Is that a Lich riding a Purple Worm? :o :ugeek:

I wonder if we could make an adventure based on these? We already have a dungeon map! :twisted:

That reminds me a great deal of the dungeon in the back of the AD&D Coloring Book, from about the same time.

I would turn this into a magic item. Towel Of Summoning.
Just off the top o me head, when you touch the image of the creature on the towel and speak the activation word, the touched creature appears and obeys the summoner. (10% chance that the creature does not obey the summoner and attacks him/her instead) Can only be used once a day.
The ? is a mystery creature selected by the DM. :twisted:

The real question would be who created such an item that says 'Advanced Dungeons & Dragons' on it and how did it get into the campaign world. :D

If the Unapproachable East was so unapproachable, how did anyone get there?

Cool- I've never seen these before. That sorceress in the middle looks a bit like it might be (or at least be based on) Charmay, the good enchantress from the LJN toy line. Her hair is the wrong color, though.
