Walkthrough Map: G1
The Steading of the Hill Giant Chief
Jason Thompson

Giants have been raiding the lands of men in large bands, with giants of different sorts in these marauding groups. Death and destruction have been laid heavily upon every place these monsters have visited. This has caused great anger in high places, for life and property loss means failure of the vows of noble rulers to protect the life and goods of each and every subject—and possible lean times for the rulers as well as the ruled. Therefore, a party of the bravest and most powerful adventurers has been assembled and given the charge to punish the miscreant giants.

In G1: The Steading of the Hill Giant Chief: This chief, one Nosnra, is a grossly fat and thoroughly despicable creature, sly and vicious, loving ambush and backstabbing.

G1-3 Against the Giants can be found at dndclassics.com—and to help celebrate one of the more famed adventurers in the game's history, we're proud to present our latest walkthrough map.

"cracks plates, burns corks..." bwah hah hah! Also, I do have to admit I never noticed during actual play that the orcs were packed into those rooms like sardines...although, is that accounting for the fact that the squares on the G-series maps are 10' x 10' rather than 5'x5'?

I like how Jason drew the "steading" to resemble a Norse long house with a sod roof.

Are any of Jason Thompson's walkthrough illustrations available as big posters? I'd kill to have some of them on my wall.
