Free Map Friday! Someone left the hose on again...
A quick encounter based on the Barrow Mound Random Crypt Generator in Barrowmaze Complete.
 
Free Map Friday! Sunken Mound of the Secret Goddess.
I had an itch to work on some water features this week, so I present the Sunken Mounds of the Secret Goddess. This map began as an experiment in random dungeon creation. I started with the tables in Barrowmaze Complete and used the Location tables from The Tome of Adventure Design. These were a mix of random rolls and inspiration.  Since I'm running a Barrowmaze campaign at home, I plan to fill this out using the Barrowmaze Complete tables for my...

I'd always loved the premise behind module B6: The Veiled Society, though thought it showed only a fraction of the mob/gang activity that would be present in such a large city. When GAZ1: The Grand Duchy of Karameikos was rel...

Loyal LLers, 

Please point to existing literature on what Labyrinth Lord thinks about the Negative Plane and Earth Elemental Plane.

Your attention in these matters is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Besides what is in AEC that is it. If you want more in depth maybe check guide to the inner planes for planescape. I know it covers both planes in relative detail.

Is there a written rule for using fire against an enemy? I can't seem to find one in any of the published rules-B/X, LL, or the RC.
i.e. Attempting to set a Zombie on fire during combat.

So I've decided that my kids need to experience D&D the same way I did. Basic D&D is their game of choice currently and after a couple of short delves into the Barrowmaze just to get their feet wet, I'm going to give them the choice to visit the Keep on the Borderlands.

I'm pretty sure haven't read through this adventure since I played it in the 80's. I never realized how much great DM advice is in this module.

Free Map.. Monday? A revised Lair No.1 from Friday. I just couldn't put it down.
 
Free Map... Monday? I wasn't satisfied with the map from Friday so I took some time today to revise it. Share it with your friends!
I wasn't satisfied with the map on Friday, so at lunch today I took some time to revise it.

Here's a map of far more recent vintage: an unfinished attempt to expand out the Known Lands of Labyrinth Lord. I never got very far with this map; IIRC, this was from around the time I picked up Hexographer and started worki...

Tonight was the family's second visit to the Barrowmaze. While they never actually made it inside a barrow, it was a short, but fantastic game. Tonight was my wife's first ever RPG experience! She played the best Cleric I've ever seen.

Free Map Friday at last! It's been a busy month on all fronts here in the Middle Kingdoms; still, I managed to get this small map out this week. Enjoy. If you use any of my maps let me know- I'm always curious as to if, how, when and where they get used.

(A reminder that 20% of my Patreon goes to help out Jim Ward this month.)
 
Free Map Friday! Lair No. 1
This week's map is inspired by a Labyrinth Lord campaign I'm running for my family. For me it is a kobold lair, but could just as easily be an underground bandit hide out a secret bunker for Nazi occultists, a stronghold for ...
