Sometimes you find inspiration in another map. Initially I started drawing this map based only on three corridors, and somewhere along the way I realized that it was starting to feel like Quasqueton – the dungeon from the classic module “B1 In Search of the Unknown”.
So I went with it and stole a few elements from the classic map, and tried to compress the whole In Search of the Unknown experience into a single small dungeon map instead of a massive sprawling complex – complete with one-way secret doors, alcoves along the entry corridor, the kitchen and dining rooms, throne room, garden, storage space, pools, and a lower level of natural caverns.
Originally I drew the core of this map for the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon 2 project, and then added the additional material to make it into a fully self-contained map once I scanned the section being used for the Exquisite Corpse. I’ll post the exquisite corpse slice when the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon 2 is finished and on display.
