I can neither confirm, nor deny, that this is Baba Yaga’s hut…

(Nifty storehouse design by the Sámi people that keeps the crops/etc away from dampness, untimely floods, and many animals!)

In a serendipitous (and amazing) addition to the official Trail Map, here’s a post that features the original Forgotten Realms map as drawn by the Realms creator, Ed Greenwood!

Gaming Thursday: Trail Maps

October 24, 2019

Back in 1990, TSR released a pair of maps:  one of the (western) Forgotten Realms, the other of Kara-Tur.  They called them Trail Maps, and these were no simple poster-sized map; much like the name suggests, they unfolded like a road map to massive size.  Put the two together and you got the whole of the realms some 72”+ wide.  It was epic.  I had them on my wall for quite some time.

One of the benefits of working at an architecture firm is access to a full-colour large-format roll scanner.  I think you know where this is leading… both trail maps, scanned and merged, with a bit of added continent to the south, all ready for your campaigning pleasure:

Enjoy!

Heroforge now has centaur models!  Rejoice!

As someone who has long enjoyed playing centaurs (and other taurs!) in D&D, this is exciting news for me.  And if you’re not familiar with Heroforge, well, consider this doubly great news, for now you’ve learned about a site that you can make and order customized 3D printed minis for your character.  It’s as awesome as it sounds.

And hey, if you like centaurs, wemics, and other taurs (or even yuan ti) as much as I do, I’ve written a supplement for D&D 5e so you can add them into your game:

Check it out!

This… is all shades of both interesting/bizzare…

… and hilarious if you follow one of the comments’ suggestions and replace the redacted areas with classic D&D names:

“Vecna considers GYGAX to be eccentric . . .”

“Tiamat added that . . .”

“Mordenkainen advised that GYGAX…”

“… his knowledge of “The Tomb of Horrors”, also known as FRESNO.”
