This site is mostly about my 1980-1985 paper and pencil Advanced Dungeons and Dragons campaign. I have added maps and content since I created this blog.

We played many times. At first we only played once a week. At my peak of refereeing, I ran 5 games a week from 2 to 8 hours each in 3 different game stores with one weekly session at home.

We stopped playing in 1985/1986 as it was just taking up too much of my time.

Years later, I found web pages had been invented. I also found the mapping software, Campaign Cartographer 2.

I started small, one map a week, in 1999. Oceans, cities, towns, castles, ruins, nations. At first I scanned my old paper maps, 5mm hexagon and square grid paper. Imported the BMPs into CC2, traced over them. Added symbols and text. Saved them as CC2 fcw files and pngs. Created my website, and uploaded the files.

These days I use Campaign Cartographer 3 with add-ons. I have created a number of new maps for this web site.

I have been using CC3+ for several years now.
