Judges Guild - Misc


By Dave Arneson, co-author of Dungeons & Dragons. Two 17"x22" maps (one for players, one for the Judge) showing wilderness around the famous Blackmoor Castle, and a giant 64-page booklet detailing the assorted baronies, citadels, leaders histories and development of the original fantasy role-playing campaign, and the entire Blackmoor Dungeon as Judged by Arneson. The maps are printed on high-quality brown pebble-grain stock, designed to last a long time. Herein are many new guidelines on lair generation, character interests and vocations (hunting, farming, fishing, trapping, etc.), the resources and manpower of the various feudal holdings and nomadic hordes of this landmark in wargaming, and much more. Carefully mapped are the twelve levels of Blackmoor Dungeon beneath the five levels of Blackmoor Castle, the village of Blackmoor, the home of Mello the Halfling, and the tower of Svenson's Freehold.
Four (blank) 17"x22" numbered hex-grid sheets, printed on both sides of high-quality brown pebble-grain stock for a total of eight grids. These are ideal for use by the Judge in creating his own wilderlands, and may be used for the standard D&D 5-mile wilderness hex. The sheets are printed in the same size as our standard Judges Guild City State campaign maps of the wilderland, so that the Judges may expand their works as they desire. Printed with a double-burning process, half-tones, these are very large (34 hexes long and 52 wide) and can be used for anything in any gaming system; they are as versatile and useful to the wargamer as notebook filler is to a student. Colored pencils and felt-tipped pens work beautifully on this surface and will not soak through.
Two 28.5"x22" sheets, each present deck plans of twenty different ships, small craft and equipment from Viking longships to dugout canoes. These are detailed right down to the wood graining in the individual deck planks; nail heads and rope ply of the riggin are visible in a truely fine work of art. The ships are hex-gridded in 25mm scale for use with miniatures. Included is a 32-page booklet with extensive technical descriptions, historical information on the cultures which used the various craft and equipment, and other gaming aids. These are suitable for use with any medieval or fantasy role-playing system currently in print, and ideal for campaign Judges wishing to expand their gaming horizons into maritime traffic and trade, and ram-and-cutlass naval warfare.
