Neat-o. What system/s are you using these days?

Zak Sabbath said...

When I'm running? Same as usual. AD&D/3.5 mashup.

I like the block style of the woods. Reminds me of the old Ultima PC games from back in the day. I also like your typography (for lack of a better term) in your depiction of the mountains.

Soooo.... it's going to be color this time around?

Zak Sabbath said...

yyyyyyyep

Blair said...

What's the graph paper from?

Zak Sabbath said...

Looking Glass world.

Brand is called "whitelines"

When PC's slog through Spires of Zombar I assume they find out that princess in another castle.

Lol, Garden of Pests. Couldn't agree more. xD

Melan said...

The pain! The pain! :D

Garden of Pests sounds absolutely right, though.

Nice map about the Carpathian basin. :)According to this map I live in Garden of Pests, but I was born in the Terrible Goblin Woods. :)

Hu? How?

Zak Sabbath said...

What does that mean?

Jeremy said...

How do you mash up AD&D and 3.5?

Zak Sabbath said...

AD&D classes, no feats, skills for thieves only, items and spells from both versions, no prestige classes, most of the rest as 3.5

Jeremy said...

That's...that's just lovely. What do you do for monsters? Also, 1979 or 1989 AD&D? Sorry to bombard you with questions, it's just a fascinating idea.

Zak Sabbath said...

'79 AD&D + unearthed arcana (no bards).

For monsters I use the 3.5 stats basically (since PCs have 3.5 era hitpoints), though I usually increase their damage output and decrease hit points.

Basically: I custom build the monsters

I absolutely love this map. Thank you for sharing it.

I can't seem to find this on the web. Is Looking Glass World a virtual or meat-space shop?

Zak Sabbath said...

it's a joke.

"Whitelines" brand graph paper is real though.

amy said...

Is this place next door to your vampire place? That makes a sort of sense....

Zak Sabbath said...

same place
