Masks of Lankhmar -- Location of the Temple Tenement of Djil

Post by dkabq »

The map in the module shows the temple tenement as being on the south side of Craft Street and boarded by Dead Dog Alley on the east. However, as Dead Dog Alley is not labeled on the Lankhmar map, I cannot find the temple tenement on the Lankhmar map. Any help in locating it on the map is appreciated.

This is a guess.

I'd figure it for the corner or either Silver or Whore as the cross street the facade faces. Neither is a perfect match, but has features that align somewhat.

Of course, Masks was written before the bulk of the research was underway, so we'd have to expect differences in details from the "launch" publication and the final publication. And alleys can be narrow little things, not marked on the map because they are so incidental and hard to identify...

"Is that an alley or just a gap between buildings?"

"Is there a difference...?"

It's anywhere you want it to be. It's your Lankhmar, so don't sweat the small stuff.
