[nbos] Joerdhgardh Map of Week 11 - Svurumnir's Lair Part 2
"Mark Oliva"
Mon May 16th, 2011
The 10th and 11th Map-of-the-Week releases are dungeon plans for the lair of
the dark draug Svurumnir. In the Joerdhgardh (TM) campaign setting, a dark
draug is very similar to a high-powered lich in such OGL 3.5 games as the
Pathfinder (R) RPG, the True20 (TM) system or Dungeons & Dragons (R) 3.5.

Svurumnir's small dungeon consists of Svurumnir's tower, a tower for his red
draug magi and a shabbily restored mill building that's the lair of the orcs
who serve Svurumnir and his subservient reds draugs. Last week's release
included an outdoor, top down view of the dungeon complex and the cellar,
ground floor and upper floor views of the orc lair. This week's release
offers the fivelevels of the two towers.

. Ground Floors - Magi's Towers: The left or southern tower is used
by four red draug magi. It has a single opening, the door here on the
ground floor. The lower or northern tower is used by Svurumnir alone. It
has no openings. The dark draug leaves and enters it magically. The ground
floor of Svurumnir's tower is empty. The ground floor of the magi's tower
has a stairway leading upward to the next level, two stools and always two
orc guards on duty.

. 2nd Stories - Left Magi's Towers: Svurumnir has no floor on this
level. In the other tower, two red draug magi are on this level. Each has
a workbench here. The left stairway leads to the next higher level. The
right stairway leads to the ground floor.

. 3rd Stories - Magi's Towers: Both towers have libraries on this
level. In the left tower, the left stairway leads to the next higher level.
The right stairway leads downward.

. 4th Stories - Magi's Towers: In the left tower, a red draug has his
workbench and a small library. The left stairway leads to the next higher
level. The right stairway leads downward. In the right tower, Svurumnir
keeps his avatar in a cage with lead bands. This makes it impossible for
any search to find his avatar or body. The dark draug prefers inhabiting
his own body to that of the avatar. When he is in his tower (almost
always), he inhabits his true form. He uses his avatar only when he leaves
the tower. In that case, his true body stays shielded from divining in the
cage and the avatar becomes active. The left stairway leads to the next
higher level. The right stairway leads downward.

. 5th Stories - Magi's Towers: In the left tower, a red draug mage
has his workbench and a small library. The stairway leads downward. In the
right tower, Svurumnir has his workbench and a small library. The stairway
leads downward.

You can get the full-sized plans in any either of two versions from the
Joerdhgardh web site (below).

1. As JPG flat maps, each 1360 x 1020 pixels (3 MB).

2. The original FM8 map in FMP format, fully editable. Because the various
dungeon levels are layers of a single FM8 map file, this version includes
both this week's and last week's dungeon levels. Download it from our
Joerdhgardh web page (34 MB). This version includes a PDF pamphlet that
tells you how to use the layers that are built into the map.

Both versions are released for personal and commercial use under the Open
Game License Version 1.0a, which you can read on the Joerdhgardh web site.
