FTDM Preview - Vault of the Spider Queen





Here is a sneak peek at my upcoming Fourthcore Team Deathmatch map I've been working on recently.


I'm still tweaking the rule set, so there may be some changes coming to this map as I hammer everything out. Size may be an issue, but I'll leave it to playtesting to determine if this is a problem that needs addressing.

So what do you think?

And if you haven't checked out FTDM before, what are you waiting for? It's a blast!


Game on,

Rob

  1. Nice! Can't wait to play on it! One suggestion...do you think you could add a sacrificial drow ranger to that altar in the middle?

    1. Well the altar is the starting location for the Egg of Lolth, an artifact that confers vulnerability but allows for the scoring of additional points for killing your enemies.

      That said, drow rangers definitely deserve their come-up-pance.

  4. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune and HP Lovecraft's Under the Pyramids.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please let me know your email, and what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy. You can email me (news@apolitical.info) or reply to this thread.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.

    Yours,
    James.

    1. I'm sorry, but I can't help you. Writting reviews is outside my comfort zone and beyond the purview of this blog.

    2. No problem. Thanks anyway.

      Yours,
      James.
