Free Map Friday - The Deserted Desert of the Damned


 
     Maybe you shouldn't have made that left turn in Albuquerque, perhaps you shouldn't have insulted that nicely dressed man in the casino, or perhaps that old silver mine was only a legend after all. However you found yourself in this godforsaken place, you never thought you would be asking yourself, "If a voice cries out in the wilderness and it goes unheard does it make a sound?"

...and what's up with those kids on BMX bikes?

Free Map Friday - Well of the Ancients




     Children of Graystone are missing and the the goblins of Graystone Vale have a secret...

In the village of Graystone there is a story told to little children about goblins who used to steal unruly children in the night, but the events of the past suggest that it is not just a story. First there was the mystery of the dissapearing stockings--every left stocking in the village just vanished overnight, then the sheep started to dissapear, now it's worse, much worse.

Free Map Monday - 51st and 9th




     The body in the middle of the street certainly looked like a suicide, "But why would a perfectly healthy young man who just won a full athletic scholarship to the best universitys in the country jump off a building, and what was he doing in this neighborhood?" Before you even ask your next question his skin begins to move and crawl as if trying to free itself from the lifeless corpse, or was it BAM, POW, ZAAAP! "Hahahaha super-fools! You will never defeat me!" The evil Blue Shark launches himself high into the air as his flying robot-squid minions attack, or perhaps it was "Listen, we don't want anyone to get hurt, so just let the hostages go and we'll talk about your demands..." whatever it is, every street corner has a story to tell, what's yours?

Free Map Monday - The Broken Stone Ruins




     For as long as anyone can remember these ruins have always been here. For as long as anyone can remember these ruins have always been here. Some say a long dead cult built an altar here to their alien gods, another legend is that it was once part of a larger temple complex that was destroyed eons ago in the great battle of the gods, others say the weathered stone tablet is a doorway to the faerie world carried here and sealed by the ancient druids of the Singing Stones?  Whatever you have been told there are great riches burried beneath the Broken Stone and perhap more, but you have also been warned, "The land is cursed! No one has ever stepped foot on the anabranch of the ruins and returned to tell the tale."

     Last month I started a new regular feature for Patreon supporters, the "Living Terrain Tiles" series. "Living Terrain Tiles" use a hex based system that can easily be configured and re-configured into just about any type of terrain that is required for the encounter.This week, while I began to work on some new Tiles for shorelines and rivers, I realized I didn't have any forks for the stream tiles, so I have included them in this weeks creation. I have also added some additional tiles that make it possible to recreate the Broken Stone Ruins as well as the Singing Stones maps using the Living Terrain Tiles. The new tiles include a fork in the stream, 7 new meadow tiles with rock formations, 2 sets of tree tops, and a page of tree trunk texture.

A bundle of deep space horror for the holidays!






Bundle and save 30% on the Adventure and Battlemaps! 


     Mal Fisher, the Captain of the light freighter Bella LeGosi, claims to know the whereabouts of The Lady of Esparto, an ancient lost ship carrying treasure worth millions, and he is looking to hire a salvage crew. He wants to keep everything off the books as he is operating without the required paperwork. He has chosen not to apply for a salvage license for fear that a treasure as great as the Lady of Esparto will attract too much unwanted attention, increasing the likelihood of claim jumpers, pirates, and crooked authorities looking for an easy buck. He is offering a substantial amount of money and a percentage of the treasure for the completion of the job.


This bundle includes the Savage Worlds adventure and several Sci-Fi modular dungeon tile sets, including grid versions and .jpg files for VTTs.
