Help Request: Looking For The Relabeled Forgotten Realms Blog Post...

Good Morning, All:

This is a quick post to ask a favor of the readers of "In Like Flynn". I'm looking for a particular blog post from a few months back, maybe even a year ago, in which the blogger talks about how to take a published campaign setting and make it your own. In that particular blog post, one of the techniques mentioned is to take the campaign map, change the names, and use that instead. To illustrate the concept, the blogger posted a relabeled map of the Forgotten Realms.

I was inspired to look for this when I was reading the most recent post on Ode to Black Dougal, which in turn referenced the Gray Box Project. As I was reading Sir Larkin's post about his project, I recalled the initial post I mentioned above, and thought I'd post a link to it in the comments. However, after thirty minutes of digging, I haven't been able to find it, so I thought I'd post a request here and see if one of you guys might know where it may be found.

Any assistance you could give would be greatly appreciated.

With Regards,
Flynn

None of those are the link that I'm looking for, but there's all pretty good, Grognard. Thanks for sharing them with me. :)

I think I've spent a significant amount of time from 1997 to 2009 in the "disposable campaign" department.

Hasta,
Flynn
