Today’s Worldbuilding Wednesday is a special one, I’m excited to say…today’s prompt comes complete with a map for setting the scene! With spooky season nearing the big day, it seemed a good time to think about harvest festivals, and what they might look like in my worlds. In the Ahran Archives, a series I’ll be […]Read More Worldbuilding Wednesday: Harvest Festival
Happy Tasty Tuesday all! Since it’s autumn here in the northern hemisphere, I’ve had harvest-time foods on my mind. Pumpkin bread, heart stews, spiced cider…all sorts of goodies that I associate with the time of year and all it brings. And of course, I can’t help but think about the various regions of Ahra, and […]Read More Tasty Tuesday: Harvest Goodies
An ancient stone building in a sleepy autumnal forest is donned in festive lanterns and carved pumpkins, torches and braziers alight. Inside awaits a sumptuous feast, the small but pristine hall alight with radiance. Yet nobody attends the feast, and a heavy silence hangs over the building and surrounding woods. What is this place?

With Spooky Season upon us, I wanted to create a few autumnal, harvest-time maps that contain elements of mystery. These 25 x 25 maps are perfect for scene setting, or as battle maps, and as usual each has a prompt to go along with it–because hey, sometimes we need an encounter on the go! Today’s […]Read More Map Monday: Strange Festivities

Food is not just life, it can add life to a manuscript and draw readers into a fully immersive experience. All of […]Read More Tasty Tuesday: To Market!

Holidays all over the world have special foods that accompany them, sometimes recipes and traditions passed down over the generations. When crafting a world–gaming, writing, or otherwise–thinking about your characters’ sustenance is important. What sorts of crops […]Read More Worldbuilding Wednesday: Let’s Eat!
Hail, adventurers! Today is freezing (actually, far below freezing at a balmy -6 F), and I find myself thinking a LOT about the coming warmer weather. While I may not exactly long for the parched desert conditions of the map I’ll be sharing today, it felt nice to create a scene drenched in summer sun! […]Read More #MapMonday: Broken Caravan Encounter
Hello, all! This week’s prompt will be the first of many to come. I’ll be cross-posting the prompts that accompany the maps I share on Inkarnate for those who prefer to find all pertinent links on one centralized page. This week’s dungeon is a simple 25×25 gridded battle-map (no-grid version also available) featuring a rather […]Read More This Week’s Map Prompt: Lightning Dungeon
Well hello, all! My first blog post of 2021, and it’s about free stuff–that’s the way to start out a year! 🙂 I’ve recently become obsessed with mapmaking. I have uploaded a new and improved Ahra world map and Tanahr country map (made in Wonderdraft), and Tanahr’s capital, Easthaven, has a new map courtesy of […]Read More Free Gaming Maps!
