I made a rest stop with an inn, a bakery, and a blacksmith in Dungeon alchemist. Pretty cool.

Was finally able to pick up Dungeon Alchemist.

For fast indoor maps, it’s pretty cool-though I think I may stick with Dungeondraft for the most part.

For outdoor maps, though. This is COOL.

Planned a wonky battle and didn’t want to railroad the players to it, there were so many possibilities I had to map out potential events so I could roll with party actions. It ended up looking like this.

Here’s the painting my friend did of the Broken Tree, at least… and early version of it.

So from one of the interactions I had at my table last night, I needed to create a holy symbol that was used by the characters in my mini-campaign. It turns out it’s a abstract image of an actual landmark, which they did not know was real - the broken tree.

The order it comes from just through it symbolized their desire to restore the world. Here is is.

A friend of mine drew the actual tree for me, I need to find that image somewhere.

I am so happy. My first D&D experience was Moldvay's Basic set, and my first crawl was the Haunted Keep mini dungeon. It is ingrained in my brain even after decades. So when I picked up the Basic PDF it was so nice to see again. And tonight, as most of the regular players were otherwise occupied, I decided to take a smaller group on a side quest, and made The Haunted Keep in Dungeondraft. We ran it tonight and it was such a memory rush for me.

I'm going to have to run a side quest with a reduced party tomorrow night. I was wondering what do that would be a nice short trip out in the country. I usually just make up a situation, but then I thought about the intro dungeon I used to run myself through decades ago, and thought, "That would be fun." So I made that old map in Dungeondraft. If you every read Moldvay Basic, it should be familiar...
