I made a map of all the mining tunnels under Thorin’s Halls.
One of these days I’m going to burst into a voice channel, scream “I am the underminer” and then shoot myself with the mic still on.
Anyway, I’m doing the mining tunnels in TH. My first problem is instant: Where in the fuckfaced billows am I and how am I supposed to navigate this labyrinth? So I solved that conundrum.
With this, I now have an idea of the layout of these mining tunnels. As you can see, they are expansive (nearly half a square kilometre), but simple. They’re based around only one central tunnel. I’m going to fix that.
I was told to remap these tunnels to be centralised around the intersections of granite and schist. My first real task here was to figure out where the fuck those are. This map did not help with that, but I at least have something of an idea.
Right, so first thing is: I’m going to nuke everything to the left of the granite section on this map and redo it. From there, restructure everything.
Here’s my remap. (Hub Point 1’s position has changed to the entrance of Miner’s Alley).
I’ve completely fucken guessed where the granite even is here, but this map is even less exact than the last one, so it’s fine. This is just the general gist of the shape of it.
I tried to map it to express how the Dwarves mined: older, less structured tunnels on the right from when they started mining, then the more extensive and organised mining operation in the middle from when they started getting into it, with some newer tunnels being started more recently on the left.
I’m gonna do all of this myself and there’s nothing you can do to save me from my fate, fuckers.
