Day 28: Share whose inspiring gaming excellence you’re grateful for
I had to think a bit for this one, but I think I’ll go with Pete Fenlon. He used to be with Iron Crown Enterprises, and he drew all of their overland maps for the MERP modules that they published. He developed his own, distinct style of mapmaking that inspired gamers everywhere.
And it inspired me, too. Looking at those detailed maps of the places I read in professor Tolkien’s books, tracing the journeys described and seeing what else is there. Perhaps this has given me a keen interest in RPG games that treat travel as an actual (part of the) adventure, instead of a reason for pesky random encounter rolls, like The One Ring and especially Ryuutama.
