Amateur Night at The Tavern - "Some Guy's Crypt"


I'm not really a mapmaker. Really, I'm not. It's just that the damn kit that +Peter Regan sent me makes me want to draw maps. The small sized paper is a plus for me, as it allows for me to experiment.

My thatching still needs lots of work.

Lets see - two hallways, two rooms, two coffins, one statue, one dais, one single door, one double door and one secret door. Not too shabby for "Some Guy's Crypt" ;)

  1. Looks fine to me. Cleaner than every map I've ever drawn.

  2. Don't worry about. I once drew a map that was so bad... I was embarrassed, by myself. You know how weird that is, solitary embarrassment?

    I also feel it every time I watch that Xena musical... (not the dramatic one, the "comedic" one, suffice to say, it is bad.)

    1. Edward Lockhart, get out of my head and stop stealing my life!

      Seriously though, that was the first time I've ever been getting ready to leave a comment and seen someone else write the same damned thing ahead of me. Weird.

    2. Surely not the Xena part, though...

  3. I must have rolled a "1" to find secret doors, because I see it.

  4. Very nice. I find that hex paper, a pencil, a ruler and enough beer to make the ruler necessary, are the backbones of my map making skills.

    1. beer came after - I had to jump when I realized Ashley had left her perch ;)

      damn, i should have named it "Crypt of Some Young Guy", but that's the beer talking ;)

  5. Yeah, your thatching sucks. Mine is worse. I have to shade in around it. But some guy's crypt looks like a perfect micro adventure...it would be perfect for a certain zine...hint hint.

  6. Ah, the crosshatching isn't that bad. It's kinda cute in fact. Endearing.

  8. Looks like the paper is just about the right size for the little mini-barrows for the random generator in Barrowmaze II.

  9. I like your cross-hatching. You needn't use Dyson's style, although he's the king of cross-hatching. Read some drawing tutorials and go experimenting - there's lots of cross-hatching techniques for drawing that can be used for dungeons also. Keep up the hand-drawn...well...drawing :)
