I really enjoy isometric maps, probably because I am also a huge fan of isometric RPG:s like Diablo and Baldur’s Gate. Isometric maps are great at telling a story, as you can cram in quite a lot of artistic elements, more so than in top-down maps. Still, the perspective also provides the dungeon master with a good overview.
The only downside is probably that isometric maps are quite tricky to draw – at least for me!
Have you ever been to Rappan Athuk? The mega-dungeon adventure by Frog God Games is a hefty tome, and quite an iconic piece of roleplaying paraphernalia.
There are few places in Rappan Athuk’s surroundings where adventurers can rest up in relative safety, but Zelkor’s Ferry is one of them. I didn’t particularly like the map in the adventure, so I re-drew it myself. Hope you enjoy!
