Over at Lasgunpacker, which follows on from other blog posts (see the post link and the comments too), there’s talk about keying dungeon entries that’s been quite interesting to follow, and it got me thinking about how I do mine; so I thought I’d share a few images from the notebook I’m currently using for mapping and detailing my adventure for the Take Two version of the City of Bones.
I’ve decided that I really prefer handwriting my adventures, especially now that I can map with the Dyson-styled hash-marks too fill out the stone between the rooms etc. In fact, I love seeing over people’s notes too, especially hand-written ones, maps too; when I was a young lad, I used to love looking at my dad’s adventures and seeing the maps he’d drawn and the notes he’d made.
My notes in the picture above are a paragraph of two of description and notes, colour-coded notes for special rules, monsters, treasure and headings, and I try to write the stuff out in the order the characters would experience the room, but not always.
Anyway. Just thought I’d share.
