Commentary On The Free Dragon's Foot OSR Map Resource - Dracolidius Castle For Your Old School Sword and Sorcery Campaign

Grab It Right Over HERE

The Dragon's foot blurb : 
A great map of a castle, useful as a dungeon or a lived in building.
This is a great little free map of a castle and makes a great location to explore for a party. One of the aspects of the AS&SH game that I love is the Green Death, a plague that has swept through Hyperborea and wiped clean the previous societies, peoples, and aspects of life in the setting.
This enables a DM to really use some weird locations in out of the places of the world. This map could be one of those locations. The disease that plagued the Hyperborea world has possibly left more questions then answers for the generations to come. There is a bit of Poe's 'The Masque of the Red Death' about AS&SH that seems to just lurk in the background and this castle might be used to convey that to the PCs.
This castle has an almost dream like quality about it that might also be used for other sword and sorcery games as well.
The map is simple, the locations well drawn out, the place is ready to be stocked with whatever the DM want to.
All in all this is a simple yet effective download that could be used for a complete night's adventure and entertainment. All that is missing is a few NPC's and some solid old school monsters!
