Dire Boar Den - Map and Key

We've been busy mapping, keying, and populating the caves and dungeons of Hot Springs Island. The task was beginning to feel insurmountable and then I read a post over on Papers and Pencils that snapped me out of my funk and got me refocused!

My concern for creating the dungeons that appear in our hexes was that I didn't want each room to require the same amount of writing as the Points of Interest found in each hex, 'cause that could get obscene rather quickly. Once I started using the "room description fits on a single line" method detailed over on Papers and Pencils everything just kinda fell into place. If you check out the pdf you'll see that I'm being pretty fast and loose with those constraints and some things take multiple lines, but the concept helped out tremendously.

The layout is pretty bad, but as I used Word to do it, I have no one to blame but myself. :D

Many changes will be made to this doc (especially in terms of layout), but if you're in need of a one-shot adventure, involving a Dire Boar, feel free to drop this monstrosity somewhere in your campaign world!
