About This Class

In the early days of tabletop role playing (TTRPG), the only way to develop new dungeon maps was to draw your own. What was born from necessity has now become recognized as a kind of throwback art. The appeal and revere of a hand-drawn, rustic looking old school dungeon map has never waned. In fact, it is experiencing something of a revival. Whether you are interested in creating rustic, old school dungeon maps for the TTRPG publishing community (a thriving billion-dollar industry), or simply for your own personal fantasy roleplaying campaigns, this class is for you.
