Explorers of a new district by ncorva Explorers of a new district by ncorva
This is a sister image of another illsutraiton I posted a while back. Hope you like it. Just in case I will leave the backstory here again.

Hear me brave adventurers!” the mayor’s messenger shouted. Behind him a large gate, clearly improvised over the hole in the wall. It was built nearly 10 years ago, to ensure the new settlers of Greywall wouldn’t disperse or fall into dangerous grounds. A hundred years ago, the city was home to over 15 thousand souls. Now, over 20 years after the resettlement, the community barely reached one thousand, all occupying the northern district. Thus, it became common practice to hire those brave enough to explore the closed-off districts, which were still filed with undead and other wild creatures, and pave the way for future resettlement.
“You are given three days. Three days to move as far as you can. The last group went in and managed to clear the old central market place but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t overrun in the mean time in the past few days.” The man shouted as loud as it could, his lungs probably ready to pop out. He held a book in hand and took a quick glance over it. Then continued “More than half of you are well known, survivors of previous Exploration Groups, so you know the dangers. Please try to make it out alive. And as always, you get to keep all the wealth you find! Good luck and may the Heroes bless your quest!”
The gates opened. Me and my dozen comrades, most armed with chain armor and bladed weapons, readied ourselves and prepared to move towards the weed-covered streets and crumbled buildings.

This could be quite a story- why'd the city fall apart?
Plague? invasion? monster attack? dark magic?

Fantasy setting- the reasons could be all, or none of, the above.

Exactly. I think that is what makes it an interesting setting for a tabletop rpg. You can explore a bit of all of them.

Do the monsters ever try getting out through the gate?
Reply
:iconncorva:
ncorva Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2018  Student General Artist
I guess they would! In the other image that goes along with this one you can see the inside of one of these gates and I tried to put sratch marks and other signs of monster activity. I guess that a smart move would be to create a narrow corridor  with a series of manned check points along the way.
If you do that you can create a bottleneck that reduces the possibilities of being swarmed. You put your best fighters upfront so that, having disabled the advantage of numeric superiority, they can contain the monsters and recieve reinforcements from the rear checkpoints. 

At least that's how I'd handle it. What about you? :)

I suppose that would work quite well. I think the addition of a sturdier gate and perhaps a moat/ditch of some sort with a drawbridge would also be helpful
