Free Map Friday - The Singing Stones


    Long ago the Druids harnessed the power of the singing stones, channeling the energy of the land through them. Today that is all but a legend, fairy stories told to children at bedtime. But what if the stories were true? Recently sheep herders have been speaking in hushed rumors about strange music in the wind and shadows that move independently of the position of the sun...

This week I started a new regular feature for Patreon supporters, the "Living Terrain" series. Iv'e been expeimenting with modular 2.5D Print & Paste outdoor terrain and I think I have my final answer. I'm using a hex based system that can easily be configured and re-configured into just ablout any type of terrain that is required for the encounter. I was inspired to turn some of those tiles into a battlemap.






You can download this week's free map here.
I'd like to invite everyone to add to the narrative and send me your adventure ideas for this and all past and future maps. Let me know how you use it!

All Patreon supporters this month get the hi-res files of all maps as well as bonus content. Patrons at the $2.50+ level additionally get bonus versions with grids.

     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 all the apropriately themed modular dungeon tile sets. Also included are grid versions and .jpg files for Virtual Tabletops.







Heart of Darkness is currently available digitally as a White Star compatible adventure and as a Savage Worlds licensed adventure.

Free Map Monday - The Caves and Tunnels Underhill




     Deep in the interior of the desert planet Oz, the silicon based life forms worship the disembodied head of a long inactive giant robot warrior... or something like that.


This map was created using the new modular cave hex tiles I have been working on for tabletop play. They're still in the experimental stage, so stay tuned.

     Hidden below the surface world are mysteries man was not meant to discover. Ancient alien cities, monuments, and shrines that were once long forgotten, now have become home to new creatures. Recently rediscovered, the Shrine of the Vampire Beetle has become active once again.

I hope you find a home in your adventure for this map. Let me know how you use it and what story it tells.

My imagination is already at work with a tale about six petrified aliens, a combination lock puzzle and several traps. Oh, and don't forget the Vampire Beetles!

For tonight, only real monsters walk the streets, and they are about to give each other a nasty surprise.

   The door leading to the Lido Deck is locked and sealed shut; the lock has been damaged. When piece of space debris or a small asteroid collided with the glass roof, it punctured a hole, triggering the safety mechanism that sealed off the Lido Deck to prevent depressurization of the rest of the ship. The door will have to be forced open or the lock repaired...
