I’m excited to present my contribution of auxiliary maps, artwork (including NPC artwork and tokens), shop cards, and point-of-interest cards for Storm Lord’s Wrath. Storm Lord’s Wrath is a deceptively large adventure with quite a few encounters – and each could use its own map. Well, I’m here to help! As usual, this post is full of spoilers for the Storm Lord’s Wrath adventure. Do not proceed if you are planning to be a player in this adventure!
This is definitely my largest D&D post yet with 17 maps, over 20 monster/creature image and token sets, over 20 NPC image and token sets, 7 new point-of-interest cards (and some customization for existing Phandalin ones), and a handful of other fun pieces of artwork.
As to not bury the leads – here are links to all of the available downloads.
Storm’s Moving In
This is a simple roadside battle map with the environment as I envisioned it from the description.
Something Fishy In Town
This is the largest battle map of this adventure, and it takes place in Leilon. The players are asked to start far away from a summoning ritual. This allows rounds to be consumed as the ritual completes. I tried my best to be faithful to the main Leilon map’s layout when creating this map, and I’m pleased with the results.
This is another larger battle map with some exciting elevation changes out of the swamp. That said, the monsters on this map are mostly water-bound, and as such, the majority of the encounter is likely to take place in the lower third of this map. However, Idol Island is an interesting place, so there may be other opportunity to visit this map!
Mere of Dead Men
For the players, the Mere of Dead Men can be a real trudge. Depending on how they roll, they could face quite a few encounters in the swamp. I’m really surprised this adventure didn’t come with at least one generic map to handle all of these encounters! I’ve created a special version of the swamp map for each of the encounters that they may face!
Goat Check & Hungry Ogres
As one might expect, the players’ journey to Phandalin doesn’t go as smoothly as hoped. I’ve added a couple of maps for the Goat Check and Hungry Ogres encounters that the players may experience on their trip. The Goat Check map, while simple, is very large so you can have goats go running in every-which direction.
Foul Weather at Wayside
As the players journey back to the Wayside Inn, the weather turns foul. This is a simple roadside map with the rain effect for the type of encounters the players will experience as they approach the Wayside Inn again.
Travel to the Thunder Cliffs
The journey moves to the seas as the players head toward the Thunder Cliffs. I’ve created a number of maps for the multi-level ship that the players use for their journey (these maps can serve as either the Dancing Delight or Ice Floe). In addition, there is a rowboat map for the players final approach to the Thunder Cliffs and the interesting encounters there!
Bonus: Visit to the Plane of Water
This is a very simple map in case a player or party are teleported to the Plane of Water when they stumble into the “blow hole” in the Thunder Cliffs. A benevolent DM may even give them a way to get back!
Shop & Point of Interest Cards
For Storm Lord’s Wrath, I did cards for a few encounters and points of interest in addition to just shops. I think there were a few unique and fun opportunities where it made sense to throw up a card to help the players visualize the NPCs and environments.
As this adventure also sees a return to Phandalin, I’ve updated some of the Phandalin cards to be in line with the context of this adventure.
Monster & Creature Artwork/Tokens
Like any good adventure, Storm Lord’s Wrath has a variety of interesting monsters and creatures! However, I was sad to discover that some of my favorites don’t already have corresponding artwork. Here’s a few of my favorites and the artwork I created for them.
I also created artwork for a number of the more mundane creatures that were missing artwork. If you need some artwork for snakes, pirates, cultists of Talos, etc., here you go!
And, of course, we have tokens created for all of the monster artwork.
Storm Lord’s Wrath has a pretty sizable cast of NPCs. Here’s artwork and tokens for like all of them.
Finally, to go along with the adventure, I felt inspired with a few scenes to add a few bits of extra artwork!
