I like it!! That elevated portion with the arch from the lake expansion set (or is it rivers, I forget) looks fantastic! Having changing elevation adds to the realism of the environment. The only thing I may suggest is to add a bit of the water pieces, maybe a couple banks and add the free standing wall on the water side. Kind of gets the feeling of being flooded.
I love the old resin cavern line, it still has no equal in my opinion.

Cavernous Lair

Post by realarete » Sun Sep 02, 2018 9:29 am

Prepping for our next session, I wanted to share the initial sketch and then possible cave layout - Any feedback welcome! I have Resin cave sets and a couple pcs of dwarvenite to work with. Usually I draw out the caves, then try to construct the map using the DF cavern pcs. In this scenario, the adventurers find an Old Mill (ruined) and delve into the flooded basement level. There is a small underground catacomb area a ways off beneath some outworks buildings, and these two areas are joined by some natural caverns, now a foul lair, and exposed due to some flooding and collapsing ... The cavernous portion follows:
