Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Coming up with a original name for a monster book without accidentally selecting one already used by someone was probably easier a few decades ago. I always though "Fiend Folio" was a great name for a monster book and going for a similar alliteration style we could have something short like * Critte...

Re: Magical Item Compendium

I did try another variant but I'm not sure it's any better.

In any case I put both versions on the dropbox share.

Re: Magical Item Compendium

Borgar, do you take requests? I'd love to see a Horn of Doom. That's the item that casts Animate Dead when you blow it. Should be decorated in a, um, darker theme. I haven't been drawing that much lately but getting a request was flattering so I have made an attempt :D Not quite satisfied so I may ...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

I'm not sure if you want to add more icons but if I had drawn this by hand I might have used something like elevation lines and have the number of lines indicate slooping This wouldn't be hard to add some support when it comes to narrow corridors. A few icons with different number of curves would do...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

There's a "ramp" symbol you could use for a slope. I found that, but the original indicates slight ramping covering 4 squares so that doesn't fit too well either. Adding the ramp symbol to all 4 squares sort of makes it look very steep. The text for room 12 description combined with the isometric m...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

Ok I'm looking through the older releases to see where the non-iso maps show up. Your first level on MapMatic+2 looks good! I still may need your help for the lower level, as well as Wulfric's Tomb (though I did find the older non-iso maps for it, so I may be able to do those). Also, to be clear I ...

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

I've created a MapMatic+2 account and uploaded the map there (as public). Note that two rooms do overlap in the original when projected down into 2d.

Re: AA2 Adventure Anthology 2

Ok I can't comprehend iso maps apparently. Some rooms I can't tell have 2 or 3 squares width/length, and if I don't get them right it throws the rest off. Someone else is gonna either have to do them in MapMatic, or put up a rough sketch on grid paper to actually show me (and everyone else) the cor...

Re: Dungeoneer Upgrade Plans

How about the Mimic? May look like furniture and work great a as a trap. Though I guess it works well enough as a random encounter. BTW, though I just love "The Luggage" from the Discword books I usually avoid using it as a fake chest. The last time I used a mimic it was a fake door. Cabinets are al...

Re: Magical Item Compendium

Since I'm Norwegian I felt compelled to do an attempt to draw the "Horn of Valhalla". Since the blowing horn was usually made from animal (cow) horns I did not try to give it metal "look" (which is more difficult anyway). I'll just assume the metal are part of the decoration. horn_of_valhalla_small....
