The Grinning Frog is delighted to present for the inspiration of all Dungeon Masters out there a map page from the archives of legendary Rogue and Adventurer Jimmy the Quick. The map is annotated with Jimmy's own thoughts outlining his experiences as he stealthed his way through this dungeon. It also says why he was there in the first place and whether he achieved his goal. THIS IS MAP FIVE IN A TWELVE MAP SERIES … all of which combine together in one continuous story. Each map can be used independently but by owning all twelve you will see a story arc unfold! Hopefully this combined series will help generate even more story and adventure ideas! What you see is what you get ... this is a one page map in 300dpi which outlines a dungeon with numbered rooms.
