Crowdsource Project -- Barbarian Prince Hex Hack!

Remember Barbarian Prince? Sure you do! Here's the map. It's free to download on the Dwarfstar Games website, located here:

http://dwarfstar.brainiac.com/ds_barbarianprince.html




The map is still under copyright by Dwarfstar Games, so go grab a copy for yourself.

Man, that map is perfect for an old school sandbox! Time for a crowdsourced project!

Here's the link to a Google Sheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15N4beAStRAkS1nqKJ7Dt3owjo1vT_MZXVveh5muYgbc/edit?usp=sharing 

This is a list of all the numbered hexes, the terrain, and any special features.

Your job is to fill in an encounter for each hex. Please fill in your contact info and a link to your social media account of choice.

I'll leave the sheet up or maybe we could turn it into an awesome website like the Hexenbracken.
