MAPS: Starter Rulebook

An abandoned watchpost stands across a pool from an ancient underground fortress.

Flooded Ruins
The remains of an ancient dwarven city now lie partially submerged ni an enormous cavern.  A pair of teleporters allows unexpected maneuvers.

Jungle Temple
The forest is reclaiming an ancient, blood-soaked altar of the yuan-ti.

Crossroads and Monster Lair
