    Default Dragon Lance DL1 Dungeon Map - Old School

    I have been trying my hand at drawing some "old school blue" maps from torstan's TUT on how to make an old school map.

    This map is from the old TSR 9130 Dragon Lance - Dragons of Despair.
    (I also need someone to show me how to do the "thumb" size that links to the large size map).

    This map is only the layout.

    If this is copyright material, let me know and I'll remove this. It says "Permission granted to photocopy or print this product for personal use". (I dont want to do anything illeagle).

    Ok, I modified the dungeon so as I wont infringe on any copyright stuff.

    Ok this is complete!

    looks good
    to create a thumb you click "go advanced", then "manage attachment", "add files", and then just press done - the system will automatically make the thumb.
    concerning the copyright of the stuff - I know Wizards have put a lot of old stuff out to free use - so if its amongst that, I'm guessing you're safe. If it's not I'll have to check with the more experienced CL's what the rules are

    Personal use means you can make your own copy to pencil in changes for your campaign or cut up to give your players a room at a time. Putting it on the web is publishing and about as far from private use as you can get. Not that I expect WOTC/Hasbro will really care, but unless it has been specifically released for general use, this is a copyright violation. (Disclaimer: The previous is my own best understanding of copyright law. I am, however, not a lawyer, and this is not intended as legal advice. Should you need legal advice concerning a matter of intellectual property rights, consult a lawyer specializing in intellectual property law.)

    "This map is from the old TSR 1931 Dragon Lance - Dragons of Despair. "
    Wow, I didn't realize D&D was that old. :-)

    lol... yeah.. so I went to wizards homepage to find the scenarios, took some time to find the page cause there navigation really sucks.. .they should hire someone like me to fix it *lol* ... but here it is: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/downloads
    Unfortunatly, the link to the old scenarios leads nowhere, if that is a mistake (which it should be since the link is there) or not I don't know. But nothing is for download at the moment.

    I posted an email to WotC about this issue, if I get a "it's Copyrighted" back, I'll delete the image. Actually, what ever they respond with, I'll post here. Tilt, should I delete the image until then? I also dont want to get into trouble here.

    Here is thier reply:

    Lee,

    Thank you for contacting Wizards of the Coast regarding the usage of its intellectual property. Unfortunately, Wizards is unable to grant you permission to use its intellectual property in the manner you have requested.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions!


    I'll remove the image right now.
