Map-a-Week
Caves
Cartography by Rob Lazzaretti

This month's maps are unique caves. "For October, I have created five new caves," says Rob Lazzaretti about this month's Map-a-Week feature. "Each one could be a stand-alone locale or a starter for a much larger cave complex. I wanted to include some more unique features this time, since fans always request some variety in cave and dungeon design."

10/30 The Crypt: This cave would serve as an excellent burial place or hidden temple. As you can see, some tunneling into the side was done well after the original construction. What would the large altar be for? Download 72dpi JPG (343k)

10/23 Mysterious Orbs: What could the mysterious orbs be? They could store arcane power of some sort. Perhaps they're opaque spheres with something hidden inside -- something that should remain hidden. Download 72dpi JPG (445k)

10/16 The Worming Way: What if ancient gigantic worms dug out a tunnel complex? I think it would result in many rooms, chambers, and a water feature. The entrances suggest the wormlike creatures dug into the side of a hill or perhaps a small mountain. Download 72dpi JPG (438k)

10/9 The Flooded Sanctum: This sanctum would be great as a hideout or smuggler's lair, or perhaps a tomb filled with arcane secrets. Download 72dpi JPG (420k)

10/02 The Winding Passage: Multiple tunnels going in various directions, collapsed sections, a large circular room, and perhaps an arena of some sort make for lots to explore. Download 72dpi JPG (468k)
