    Wip [June/July Lite] The Mad Tomb of Alleifr

    *Thanks to Donjon Name Generator for being awesome for improvising names to things I haven't yet sketched*

    *Juggernaut stands at the doorway and tosses in his gauntlet*

    Yep, I'm in. My more diabolical side got the best of me. My nefarious plan and location is a tomb. Let me call it a "Tomb a la Gygax". Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to not get horridly mutilated by the end of this. Your prize, survival.

    I'm planning to make a good ol' fashioned tomb of death, mostly player death... the rest of the place is undead... and traps... oh LET THERE BE TRAPS!

    I'm not sure if I want to head down my previous "horror map" road of having a blood-soaked parchment as the only evidence of the existence of the Mad Tomb of Alleifr... but it's tempting. It will certainly be distressed, possibly as much as the players will be if they ever wandered into it.

    Stay tuned for the flaying...

    I've decided to do another "Report" Type entry. This one is the archaeology notes made by Lord Maericyn, Kings Scholar and Duke of Waldbecot on his discovery of the Tomb of Mad Alleifr (aka King Alleifr the Fourth of Trimodvik). Preamble text done now. Much more to come soon.

    Caslon Antique (this is the Italics version)

    It reminds me of those older books that would have "Figure 3: ....." under the pictures.

    Thanks Jugg. I googled around, but there are many fonts called like this, even commercial ones, but I didn't found the one you are using. Do you have an URL?
    Btw, it's looking very good so far

    I have no idea where I got it originally.
    Caslon Antique Italics is what I'm using. It was a free download from one of the aggregator sites for free fonts.
