  • Path Dungeon of the Dragon to the Lava River

    Left side:

    Wood debris, green mold area with wood debris appears to move out of the corner of the eye, but not when the characters look at it.

    The pits, 1 in 6 chance they are not holes, but mud. Something in the mud will attack passersby.

    Cross the bridge, there are 3 piles of skulls beside the path.

    Wood debris and mold.

    Right side:

    Stalagmites ( on the floor ), trap doors, these pits are holes in the ground. The sizes seem to vary as the characters look at them.

    More stalagmites, a circular tile that will say hello to passersby. Typically its says 'Is it hot in here ?'.

    A crack in the ground, next to the lava pit which bubbles and sometimes spashes onto the path.

    These pits are holes in the ground. The sizes seem to vary as the characters look at them.

    Exit from Flame Keep basement narrow corridor to this map.

    This passageway widens out to 20 feet wide and 12 feet high.

    Left side:

    solid lava to the sides of the path.

    First tower: all the characters see is a shadow on the ground. No stone works.

    Second tower: stone works, but no shadows.

    Way Point: some broken rock, could have been a small building, or a hand.

    Right Side:

    Sign post: Confusion Ahead !

    Blue area, murky water, could be deadly to drink or wash with

    Way Point: A row of stones marking the four sides of what was once a building.

    Next Way Point: Stones are glowing a sickly green. The longer the characters stay here, the worse they feel.

    Greenish area, smell likes something is rotting.

  • Ice Cave 495' x 400'

    ice_cave.fcw

    Entrance lower left. Inspection of the cliffs by a character with mining skills like a dwarf will notice they look artificial. Some brush that can live in ice conditions, rock debris, sand areas, a broken bridge across the ice filled river. Water flow is lower right to upper left. Two cold water sharks have just arrived, looking for food.

    A broken small keep at the top of the map.



    Lava river 500' x 400'

    lava_river.fcw

    Entrance upper right. Looks like a stone bridge crossed the lava flow at one time. Three broken keeps.

    Wood and rock debris. No sign of treasure.



    All done. I think. Please let me know of any corrections.

  • My contact with my web host, new owners, may start charging us volunteers for our sites. So if my sites suddenly disappear, you'll know why. I've looked but currently cannot find a similar setup for what I can afford. I currently have 9 gigabytes of files, mysql databases, 18 sites, Textpattern cms, etc.

  • I just went over all of these. It looks like I'll have some different maps for my Tunnels and Trolls site, than the ones I submitted above. I'm tired, so I'm going to stop now before I make mistakes I don't catch.

    22 maps for the Atlas and 24 for my T&T site.

    Oops ! I forgot the map between Dungeon of Confusion and Cold Keep. I'm working on it.

  • And here it is.

    Path Cold Keep to Dungeon of Confusion

    map: path_cold_keep_to_confusion.fcw

    The farther the characters get away from Cold Keep, the warmer the air.

    Path Cold Keep to Dungeon of Confusion

    Exit from Cold Keep basement narrow corridor to this map.

    Left side:

    Ice lakes to the sides of the path.

    First Tower: all the characters see is a group of rocks that could have been stone walls.

    Second Tower: stone works, but wobbling shadows.

    Third Tower: glows green

    Way Point: some broken rocks that if put back together form a hand.

    Right Side:

    Sign post: Warm Yet ?

    Blue area, murky water, could be deadly to drink or wash with

    Way Point: A doorway in stone. Nothing else there.

    Greenish area, smell likes something is rotting.


    I need a rest.

  • 8 days later
  • There are some problems with some of these maps. Likely first week of December before I can work on them.

    My websites are moving to a new web host.

    I am getting more rest.

  • My forum editing skills aren't working today.

    Here is a re-do of Cold Keep.

    Symbols changed, new map. All I've done so far.

    Ricko HascheLoopysue
  • I'm working on them. But I'm also moving my web sites.

  • Most of my sites I'm moving are moved. I printed out the info Remy sent me. Not shopping tomorrow. Later.

    Looked in my .mnu files, they were pointing to the old folders, not the new folders for the CSUAC symbols. Fixed.


    I had CSUAC and CSUAC_2. The first one are the old files. I renamed CSUAC to something else, and CSUAC_2 to CSUAC. And when I looked at Vintyri's website, they mention 2.3... I think I installed 2.1. I'm reinstalling everything at I see blanks in the fscs when I load them. I'm sure its all my doing.

  • MonsenMonsen Administrator 🖼️ 46 images Cartographer

    You shouldn't rename the artwork directories. That will break the symbol catalogs. And, if you use symbols from renamed folders in the map, it won't be compatible with other peoples CSUAC installation, and thus won't work for the atlas. The most recent version of the CSUAC should reside in a folder called CSUAC_2, CSUAC is the old folder for the outdated version.

    I had the CSUAC from 2017, the newest are from 2021. The ones from 2017 are the ones I moved.

    CSUAC_2 is the one I'm reinstalling as I have lots of blanks and red Xs.

    Looks like I had 2.1, I've downloaded and installing 2.3.

  • My internet provider must have decided I need to log off. No connection.

    I'm redownloading all of 2.3 and reinstalling. I'm just gonna stop for now.

  • To clarify my earlier post. I was getting red xs before I moved anything.

  • A few years ago a MS update messed up programs I had purchased. I think it did it again, which is why I'm reinstalling.

  • My internet provider is playing with my connectivity. I'm not sure i have a file in my backups I'm trying to download. But Internet download manager is getting it.

    Thanks Sue.

  • Well. Downloading parts my connection stays up. I'm still working on the maps.

  • Extra things going on this week, not sure I'll be able to work on this.
