    Wip February Entry: U-Turn Challenge

    Nothing fancy here, just an old school dungeon drawn up with CC2...

    The U-Turn Challenge: Enter through one door and exit the other. Couldn't be simpler, right?

    This dungeon can serve as a proficiency test for mercenary adventurers or as a form of punishment. I've made a rough "sketch" of the floorplan; there will also be a large cavern.

    Nice to see more entries.

    Here's another WIP update. I've been working on the text for the encounters and will be hard pressed to squeeze it all onto one page with the map.

    If you need more room for text then you have two options:

    1. smaller font size
    2. make everything else smaller in order to fit the text

    So what I'd do is put everything together on one layer (except for text and paper) and then shrink that down to 75%...need more space then go 67% then 50% etc.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    I should have clarified that I'm inserting the map into a Word document and writing the text in NTR 8 point, which seems to be the limit for readability in printed form. Maybe if I do everything in PS I can fit more.

    After a lot of editing I managed to make everything fit. Here is a snapshot of the Word document (sorry about the poor quality).

    Ah sorry, my bad. Don't know the answer to this but are small fonts more legible if they are serif or sans?? Does anyone know?
