Unearthed nostalgia

Some three decades ago, I came up with a short D&D adventure using the Holmes rules.  My recent postings on the blue book made me nostalgic, so I dug out my old module.  I thought I'd share the maps now:
As you can see, I was apparently influenced a great deal by the moathouse and dungeon from The Village of Hommlet.  I don't think I ever actually ran the adventure, so you, my readers, are the first people to see these maps.
The adventure itself is unbalanced as hell, but I was probably only 13 or so when I came up with it.  Still, it's fun to look back at the creative works of a younger me.

That made me wax nostalgic too for my own maps, which I am confident are long gone.

Amazingly that top map looks a whole lot like how I seem to remember them--there was always a lot of rubble drawn in on the top level (Bone Hill and that first Slaver series module were both big influences too).

Thanks for posting.

Takes me back to the glory days of the late 70s and early 80s!
