Jaquay Dungeons

A link on Jeff's Gameblog pointed me to this article on Jaquaying the Dungeon. I'm not familiar with Paul Jaquay's work, and now I'm really sad that I haven't seen more of it. He's obviously dedicated to pushing the art of dungeon design to new lengths. The bandit caves showcased in the article are spectacular. Must read more!

Paul Jaquay's has done some great work. I'd guess he's best known for some of his Judge's Guild stuff: Caverns of Thracia (1979), Dark Tower (1979), the very cool "Night of the Walking Wet" from issues 5 & 6 of The Dungeoneer, which I found in The Dungeoneer Compendium pretty cheap on ebay. He also was one of the authors of the legendary Griffin Island (1981) and Griffin Mountain (1986) supplements for Runequest.

And, one more! I'm a big fan of FR5: The Savage Frontier, which I only recently realized was one of his.

Are you going to be at Gen Con this year? If so, I'd love to get some dungeon-y gaming in if you have time!

I'm afraid no Gen Con for me this year, though I will be at PAX on Friday. Next year is starting to feel like it'll be a Gen Con year for me again. I'd love to do some dungeon crawling with you.

Too bad. Well, I'll catch you next time. Have fun at PAX!

Jaquay's work is classic. It's nice to revisit it with this cool explanation. Thanks for posting!
