Scanning Project: Dungeon of the Dragon Lord

As promised, here is another of my home-brew dungeons, scanned and posted for your consumption.

Unlike the previous dungeon, of whose exact date of creation I am not certain, I can give this one a relatively accurate birth date: some time in February or March of 1983. How can I be so certain? Well, it's because I have a semi-clear recollection of watching Wizards & Warriors as I drew the map for this dungeon. (How's that for "old school?" /wink)

As I mentioned in my last post, you'll see some familiar features in this dungeon: an underground river/stream, an underground lake, and several pools/wells. Oh, and a complete disregard for "Gygazian naturalism." (I didn't start worrying about the care and feeding of dungeon monsters until much later. At this point in time, I was really just looking for things to give my PC's to kill and loot. Ah, simpler times - how I miss them.)

So, seen here by eyes other than mine for the first time since the early 80's, I present to you the Dungeon of the Dragon Lord. (I seem to have misplaced the stats for the Dragon Lord himself, but any NPC magic user of third or fourth level should do.) Enjoy!

Up next in the scanning project series: Dungeon of the Dragon Lord revisited - 13 years later!

Stay tuned...

  2. @Ripper: I believe that, by this point, we were playing a mash-up of Moldvay Basic and AD&D (mostly Basic).
