~ Attention. Here’s an update on tonight’s dinner. It was veal. I repeat, veal. The winner of tonight’s mystery meat contest is Jeffrey Corbin who guessed “some kind of beef.”~
Welcome to the Christmas Eve Edition of the Friday “Mystery Meat”. I wasn’t sure if I would get any time to actually post this today, seeing as how tis the season, …..but here it is. This week we have an old map, an Ogre’s Lair. I did this one on some engineering graph paper I discovered in while studying mech engineering in college. I loved this graph paper at the time. The actual grid is on the other side of the page, but is easy enough to see through the other side to map with. Plus it has holes punched for a binder and boxes at the top for labeling. I have a lot of maps done on this stuff.
As far as the ogre’s lair itself, the abanded mines are timber supported and were original mined by gnomes. There is a Gnome engineered elevator to the caves below. I also see a large cavern that is a crypt/graveyard. The undead there will not animate unless the sarcophagus in N is disturbed. I wish I could find the original key to this thing as it looks like a lot of fun. I seem to remember it was a lot of fun to play. Merry Christmas everyone…..I wish all of you and your families a very wonderful holiday season.
