I'm easing back into the blogosphere today after a nice week off (of sorts). Rather than concentrating on three things at a time, it was a welcome treat to trim my usual workload down to two. I managed to get done what I needed to on the Dungeon Alphabet and also move the Stonehell draft closer to the finish line.
Like most of you, I kept a close watch on the developments in Indy over the weekend and I’m no longer dismayed about having to miss out this year. From the reports I’ve read, the big announcements won’t have any impact on my quiet corner of the hobby. So other than the having the opportunity to meet some people in the flesh, I don’t feel I missed much.
During my downtime, I finally had the opportunity to go over the various maps for Stonehell and make sure everything lines up between them and the draft. Since I had them out anyway, I took a few pictures of the assembled map. If you’ve had any suspicions that I might be blowing smoke about this whole megadungeon thing, hopefully these pictures will put those doubts to rest. Everything you see here is covered in the first Stonehell book, which is, as you’ll notice, quite a sizable amount of subterranean real estate. I’m hoping people will have fun with the final result.
For a sense of scale, I placed my battered print copy of Labyrinth Lord in the bottom left-hand corner of the pictures. As you can see, that’s a whole lot of dungeon to explore!
