As my D&D5e campaign continues in the titular city at the heart of of the classic 1981 module “Dwellers of the Forbidden City”, I find myself drawing out maps of more and more structures from said ruins.
This particular set of structures is mostly in ruins, but also has a large section of the temple that has survived the destruction brought about by time, ancient calamities, and the gradual sinking and liquifaction of the land as it gets boggier. There are also areas in the more ruined buildings that have stood the test of time slightly better and also show signs of habitation.
The main building is split up into two-to-three separate areas under the same roof. The two doors leading out into the crumbling streets of the city lead to areas that are connected by a very small door, probably a servants’ door, which would otherwise keep the two areas separate. The area towards the top of the map is reached exclusively via the courtyard and was probably a nice home of someone of importance.
This map was drawn with the help and support of my patrons, and was drawn on an A4 sheet of 7mm graph paper from Squarehex with Sakura Micron pens.
