Dolmenwood: Blackeswell Village Map

As I mentioned in my "looking forward into 2019" post at the start of this month, there are two new Dolmenwood adventures in the works. I posted a preview of the cover art for one of them -- Winter's Daughter -- last week. Now it's time for a visual preview of the other -- The Fungus That Came To Blackeswell.

This adventure takes place in the village of Blackeswell, shortly after a fungal apocalypse has hit. So I knew that an exterior map of the village -- showing all of the fungal weirdness that's overrun the place -- would be essential to both carrying the creepy vibe of the adventure, and as a visual aid for the referee and players.

After seeing a previous village map of his, I commissioned the fabulous Spaghetti Quester to tackle this daunting and slimy task. I received the final version of the map this week.

  1. Such detail!
    Also, you weren't kidding when you said "fungal apocalypse".

    1. Haha, indeed! It seems the most appropriate phrase!

  2. Didn't you write a similar adventure for another publisher along these lines?

    As for the art, I feel sorry for the people in that village!

    1. This adventure was written by Yves Geens and published under the Psychedelic Fantasies imprint some years back. That's probably what you're thinking of. The new version is significantly expanded and updated. (And has like maps and art and stuff.)

    2. Okay. Didn't you write for that line as well? I think that was the first time I encountered your name, Gavin. Under the Dome or something similar?

    3. Yeah, my adventure Within The Radiant Dome also appeared in the Psychedelic Fantasies line. Yves Geens is a personal friend of mine (he used to play in my gaming group), hence the connection :)
