The stone-paved roads of the Everwood county have kept the North free and prosperous for generations. Safe and fast passage through the dark and deep northern forests have been important trade routes for merchants and highways for armies.
For three winters the roads have not been safe anymore. A group of bandits has been ambushing and attacking caravans on the Everwood roads and grown more powerful and bold more recently. The bandits use magic to prepare their ambushes, defeat any opposition and to escape without a trace.
In the woods close to a small town, there is a temple of a small, but fast-growing cult. The cult has made its home in a gnomish workshop that was abandoned a long time ago. What happened to the gnomes, nobody knows or remembers anymore.

I tested printing a section of a map I’m working on. The original was not drawn with a grid, so it doesn’t quite match, but works well enough IMHO. The grid is 1″ and the resolution fits virtual tabletop use as well. This is an exciting development for me as I’m trying to make my maps available for an even wider range of different use cases.
The Tomb of Nihilar… a pyramid hidden in the jungle hides a horrible secret deep underground. There is an abandoned camp near the tomb entrance. The last entry of a diary found at the campsite says something about a secret door in the sacrificial chamber and how others must be stopped from getting the treasure.
This map is my first fully digital map published on Patreon. What do you think of it?

When I started drawing this map, the big statue at the center of the main hall became a sort of a center piece for the whole map. I did not come up with a clear story for this map, but instead added various features that might offer different uses for this map.
Perhaps there are creatures living in the cave that pose as the deities that the temple was originally built for. Or maybe an earthquake has disturbed the magical balance of the tomb and something has woken. Or perhaps a cult is conducting their vile necromantic rituals and corrupted this tomb?
What ever the case might be, I’m pretty sure those statues might give some trouble to the adventurers…
