Ruins of the Claw of Sunsets - Map 1
Ruins of the Claw of Sunsets – Map 1 (300 dpi promo, no commercial license)

The Claw of Sunsets was a serpentfolk palace complex that is now mostly collapsed and overgrown – including a number of immense thorny vines / roots up to ten feet wide at their biggest that seem intent on tearing down what remains.

This is the first of three 9.5″ x 12.75″ maps (at 4 squares per inch) in the set exploring the surface ruins, and each map is then paired with a smaller 9.5″ x 7.25″ map of a dungeon area beneath that section of the ruins (the dungeons beneath this section of the ruins is reached by a set of stairs almost precisely in the centre of the map, and will be released later this week).

This portion of the ruins has almost no surviving roofing, having been torn down or collapsed long ago. The tallest wall remains are about 24 feet tall, but much of it is only a single story or so anymore. The main points of interest are the palace structures in the middle of the page with old pillars leading up to them and then the paved path “behind” the ruins with stairs up into the hill where a set of six massive ophidian statues look down on the small valley where the ruins sit.

The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 11,400 pixels (38 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 the traditional 10′ squares) – so resizing the image to either 2,660 pixels wide or 5,320 pixels wide, respectively.
