Thinking of you, Gaz... I have some great maps for you

Our old friend allsirgarnet, the gentleman known as Gaz, would have loved these maps. The campaigns he ran were the stuff of legends.

How I miss Mickey (aka Post Captain), Gaz and the old forum (before a few members wrecked it for the rest of us). Nowadays... Well... The Nap forum is a ghost town...

For a world with more Mickeys and allsirgarnets in it.

I can imagine Gaz creating amazing campaigns with these maps.
