Not that anyone's clamoring for this, but since it'll take me a while to clean up this drawing I thought I'd post it just in case someone wanted to run a party through in the meantime.
As I pull together the various elements of this Fallcrest drawing, a few thoughts occur:
- Who the hell is going to climb up and down a flight of stairs 15 stories high just to get their groceries? In the rain? No one, that's who. So I put in an elevator for the Porter's Guild to run.
- The original map has an awful lot of rubble and tumble-down walls. Now it's true that humans are lazy alcoholics, but it's been 110 years since the Bloodspears rumbled through! Don't you think someone might've organized a clean-up in the intervening decades? I do, so I patched the walls and cannibalized the rubble for more buildings.
- Marklehay having a personal forest within the confines of the city walls seems a bit odd. I've rerouted the approach to the Keep; the woods are smaller now and may end up just being ornamental.

A meme is going around the Grognards like the flu: Appendix N. The original Appendix N was Gary Gygax's list of inspirational books -- Conan, Lovecraft, etc. (here's a fun link: robertsongames fantasy booklist).
Instead of books, my Appendix N is a list of albums we were listening to while spending countless hours playing games in the basement.
