“I always thought our backyard was small. Not anymore.”
—Shrunken Adventurer

The Ant Hill is a small-scale map of a large ant hill and the surrounding lawn or garden. This map is intended for use with shrunken characters forced to brave a dangerous micro world underneath their feet that they never noticed before.

The Ant Hill is intended for use in modern, supers, or science fiction games where shrinking exists from magic or science.

Alternatively, this map could also be a large-scale map where everything on the map has been enlarged by some sort of area effect. The giant ants inside the ant hill have wasted no time in fighting for their territorial space with what they view as encroaching tribal threats, namely humans in the neighborhood in close proximity to the colony.

Adventure hook for use with this map

The Last Piece: The good news is that the shrink ray worked. The bad news is that it got shrunk too with its parts flying everywhere when it smashed into the ground. The group has to collect the pieces of the shrink ray to put it back together again to return to normal size. Unfortunately the last piece is next to an ant hill filled with giant ants that are not friendly to the group entering their territory…

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
