Basillon, the Twin City

The great city of Basillon really was the jewel of my Caliga Valley campaign setting.

Here is another map from my Shadows of Asteron campaign. After making their way through the Spectrewood, this little town acted as a pit-stop on the PCs' trek to Basillon. While here, they made friends with a local bar keep (a former dragon slayer) and undertook a small quest to transform the eladrin lord from stone back to flesh. Once again I have included an unlabelled version for those interested.

Drysdale Keep

Acting as the starting point of my Shadows of Asteron campaign, Drysdale Keep was a fairly direct reinterpretation of Restwell Keep. In my campaign, Lord Drysdale was a bumbling incompetent fool and acted as the PCs first interaction with the Order of the Shining Horizon (a powerful campaign-spanning organization devoted to Erathis). I've included an unlabelled version of my map in case anybody wants to repurpose it for their own needs. Enjoy.

Keep on the Nine Hells Part II: Tyr Shadaar

After foiling the Asmodeus cult and destroying the infernal portal under their castle, the PCs woke up disoriented in a hellish cave. The PCs all made endurance checks to see what kind of vulnerability to fire the oppressive heat of Nessus confered on them. Before they could dwell on this dastardly mechanic, they were attacked by a vicious group of spined devils and imps.

Keep on the Nine Hells Part I: Castle Greywood

Before my Shadows of Asteron campaign, my group played in a casual campaign with rotating DMs and a rotating cast of player characters. The campaign trailed off part-way through a 2-part adventure where the PCs got transported into the heart of Nessus. It was a shame, as I thought the adventure was pretty solid (despite my struggle with DMing epic tier play). However, the allure of a shiny new low-level game was too much for me and I abandoned it. I thought I would share a brief synopsis of this adventure and pictures of what I believe to be my best (looking) encounter to date - The Infernal Gate Room.
