It’s time for another set piece! This time it’s a book filled, purple-carpeted Wizard’s Tower!

 

 

This is a cramped map, with most rooms offering only 5-8 clear tiles, so have your squeeze and close combat rules handy!

It might make for a fun low-level quest, where the local wizard has gone missing and the players must investigate his home. Goblins – or another suitable nuisance with group bonuses – have taken advantage of the open guest room and food-stocked basement. Up the stairs await a number of arcane traps left by the tower’s old denizen, including an animated suit of armor guarding his teleportation circle. Further still up the spiraling steps is his bedroom, where a priceless telescope is pointed out the window and a mysterious chest sits against the wall. I’m sure it’s trapped too!

Let me know what plot hooks, encounters and traps you can come up with in the comments!

The Brackish Marsh Battle Map

Today’s FREE map is the Brackish Marsh. This map went through a great many color changes, and I may yet upload an alternate, greener version. That said, I like the autumn feel of this one, which is convenient in that the campaign I run is currently in autumn!
