Beneath the buckled stone floors of the jungle ruins in the Tempest Gardens is a massive set of catacombs guarded by the eternal vigilance of fifteen deathless minotaurs.
Each minotaur has endured the ages imprisoned within these catacombs in their own way, but none are untouched by time or violence. And they are not alone – while they can barely stand each other’s company, many have surrounded themselves with a few creatures that provide them with entertainment, food, or just the comfort of sharing a living space with others – even if (as in one case) they are little more than psionic protoplasmic slime.
This map was drawn at ledger size (11″ x 17″) at a scale of 6 squares per inch. Part way through drawing it I decided it would be fun to stick in an “easter egg” like the classic Quasqueton map showing up in Undermountain – so I added bits of maps from B2, X1 and T1 as I went. Because the map is so big, it ends up being a very large file. The 600dpi version linked to above is almost 4 Mb. Normally I release my maps in 1200dpi – but that’s a massive file size difference – so I’ve included the 1200dpi version as a download here at 9.4Mb: [Download 1200dpi Copy]

Awesome map. I have a question, I’ve read most of the adventures on your site and love them. Do you have others floating around out there I can buy?

I don’t think I’ve got any currently out there that I’ve written that aren’t available through the site except a short one that appeared only in the limited edition of the first Dyson’s Delves.
