Map Drawing Series
This series gives you an behind the scenes look at not only how I do the loose, architectural style battle map sketches for the Classic_DM Show, but a look inside the thought process of spatial level design when applied to the classic Advanced Dungeons & Dragons modules, known for limited detail and vague room descriptions.
These videos cover how to take a blank, empty 1 square = 10’-0” scale map from 1st Edition and bring it alive as a full blow battle map. Battle maps use 1” = 5’-0” which is preferred for the use of 28mm miniatures. Using only a 18” x 24” board, a roll of 18” canary yellow Bienfang bumwad,, and three line weights via Sharpies, we sketch out details that have a huge effect on the combat and playable space of each room.
