I'm glad to hear that its done too... What I don't understand is that, if its already finished (and there will be copies available at the con) why will it take until November before its released to the general public? Oops. perhaps I spoke too soon about the ABSOLUTE level of completion of Castle W...

the return of Topographic Rex

hah! You thought you all had escaped me from these boards at last! But I return. Anyway...[cough, cough], I'm back . Umm, on the boards, that is. I never really went anywhere, unless you count the little vacations I take from sanity, from time to time. Having recently surfaced from the map and desig...

I run on All Windows platforms....except Vista. For that you've got to transplant my brain, add another eye to my face and sing sweet blues to me. Actually, it's very simple. I use Illustrator for the DCC maps. But there are certain tips and tricks to create the consistency necessary for these maps,...

I was just hoping for a few maps with smaller scales (not the entire world, but perhaps a few areas that contained a noteworthy number of already-published adventures). I'm not sure what to do, as a DM, with simply a large-scale map for adventures. But the setting sounds too intriguing to pass up. ...

I just like the handle "bobrunnicles" How can anyone not like that? I hear you on the old maps feel, I like those kinda maps too. Maybe on another project we might try something different, but as Jeff says, this time we felt this was the way to go. Nonetheless, I like that you brought up those old J...

I'll try to explain my approach and reasoning blow-by-blow here: * Lakes : The coloring is intention...

The Poagster

Yea, props to Stephan. Stephan was sole artist on my adventure, and I must say he came to play. I was a bit concerned when I heard I had only one artist -because one of the cool things about the DCC illos is that several artists (Brad, Jason, et al) contribute and give it a lot of different looks- b...

Re: Topographic Rex can relax...for now.

Heh. Maybe I'm just Bear-Stupid. I'm working on scaling that back a little, but my exuberance gets the best of me. Never. No scaling it back my friend, I was just making fun.

Topographic Rex can relax...for now.

Wow. Thanks for the good reviews of the maps (and the rest, of which I am confident once you've had some time to digest it. Harley, Jeff and Mike did an amazing job, especially given the sheer size of the project!). The printers nailed my color settings on the maps, so for that I am indescribably re...

There's a small con in the area and I was thinking about running this for some of the oldschoolers that come to the con. Not sure how much time I have, so still uncertain about whether to do as a one-session event or as a multi-session tourney. I would LOVE to join in this one at GenCon (if you're ...

How fast will the Box Set sell out at GenCon? If you wanna get a copy in August and not wait, I suggest getting to GenCon in the first couple of days. I know Joseph will get as many copies as he can, but since all of us involved in the project have been told that we might not get contributor copies ...

Hah! I couldn't agree more. 'Old-School Gaming' for me is just regular old gaming, but I have to remember that I'm sort of an old man too. I recall peeling off with glee the low-grade shrink wrap from the next Gygax doozy and the thing is, the joy of that isn't just a nostalgia thing now, I thought ...

Thanks for the reply toper. I'm sure I'll be very happy with this setting come September, maps and all. I always like to use a homebrew setting, but this may change that. So far, I'm very happy with what I'm seeing and hearing. Any chance of some more sneak previews? Bigger map? Maybe a few pages f...

Thanks for the reply toper. Can you tell us what the scale is on the poster maps provided? Maybe how many miles to the inch? I'm hoping they aren't something like "100 miles to the inch", because that's too large for useable gameplay. Sure, you get a nice visual of the over-all world, but adventure...

Yah, agree with Jeff there my friend.

Excellent point, Jeff. Who will really remember the Stroh/Fergus/LaSala/Simmons/Goodman team who created this world? As long as they remember Aereth, I'll be content.

Of course, I'd like to be rich and famous too...but I think I picked the wrong bloody profession for that.

Actually, in reference to Harley's insights above (his self-described "cheesy moment"), I can't imagine a better way to say it. But I'll stumble through my own addendum to his thoughts: Are we nerds for playing D&D? Probably. But then I like to think I'm a nerd for reasons that go FAR beyond that. A...
