Dude, this map is just the way i like it; Large, complex, keeps the players guessing, and FORCE THEM TO TAKE SOME MAP NOTES! I mean, I love it when the game goes smooth, but having players go in and out without taking notice of a map I spent hours on... You should take some consideration to priorsand particulars, though. Why was the dungeon made? What was its purpose? Knowing the cause behind the creation of the dungeon gives the architecture a rational and REAL look. Not just another dungeon level 1 with random rooms and traps. Aslo, start using rulers for walls and inventory. Gives it all a professional look. Still, kudos for your work. Keep mapping!

OMG dude, you have out done yourself here. you run an awesome site, and i would like you to know that i do appreciate the hard work you have invested so other dms dont have too. in addition, i was wondering if there is a way to send premade maps to you so they can be posted?

Wow i\'ve been playing D&D for about 10 years now and i have never seen something this complacated that was not randomly computer generated and this is hand drawn which is even more impressive. one thing i want to point out to OutCider is that this looks more like a cavern then a man buit complex and about using rulers i\'ve never seen a perfectly squared off cavern thet are not right angles they are natural. i rate this map 9.9 out of 10.

You may be intrigued to know that I drew this map about 20-years ago...

its like a god send i goodled maps to help get some ideas (i have trouble making maps) and when i saw this it was beyond anything i could have asked for. being an inexperienced DM, it is always a great gift, and also a learning experience to see such well made maps to me, you are an inspiration to up and coming role players, please keep up the good work

I agree with Outcider. The edges are all wobbly. And if you're trying to make it a cavern, draw it like a cavern! But overall, nice big dungeon map. I'll give it a 6

Heh... reminds me of maps I used to draw in my youth... *tears* Ahh, the good old days. Now, I spend so much of my time trying to get the players to play nice, I don't have the patience for extensive mapping anymore. Oh well, I guess that's why we are all here thanking you now, eh?

Whoa... not as complicated as my largest, but it sure is huge. i could nevr think of enough stuff to put in there. Probably because im not familiar with it...

I like it. For a one lvl dungeon it has a nice layout and you can tweak it here and there to fit your game. I've got a few maps i'm working on and there are some points on here I saw that I hadn't thought of using before. When I'm done with my one lvl labyrinth I'll see what I can't do about getting it posted.
