Middle-Southlands Map

Seems I am on a map-making tear rather than a campaign-development tear.

Reading through the OD&D boxed set and the B/X books of late, combined with several recent requests for the Hexographer file for my old Southands map, caused me to return to that map and see what more I could do with it.

So I thought to myself, "Self, what would 13-year old you do with this material and Hexographer?"

And so I present to you a map of "Middle-Southland," combining the Outdoor Survival map with OD&D, B/X, and a few other choice bits of D&D, with Middle-earth (and a dash of Shannara, I suppose), as I probably would have drawn back when I first read through Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion.

Grab a copy of the map, pull out your OD&D box or B/X (or Labyrinth Lord) books, and get together online with your buddies, and let your 13-year old selves do some exploration...

  1. Love this - tapping into the unencumbered creativity of the less ordered and style-polished mind of the 13-year old brings something very potent to rpg. Definitely an under-used well these days.
