One Page Dungeon Contest - Brittlestone Parapets

Hey look the One Page Dungeon Contest just ended!  My submission, the Brittlestone Parapets, is linked below.

Honestly I'm not especially happy with it, even though it has Owlbears and killer swamp hillbillies.  It might provide a few hours of non-setting specific fun though.

Above is the Map, a overland sort of thing, showing the broken trench of the Brittlestone Parapets, where lich and wizard once battled for petty reasons. It's theoretically a land ripped by strange sorcery with looming pillars of crystal and piles of mouldering bones - but the limitations of the one page format didn't let me get the level of detail I like into it. I like the idea though, exploring old battlefields torn by the mad wars of missing warlocks/gods has a certain appeal.

Here's a link to the PDF

    1. Thanks - I very much doubt it's a winner, but it's good enough for a night's work.

  3. Yeah seriously though that's some good work.
    There's something a bit tragic and lovely about the maddened mud-covered pink crystal automaton.

  4. Thanks Dyson & Logan! I have a few ideas on how to make it better and am still struggling with full iso, but I like the way it turned out even if the composition is too heavy on the right.

    1. I like the top-down map/tribal inbred insertions, it kind of reminds me of some London maps I saw that just picked out interesting places and good coffee shops and drew them instead of the whole city.
      A kind of "here's the lay of the land, you'll probably want to pay attention to the fort and those guys with the spears".
      I just finished work and I'm ineloquent.
      Insertions good.
