Man was I dreading this day. Potions!? How do you draw a POTIONS themed room from a lofty position high above a dungeon.
What can you add to a Dungeons and Dragons map to make people think, potions?! Surely my penmanship isn’t good enough to draw individual potions
I was dreading this #inktober day, especially after yesterdays disaster of a tower inktober drawing.
With the help of some followers on Twitter however, it turned into one of the best #inktober additions I’ve done to date!
Check out the potion rooms in the bottom right corner of the dungeon map below:
I think it turned out amazingly well.
Fancy a close up of the new potions section? Of course you do
Twitter Follower Inspiration
Today I was really struggling for motivation and inspiration for this room, but after a cry for help on Twitter, several followers came to my aid.
Half a dozen people suggested ideas, so thank you all.
I have cherry picked 3 individual replies for special thanks.
Potion Bottle Room – Eli Brightwood
Shape it like a potion bottle with a door made of cork xD and have the alarm system seal the door and fill the room with a potion.
Or How about a room where the failed potions made are stored? That way when theparty loots it you can give them really amusing side effects

Eli Brightwood gave me the inspiration to add a room shaped like a potion bottle, which at first I was terrified to try, but a test came out nicely
So I took the plunge, what a result. I love it.
The Alchemists Office – Dungeons & Blaggards
Love the mapping style @PSJMaps Potions? Alchemist set: broken. Vials and bottles are in pieces on the floor.

Dungeons & Blaggards gave me the idea of the small alchemists office with the spilt flask of liquid.
What potion has been dropped here?!?
The Ingredients Cave – Samantha Tee
What about a greenhouse where the plants used for potions are stored?

Last but definitely not least, Samantha Tee gave me the great idea to add a room for the actual plants and ingredients.
Of course an alchemist would have the plants on hand nearby! What a great idea.
Thank you Eli, Samantha and Dungeons & Blaggards. You’re amazing!
