This week’s map I drew on a standard 3 x 5 index card. I had originally bought a few packs of index cards for my D&D Gamma World campaign with the intention of rewriting all the Alpha and Omega cards onto them and then adding more whenever I thought of one I wanted to add to the mix. But I’m lazy and didn’t get around to it.
Instead, I started pulling out index cards for a bunch of other stuff. Grocery lists, love notes, and so on. And of course, as with any other paper found around me for any length of time, some got turned into maps. Not just any maps, mind you, but delicious little dungeons with few rooms and a lot of added details such as some furnishings, bits of rubble and so on.
This particular map is inspired in part by some of the dungeons in the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Particularly the large hall at the eastern end and the passage that bridges across the top of it to reach the statue in the alcove.

Love crossovers in maps – they work great as foreshadowing and as a very risky shortcut if brave players want to hop down to the next level, unsure if there is a way back up.
If you’re interested in Gamma World cards I created a set of 30 Rifts inspired Omega Tech that you can find here:
Very glad to see you back in business. Great stuff – don’t stop!
I’ve fallen in love with this map and stocked it (in Italian!) on my blog:http://terretormentate.wordpress.com/2012/02/22/mini-dungeon-la-biblioteca-di-orosio/
