    Map December/January Challenge: Dungeoneering 101

    Do not choose the room containing the alter and creepy floor carvings resembling a summoning circle as your campsite.

    Everyone else was doing outdoor campsites, so I opted to go for a mid-dungeon crawl rest site. I also had fun playing with textures that I had never done before.

    In non-map news, I have spent way too much time trying to figure out how to attach the dang thing as a thumbnail. Can someone give me a hand? Preferably in itty bitty baby steps. Thanks in advance.

    Aha! You don't tell it where to put the image. I was adding in unnecessary steps. Thanks a bunch!

    Bah, by the time I got a visual made up it's over

    I always make my campsites in the room where the rituals are - more chance for killing baddies with good loot instead a chunk of tinder and a torch.

    You rest when you still have enough hp and spells to take on summoned baddies?

    I'm still trying to figure out how to add a handle to the door and have it look good...

    That's the place to camp. At least you're guarding it. Otherwise, you're leaving the summoning room available to call in who knows what while you sleep.

    Or maybe it's not visible when the party beds down for the night and while they sleep it gradually comes to life and something steps into the room with them? ewwwww, that's scary

    hehe... I remember in Order of the Stick (GREAT free online comic) when once they camped at nightfall - and the characters were confused about camping and talking about they usually only camped when they had to heal and get their spells back - normal day/night rythms confused them *lol*
