Winter is coming. When you venture into the snowy north, where giants roam and mammoths stalk the icy plains, you’d best be prepared. The unwary perish in these treacherous snows.
The hall can be used for giants, or as the throne room of the barbarian king, perched on his mammoth-skull throne. A deep pit in the center of the room could be a sabretooth fighting pit, or just a convenient hole to throw unruly adventurers, before their fate is decided.
The Giant’s Meadhall is a map pack designed for use with a virtual tabletop, or to be printed out and used on the table at home.
Another Kobold Quarterly has hit the shelves – and with it another colour map. This one resides on the back cover and is the venue for a PC beer run. The complication is that the beer is already in a meadhall, and that meadhall is owned and occupied by giants. With bears.
The meadhall comes with a rickety bridge over an icy river, fire pits, a fighting pit, bear enclosure, mammoth skull throne and, of course, barrels of beer. Everything you could want for a memorable night of beer rustling.

I’ve been curating a gallery show of maps of New York by a collection of very talented artists. The maps are on display at the Soho Gallery for Digital Art until March the 16th. We’ll be having a party on the 20th to show off the maps and have some wine and nibbles and if you’re in the New York area you’re very welcome to come by. Wine will be open from around 7.30 and the address is 138 Sullivan Street, Manhattan.
If you are unable to make it to the gallery in person, you can still view the wonderful maps on display. Check out the online gallery for the show here.
Cassedega – Built on the Ruined Remains of Ankeshel
This sunken city map was created for Open Design for their Pathfinder supplement Sunken Empires. I was asked to create a city in two halves – one above the sea and one below – built on top of the ruins of an ancient city that had been sunken beneath the waves and recently re-appeared. Nothing like a challenge…
