While I was drawing the various ruins maps that were posted last month, occasionally I would get an idea of a piece that was… small. I collected these three smaller pieces together and stuck them onto a single page for release today. Kind of a final clean up on March’s production maps.
We have a small dome-type structure (like a big stone gazebo practically) on the upper left. Probably a shrine at one point, or a memorial to someone important-ish. Below that we have the remnants of a larger multi-chambered structure that has completely fallen into ruin so only some of the walls remain without any roof at all. In the centre of this space is a large statue, so again likely a religious site or a memorial of some kind. Finally, on the right, we have an obvious church / temple structure in the middle with two detached “wings” that have fallen into greater ruin than the central structure and are slowly being reclaimed by the forest.
These are all excellent destinations for old treasure maps indicating where a specific loose stone can be moved to find an old cache. Or just structures you run across while exploring the forests as reminders that many other civilizations have existed here before. The dome structure is probably intact enough that some creature is using it as temporary shelter (or perhaps an Ogre Mage has been cursed to exist there). The lower left structure is just twisting enough that a down-on-his-luck minotaur could take up residence there, adding wicker horns to the central statue and setting noisy traps at the entrances… And of course the ruins of an old church certainly hide some lost knowledge or a way to contact a forgotten deity.

Another use for “Little Ruins” would be as a no longer used and now abandoned structure out on the fringes of an active site. Perhaps it truly is abandoned… until a group of adventurers thought it would make for a nicely concealed spot to set up base near the real adventure site.
Cue the race to the ruins and a desperate fight when an incursion goes south. The PCs ending up under siege as they try to collect up the valuable stuff and make sure the enemy doesn’t get anything dangerous to the PCs.
