Burial mounds are a staple of fantasy games and stories. Today’s offering is a collection of nine different burial mounds for those occasions when you really need to loot a a small tomb right now.
The four lower tombs have Greek “Dromos” entrances – an “avenue” cut into the barrow hill leading to the door to the tomb itself. These avenues would be built up in stone to hold back the earth of the mound and to provide a clear route to the door. Often the end of the dromos furthest from the door would be decorated with columns or other decorations, often long gone by the time would-be tomb robbers arrive on site.
There are a total of 24 barrow mounds in the set now:
- Barrow Mounds of the Lich & Famous
- More Barrow Mounds of the Lich & Famous
- Barrow Mounds of the Lich & Famous III

Hello Dyson, I’ve been meaning to comment for the last few maps. Keep up the great work. Thanks for producing all these idea-inducing maps. Even though every time a map comes out, I have to re-adjust my plans to somehow incorporate the latest one into the campaign… you’re making my life as a DM easy and hard at the same time!
Reblogged this on DDOCentral.
Me: “You hear an enormous thud, and the ground shakes.”
Me: “Out the window, beyond the gray slate roof of the inn’s other wing, you notice an enormous mound beyond the graveyard, where yesterday there was only Farmer Mallow’s pasture. Mallow’s prize billy goat is standing on top of it, quite confused and looking for something to attack.”
Thanks again. You do really great work
