A small wooden bench sits beneath a covered portico providing a welcome entry into the Herbalist's Shop. A large window provides a glimpse of the well stocked shelves spilling over with bundles of herbs, small bags of powders and tiny jars of unguents. Inside the shop, the senses are thrilled by the strong smells of rare spices and pungent odors of exotic mixtures. The smiling face of Chaga Baba greets each customer, and she takes great pride in seeing to the distinct needs of every visitor. There are few concoctions that she does not have on hand or that she cannot provide after a few days of preparation. The more precious of her wares are kept locked up beneath the center counter and are available for inspection upon request.
Adjacent to the shop is Chaga's workroom, which is a highly organized and orderly space. There are implements used for each process of the curing and preparing of spices, oils, incense, and powders. Drying racks cover virtually every wall and the fireplace is lined with bubbling pots reducing a variety of agents into usable forms.
Behind the workroom is Chaga's extensive garden. The orderly rows of herbs and plants are lovingly tended to by her skilled hands throughout the day. Birds, bees and butterflies populate the garden area in abundant quantities. There is a small yet deep well in one corner of the stone walled yard and a tiny privy far away in the opposite corner. Chaga Baba resides in a tiny residence tucked into the rear of the property where she can observe her garden in relative comfort.
Arsenale Shipworks renders its maps in black and white with simple, yet detailed line drawings. Our idea is to give you a thought provoking and inspiring encounter location without draining every drop of ink from your printer. The relatively small file size also makes our maps ideal for importing into virtual tabletops!
This map is designed with a 1" grid suitable for use with most 25mm - 28mm miniatures and RPG game systems and is set up to print on 11"x17" sheet size. Since most people don't have access to large format printers, we are also including two additional files that divide the map into two 8 ½" x 11" sheets. These sheets are designed with a small overlap in the middle to facilitate cutting or folding in order to join the two sheets. Furthermore, three identical maps have been included with the labels and text turned off to make it easy for you to customize your own unique encounter location.
