Jörðgarð Map of the Week #287 - Dragon Encounter

The 287th Map of the Week is the last in the dragon þurí's lair. The battlemap is from the second Jörðgarð (TM) Trails adventure on the Fallen Empire Trail, "Draug Hunters." This week's map shows the cave where þurí lairs.

þurí's lair is 25 feet/7.5 meters deep in treasure … items and coins of gold and silver and many other items of great value. Like Tolkien's Smaug, she can swim through her treasure and does so at times for pure pleasure. When the PCs first enter her cave, þurí will be partly covered by treasure. If the PCs enter her lair – escorted or not – þurí at first will be much more interested in learning who they are, why they are there and what they want rather than in roasting or devouring them. That doubtless will come later.

The graphic abive is reduced in size. You can get the full-sized battlemap in two versions:

  1. The Fractal Mapper (TM) 8 version in FMP format, fully editable (4.2 MB) from the Jörðgarð website.

  2. As a JPG flat map of 1360 x 790 Pixels (500 KB), available from the NBOS website at:


Both versions are released for personal and commercial use under the Open Game License Version 1.0a, which you can read on the Jörðgarð website at:
