This was another fun map to draw – mostly because I drew it at a scale that invited me to add in all kinds of fiddly bits. I tend to do this with smaller maps. In this case, the map is only of roughly 5 areas / rooms, and you can get some ideas as to each one just by looking at the map.
Anverson’s Well is a mini-dungeon map I drew for a game where I wanted the classic “secret door in the well” trick to actually go somewhere vaguely interesting, without it being the back door to the local megadungeon.
Here the secret door leads to a rough tunnel and caves that have been partially enlarged by hand. The area is in poor repair, with one door smashed to pieces long ago, and never repaired or replaced.
As usual, feel free to have fun with this map in your games – or on your blog! If you stock it, please let me know and I’ll promote it here!
Very cool. Could be a nice location for a local thieve’s guild, ha!

I found some interesting Old West rules and this would be a really kool hide-out during a draught.
Hey Dyson, I am thinking of including your well map in an upcoming 1st level adventure on my 1e/2e AD&D webpage. I called my site THACO DRAGON. It’s a hold out AD&D page and I wrote a series of adventures to showcase the modified rules I put up. I can’t easily do maps so I tend to write adventures that don’t need them, and/or include only simple descriptions of any rooms.
I have one previous adventure that utilised an open source map simply titled Dungeon Adventure.
The site can be found at this link: http://thacodragon.blogspot.com.au/
The Adventures I put up can be found in a link to the right.
My plan for your well is to place it in a remote part of a forest next to overgrown ruins. The PCs are trying to recover hidden treasure placed there in order to pay off some out-of-town thieves and an assassin who are harrassing an ‘ex’-guild member who never paid off the guild for their freedom.
There will be other elements to the adventure including a town cellar encounter, a favour from the local temple, and a forest encounter on the way to the well. Hopefully I’ll finish this one in a month or two …. because I’m otherwise quite busy ~!
Great map by the way.
