GM Nostalgia #8 – Lich’s Pet Dungeon lvl 4

It is already time for the 8th GM Nostalgia post, time does fly and that is exactly what this series of posts is all about. I’m going back over my old GM stuff and we are coming up on the final map of the Lich’s Pet Dungeon, my very first home made dungeon. If you are new to the series have a look at The GM Nostalgia Archive It seems traps are still a thing in map 4, we got a room full of lava with stepping stones and some…

GM Nostalgia #7 – Lich’s Pet Dungeon lvl 3 (map3)

Hola! I hope you are enjoying my trip down memory lane, manifested in these old dungeon maps of mine, as much as myself. Next up for my GM Nostalgia is the another old map, its the 3rd map in the Lich’s Pet Dungeon, continuing from map 2 obviously 😉 Apparently my map making skills were advancing as i appear to have blacked out the area surrounding dungeon areas, although it was a simple technique of crossing out the squares it did do the job of making the map more pleasantly…

GM Nostalgia #6 – Lich’s Pet Dungeon lvl 2 – Room Stuffings!

It’s time to follow up on the last GM Nostalgia post: GM Nostalgia #5 Lich’s Pet Dungeon Lvl 2 Map with room stuffings. Yet more young me flavor, not a whole lot of room descriptions, i was much more focused on what monster would be facing the adventurers next! Alot of it feels malplaced and weird, yet i think it has that oldschool dungeon crawl to it and i still had some sense of monsters being here was because someone put them here deliberately. Someone is in control of all…

GM Nostalgia #5 – New Dungeon Map – Lich’s Pet Dungeon lvl 2

Next up in my old GM papers are the 2nd level of my very first dungeon. We’ve just gone through the first level and it’s 56 room descriptions in the previous 4 GM Nostalgia posts. If you’re new to the series you can catch up on this link, i took the liberty of sorting it chronologically for you, Category: GM Nostalgia. So while looking at the first map and the second map, it appears to me that the first level is some sort of huge building, set before a mountain…

GM Nostalgia #4 – The Lich’s Pet Dungeon Rooms 42-56

Back due to popular demand! (one can hope as much) I now present to you, the final rooms of the first dungeon map i ever made. I have come to remember that the dungeon was created by a Lich and the day to day business is run by a chaotic cleric who lives in the dungeon. But the pet dungeon is merely the first level.. After room 56, there is an entire new map and it doesn’t stop there. Two more maps follow after the 2nd level! But i’m getting…

GM Nostalgia #3 – The Lich’s Pet Dungeon Rooms 21-41

Hi again, I’ve been busy, last week launching Galens Gamble adventure while typing up the next 20 rooms of the Lich’s Pet Dungeon and I’m also working on another product “Gork Sketches” a collection of my character sketches. But ontowards the dungeon content! There are a few empty room in this part, maybe you got some good ideas for stuffing? I’m dying to know! Lets get too it then! Room 21-41 of the Lich’s Pet Dungeon Room 21 A: empty and dusty chance of finding 1d6 coins Room 22 The…

GM Nostalgia #2 – Rooms 1-20 of the first dungeon

Last week i decided to take you back to my humble beginnings, to show you my very first home made dungeon. I made it back in 199x i believe. I started roleplay when i was about 15, D&D Basic and soon became embroiled in the AD&D 2nd edition by the established roleplayers. One of my earliest roleplay memories is playing Tasselhof Burrfoot. As a GM i also remember one of my favorite monsters was the rolling Juggernaught, 4 wheels, a ram and a small square housing driving around dungeons and…

GM Nostalgia #1 – My First Dungeon Map

I’m sure if you have ever been a GameMaster you sometimes suffer from the same nostalgic rememberance as i do. That particular dungeon, or that monster you created yourself or the first time you killed a playercharacter. I was going through my box with old, oooold papers from all my roleplaying years. It was quite fun to sit there and go through all my old maps and handwritten stories and notes. This was back before i even had a typewriter and no internet, at best i had a library and…
