Sketch of the Black Gate.
Originally shared by Adrian Thoen
In the distance looms the Black Gate, an obsidian monolith, severe black against the rainbow cosmos of the night sky. The craggy hills leading up to it are bathed in cool, forgiving moonlight, while the Gate stands in sharp, unforgiving judgment.
Through it’s razor maw, a different landscape burns in black smoke and red hot burning rocks. A blasted wasteland filled with misery and desperation.
Shadowy transparent figures make their way up the one thousand and nine steps of fate to the yawning gate into the Great Beyond, where the Guardian awaits.
a quick sketch of the Black Gate from +Dungeon World. I may use this as a basis for the cover of Lands of the Dead.
