Call me old fashioned, but I suspect that 'publishing' this in the form of a pdf to a few collector guys here for free, isn't going to bring a court case down around anyones ears...

That's a cool find, Jeff.  It reminds me a bit of some of my early homebrews, back when I had time to really put effort into them.  Though I don't think I ever did any cover art.   :lol:

If PDFs are produced, I'd be happy to take a copy.  Maybe I can run Frank and the rest of our regular group through it.

Making .pdfs is a very generous offer, thanks Jeff:  I'll definitley take one.  It's always fun to see what folks were doing with their home games :D

Ok so I am making the PDF today, what is the best way to post it?  I would like to put it somewhere where people can just go to it and download.  Unfortunately being completely inept at all stuff computers I do not know how to do it.  Any advice?

If you mail it to me, I'll host it in my Acaeum webspace and post the link in the thread. It can stay there indeffinately.

Ok Sound good.  

Well the PDF is done so for now if anybody who wants one can e-mail me at [email protected] and I can send the file.  Perhaps you (mbassoc2003)  :)  can upload it to the acaeum for general consumption.

BTW the file is 5.59MB so it may bounce for some people. (sorry I do not know how to compress a PDF file)

*Edit*  just reduced it to 1.4 MB with a few keystrokes on acrobat :)

I'm sure we all wrote our own dungeons, but I never typed them all up. I'm saving it for the weekend to read.

TBH I started mine out on handwritten and then at the (late dawn) of the Word processor an Amstrad PCW 8256 no less! I started typing them up and even had a rolladeck type thing for NPCs.  :oops:

But then went back to writing the adventures and just typing up the towns, cities or major houses etc in a place. All good fun and this find also brings back memories.  :lol:
