Dyson posted this awhile ago. And it has stuck with me. The idea of not pre planning is a good thing!
Lately I've been looking at all the Basic Fantasy modules - www.basicfantasy.org and as I stated the next session with the newbs were are probably going to start with "beneath brymassen", which is in the Adventure Anthology. After that I don't know. I'm guessing it will be another BF module. I think what I will do is draw the map like dyson, as the sessions go on. The only thing I need to fill in is a few specific details like God's, rulers, factions and go from there. And of course rumours!
So I suppose disregard the previous post.
And I'll keep you posted.
As a side note: I've been thinking a lot about my giant mega dungeon, and I think what I am going to do is throw out all the maps I drew a few years ago, and start from absolute scratch! Eventually it will be released. Eventually. It's funny, working on a big project, it almost depresses you when it takes to much time. I've often found that with recording album projects that take a long time. I once worked on a set of records that took two years to complete. You start to question everything. What I would like to do, is go back thru what I've written (about 50 pages or so), and pull the best bits as I create the maps. I know exactly what I did wrong. I drew all the maps first. What I think I will do is draw a map, write that section. And repeat. The other thing is I believe that I've got a bit better at drawing maps. I had a random dream the other night that I was actually attempting to draw pictures for it as well. So I may even start doing that. I am however no artist, but the idea of doing as much of it by myself as possible appeals to me. It appeals to the DIY punk ethic.
Right, well its friday! I hope you are all playing some RPG's this weekend! May those rolls be 20's and the God's be in your favour.
