This is the first map in the Return to Quasqueton series where I re-imagine and remap the dungeon maps of the classic 1979 D&D adventure “In Search of the Unknown”. The three maps in the series are:
- Return to Quasqueton – Main Level
- Return to Quasqueton – Upper Level
- Return to Quasqueton – The Caverns
In Search of the Unknown is one of my favourite modules of all time. But there are times that the map annoys me as the main level is more hallway than rooms (and that’s with 38 rooms on that level). So today we get to explore an alternate version of that venerable dungeon.
I ended up splitting the main level of Quasqueton over two levels (the second will appear later this week). In the process I added a few new rooms to the dungeon layout and removed one or two.
I’ve also made a version of the map with the rooms numbered for use with the classic adventure module. The numbered rooms correspond with the original rooms in the adventure, and the lettered rooms are new to this map.
Both maps are 1200 dpi images with the squares being roughly 7mm per side. To make the squares 2 inches per side (appropriate size for miniatures, since the adventure uses 10 foot squares instead of 5 foot squares), you would have to blow it up about 7.25 times (which still has a resolution over 150 dpi, so it should look fine printed, although incredibly big).
