The Canyon Bridge -hand-drawn RPG map by @JoyceGaming

In the heart of the Anauroch desert, the scorching sands stretch as far as the eye can see. But amidst the vast dunes lies a hidden gem, a mysterious canyon filled with towering rock pillars and a small room cut into the cliffs. The canyon is split in half by a deep, dark crevasse, spanned by a sturdy stone bridge.

Legend has it that this place was once home to a powerful gnoll band, who roamed the desert preying on travelers and caravans. Their reign of terror came to an end when the gnolls were mysteriously defeated and forced to retreat from the canyon. To this day, the bones of these gnolls remain scattered throughout the area, serving as a haunting reminder of their once dominant presence.

Despite its ominous history, the canyon attracts adventurers and treasure hunters seeking to unravel its secrets. The room cut into the cliff face is particularly intriguing, with many whispers of riches and powerful artifacts hidden within. Some brave souls have even ventured across the treacherous bridge, descending into the crevasse in search of answers.

But danger still lurks in the canyon, as the gnoll’s powerful magic and dark influence linger on. Those who venture into the room in the cliffs or cross the bridge risk facing untold horrors, and only the bravest and most cunning will emerge unscathed. Will you be the one to uncover the secrets of the Anauroch desert canyon, or will you fall to its dangers like those before you?
