Earlier today I posted the Seven Secret Maps that I mailed off at the beginning of the month to an unsuspecting Badger. Now I can tell you that I did this as part of a much larger plan of terror. Originally I was going to hold this post off until tomorrow, but the Badger has figured it out. And I was scooped by another blog too!
The Seven Secret Maps can be assembled into four basic “sets” of maps that I used when I was drawing them, as such:
Already with them in their “proper” places, I feel there’s a good chance some of you have already figured out the secret. But for those that haven’t, here’s what happens when you overlay them:
At this point it is pretty academic, but let’s also throw in the colours that were described for the floors on the original maps I posted yesterday:
And then take away the hatching and the walls….
And the Secret Dungeon of Ponies is revealed!
You see, there are “some people” in the RPG community who are engaged in what has become known as “the #PonyWar” and I was recruited into it by Eric & Stephanie Franklin and worked up this elaborate map set for Jason Paul “the Badger” McCartan of Infinibadger Games & OSRToday.
It was a riot to put together.
this has inspired me to create a pagan religion dedicated to worshipping colorful ponies for my world. I’m thinking badass orc riders and barbarians who breed horses to select for unique coat colors and pray to a pink pony that rides with the sun at dawn and dusk!
#ponywar? FFS. Is that a -gate or something? I hope it’s just a wargame that uses My Little Ponies.
Interesting idea though to hide a message in a series of dungeon maps.
