Modular Dungeon finished

Marking this project as complete. Finally. What started as a fit of inspiration after finding a bunch of left over faux-stone vinyl tiles during a basement clean up is now a fairly well-accessorized modular dungeon, complete with dank, dark halls, cramped junctions, a King’s Crypt, a Library, a Dwarf Tomb, a Treasure Room, and a […]

What Darkness Hides – Interlude

THE CATACOMBS OF UMBRA John was unable to attend last night’s session so there was a quick interlude as Sergeant Dobrescu led the rest of the party into the the catacombs beneath the fortress of Ochi Vanat.

Dungeon Party and New Characters

DUNGEON PARTY I have this hobby tic, this obsession with skirmish squads, adventuring parties, salvage crews, cyberpunk gangs, shadow-ops teams… I get a kick out of hunting down miniatures, matching aesthetics, regardless of manufacturer, to come up with a cool troop for whatever scenario had fired my imagination.

Tharnulf’s Crypt – Part 2
