The Temple of Trials (Free Map)

Death or Glory Awaits

Temple of TrialsAn ancient cult once constructed a deep underground stronghold. A place to gather and worship dark gods, and test their bodies, minds, and faith. The dangerous trial often resulted in the painful deaths of the devout, and the weak were weeded out of their ranks while the strong survived. Power and wealth awaits those strong enough to brave them. While the cult itself has long since vanished, the Temple remains as do the dangerous traps and trials that may challenge the brave, and destroy the reckless and unprepared.

The Temple of Trials is a sprawling 45 room dungeon in an OSR style. Ready to stock with all manner of traps and deadly monsters.

The Temple of Trials can be found HERE.

Coming out of Hibernation

I apologize for the long silence. 2018 thoroughly kicked my ass, and 2019 hasn’t fared much better. Its now March and I’m slowly starting to pull my self back into the light.

A lot has changed for me these last few months, and I’ve been forced into an adjustment period that I had not been prepared for. Relationship and personal issues did a number on me, but it has probably been the recent loss of my best friend which hit me the hardest.

John was a wonderful man, and one of my biggest supporters. His passing was a significant impact on all who loved him, and I miss him every day. He was a friend to many, a loving husband, son, and brother. His love and passion of gaming and rpgs, brought him into the lives of many. He gave encouragement when I needed it, never failing to provide feedback, praise or constructive criticism. John inspired everyone around him to their best, and not a day passes where I don’t think of him..

 

Both as a coping mechanism, and an escape. I have pushed myself back into my work. Behind the scenes I have putting together a map pack geared toward users of virtual tabletop software. The first pack will be released before the end of the month and will be available on Drivethrurpg. More info on this release will be

Library_Dark_Scene_v01

revealed soon. I will continue to release free maps to the public, but they may be less frequent as other projects take up my time.

I have also produced a couple maps for a Dungeon Master’s Guild release. I can’t say much as I’m under a NDA. I will be sure to let you all know when they announce the release.

Last but not least, I have begun working on a short adventure for 5e, that is being written in memory of my friend John. I plan to release it when complete to Drivethrurpg.com with 100% of the proceeds going to his wife and family. I will give more details on this project soon.

Thank you to all of you who have been following my work. I wouldn’t be here without each and every one of you.

 

Map of the Week #10

Forest2AD“So ye made it through the boneyard and into the forest beyond. Well done, but I warn ye, the dangers here are not quite so pleasant as the restless dead. Things lurk in the dark places. No flesh or bone to bit at ye, they with grasp at you with long shadowy fingers. If ye luck hold out then maybe you will only be killed. Death is by far the most merciful thing that can happen in this dreaded place. Many of those who enter the forest never leave. Instead they join the spirits of the dead, bound to feed ever upon the living.”

The Forbidden Forest

Forest2The latest map offering from Triple Moon Games is The Forbidden Forest. A place in the shadow of the accursed graveyard. Few dare enter, and none have yet escaped. Can you escape the grasping claws of the restless dead?

These Maps are available HERE. In both Game Master and Player Versions. Download them and take your players on a jaunt into a forest haunted by shadowy things or whatever nightmares your imagination may conjure up!

June Update

Death of Winter

34307215_749159412140013_9084793989336399872_nThe rough draft for my first module is complete. Coming in at 153 handwritten pages. It pretty much filled a single composition book, and I look forward to going back and revising it. I will put the project aside for a week or so before I start the second draft, this way I can come back to it with a fresh perspective.

There is still a LOT of work to put into it, but am pretty pleased with how it came out. I look forward to sharing bits of it after it is polished a bit more.

After the second draft is complete I will begin organizing a playtest for those who might be interested in helping me to improve this project.

Map of the Week

I had put a lot of time into the first draft of Death of Winter, this along with working on a commissioned map gave me little time to put into producing my weekly maps. Now that the first draft is complete I plan to continue work on these maps. Look for the return of them in the next week or two. I will have a large number of maps to make for my module, so I may release versions of these as free maps and previews (killing 2 birds with one stone.)

Veyrn Campaign Setting

MellenialKingdomThis is a huge project and one I haven’t had the time to put as much effort into as I would like. As the project grew I realized I could not do it justice in a single book. I therefore have decided to do each major area of the world as its own text. The first of these will be the Kingdom of Zayre, known as “The Millennial Kingdom” This central nation will provide a solid entry to Veyrn. I have pages and pages and pages of notes on the setting I just need to start planning out the actual book and begin writing it. As with death of winter I look forward to sharing more as I get things more or less nailed down.

I will provide more detail on TMK in a future update.

 

Map of the Week #8

Regional Map #1

Regional1

Free for Personal Use.

Still waiting on the poll results for my next dungeon map (though looks like its going to be a “spooky graveyard”) so I thought I’d do something different for this week’s map. So I present to you a small regional map I put together. It would make for a great starting point for a new campaign or just a new area for experienced characters to enjoy.

This map, along with the rest can be found Here.

I hope you enjoy it!

Map of the Week #6

ChurchAD“Why should I care what you or the gods care about my choices. My will is my own and I will not be swayed by your protests.” He looked at the priestess, her expression never faltering. 

“My child I do not ask more of you than you should ask of yourself. Who but the gods can know what resides within your heart. You should not be too hasty in your actions. What good will vengeance bring, that forgiveness cannot do better?” She looked so calm and at peace, the flowing white and gold of her robe, and long dark hair, made her look more than human. She seemed almost divine herself, an angelic being. So secure in her faith and sheltered by the love of the gods.

She watched him as he considered her words. He looked back at her and smiled. “I guess we shall see.” He plunged the dagger deep into her chest, the white silk of her robed dyed by the deep crimson of her blood. “May the gods forgive my sins.”

The Church

This weeks map is a large church or temple. It was actually inspired by an actual church in a city near me, and was sketched out by my fiance so that I could turn it into a map. As always I’ve posted both player and game master versions of the map.

Both of these can be found HERE.

Adulting is Hard / New Project

Somebody has a case of the Mondays

So as you’ve probably already noticed there was no new map this week. My work schedule has had me working many early shifts which have decreased the time I’ve been free to work on my maps. I do plan to resume posting them next Monday, so check back here then, for my next free map.

Project Update

As you’ve likely seen on this website I’ve been working on a campaign setting for 5e called Veyrn. This project is still in the works, though I’ve realized how large the project really is, and am considering breaking it into smaller chunks based in the various regions of the world. This will likely just be for play test purposes. The first of these is tentatively titled “The Millennial Kingdom” and will be focused on the nation of Zayre. Zayre is a human dominated nation in the center of the continent of Reghal, and contains more of the traditional fantasy elements one would expect with 5e, with a few surprises. It will contain new maps, lore, backgrounds, domains, a new race, monsters and other goodies to sink your teeth into.

New Adventure

My frequent early shifts at work has altered my sleep schedule, and currently I’m awake by 3 or 4am, whether I like it or not. This has given me a little time in the morning to write. I dusted off a composition book and went old school, plotting it out entirely by hand. Little by little its been coming along, and I’m currently up to about 40 handwritten pages (likely less when typed and formatted)., and only about 1/4 of the way through the adventure.

The adventure is set in the kingdom of Zayre and tentatively called The Death of Winter. Based in and around the village of Dynesdale. It is written for 1st level characters, and focuses heavily on roleplaying and exploration. Given the plan to focus the first major playtest release on the setting of this adventure it will likely replace Secret of the Misty Vale as my my first official release, preceding the setting material itself. While set in Veyrn, I am intentionally limiting some of the more setting specific content so that it can be run in most any setting with very little work. Stay tuned for more updates as this project progresses.

Thank You!

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who has seen and enjoyed my maps. My maps have been well received and I hope all those who have downloaded and used them found them to be a great addition to their games. So thank you all, I wouldn’t be here without you!

Map of the Week #5

TheButchersDungeonAD“He woke in agony, his skull ached and pulse pounded in his veins. Looking around he saw only darkness. The air was foul with the scent of rot and death. Jumping to his feet he feverishly ran his hands along the wall, looking for a means to escape. He found a doorknob was it was locked tight. Pounding his fist against the door, he screamed for help. The only reply was the sound of a rusty blade running down the wall. Drawing closer and closer, he froze there was no escape from the Butcher….”

The Butcher’s Dungeon

Map of the Week #3

The Farmhouse

FarmhouseBarnADThis weeks map is a small farmhouse. Ready for a small family of diabolical peasants or other such miscreants or perhaps a nice wholesome family devoid of any evil or ill intent to your party of brave adventurers.

The GM and Player maps can be found HERE.

Updates

I’ve been working on some improvements to the maps, particularly the text boxes. Right now they are just plain transparent boxes where GMs can input their own information to suit their needs. I’m working on improving these by added parchment boxes I’ve made in GIMP. I was hoping to have this update ready for this week, but the holiday has taken up some free time. This new update should be applied to my next map, and if well received, added to all of them going forward.
