I added keying numbers to the Cozy Land map.

I assembled all my maps into a collection on Artstation, I was surprised by how many I drew.
I have to admit that I did that because sometime I feel like my map work is a bit under appreciated/celebrated. Probably simply because I am a bit shy and that my anxiety make it difficult for me to participate to big projects and events (like cons).
(Note that you can open most of these projects to reveal additional maps.)
Anyway, enjoy. 😊

I used my prompts generator for NPCs backgrounds to generate these four pregens or followers
(I decided their gender identities and sexual orientation on my own)
(That generator is fun but it need more work)

You could ask each player to roll and answer up to three rumors about their character class. Their answer are not necessarily trues, but some parts could be. With a small group of players, going around the table and letting each player roll and answer a question to establish a rumor about the other players profession can also be fun. An other option is to roll and answer one question by level.
If you don't want these rumors to apply to all fighters, cleric and magic-users, make them about a specific character guild.
When the characters explore a new location or region, modify one of their answers to create a local variant.
