  1. Excellent idea! I always enjoyed reading those.

  2. Hands up if you already have all this good stuff saved and printed?

    *raises hand*

  3. This is great material - will this be a PDF compilation?

  4. @Erin - I'm pondering doing a compilation .pdf, but still have more to write on the subject before I do. Most of the random charts are in the 2009 Compendium, though (link down on the right).

  5. Thanks for gathering all these links in one place.

  6. Thanks. Nice to see it all together.

  7. I wish you were coming to the NTRPG Con, Al, I'd put you on the Megadungeon Design panel seminar with Rob Kuntz, Paul Jaquays, Allan Grohe and Jason Cone!!!

  8. Great idea Al :)

  9. @Badmike - I wish I was going too! :(

    I hope someone thinks to Youtube that panel...

  10. *raises hand* Yeah, I also vote for a compilation pdf.

  11. @ Al: we would have happily welcomed your company in the panel. Once Doug and Mike have a few days rest, I'm sure they'll be posting the videos from the con, including all of each of the seminars.

    Doug's investigating streaming video for next year's seminars, too.


  12. This is amazing! Thank you sooo much!

  13. meh megadungeon, will release in pdf for free later this year...
