I drew up a pretty cool map using only pieces that I own. Obviously by looking at my .sig, those of you who have access to the MM beta know it's missing a lot of those pieces, so I improvized in a few places. Anyone want to see the results?

I couldn't do that, but I will post the image once I've cropped it and have a good "key" for it.

Okay, let me see if I can remember what I used... Firstly, most large floor areas are in fact whole 2x3 or 3x3 tile sections or the new floor tiles unless indicated otherwise.

Secondly, this will probably form the backbone of WGH4 Tombs of the Howling Hills, so while it's anybody's for the taking, please respect that it's going in to a self-published module in the future.

1. Entrance

2. 2x3 Ruined Floor tile. The rounded alcove across the room holds treasure/magic items/clues etc.

3. 2x1 Sarcophagus - "the tomb of the King".

4 & 5 - I have an extra set of Round Corners; that's what those are - not squared off corners. The other two are on the far end of the area numbered 10; the four that come with WA are to the south, just north of the curved passage.

6. Ogre's den. Houses dungeon's "boss monster"

7. 2x2 new Floor Tile. Not sure if it's the well or the pentagram; both work in a tomb setting.

8. Center of the room is 3x3 tile from WA-II.
9. Same as #8
10. 2x3 from WA.
11 & 12. - Curved Passages from WA
13. Demon Arch from WA.
14. & 15. Trap Corners from Traps! set. #14 is particularly fiendish because a pile of leaden coins, washed with pyrite, lies tantalizingly close, around the corner. Also a heap of tarnished armor with Nystul's Magic Aura on it sits in the pile as well. However the corner is trapped with one of the swinging traps! (probably the blade trap; I rather like that one but don't use it often). 15 is probably going to be a single swinging spike trap.

The long walls come from WA-II; the long walls just to the south of the corners marked #4 and #5 are both Mermaid Fountains (one from WA-II, the other is a spare). The long hallway between #11 and #12 is the "bricked alcove" hallway from WA. The other long halls are the unadorned ones from the Master Builder's set (and I'm sure you can all espy some other MB pieces througout the maze).

This is not, by far, everything I have but with the exception of Traps-II, it uses parts from every set* - and the exclusion of a Traps-II indication doesn't mean I won't include it in the final map. There's more to come to the south of the large "temple area" with the fountains and so forth - most of that will be done with Cavernous Passages and the Cavern Set. I own a single example of all three dungeon accessory packs, and a few other small odds and ends to decorate the whole affair with.

If I get around to building this beast would anyone care to see photos of that?

Whew, that's impressive! Man, it is tempting to put something like that together.

One of these days I'm going to take out everything I have and put it together in one massive dungeon....

Heya TDD;

Excellent map. Now I am drooling for the finished mapmaker software to be made available. That will make for an excellent addon for the DF scenery.

GhengisSka,

The Map Maker has Sci-Fi Starter and Corridors in the Beta... So that is already Available, and Hopefully the Final release will Include new Floors as well...

DungeonDelver,

I Like the Lay-out... Only thing I Do not like about the Beta is that it is a Bit Awkward to Get stuff to Line up properly, And of Course you can not rotate Pieces by less than 90 degrees... Kewl Set up though, and I Really think that DF needs to Make this available to everyone...

DarkFather,

Part of the "Agreement" when we Signed up for the Beta Testing, was that we could not "Share" the Link... Sorry...
