    Haunted Burrow Map - *SPOILER*

    *SPOILER WARNING*

    I have prepared a map of the Haunted Burrow which I'd like to offer to anyone who may be interested in such a thing. The Haunted Burrow is possibly the most interesting (and fun) festival event we've seen thus far. And while I encourage everyone to explore the space on their own I know there are those who will benefit greatly by having a map to study.

    This drawing was prepared with rudimentary survey techniques and details the locations of walls within the space, connections between areas and locations of items within those areas. Apart from that, the map gives no indication of what to do, or where to go first - you'll have to work all that out yourself.

    I'm providing links instead of images here to prevent the undue spoilage of surprises. This way, you'll have to click a link if you want the map. I'm providing the map in PNG format in 2 resolutions as well as PDF file suitable for printing (the suggested course of action). So, for the cartographically challenged, I present, The Haunted Burrow Survey:

    The Haunted Burrow Sm v1.1.PNG (1600x1236) {for viewing}
    The Haunted Burrow Lg v1.1.PNG (6600x5100) {for printing}
    The Haunted Burrow v1.1.PDF (4000 DPI) {for anything}

    Note: If you print the PDF on 8.5" x 11" paper it should come out to scale (or very near to it).

    Note: Also, if the map looks fuzzy - zoom in. There's plenty of resolution in these images (excepting the first one).

    Awesome! I had started doing this with graph paper and a pencil, your map is much prettier than mine!

    Wow, good job.

    Though I won't actually be looking at it until I run this myself a few times. I like surprises

    Thank you as well Cipher_nemo! I'm glad I went ahead and pushed the resolutions up now. I didn't know if anyone would find that useful but I'm very glad you did. It should make it easier to print and still be able to read everything.

    Thank you also, Rhondalicious! I started in the same place - with graph paper and a mechanical pencil. And trust me, if it wasn't for the drafting software my map wouldn't have been pretty at all!

    Thank you too, Rawlor! I totally understand...that's why I posted links to images and not just images. I like making maps, but I don't like spoiling surprises! And it wouldn't surprise me a bit if, after a few runs, you find you don't need a map at all.

    Very nice work!

    A minor quible (and mild spoiler)-










    you can get Bilbo's wine in places other than the ones you show.

    Nonetheless, +1 rep for you.

    Rep added,

    Always love to see people putting in the yards for the community.

    I've downloaded the pdf, but wont use it until I'm done .. I just love the work that has gone into this festival..

    here's to hoping that the Devs can put this much work into the next raid cluster, and make it as much fun

    As a (VERY) directionally challenged person - I thank you for this (Finding the poor scared hobbits today took me 45 minutes ) At the rate I'm going, I *might* get in a speed run on the day the festival closes!!!

    Excellent -- thank you! I'm going to try it on my own, but nice to know I have the map bookmarked for when I assuredly become lost!

    Re: Haunted Burrow Map - *SPOILER*

    I had made myself a crude map as well because I kept getting turned around & now looking at your layouts, I see I kept going between the Main Cellar & the Basement & didn't realize they were two different areas. Hah. Guess I need to buff my Dungeonering stat. Consider yourself rep'd.

    I just wanted to say thanks for all the positive responses from everyone. I'm not going to try to respond to everyone individually, but please know I appreciate the positive feedback (and +rep) you've all provided. I'm very very glad you all like the map and find it useful.

    Sthrax - That's no minor quibble - that's an important detail and I'm glad you brought it to my attention! I don't know if the quest has changed since I made the map or if I just overlooked something from the start. Either way, I will investigate this anomaly and have a corrected version of the map available as soon as I can. Thanks again for pointing it out.

    And thanks again to everyone who's posted in this thread. It really does mean a lot to me.

    Nice map! One issue:

    For the Valuables Gone Astray quest, only one cocoon, etc. is correct and remains correct every time you start the quest.

    Thank you very much. And yes, you are correct. However, there's a lot of people who will want to solve the puzzles themselves and I wanted the map to be useful to as wide an audience as possible. So, I made the map to help more with navigation than quest completion.

    But you're absolutely right. It's in the same place every time and I showed all the different locations - on purpose. But at least you know why now.

    What program did you use to create this?
    It is very well designed.
