GM Nostalgia #14– My first Underdark Map

Underdark Fascination

This time my GM Nostalgia series is about something i have been wanting to share with you for some time. It is a product of my late teen fascination with Drow and the Underdark its my first Underdark Map!

I made this not long after having read the dark elf triology and this was my attempt at mapping a huge network of tunnels dead ends and caves. This must have been made around 1991-9ish when i was very fascinated by the dark elf society and their dangerous underground world. To this day i still read new books about Drizzt and back in the 90s i had a friend who purchased the Menzorbarranzan box set it was AWESOME!

As i have told in previous GM Nostalgia posts i had a thing for drawing maps when i was in my late teens so it was only natural that i attempted to draw The Underdark. Naturally the 3 cities mentioned in the Dark elf triology made it onto the map no surprise there.

I dont recall actually getting around to use it though and im not sure i ever would tracking a partys progress could get abit heavy. I am not sure how exactly i would take on the task of guiding a party around these tunnels would/could you ?

I hope you enjoy these GM Nostalgia trips down my personal memory lane as much as i do! Not only that but i hope my old stuff finds a use with new people because that is what TinyGork is really all about sharing my imagination with other GMs.

Thats all for now Gork ya later!
