The Ghost of Lion Castle [map]

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.
