[Friday Map] The Architect’s Isometric Delve


, , , , , , , , ,

This is another map drawn using the Dungeon Architect Cards as the baseline for the design and structure.

But I wanted it smaller than the last map, and since I had a new pad of isometric paper that I haven’t tried yet (from squarehex), I combined the two ideas together into one great tasting dungeon. Less than a dozen rooms make this a perfectly sized dungeon level for an evening of play (or two if you use a system with particularly long combats and decide to sprinkle multiple groups of enemies through the level).

The isometric design really POPS in this one – a combination of the hand-drawn grid and the lightly drawn and non-overlapping walls. I’m quite proud of the whole thing. It also manages to have a bit more character than the larger Dungeon Architect Card map – a combination of the ability to draw in more character at this scale and the limited size of the structure.
