The Ghost of Lion Castle [map]June 7, 2011 | Author: Lucky | Category: Maps | Tags: Basic | Leave a comment »
Way back in the day (1984), a solo module was released with a red box version of Basic D&D. It was BSOLO1 The Ghost of Lion Castle.
I had a friend that bought D&D so he could play with me and I took the Lion Castle module to prepare it for him, but lo and behold, it cut the DM out of the loop. As an 8 year old I guess I wasn’t ready to convert it to a traditional form. Looking at it now, the rooms aren’t numbered and the choose-your-own-adventure format is frustrating in trying to place which encounters happen where without playing every variation of the adventure. But hey … I digress.
Regardless, the map is an interesting one and I just used it with my own home campaign. Below is a re-mapped, black-n-white version of the Lion Castle, made a bit larger and on a 5′ grid. Perfect for online play. Enjoy.
