The Skyland of Equinox is a floating island that drifts among the crowds and, in the Age of Memories setting, is the ancestral home of the Eladrin Elves. With each season in perfect balance thanks to powerful ancient magics, the island is a paradise for those fortunate enough to live on it.
At least, until things go wrong in this campaign causing it to become a dangerous and wondrous place to explore.Read More
This little farm in the swamp is kept by a strange woman with otherworldly powers. Locals say she keeps her still beating heart upon an altar outside her home…
Slowly getting things back up and running after some hiccups. Here’s a new map to have some fun with:
For a bunch of reasons, I will be slowing my update schedule in 2019 substantially. Stuff will still post, but at a much slower rate.
Look for the next map set in late January. As shown in the Featured Post, most of the maps this year will be themed around Briarthorn, a 1920s era setting.
Connecting back to the Shipwreck Island map, we expand Falleron to the south and west with this expanded world map:
Shipwreck Island is a pretty place to be stranded, but not without its dangers. This overlook commands a powerful view of the island, but secrets may lurk in the tropical jungles and the nearby cave…
So remember that Liquid Asset map last week? It can’t be called Shipwreck Island without a shipwreck!
Sometimes you need a ship to get you to places like Shipwreck Island. It’s probably fine.
Hey, look a new place to go and get shipwrecked with all your friends!
Many of you may remember The Lazy Minnow steamship from several of our ongoing campaigns (Scourge of Heinrich and Mullenstone). In the Scourge of Heinrich game, players were blessed by Gein, a nature goddess, after they saved one of her sanctuaries from corruption. As a reward, she had the wood of the Lazy Minnow come alive, turning the ship into an organic airship!
This week we have The River Prince, a multi-level steamboat traveling up and down whatever river system works well for your players. This sizable vessel is perfect for a mystery game, a player headquarters, or even for combat encounters in a spooky swamp! Read More
This area map was a donation completed for Dr. Brenda Peynado’s worldbuilding class at the University of Central Florida. Dr. Peynado’s class has her students work collaboratively to create a fantasy world based upon the college campus, and as each subsequent class begins their coursework they add to the rich tapestry of backstory and adventure for this shared world.
To help kick off the first cycle of this course, over the Fall 2018 semester I worked with Dr. Peynado and her students to create this initial map for the course:
This week we have the dreaded Creeping Meadows. This is the battlefield between the Summer and Winter Courts of the Faewild. It is a strange place riddled with unexploded magical spells and altered permanently by their constant battles with raw, wild magic.
The Crystal Forest appears to be a tranquil woodland filled with glowing trees. As with most things in the faewild, the beauty goes hand-in-hand with danger. These trees are filled with volatile magic, ready to explode if not handled carefully.
