…….Friday’s “Mystery Meat”……..

~ 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.”~


     It was this quote that inspired the Friday “Mystery Meat” posts. It’s from the movie “Meatballs” starring Bill Murray…..IMHO it’s a classic. If you’ve never seen it, you should check it out. Anyway, moving right along, I found this sketch for a dungeon idea the “Thieves Castle”. This is a very old sketch, I’m thinking I drew it at least 25+ years ago. I never actually turned this into a full fledged dungeon, but I liked the sketch enough to keep it around all these years. To me, the suprising thing is, that just reading the brief notes on the page, I know just what I was planning for the levels. The two “Thieve’s Test Levels” intrigue me the most. I imagine them to be levels of tricks, traps and other nastiness that a thief has to successfully get through to become a full-fledged Guild memeber.

About this blog

    This blog came into being after I discovered the OSR blog scene. I was inspired by Dyson Logos and his blog, specifically his geomorph project. Check out his awesome work: "Dyson's Dodecahedron" The style and the simple elegance of his 10 x 10 squares put me on a mapping roll. I have blatently (...and respectfully) emulated his style and now have pages upon pages of geomorphs. Along with more location specific maps in that same style.

   My intent for this blog is for it to be more than just maps and geomorphs. However, for now, I'm just enjoying this burst of creativity inspired by Dyson and the entire OSR community.
