The Wooden Duck is a walled coaching inn nearly a day’s ride from Granitespire, about an hour outside of Prince’s Harbour. It has a small tavern but is mostly dedicated to 8 private and semi-private rooms and a large common room for travelers to stay overnight.
The Wooden Duck is owned by a widower who moved here from Granitespire – he is eternally on edge because back in the city he killed a silver merchant and expects the monkeys of Granitespire to swarm down upon the Duck at any moment, even decades later.
The main bartender, Hemrus, is a particularly ugly halfling with spiky bright blond hair who wears tall platform shoes to look over the bar. He is energetic and quick, and yet quiet and surly in disposition. He earns tips for his prompt service, never for his pleasant demeanor.
In addition to the bartender, the Inn maintains a staff of 4-6 additional cooks and servants who take care of horses, clean the rooms, and cook when the main cook isn’t on hand.
This map is made available to you under a free license for personal or commercial use thanks to the awesome supporters of my Patreon Campaign. Over 400 amazingly generous people have come together to fund the site and these maps, making them free for your use.
Because of the incredible generosity of my patrons, I’m able to make these maps free for commercial use also. Each month while funding is over the $300 mark, each map that achieves the $300+ funding level will be released under this free commercial license. You can use, reuse, remix and/or modify the maps that are being published under this commercial license on a royalty-free basis as long as they include attribution (“Cartography by Dyson Logos” or “Maps by Dyson Logos”).

As a thank you to everyone who supports my work through the Patreon Campaign, I’ve started producing some exclusive releases that go up to all patrons over on Patreon.
As always, the maps I produce for the blog remain free – but there are over 500 people who put in money every month to make these maps free for everyone to enjoy, and I thought it would be a nice gesture to give them something to show my gratitude. Without the Patreon campaign, this blog would have mostly died in 2014 when my disability ran out. But here we are in 2019 and still posting 8-10 free maps a month, plus the occasional other RPG content.
This month we have this pocketmod adventure framework that uses a map that was on the blog a few months ago – but it gave me an excuse to practice illustrating a bit more instead of creating a new map… and I’m really excited and pleased by how the little black and white spot illos turned out.
Patreon-Exclusive content will never be given away for free through the blog, but some may appear as commercial products in time.
If you want a copy of Tales of the Ophidian Empire, it is a free download for all my supporters on Patreon.
