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!

The Temple of Rot – isometric dungeon map

Oh man, this map took a loooong time to draw, so I really hope you enjoy it. There’s no written story to this dungeon, but perhaps you find the visual storytelling inspiring enough to come up with your own adventure? If you do, please tell me about it in the comments!

Like many of my adventure site maps, this has a dark fantasy streak to it. I like to mix up fantasy and horror elements both in my art and when I run Dungeons & Dragons adventures. I just love it when the players gets a little bit freaked out by the environment.

Would you mind supporting my work?

I don’t like the idea of hiding my work behind paywalls like Patreon and such, and I probably never will.

The Rook Tower – isometric illustration of a wizard’s tower

Originally constructed three-hundred years ago by the late wizard Belfador, “the Tower of the Four Avians” is commonly referred to as “Rook Tower” due to the large colony of rooks that inhabit the old spire. The tower is located north of Fourtower Bridge, at the base of the mountains overlooking the moorland.

The rooks of the tower

The rooks of the tower have lived there for generations. They are intelligent, and quite vicious birds that have effectively warded off any attempts to occupy the tower. Brigands as well as adventurers have tried taking the tower by force, but none have so far been able to stomach more than a night or two in the tower. The rooks employ various tactics ranging from petty theft to proper terrorization of intruders.

A work in progress

Rook tower is an idea that I’ve had for some time. It is loosely inspired by “Claws from the Night” by Fritz Leiber, and of course to some extent by Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. This is my first illustration for the adventure, and I will (hopefully) soon draw maps for the interior of the tower. As I work further on the adventure, any updates will be posted here.

More maps – more adventures

If you enjoy my work, why not hang around for a bit and browse like it was 1996? Here are a few of my latest posts:

Medieval fantasy inn map

Since my map of the Nightfall Lodge became quite popular I though I’d expand a bit on it and create a “template” inn map. Use it to create your own inn, tavern or lodge for your fantasy campaign.

I’ve added top-down maps/floor plans for the floors above the surface. Whatever is going on below you’ll have to come up with on your own 🙂

Feel free to download and print this map. I’ve intentionally left some blank space on it for you to add your own notes. The sign is also left empty for you to fill in with a hairy pig, drunken beaver or whatever other colorful representation you want to give your inn.

Free download link

Here’s the download link. The file is a 300 dpi png image in a4 format, so should be quite suitable for printing.

The Nightfall Lodge – isometric inn map

The Nightfall Lodge – an inn deep in the woods, far from civilization. It’s a strange place, this twilight tavern. A candlelight cantina that seems to exist in a perpetual state of evenfall.

Perhaps located in the dense forest west of Drowner’s Lake in Western Thistlemoor, the Nightfall Lodge is a secret to most, yet so many have a faint memory of visiting it.

Have you ever been hopelessly searching for that bar you were almost certain would be just on the corner of that street you can’t seem to remember the name of? You undoubtedly recognize the general area, and you’re almost certain you’ve been here before. That street sign seems so familiar, and you recall clearly the sloping alley snaking its way down to a … square? Or do you really? The more you try to focus on the memory of the Nightfall Lodge, the more blurry it gets.

That’s the magic of the inn of flickering candles. Many have been there, but only once. Previous patrons can’t seem to find their way back, and the more they try the less details they manage to reproduce from their previous visit. You only stumble upon the Nightfall Lodge when you have absolutely no intention of finding it.

Ancient and Dreadful – isometric dungeon map

There’s something about this design I find unnerving, but I can’t really put my finger on what it is. It just feels … wrong. Ah well, probably just my imagination playing me tricks while I drew it. In any case, here’s an ancient burial site that you can use as a point of interest in your campaign.

There’s probably something nasty down there for the player characters to find. Like the eerie stone carved to resemble a skull. If that thing isn’t cursed then I don’t know what is.

Here’s a download link, feel free to use it in your personal game (like always it’s free for personal use, but I ask you not to publish it elsewhere without my written consent):

More tombs to explore

You know me, I like to draw old and dusty tombs, crypts and burial sites. Here’s a few more:

Perchburrow Point – isometric village map

Perchburrow Point is an old fishing village located at the wind-harrowed Howling Coast. It is (literally) the last point of light before the vast and stormy sea, and whatever horrors await in and beyond it.

The settlement is located on top of a underground system of caves and rivers. As these freshwater rivers meet the ocean the water in the caves is brackish, and there’s an abundance of perch to be caught by veteran fishermen.

Perchburrow Point is an important maritime mark due to the ancient lighthouse that is managed dutifully by the people of the village. Many ships pass by here, and some lay anchor to allow crews a night at the inn before braving the sea (or returning from it).

Please feel free to download the map and use it in your campaign. It should be useful to represent any coastal settlement in a semi-medieval setting.

The Black Tomb of the Wight Knight

The Black Tomb of the Wight Knight is a short dungeon that should be suitable for a night of D&D adventuring. I haven’t written a lot of information on the dungeon itself, other than what you see in the image so it’s up to the dungeon master to make it her own adventure!

I have a loose idea about nearby villagers sacrificing people on the big stone slab by the “entrance”, pouring blood down the shaft to keep the wight knight calm and content.

The giant skull in the chamber below could be made of stone, or even the remains of an ancient creature. Either way it should set the tone of this eerie and grim place.

Feel free to download the image and print it for your own campaign, like always my content is free for personal use. I just ask you not to publish it elsewhere without my written consent. Enjoy!

Twinstone Fort – “viking style” great hall

Here’s an isometric map of a “viking style” fort that you can use in your campaign. Feel free to use the background story below, or just make up your own!

Earl Birger the Bloodnose

The great earl (or “jarl”) Birger the Bloodnose got his ephitet after surviving a mace blow to the face, leaving it permanently bloodshot and deformed (the incident also made him forever prone to sudden bursts of nosebleed when excited).

Despise his grim visage, Birger is a fairly good-hearted man. His twelve hirdmen respect him and nearby farmers find him fair and just. The few shield-maidens as well as the seers have acknowledged the Bloodnose’s right to rule. Even Birger’s thralls recognize that they could be considerably worse off.

In terms of standing manpower Birger is one of the less powerful earls in the country. However, by fair treatment of the beforementioned groups he has managed to form a strong bond to his people. This bond has proven exceptionally useful when the need to quickly muster fighters arise.

Even though Birger is in his fifties he is unmarried, and has no children. His three older sisters live with him. They are also unmarried.

Birger the Bloodnose is a ninth level fighter with the title of "Lord" (D&D B/X).

Twinstone Fort

The fort is named after the two ancient runestones located just outside the gates. The stones tell the story of twin brother and sister who slew a vicious wyrm on the small motte now housing the keep tower.

The wooden pallisade is sturdy enough, as is the newly built watchtower. The gates are closed at night, but usually open during day hours.

Birger Bloodnose is a man of tradition, and will welcome travellers into his great hall. As tradition dictates guests will always be offered food, ale and a place to sleep. Adventurers, especially bards, are appriciated guests.

Medieval merchant guild – isometric map

In any pseudo-medieval fantasy city there will be various classic factions struggling for power. One of the most influential ones is probably the typical merchant guild.

Controlling trade is as close to absolute power as it gets and there are many historical examples of merchant associations outmaneuvering kings and nobles alike.

This map can be used to represent a medieval merchant guild hall and it’s immediate surroundings in the canals district. Will the player characters be able to gain favour among the merchants, or are they there to rob the place?

3D model of the Merchant Guild

The below 3D model of the merchant guild is made by CGI artist Andrei Pék (link to Andrei’s Instagram account, opens in new tab). I’m astounded by the way he breathed life into my simple drawing, and honored that he chose to do it with my work.

Here’s an external link to open the model in a new window, if somehow the embedded version doesn’t work properly.
