Stranger in a Strange Land, continued

As I continue my adventures abroad, I’ve been forced to see the world through a bit of a different lens. Back home we live in a relatively flat world, spread out across the land at a few stories above the ground at most. Here I’m seeing old and new mixed everywhere, with height and deceptive…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 31

Today we focus on the last room on the first floor of the Haunted Mansion (Heroic Maps) (don’t worry – there’s a lovely little crypt on the property we’ll deal with separately next week). This room appears to be the study, complete with bookcases, a desk, chair, chest, and another fancy carpet. From what I’ve…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 30

We’re down to the last two days of my 31 Days challenge and the last two rooms of Heroic Maps’ Haunted Mansion (though I’m going to keep going to see what the full story becomes over the next few weeks). Today we go across the hall from the room with the cockeyed table and chairs…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 29

With only 3 days left in the challenge, we’re down to 3 rooms (my count was off yesterday) on the first floor of the Haunted Mansion from Heroic Maps. Today’s room is on the front of the house and holds some intriguing clues to its part in the story. With two doors, one from the…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 27

For the last few days we’ve been working through the ground floor of the Haunted Mansion map (by Heroic Maps) one room at a time. We started at the front door, followed a blood trail from the entryway into the drawing room, then found our way to the dining room yesterday. Today we find ourselves…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 26

Today we continue our investigation of the Haunted Mansion (one of Heroic Maps’ Halloween offerings) and enter one of the other key rooms of the first floor… the dining room. Like the drawing room we focused on a couple of days ago, this is another important area on this level. Three doors and a stairwell…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 25

As we continue working our way through the Haunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps, today we find ourselves in a wholly unremarkable room, passing through the door on the north wall (the wall to the left of the fireplace). It may be a simple corridor or a place for some storage, but whatever…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 24

Yesterday we entered the Haunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps through the front door and wandered into an entryway full of potential paths. Today, we are going to head through the first door to the right of the front door… And if you recall, this was the door with a small blood trail…

31 Days of Halloween, Day 23

Last time we described the front door of the Haunted Mansion map from the folks at Heroic Maps. What do you say we walk into the foyer to see what else we can find? Taking a close look at the map, there a number of things in the room we can use… A large vase…
