Inspired by some recent dungeon designs and geomorphs by Nate McD over on Google+ along with some of the odd-shaped buildings on the original map from the AD&D1e Lankhmar supplement, I present the Spiral Temple.
But that’s a pretty boring name. It’s probably the temple of Scrovet the Orange, the patron of quests, journeys and riverbeds. Or something like that. But from the outside it is recognizable due to the two intersecting domes that sit above the unusually shaped structure, and from within the immediate reminder of where you are is the long twisting hallway from the front door to the main temple dome.
Like most temples, it is a mix of worship space and administrative chambers where the temple elders and clerical staff work. Not being a particularly large temple with a huge congregation, there aren’t much more than a half-dozen rooms dedicated to staff and operations.
The clerics of Scrovet the Orange offer blessings to those who are leaving on long trips, perilous quests, and those who work the winding rivers that thread through the nearby hills.
This map is made available for your free use thanks to the amazing patrons of the Dodecahedron Patreon Campaign that keeps me fed and sheltered while I draw these fancy doodads for your enjoyment. Awesome people like Kevin Flynn, Jamie Hale, “The Italian Metal Head Guiseppe BlackDeath”, Veselin Kostadinov, and over 200 others!
One step further – because of the incredible generosity of my patrons, I’m able to make this set of maps free for commercial use also. Each month while funding is over the $300 mark, each map that achieves the $300+ funding level will be released under this free commercial license. You can use, reuse, remix and/or modify the maps that are being published under the commercial license on a royalty-free basis as long as they include attribution (“Cartography by Dyson Logos” or “Maps by Dyson Logos”).
For those that want/need a Creative Commons license, it would look something like this:

Again, this shouldn’t need repeating, but this only applies to the maps in this post!
So enjoy! The Spiral Temple (or whatever name you give it in your games) is yours to do with as you please, personally or commercially!
