This is my first edition AD&D web site. It contains maps of hemispheres, continents, islands, cities, towns, villages, dungeons, ruins, etc. The downloads page contains links to zip files of dungeon maps with the associated text.

I have added a few adventures and characters. I’ll add more as I have time.

Crestar is a fictional planet I created as a background for my first edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons games in 1980. It isn’t a parallel Earth nor a parallel Amber. I started with Trilloara and added to it. The Northern Hemisphere is fairly recent and was never part of the game sessions back then.

This site used to be at crestar.drivein; however, it had problems and I wanted to start fresh. So I created this site.

And please note no third party site had anything to do with my site. I did this all by my self.

The old crestar site has been deleted, I am creating new maps. All old surface maps on this site have been deleted. There are a few outdated maps here, they are place holders and will be deleted and updated in the coming months. These are particularly in some adventure dungeons.

Letters are narrow entrances. Numbers are caves or passageways. Map is 500’ × 400’.

Room 1: The big jumble of rocks is a trap to help the goblins deal with intruders. Stalagmites in room 1 supposedly keep a giant cave ant in place. The gray circle is a guard tower of goblins. Sometimes the ant eats some of the goblins.

Room 2: Also an entrace, but the outside wall is partially blocked.

Room 3: Cook fires and firewood.

Room 4 has a water well and a cauldron.

The round areas with a hole in them are the tunnels.

I was looking around the Internet for various other CMS to see what was available.

1) If you say free, its at no cost, not as in freedom. It should be clearer on your main page of your site promoting your CMS.

2) Whaen I do a search for ‘free php cms’ and it goes to your blogging software, something is wrong.

3) No need for fancy names I have no clue what you are talking about. If its an article or post, don’t call it eki and expect me to know what that means.

4) In Textpattern to add a category I just go to the menu Content, select Category, and add them. If I have to go to my domain account, or my home computer, and edit one or more php files to add one category, you need to add the code to your basic core and stop expecting users to do your job for you. Or just state you are still in Beta.

5) While some CMS I looked at had a wonderful site to show off what it can do, I shouldn’t be smacked in the face by suddenly understanding thats heavily customized and requires I learn a programming language to get those abilities. Again, I have no time to do your work for you.

I have more, but I have better things to do. Like watch television.
