  • A Norse Battle Map: The Woodland Nexus

A 23×16″ Norse battle map featuring a tree and a ring of standing stones inspired by Yggdrasil and the nine realms from Norse cosmology.

I carefully selected the basic maps to contain the two I thought would be most useful to most people, Midgard and Vanaheim, since these two are great analogues for the Prime Material Planes and the Feywild.

I’ll admit, I went a little crazy with the color on the Vanaheim/Feywild map. I’m sure it will inspire a dramatic reaction from your players, be it wonder or nausea!

Of course, there is much more variety in the variants pack, as I have deliberately colored them in such a way that they are each distinct and contain representatives for popular planes and earthly seasons. So, whether it’s a plane-hopping adventure, an Old Norse-themed campaign, or a Song of Seasons inspired game, I’ve got you covered.

In order of appearance:
Midgard, Jotunheim, Muspelheim, Niflheim, Alfheim, Svartalfheim, Asgard, Vanaheim, and Helheim.

I hope I struck a good balance between being faithful to the Norse source material and exciting, distinct environments. Hopefully at least one of these strikes your fancy! Let me know which is your favorite and what encounter/game/story ideas come to your mind. 🙂

Oh, and a big thanks to my brother Troy, who came up with the concept for this map! He’s currently working on an exciting encounter specially crafted for it, so stay tuned…
