One Page Dungeon Entry

I just submitted my entry to this year's One Page Dungeon Contest, titled In the Moon Bog. Despite the name similarity to the Lovecraft tale, it draws no inspiration from that story. Of course, readers may note some HPL influence hidden in there regardless.

When I decided to enter the contest, I knew I wanted to do something more than a simple dungeon. In the Moon Bog is designed to be a mini sand-box campaign, with only one encounter area drawn up in detail. Other areas noted on the map can be fleshed out however the referee chooses, and may be perfect for utilizing other one-page dungeons. That's my hope anyway. Hope you all find it useful.

The adventure is kind of gonzo science-fantasy, suitable for any old-school D&D or games like Mutant Future, Gamma World and the like. I chose not to determine any statistics for the adventure, so it is up to the referee to stat and scale the adventure to his system of choice. After the contest ends, I may revisit this to stat the adventure out.

The maps were drawn by hand and altered digitally (corrections, text and shading). I chose not to use a scale or hexes, allowing the referee to make his or her own decision on the matter. The Moon Bog may be a two-mile area or a 50-mile wide maze of marsh. Layout done with Scribus.

EDIT: I noticed that some of the italic fonts were not reading correctly. I updated the file on 4/25.

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting!
I have created this blog to discuss projects I am working on, both personal and professional, as well as to display my cartography and (sometimes) art. I am looking for freelance work in the role-playing industry and have years of experience with a number of different systems. Feel free to contact me for projects at!

My work can currently be seen in issue #6 of  AFS Magazine and I have an adventure module upcoming from North Wind Adventures, titled Forgotten Fane of the Coiled Goddess for the Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerers of Hyperborea game. Inspired by the classic module Isle of Dread, pulp literature, wuxia films and the lost world tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Abraham Merritt and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Forgotten Fane provides a pulp adventure, a complete add-on micro-setting, and a handful of new monsters and equipment specific to the setting. This will be available via Kickstarter, along with two other adventures (Ghost Ship of the Desert Dunes by Jeffrey Talanian and Beneath  the Comet by Ben Ball) soon and I will be sure to notify everyone here.

I can regularly be found haunting the AS&SH forums, the Original D&D Discussion forums, Dragonsfoot, and the Delving Deeper forums. I'm also on Google+!
