Another dip into the Birthright campaign setting. This time with a kingdom from the Heartlands – Tuornen. This is largely based on the Player’s Secrets supplement with individual coat of arms for the provinces from Birthright.net. Enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »
Who doesn’t love the Temple of Elemental Evil in all of its AD&D glory? I created a player’s map of Hommlet in FR style.
Another map from the Birthright setting (1995). This one neighbors the previous map I posted of Talinie to the east, the vile goblin lands of Thurazor. Unlike the first map I posted, Thurazor does not have a Player’s Secrets supplement to give a larger map with all the small towns and geographical features. So I created them myself. I have to admit making this map (using the template from the cursed lands of Aengmor) was really fun. And there are one or two inside jokes in there for the vigilant eye and a mind for fantasy trivia. Hope you like it.
I am a bit of a fan of the old school, hex mapping style (Greyhawk or Mystara). That converged with my love of the old 2E Birthright campaign setting about two years ago. Great concept, deeply developed with some new aspects added to the traditional D&D game. I converted the Talinie hand drawn in the Player’s Secrets supplement to that style of map (2 miles per square). I also added a few extra little tid bits on the map for color. As an extra, I also converted the map into a FR style map. Read the rest of this entry »
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.
