You got Peter and Grayson reversedRath Darkblade wrote:Short but sweet. I like it.
I like Peter's mispronouncing "Duergar" as "DROO-gar." Also Grayson's repeated conviction that he can get them out of the cave... followed by silence. (Right, Grayson).
Intriguing map. I'm not surprised that the "dragon" tells them to stay away from the duergar and driders. Those things are bad news when you're as low-level as Peter and Grayson are.
Also... what? So the dragon isn't a dragon? So who is he? Looks like a cleric or mage of some kind? But - wait...... usually only rangers can transform into animals. So is he a ranger?
Anyway, I like it. Thanks! Bring on the next one......
The blue and white map look is a reference to old D&D maps from 1st and 2nd Edition modules. (It's explained in the Easter Eggs portion of the site; because even the skulls on the map are an Easter Egg). For example, the classic Keep on the Borderlands module had a map that looked like this. So I thought it'd be fun to make a map that was a "harken" back to the days of old. (There's a site that can auto-generate random dungeons that I used to generate the map; and I've used for some dungeons for my own campaign!)
As for the mention of Driders and Duergar - you know there's a reason they're specifically mentioned on the map. We know that Pawl the Dorf ran into the Duergar...
As for the Dragon, he is indeed, still a dragon. It's simply a polymorph spell to assume human guise, and travel more easily among cities and what not, while keeping an eye on Peter and Grayson. The real questions is - what is this dragon's interest IN Peter and Grayson? Why care about them at all?
