Angel’s spit inn and alehouse

The sturdily built and fortress-like Angel’s Spit inn and alehouse is located on the edge of the borderlands. It is the last homely house before the vast and wild frozen tundra and is frequented by trappers, adventurers, couriers and outdoorsmen.

While the name of the inn might sound peculiar, even off-putting, it was originally meant as a compliment as many years ago an overly-refreshed patron cried out “This ale tastes like the spit of angels!”. The expression stuck, and nowadays few can remember the original name of the establishment.

The Angel’s spit is built like a fort to provide protection against the many dangers that haunt the tundra; raiding orcs, swarms of undead lemmings, giga-mammoths, nekrocapra and more. Still, for all the horrors lurking outside its walls the Angel’s Spit has stood intact for three hundred years and among its patrons many believe this unyielding inn will still be serving ale at the end of times.

The Bogpike Tower – isometric fantasy tower map

The Bogpike Tower settlement is build in and around the remains of an ancient bridge abutment. To get away from the horrors of the swamp, the inhabitants of the village have added walkways, huts and houses to the sturdy stone structure.

In my own campaign environment of Fourtower Bridge/Western Thistlemoor, the Bogpike Tower settlement is located in western Greenbottle Morass and is a point of light in an otherwise bleak part of the moor. Here are some other examples of how you can use it in your own campaign:

  • A pirate and/or smuggler’s lair
  • A wizards tower
  • A trading post
  • A large inn
  • A fishing village
  • A rebel camp

In any case, I hope you enjoy the tower!

Danse Macabre – dancing skeleton in graveyard

The “Danse Macabre” is an artistic genre from the late middle ages. It usually depicts skeletons or skeletal figures dancing, and is meant to symbolise the universality of death. I was really inspired by the danse macabre for this illustration of an undead skeleton dancing on top of it’s own grave.

Fighter with mace “flänsklubba” and shield

I wasn’t going to write anything about this drawing, but I had to, as the word “flänsklubba” (the old Swedish word for this type of mace) doesn’t return any decent results on Google. There are two Swedish words for this type of weapon, actually, and they’re both really cool:

  • Flänsklubba translates into “flanged club”
  • “Hjälmkrossare” translates into “helmet crusher”

In any case, I don’t draw a lot of characters, but it’s something I would like to get better at, so I just recently started practising it. This fellow is supposed to be some type of grizzled mercenary veteran. You could use him as a hireling or NPC in your games. I hope you enjoy the drawing!
