Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures Maps

Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures

 

I am planning to include a zero-level character funnel with the Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures campaign guide I am currently writing (please see previous posts for more detail).  So far, I have created the maps for the character funnel.  Using a drawing tablet, digital pen, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator, I set out to capture the artistic flavour of the maps found in the Goodman Games adventure books.  The three maps I designed feature traditional 2D dungeon maps, with 3D features drawn on top of the maps.

Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures Art: Part 5

Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures

 

I have completed a new batch of pencil-and-paper drawings for the Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures source book; a project I am currently working on.  The source book builds on the DCC Eastern Adventures campaign guide I wrote back in 2017, which is available on the DCC Eastern Adventures website.   The new illustrations feature drawings of seven monsters that will appear in this book.

Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures Redux

Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures

 

The Dungeon Crawl Classics Eastern Adventures Redux website has launched.  This website is the companion site for the upcoming Dungeon Crawl Classics (DCC) Eastern Adventures source book, which builds upon a campaign guide I wrote back in 2017.  The aim of the source book is to provide Judges (Game Masters) with materials and resources to run an Eastern themed DCC campaign.

Zero-Level Character Sheet (single sheet)

 

Zero-Level Character Sheets.  The character sheets were designed in Photoshop using a drawing tablet and pen.  My goal in designing the character sheets was to create a hand-drawn ‘old school’ look for the character sheets, akin to the sketches one might find in the margins of character sheets and game books from years gone by.
