Jörðgarð Map of Week #195 - Herder & Spider Draug Encounter

edited March 2015 in Maps and Symbols

The 195th Map of the Week is a battlemap scenario from the Jörðgarð (TM) adventure "Too Many Clues" that shows the first part of an encounter with a herder draug and it spider draugs. Both are types of undead in the Jörðgarð campaign setting. Neither type can survive daylight. Thus, the need underground shelters for the daylight hours. The upper view shows a tower ruin and the ruined foundation of an old building. If a PC group were to explore the tower ruin, it would find an underground tunnel leading to the still intact cellar of the building ruin, where the herder draug and its spider draugs lair by day.

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