Slaxl: redsquid: This needs to be a game! This guy needs to find a visionary programmer and do a Kickstarter campaign. I would kick some loot his way. This is awesome. At least scan all the pages and create an explorable online archive/history of his project.

Wouldn't it be easier and cheaper to just close your eyes and picture your own imaginary world?


Wow- you just saved me a fortune on cable bills, games, concerts, music and vacations!
'Hey redsquid, why are you sitting there with your eyes closed?'
'I'm not. I'm playing the new GTA while watching Breaking Bad and listening to Daft Punk... on Maui.'

Langdon_777: I went out of my way and made a huge city map (10's of A4 graph paper) - downside was I spent so much time making my cool city map I never actually DM'd a game in it.


I always got way too tied up on individual buildings to ever get beyond a dozen pages of A5..

Langdon_777: dolphkhan: FormlessOne: Cartography is one of the true joys of running a RPG.

Absolutely. A friend of mine had the Waterdeep box set.. his basement was huge and empty, and we still couldn't spread that thing out completely. I always dreamed of equaling or topping that.

After I got the Lankhmar box set (that had sooo many maps), I went out of my way and made a huge city map (10's of A4 graph paper) - downside was I spent so much time making my cool city map I never actually DM'd a game in it.


I've more than one like that - sure, it's a bit masturbatory, but, much like masturbation, it's too much fun to put it down. :P
