine a party of adventurers having to hurry over that rough terrain while roped together.


The geomorph based on this illustration assumes a cavern full of crevices and other impassable terrain. Only a series of ledges (often abutting natural columns) will allow a party of careful adventures to make their way across the southern part of the tile. Rounding things out in the north, we have two passages that cross over each other.

Is there any way I can print out your geomorphs around 25mm or 28mm scale size as most minis are based on these sizes? By the way, thanks for all the hard work. These hand drawn maps are amazing!

You mean to actually place the minis on the map? It would be no problem to scale up to that size but I fear the resolution might not be up to the task. I'll have to try it out and see what it looks like.

at ten squares square, it won't easily print on a page either. I have been considering this idea since I learned of the geomorph at Dave's Mapper.. Probably easier most of the time to make small printouts for the dm and use a dry erase board and do a quick redraw. Also keeps the players from seeing crossings and areas outside their ken.

@kokagami: Yeah, I agree that it might be more trouble than it is worth to try to print these to scale on regular printer paper. Simply redrawing them on Tac-Tiles/Battlemats has worked fine me thus far.
