The Wreck of the Goodwife by torstan The Wreck of the Goodwife by torstan
This was created as a personal piece, but it got picked up by open design and has appeared on the back cover of Kobold Quarterly #13 and as a map pack on the KQ site. The pack can be found here: [link] and contains the map in a multi-page pdf that can be printed out at home as well as the full size image at 100px per grid.

I actually have this map printed out on the wall at home. I really like it, but my players were a little less convinced when a kraken rose from the depths...

This is currently on show in the Terra Incognita Gallery Show. You can find the print listing here: [link]

Thanks :) It was an interesting challenge figuring out how best to map a finale for a big adventure my players were heading for. Of course, now they'll never set foot on a ship again...

Always had an idea for a shipwreck off the coast, with about 3-levels. At the bottom would be a giant octopus with its huge tentacles sticking through the bottom. Might get the nerve to map it one day, would take alot of drawing....

There's a reason why that broken ship on the sea floor is big enough to hide a kraken...

I'd love to see your take on a shipwreck.

This must be awesome as a print! Do squares make a singular move of the player?
Reply

torstan Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011
Each square is 5' - so that helps to adjudicate moves.

Yep - it's a good size for a game. When printed out it's 1 inch per square.

Of course! And what would a kraken hide in, if not inside the wreck of an enormous ship. Glad you're enjoying both types of art :)

Well, maybe inside the wreck of a giant dirigible, if it was an air kraken.

I agree that it's very cool. I can't imagine my D&D party living long enough to have an encounter there though. ;)

Thanks - actually you'd be surprised how early a party can take on underwater adventuring. All you really need are a couple of potions of waterbreathing and some really heavy boots.

Yep, I struggled to find one - which I why I ended up making this one from scratch.

Yep, I pretty much threw everything at this one. It made for a fun battlemap to play on too. The spurs of rocks and towers of seaweed for cover. It was a fun finale.

I'd had this finale scene in my head for a while. I finally got round to creating the map to go with it and it really stretched my ideas of what I wanted to do. I developed a lot of new tricks while working on this. The most interesting part was trying to get the colour palette right.

Thanks for the compliments. I hope it comes in handy in your games!
