The Blackapple Brugh

Post Tue Aug 04, 2020 11:58 am

Here's a draft of a new adventure I wrote. It's still rough, and could use an edit and formatting review.

I'd welcome any feedback and kindhearted/inspired contributions of illustrations (esp. maps that look better than something some dude drew on graph paper).

There aren't major content gaps, so feel free to playtest if you think it sounds interesting. I'm definitely open to feedback on that front as well. It's slated for levels 1-3, but one question I have is if that should be bumped up a bit.

Many thanks,
Kyle, AKA Bumblepig

Normally, if an artist doesn't step forward to draw a map for you, and yours isn't up to publication standards, we redraw it using MapMatic. And we can't do blue-line maps, because we print in black and white.

Ah, makes sense. This one probably would lend itself more to being hand-drawn since there are some nonstandard elements (dumbwaiters, important placement of standing mirrors, pathways through a fungal forest). But those are all nice-to-haves, and I realize that there are many other priorities.

Muze,
I really appreciate it! It sounds like we don't do blue line maps, but I always smile when I see a map in blue because it takes me back...

r2 uploaded to first post. Added spacing for images, fixed most stat-lines (needed non-braking spaces, deleted periods from those w/ only single opponent, etc.), added a few references where needed, and more.

I've been known to load up MapMatic images in Gimp and edit them manually, to add elements MapMatic can't handle.

I've also been known to add elements to MapMatic just to handle something unusual.

Happy to help 8-) I did a lot of little corrections, but still need to do another read-through and full edit. I'd like others to chime in before then; I'm better at the "trees" than the "forest" usually :D
