The old church sits on a low mound hidden among the white aspen trees that have grown around it and in some cases through the outer stonework of the structure. The House of Githaleon was a place of respite and quiet away from the city, and that feeling is still strong here in the daylight, although the slightest breeze makes the leaves of the aspen clatter and shake, sounding almost like running water from a distance.
When the master of the temple passed on, the church was maintained by a few acolytes for a while, but other tasks and employ ate away at their time and the structure was abandoned to the wilderness.
To some, the silence of the hilltop ruins is a darker portent. Trails through the trees in winter indicate that something lives within – most believe it to be wild cats, but some are certain that someone lives there with these animals as their companions. A dark druid who watches the city waiting for the opportunity to help the city become like the House of Githaleon – quiet, decaying, and home to nature once again.
Of course, if a druid does indeed live in the old tower above the church, even they know better than to descend beneath the structure to the ancient undercrofts where the old temple master is buried.
The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 14,400 pixels (48 squares) wide. To use this with a VTT you would need to resize the squares to either 70 pixels (for 5′ squares) or 140 pixels (for 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 3,360 pixels wide or 6,720 pixels wide, respectively.

I particularly like this one. I have a spot in the Svalich woods where it will fit perfectly.
I can hear my players already, though: “Do those other floors go up or down?” Yeah, it’s a tower, but I don’t think they’ll admit to seeing that right off the bat.
Now I have to go crawl your site and find some crypts to go underneath 😀

Any number of dungeons can fit beneath, but I’ll also post a set that I designed to go with it later this week.
And with that warning, no adventurers or fools ever tried to enter the temple basement ever again…

Is there a map for the undercroft yet? Or what map would you recommend?
Dyson Logos said:
I’ll be posting it tomorrow. 🙂 But seriously, any stair-entry dungeon level will work.
