I tell you what. Finding maps like these, to me, are goldmines. While not technically easy to interpret in the modern day or to the person who didn't write it over 30+ years ago, the awesome thing that these maps bring up is... memories. I, for one, LOVE seeing stuff like this. I love collecting stuff like this. I still have binders full of my old maps and worlds from the 80's in my collection. I still love going back to them to look at them. They're a window to the past. Even if you don't remember what every single one of those chicken scratches on that page were, it's still a piece of your history with the game. It was a part of a world that you created. And sometimes.. it's neat to just.. take it out and look at and just... think about what this thing was.. or remember it when it was used.
Nice! I just made a map with 1e dmg. The 10 foot standard kept throwing me off! What's the pool in room QQ do? Is it made of tears? >.<
The 9-15 result on the Magic Pools table is +-1d3 to a random characteristic (determined upon entering the pool, once per person, with each person getting their effect determined independently).
