Ancient City – Palace Ruins Board
“We found it, just where we were told we would: In the most remote corner of the kingdom in the midst of an inhospitable swamp on the shore of a dead calm lake covered in mist: The remains of the ancient city state of […]. We had heard tales about the place, but when we stood before its remarkably preserved walls, the place seemed even more eerie than any elder’s drivel could paint it.”
I started working on this many months ago, I’d do it differently if I started with it nowadays, but I’ll leave it as it is.
It is another location in my game world: The remains of a royal palace, that dates back over two millennia. A cataclysm and a great tragedy sealed its fate long ago, but for some reason, no new settlements arose nearby, no stones were robbed from the site.
But the ancients not only build sturdy walls with a high quality mortar receipe, they also left curses and hostile guardians behind. A few -more or less lucky- grave robbers tried to loot the ruins with mixed success… how will your heroes fare?
There are several entrances to underground structures around this upper ground map, which I build as separate maps and may upload in the future.
