A stream bubbles gently into a wide lake, home to an orchestra of frogs and a galaxy of fireflies. What harm could find you in a place as peaceful as this?
When it came time to draw map #3 this month I found that my printer had suddenly given up the ghost, depriving me of a printed grid or a digital draft of any kind. When I’m reduced to a blank sheet of paper like that I like to fall back on natural scenes, where grids don’t matter and the shapes are endlessly malleable. Besides, they’re my favorite things of all to draw!
As this particular map evolved it became a sort of throwback to another of my earliest maps, the Shingle Shore. I specially designed this one to offer a stealthy route for assailants – bushy concealment all the way from the woods to the campsite. Don’t get too wrapped up in the view, PCs!
Do any encounter ideas come to your mind? What sort of creature(s) might live in this region? How do people in your world deal with mosquitos? I’d love to hear your thoughts below. 🙂
