I remember some posts in years past about ways to reduce a room description to simpler forms easier to glance at and see the important details. Maybe your vast collective wisdom can help me find some of them again :)

I've been running Rappan Athuk for several sessions now and I'm finding that I miss things in the paragraphs of room description, like I forget that a door is locked only to realize my mistake after they're in the room exploring around. Very annoying. I'd like to experiment with making better notes and see if that helps me out.

I'm thinking about putting together a hexcrawl game. What are the best resources for hexcrawl rules?

I play a game that mixes S&W White box with Bloody Basic so rules that are on the lighter/streamlined side would work best.

Does anyone recall a blog post from a few years back, proposing ability score maximums for halflings in B/X or Lab Lord?

Like if you got a PC with a max score of 9 you were eligible to be a halfling?
