Today, I present a partial cross-section of Ziqquratu Ziyaret. This map depicts the long and arduous route to the Treacherous Heart and the Vaults of Cryptic Gloom. Therein lies Ruined Shibolaanth, the dead city of the therapsidians. Woe be to those who venture to this accursed place.


Please note that this map is exceptionally incomplete. Not depicted are virtually miles upon miles of unlit passages, broad halls, and cavernous vaults. One could spend a lifetime exploring the labyrinthine ways of Ziqquratu Ziyaret. Alas, it would most likely be a short lifetime, for the fauna of this place are particularly unwholesome.

  3. @ze bulette: Actually, it's not. It's the aurora borealis. I'm a sucker for the northern lights.

  4. In my childhood I lived where you could see the northern lights at night...I kinda wish I had been into psychedelics back then...

    BLACK ZIGGURATS!

  5. "Vaults of Cryptic Gloom"?

    Dow, you are a pop artist. You're the Warhol of dungeon cross-sections.

    I love this in ways I cannot begin to say.

  6. I was just looking at the cross-section again and Celtic Frost started playing in my head...
