RPGNow were still selling the PDF of the Quickstart Rules with the Castle Zagyg stuff in it up until very recently, so maybe that was something they missed.

Damn, Ian, scorched earth!!!   8O

But yeh Joe's stuff is really great looking, both professional in writing and appealing in how it looks. I'm pretty sure I'm scrapping the megadungeon I'm working on to just plug in Joe's version. Let him do all the hard work!

I do love Joe's stuff, and I like the big poster maps in both white/blue and colour when he manages to get them posted. It's beed a colossal effort on his part, and one that deserves donations. Yes! Donate just $10 by PayPal. The guy deserves it.

:D  Yeah, scorched earth. I really gets my goat when I offer to help out something that could be an important work, and I get snubbed in favour of something that turns out a major F-up. DF seem to be very cliquey and anal about things, or maybe it's just the moderators.

Just downloaded the whole thing and it was under 4MB, looks good and has the old school feel and maps!

Looking forward to having a good read through this.  :)

Makes me want to produce my own, although I'd be interested to know the software available for blue maps?

Joe Bardales is using CC3 for these.  If you want more details, let me know, and I'll see what he has to say.

That'd be cool, thanks.  :)

EDIT - I have a copy of CC3 by the way, but haven't looked into deeply so haven't found the blue map style maps to use.

You can download the April release from the link in the blog archive. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, click 'older posts' and you'll find it somewhere on the next cople of pages.
It's a shame they stopped doing the Undermountain style coloured maps for this.

Tried that before I asked, the file was locked.  But I have it now thanks to TheHistorian.

I'll find out if there have been other requests for them.  If so, maybe I can the mapper to crank them out.

They were a really polished product (even full size level maps would be a bolus to the quartered ones). I think he did levels 3 through 5 or something.

There will be full sized poster maps once we're done.  Whether they'll be classic blue and white or something else isn't decided yet.

Ah. That old gem.
I was wondering when someone would enhance it and wondering if enyone had the original camera image.
Imagine what that black folder would fetch at a GenCon auction.

Tell me what I just downloaded....

Is this the complete module in its most recent form?

Or, is it the lastest installment in the module?
