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
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!
