The event’s Saturday. We need to have a map of the site – where the official tents go, where the unofficial tents go, guide rope issues, that sort of thing – by Friday night, so that we can get the big tents up then and coordinate the smaller ones on Saturday. So I spent the evening scribbling away on the computer. Fortunately, the site is dead easy to draw.
It’s funny. Everywhere else, my ability to make maps on the fly was subject to at least mild respect and approval. I never had anybody gasp, but they were impressed. But in the SCA, it’s… expected, really. After all, we all learned it the same way: via D&D.
