I really like this black and white map of the Nentir Vale from Brennan O'Brien.

That's really awesome.

Brennan said something about a 5e sandbox game set in Nentir Vale, in that group. Do you think he has anything else created for his game?

It makes me Dreams if an OSR version of Nentir Vale, powered by LL AEC.

That would be a lot of fun. It might be a challenge to create all of the various Nentir Vale races for LL AEC. You could run it with the core races, but I'm not sure it would feel like the Nentir Vale without some of the uncommon races that are core to the setting (e.g., dragonborn and tieflings at a minimum).

I was going to ask on G+, but you beat me to it. :)

Funny you should say that - one of the reasons I am making the Nentir Vale Encyclopedia is so that I can translate the Vale into Labyrinth Lord as I go. It will be a multi-year project, probably (because life is like that), but it is doable I think.

I think it is definitely possible, but may be slightly tricky to do it without overpowering them (the dragonborn's breath weapon, for example).

Very cool. Are you using AEC? Or will you create race-as-class classes for some of the new races?

To be honest I haven't decided that yet. I lean toward race-as-class, but when I start to really get into the nitty gritty of the conversion/creation it may turn out to make more sense with the AEC.

And I had to sign up to that community too.

He doesn't seem to have seen my reply yet.

I'd love to know more about this map.

Good luck with that. Do start a separate topic, if you ever get going. :)

(I've kind of stalled on my own project (to convert Spelljammer to 3rd Edition D&D) so I know how much work these things can be, and wish you the best of luck.)

I would encourage you to code-share with Zeromaru X and anyone else with an overlapping interest, if you can do that. It might help one of the Nentir Vale projects move forward faster. :)

Hey guys,

What questions can I answer? Sorry, took me a while to get over here to respond.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Here's a couple zoomed in maps of my starting campaign area -- Easthill. After a funnel adventure in which many of the militia were sent by Baron Harken to rescue villagers who had been kidnapped and were being sacrificed to evil deities, the survivors (now first level) are being sent to Easthill to assist after the Baron received word the town elder had died.

Here's the first map, with hexes

And without hexes....

These are great, too. Thanks for sharing them!

Are you planning to map other parts of the Vale?
