Status Update - 2nd main dungeon complete! 3rd half done.

The bulk of the work on the 2nd main dungeon has been finished, and now I'm about halfway through building the 3rd main dungeon.

 Progress is going along nicely. :) The majority of feedback I've gotten from my adventure maps said that the exploration and puzzles were most enjoyable, so I'm trying to focus on those elements. I want to create a landscape populated with mini-dungeons that are not critical to the story, but offer some type of small reward (think Skyrim). Because of this it's hard to gauge how much more work I have to do. I still need to complete the 3rd and 4th main dungeons, 4 "mid" dungeons, and I would also like to dot the landscape with around 10 "mini" dungeons. The mini dungeons will be pretty basic, so they should take much less time.

 We'll see how it goes. I'll continue focusing on finishing the main quest line for now. Here's a screen of the frosty mountains and the entrance to the orc gold mine!

Grizwald 3 Update - Moving along nicely :D

Since I began working on Grizwald 3 I've pretty much halted production of anymore youtube videos. Sorry for that. But the good news is that the next Professor Grizwald map is well underway! The basic map structure and layout has been completed. The first main dungeon has been completed, and the 2nd main dungeon is almost done as well.

I do have some pretty big plans for this map, so no ETA on a release yet, but I do plan on getting it completed by the end of May, so let's hope that's realistic.

Here's a screen of the first dungeon as well, "New Elfton":
