Dungeon23 – Hidden Hallways of the Gang Wars

For Week 11 of #Dungeon23, I filled out the rest of the map I drew last week. It’s been fun to connect two of the earlier maps, so I’m planning on doing the same next week and exploring what lies to the west of the Catacombs of the Monkey God. Room Descriptions 71. Trapped corridor.Continue reading “Dungeon23 – Hidden Hallways of the Gang Wars”

Dungeon23 – The Artificer’s Abandoned Workshop

For Week 10 of #Dungeon23, I’ve drawn the sewer map that connects the very first map I did with The Lamplighters’ Bolt-hole. There’s quite a bit of space left on the page so I’m thinking I might continue with the same map for Week 11 if I can decide what to do with the key.Continue reading “Dungeon23 – The Artificer’s Abandoned Workshop”

Scarlet Citadel Session 35 – Running the Gauntlet

After repelling yet more trollkin and their allies last session, and discovering a new route in and out of the Scarlet Citadel, the characters continued to explore the Dwarven Barracks on Level 3. You can read earlier posts here. This post contains spoilers for Scarlet Citadel. The party hadn’t really had much time to examineContinue reading “Scarlet Citadel Session 35 – Running the Gauntlet”

Dungeon23 – Cannibal Caverns of the Gorger

For Week 9 of #Dungeon23, I decided to draw the ghoul-infested caves and catacombs to the east of the Charnel Pit of the Restless Dead. To make sure I got the geography right and avoid any more schoolboy errors, I had a go at drawing an isometric map of Weeks 1 – 9. I’ll addContinue reading “Dungeon23 – Cannibal Caverns of the Gorger”

Halls of the Mountain King was the second 4th Edition Open Design project from Kobold Press. I ran the adventure in 2010 as part of the same Parsantium campaign as Wrath of the River King. Here’s the write up from the ninth session which features the 4e version of the lich hounds that have been plaguing myContinue reading “Halls of the Mountain King Session 9 – The Ritual”

Dungeon23 – Cult Temple of the Moon Goddess

This week’s map is located between The Lamplighters’ Bolt-hole and the Charnel Pit of the Restless Dead, so the numbering may seem a bit confusing. Still pondering what to draw next week, but more caves and tunnels could be fun…. Room Descriptions 50. Spiral stairs from [42] lead down into this room with four doors.Continue reading “Dungeon23 – Cult Temple of the Moon Goddess”

Scarlet Citadel Session 34 – The Secret Spiral Staircase

Last session the adventurers returned to Redtower following their trials and tribulations in the Scarlet Citadel. Here’s what happened next. Tricksy the elf rogue was back this week but Farthrum the gearforged fighter was absent. You can read earlier posts here. This post contains spoilers for Scarlet Citadel. Back in Redtower, the adventurers recover from their recentContinue reading “Scarlet Citadel Session 34 – The Secret Spiral Staircase”

Dungeon23 – Charnel Pit of the Restless Dead

This week’s dungeon lies two levels beneath the Lamplighters’ Bolt-hole, and can be accessed via the collapsing stairs in Room 42. The reason it’s two levels below and not just one is that I forgotten about the deep pit I’d put in Room 40! Luckily this gives me a perfect opportunity to add a sublevelContinue reading “Dungeon23 – Charnel Pit of the Restless Dead”
