Encounter Maps

Here are a pair of encounter maps I prepared for the first session of my new D&D 4th Edition game tonight. The party will be venturing through a swamp. The arrow-looking things are thick patches of plant matter that serve as difficult terrain. Blue marks the edges of deep standing water.

 On this second map, the section in the middle is a log bridge covered in slippery moss (in green).
The maps were hand-drawn on 8.5"x11" singles from Ennie-winning Gaming Paper.

Dungeon Crate, May 2016

For my birthday last month, my friends got me a subscription to DungeonCrate.  This service is the RPG-focused entry in the current "crate" craze, where you pay a subscription fee and a box of themed stuff is sent to your home monthly, quarterly, or whatever. Well, my first crate arrived today, and I thought I'd go through it here on the blog.
