Castle of the Mad Archmage January Release Now Available!

And so, back in stride, I present to you the next installment of the Castle of the Mad Archmage. This release takes us down through Level 8: The Lesser Caves. This one just flew onto the page as quickly as I could write it, a torrent of creativity that would not be stopped.

If I may say so myself, this level has a lot of really nice stuff in it. The northeast section is my favorite; there's not a dozen keyed encounters in the whole quadrant, but it's sure to befuddle players for quite some time.

Download the whole thing --> HERE <--

Next up, Level 9, which I'm almost certain will be released along with levels 10 and 11, since they all intersect massively and trying to pry one out of the others would not be an easy thing. As always, keep your eyes on the status box off to the right-- that'll let you know where things stand.

Also, just a reminder; I'll be running a couple of sessions of Castle of the Mad Archmage at Dreamation in Morristown, NJ next month. Hope to see some of you there!

Great news!

Will download it as soon as I get home from work! Looking forward to looking over the next installment. Now, if I could just get some unfortunate souls to go through it!! :o)

Thanks again! Keep up the great work!

Great job, as always! I continue to shamelessly pillage ideas (and inspiration) for my own megadungeon.

Awesome addition to the Castle! I Paypal'ed you some appreciation. Any idea if your cartographer extraordinaire will be making any more poster sized maps of the levels (seven and eight)?

Joseph said...

There are indeed poster maps on the way-- I have them for 7 & 8, but am waiting for a few other things before I post them.

And thanks for the donation; it's most appreciated!

I never get to post everywhere as often as I would like, but do want to say that I keep downloading this to run. Now that the Labyrinth Lord Advanced Edition Companion is almost out (hopefully this week!) I am running my group through the Castle. I have read through several of the levels many times in anticipation.

Is this pdf/project still alive and up and running? I click the link for the pdf and get an error. Looking to get 9-11!?
