I’ve been looking through my old D&D notes from back in the ’90s, rediscovering my old campaign world and trying to decipher notes from games I don’t remember playing. I’ve also been looking at the old TSR adventures from when I first started playing. I’d forgotten how much I used to like the old blue maps – they were pure function over fashion, simple and easy to read, designed to be used as a visual key to an adventure rather than a piece of art. A lot of people dislike them, but I’ve got a lot of nostalgia for them.
With that in mind, I decided to take one of my old dungeon maps and give it the blue TSR treatment. I couldn’t find any notes that corresponded to this map, so you get it just as I found it – a blank slate, to be filled with whatever kind of adventure you desire.

You may have noticed that last week’s Friday Fight Night didn’t show up, and that this post is currently 14 hours late. I got swamped with work (and other stuff) this last week, and fell behind on… well, everything, really. I’m planning to take the next couple of days to work on content for the site at the exclusion of everything else, so that I can get back to the other stuff that is still keeping me busy without having to worry about missing deadlines here. With any luck I’ll be able to get all the content for the next few weeks written tomorrow and Wednesday; I’m sure I’ll shout about it on Twitter if I manage to do that.
At home, my girlfriend and I have recently upgraded our PC. We used to do a little bit of Twitch streaming, and we’re looking at starting it again. I’ve been toying with the idea of drawing maps on stream, so let me know if that sounds like something you’d watch!
