Here’s another section of the Ground Level of the Demon Palace of the Magician Wat-Thekres. Altogether, there’ll be four sections for the ground level. After that, there’s something like 6 to 8 more maps before this monster is complete.
Second part of The Demon Palace of the Magician Wat-Thekres.
If I remember right, when I started drawing this, I was inspired by P. Craig Russel’s version of the ruins of Alkmeenon from has comic adaptation of Robert E. Howards “The Servants of Bit-Yakin” titled The Jewels of Gwahlur. (seen below)

It felt, despite being mostly abandoned, a living, breathing location where any number of mysteries and adventures could be encountered.
So here’s part two of the map! Beneath it, you’ll also find a compiled version of the entire map as it is thus far.

Here is a preview of a book I’m putting together based upon my (only) popular post: Thieves’ Guild Built in the Subterranean Ruin of [Insert Generic Anthropomorphic Urban Rodent God of Your Choice]’s Temple.

(This started at as a way to practice layout while working on Southfarthing Confidential but looked good enough I figured that it’d be a great idea to publish it.)
Anyway, I’m deep in layout, drawing, and writing and wanted to give you a preview, so here it is:
Sometimes, you just need another dungeon. So, here’s another dungeon:
