A few important news bits to share:
- Your calendar just got 1/7th of 100% cooler. Thursdays are now #TileThursday where you can draw a new tile for the mapper, post it on social media (e.g. the blue F, short update bird, and positive plus sign guy) with the hashtag #TileThursday, and my favorite tile will win a prize. This week: A postcard. Next week: The world? You’ll have to win to find out.
- As a joke I mentioned adding a mini-golf course generator to the mapper. But some people on Facebook can’t take a joke, so expect this new mode to be added sometime in the next month.
- I’m now on Twitter – @davesmapper. If you follow me, you might read an insightful tweet or two*. (*Hint: not from my account.) I’m also coining some new Twittery words to go along with my tweets: Twittermorphs, Dave’s Twapper, and Twatterfall.
Thank you for reading and please keep writing nice comments about my mapper; your compliments are like French kisses from a rainbow to my soul. (Or some less awkward metaphor.)

- Give us a one-sentence pitch for an adventure you haven’t run but would like to.
Anything? I don’t know what I’m even…
- What do you do while you wait for players to do things?
I think this isn’t going to work out. Maybe I should just get back to coding and drawing maps…
The Friday before last, I thought it’d be fun to do some random, non-tile mapmaking. So I tried to think of a place where I could easily post about this and get nearly instant response and ideas for maps. The first place that popped into my head was the Traditional Games board on 4chan. For those of you not familiar with this site or board, I need to give a quick warning: this post has some content that isn’t suitable for kids, and probably will hurt your head if you’re an adult as well.

I should have blogged about this earlier when it was more relevant and timely. My bad.
Apparently people go to things called conventions and look at cool stuff and buy things and dress up.
