Desert Research Station (80×60)

Hi everyone, and thank you for your patience! It’s great to be back from my vacation. Honestly, I do not remember the last time I was not working one job through the summer. I feel recharged and inspired after some rest and a visit to Ropecon, the largest non-commercial TTRPG convention in Europe. It was really great to see my “tribe” after two years of canceled and remote events.C2A0

Without further ado, here’s a new map inspired by the 2021 Dune movie. I could not find any references besides the few scenes in the movie, so I took quite a few artistic and practical liberties with this one. Let me know if you recognize the place or if you would like to see more base layouts like this one.C2A0

After this release, I have some 150 or so old Foundry scenes updated and being prepared for Moulinette. I also have a set of new tokens and an adventure waiting for the release prep. Once these are out, I’ll continue working on the pending Foundry scenes, new maps, and textures for Dungeondraft.

Thanks!

PS. Please note that the map includes some labeled versions, but this release does not include descriptions.

Edit: fixed some silly typos 🙂

The scientists of the Imperium have tried to solve the mysteries of the desert planet for centuries and find a way to terraform the planet, but with little success. This outpost is one of the many ecological research stations built around the planet. Once all of the stations were dedicated to studying the climate and the terraforming efforts, but now most are repurposed, abandoned, or reclaimed by rebels and smugglers for their use.
