Welcome to the Monthly Map Melee sponsored by the Worldbuilding community where you have the chance to win over 50 steem just by drawing a simple map. The goal of this contest is to help Game Masters from all Tabletop RPG genres to fill up a portfolio of fun and easy to produce maps while simultaneously introducing steemit to one of the most time-consuming parts of the game, world-building. While this can also be one of the most rewarding aspects of the game, it often goes unsung. The bard will sing many tales of the party’s glory but never of the GM’s. And, damn it, you deserve some recognition for your hard work. We know how many maps are never seen. We have burnt that same midnight oil. We know the pain, but more importantly, we know the pleasure of this hobby and want to spread it to more people in the world.

A good example is the Water World. Good movie.

Thank you for the very nice entry. I really love the 3D perspective to the map! I'm a big fan of the illusionary water in the fountain.

Thanks. I also wanted to leave a lot of open space for DMs to fill as they like. Thought about clay golems guarding some doors, for instance.

Also, if the tomb is ancient enough, it could have seen a lot of change. Inhabitants, pilgrims, other inhabitants...
