I probably should have asked this in October, but are there any Dungeoneers out there (besides myself) that are trying their hand at NaNoWriMo?
If you are, let me know. I’ve tried a few years, but never got to 50,000. Trying to do better this year and could always use group support.
Remember, that back to school sales can be a HUGE money saver for your game table. Paper, pencils, rulers, and cutting tools all go on sale. The biggest savings I’ve score is heavy paper stock for my print outs. Normally, this stuff is pretty pricey, but it usually goes on sale with the rest of the printer paper this time of year.
Also check out X-Acto blades and other “slicers” for easier cutting of your print outs.
Dry erase boards and markers are a good score as well. Possibly home laminators or plastic slip-covers for papers as well.

The folks over at BannersOnTheCheap.com contacted me about using them for printing dungeon maps. Sounds like a pretty cool idea, especially if you need something big and sturdy to use in your game setting.
Check them out and tell them Dungeoneering sent you! If you do use them, send me a photo of the finished product and I’ll show it here.
Not sure why I didn’t come up with this one sooner, but Game of Thrones is very inspiring in terms of game content. Not the least of which are names for swords. Great swords in that world all have names so their history can be passed down from owner to owner.
I’ll leave it up to you to add attributes (if any) to the weapon.
(metaphorically speaking, of course)
I did ice last week, so it seems only fitting that fire gets a go this week.Fire Stone Map Pieces (1226)
Use it for lava (or magma) based dungeons. Volcanoes or even temples to an angry fire god. Up to you.
Have a suggestion for the next set, let me know!
