A vibrant, thatch-roofed cabin puffing white smoke from its chimney… And yet something feels sinister.

Sinister Cabin battle map - Banner small

Congratulations, you’ve passed your Insight check! Yes, despite its country charm, this cabin sports an optional secret basement containing an impressive pile of bones.

I made this map based on a friend’s idea, and that concept involves a cellar door with a magical lock. When a certain key is turned a secret entrance will appear in the building’s stone foundation 20 feet to the left of the cellar. Alternatively (I only thought of this mid-drawing) you might utilize a Howl’s Moving Castle sort of magic cellar that opens to two different basements – I’ll leave it up to you!

Of course, this map could just as easily be the altogether mundane home of an altogether normal farmer. 😉

I’ve provided the map, and now it’s up to you to come up with a story for it! We’d love to hear about what comes to your mind in the comments below.

The expanded pack also contains 62 furniture and skeleton assets plucked from the basic cabin, plus three distinct map variants. Oh, and they all have light and dark variants too!

Howdy! I’ve been hard at work the last few days building a collection of seventy-one cowboy-caravan-themed assets, including horses, wagons, tents, and everything in-between. My game of the month has been Red Dead Redemption 2, and these assets came from some drawing study I did in trying to understand the components of a roaming campsite.
