In the late summer I introduced the Heart of Darkling series of maps. Unlike my other ongoing megadungeon (the Tekumel Undercity maps), the Heart of Darkling series is being released for commercial use as the maps are drawn. The goal of the project is to produce 20 maps that are all tied together by a single underground river and lake.

The Weeping Outpost

The Weeping Outpost

Those travelling along the underground passage of the Darkling River tend to avoid this small fortress. While several of the stops so far have included methods of getting to the surface, this fortress instead links up to the underdark proper.

The drow who guard this fortress call it “The Weeping Outpost” and while assignments here are important (as it guards a “back entrance” into the heart of their deeper territories), most dark elves have no love for the damp and cold place – too close to the surface to be comfortable and too far from the strange comforts they enjoy in the depths. They bide their time and hope to get relieved and travel home as quickly as possible.



This map is made available to you under a free license for personal or commercial use thanks to the awesome supporters of my Patreon Campaign. Over 400 amazingly generous people have come together to fund the site and these maps, making them free for your use.

Because of the incredible generosity of my patrons, I’m able to make these 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 this 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:
