The minds of the things that reach out from the far realms are impossible to understand. Thus it is with Yivh’Kthaloth who reaches out to those that seek guidance and order in the face of chaos and madness. This eternal being craves order in disorder – it impresses those it touches to build structures of contained chaos. Nonsensical structures, mazes, labyrinths, and follies.
This maze is one such structure. Impressed into reality by maddening dreams, a massive maze that is home to Yivh’Kthaloth’s many “gifts” to their followers – gifts yet unclaimed within these twisting halls.
Because of the ridiculous size of this piece, WordPress has a few… ISSUES… dealing with it. Thus the B&W version above doesn’t link directly to the high resolution version. Instead there is a zip file with two versions of the maze – 300 dpi & 600 dpi versions. Normally I draw at 300 pixels per square, but these are at 75 pixels per square for the 300 dpi and 150 pixels per square for the 600 dpi.

I love this kind of thing. My players, not so much. 😉

It might be linked with how mazes don’t really work at the tabletop. Especially ones that operate at a ‘tactical’ scale, (immense ones you can more easily get away with abstracting most of the movement into things like attribute or skill checks).
I like the attribute/skill check idea. Turns it into theatre of the mind 🙂

Damn. It didn’t keep my formatting. ‘Dropped’ was supposed to be on the following line after ‘just’. That’s what I get for trying to be creative.
I also love this maze. I’m not sure how I would run it in a game though – it’s a hard map to draw as you go :). I like the description just a much!
