Tomb of forbidden knowledge by NoahW Tomb of forbidden knowledge by NoahW
A D&D dungeon map I made for a current campaign.
It's very much akin to a medieval mad scientist's laboratory,
with flesh golems and the like.

Yes I'm a nerd...

A map!!! This is soooo coooool! It immediately reminded me of those scary dungeons in Oblivion with at least one grunting zombie around every corner :zombie: OMG I love this! It's so inspiring, thank you! :dummy:

No, it's awesome! The moment I saw it I was back in one of those Ayleid dungeons with a zombie just in front of me :noes: 
I've never tried that :saddummy: First I didn't know anyone to play with me and now... I prefer writing my own stories :D

I do miss it, usually the games ended up petering out but it was just fun goofing around with my buds

I remember a little Lovecraft inspired kind of RPG with my cousin, it was just one night, but we had a lot of fun :D ...And couldn't sleep afterwards, because he found this Locevraft atmosphere music on Youtube which was way too creepy :'D
I would love to see more of this! :dummy:

I just imagined some small kids finding this game like they did with Jumanji and then starting to play, leaving them totally distraught ^_^ (and never able to sleep again)

Sometimes, mapmaking is awesomer than the actual campaign. This is one of those times

Short and intensive adventures interlinked by a non-linear sandbox-like setting is a good alternative.

You don't have to play alla games at the "grand story".

I assume your icon is supposed to be the spades in a deck of card, but all of a sudden I can't help but seeing some kind of bug looking at me...
That's me staying on topic btw.

One of the best looking dungeon maps I have ever seen. Your gallery of art is very impressive.
Do you do commissioned work for creating Maps ?
