Built by rebel priests of Amon-Gorloth, this dungeon was constructed and adapted from existing caverns following dreams they claim are channelled from Amon-Gorloth itself – making them a twisted and nightmarish version of the convoluted mausoleums under the desert sands where Amon-Gorloth sleeps and dreams. Of course, the “real” priests of Amon-Gorloth had already created the Deep Halls following the sleeping god’s plans, and neither can agree that the other can possibly be right (although both incorporate similar entryways and a mix of caves and finished masonry). But Amon-Gorloth dreams of madness and cares not for those who try to translate dreams into dungeons, and has already forgotten both of these strange cults…
There are multiple versions of the map to download, all of which are too big to show on the blog (each is about 10 megs in size) which you can download through the following links:
The “Old Style” version uses the grey grid, old-school stair markers, and lack of shadows so it matches up in style with the Original Halls of Amon Gorloth which I posted eight years ago.
For the original Halls of Amon-Gorloth, Michael Prescott did a colour-coded depth map which we included with the final release. I’ve reproduced his work here using the “Old Style” map (so you can see how it uses simpler markers to feel like the original). This reference map is only available at 300dpi.
The 1200 dpi versions of the map were drawn at a scale of 300 pixels per square and are 25,200 pixels (84 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 recommended 10′ squares) – so resizing it to either 5,880 pixels wide or 11,760 pixels wide, respectively.

Heya, great maps, but it looks like the download links do not work? I’m getting 404 — File not found.

Weird, I just tried all three both with my account and then again in an anonymous browser tab (in case I was seeing them because of my user privileges) and all three loaded.
Yeah, I’ve tried FF, Edge, Chrome and still 404. It sends me for example to: https://rpgcharacters.files.wordpress.com/2023/05/amon-gorloth-2-oldschool-1200dpi.png and nothing.
I’ll poke someone else to see if it’s only on my end or not. Thanks for checking.
Had to use VPN, looks like these three files are not accessible from Czech Republic. Tested across three different ISPs. Even thou any older stuff is.

I cannot get them either, from Germany. Well.
I like the use of color.
