Earlier in the week, I posted about me using the results of a solo Scrabble-like game to create dungeon maps for RPGs. This has prompted a couple of people to contact me.
First, I am told that 'Found Maps' are a thing. I thought it probably was, given the human proclivity for seeing patterns in random things.
Secondly, I want to flag that Goblin's Henchman has come up with at least two methods of creating random maps: -
- a game of Battleships as a template for a grid-crawl,
- the faces of a Rubik's Cube (an entry for the 2020 One Page Dungeon Contest).
When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay
To keep me happy all the day.
And sometimes for an hour or so
I watched my leaden soldiers go,
With different uniforms and drills,
Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;
And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
All up and down among the sheets;
Or brought my trees and houses out,
And planted cities all about.
I was the giant great and still
That sits upon the pillow-hill,
And sees before him, dale and plain,The pleasant land of counterpane.
