Map Drawing Tutorial 7: The Blasphemous Mine
I like maps to tell a story, and I like them to have little details that draw you in. In this particular map I play with a few techniques to produce something a bit different, a mine that has dug into something that was better left alone. Perhaps a lost underground shrine has been revealed and the miners were killed, or perhaps the miners converted to become cultists for the blasphemous forgotten spirit.
The basic details from this mine are inspired from some mineshafts and underground ruins I explored a few years ago...before you ask, I didn't see a strange occult shrine down there...It's probably inspired a bit by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as well.
