Bass Ackwards Dungeon DesignPosted: February 12, 2011
1) author conceives of adventure/setting/etc.
2) adventure/setting is written.
3) physical product (images, editing, etc.,) is produced to sell or distribute.
So, basically, art usually comes last in the process.
I have a bunch of drawings and other images that have been kicking around for a while with no particular purpose. My plan is to create a map and an adventure/setting using these pictures, then (maybe) produce illustrations to fill in the gaps.
First image is at right. That’s the basis of the adventure.
Next up I need to conceptualize what the adventure / setting is, etc. That it will take place in that pink city/castle is pretty much a given… but who lives in/built the city and why would any adventurer want to go there? And what happens when they do?
I have no idea how long this will take or what I am going to end up with; just spitballing right now.
