> > Another idea (which I used when playing Murkon's Refuge) is to use graph paper. I find that it helps a lot better. I've tried doing them on regular paper and they are just a mess. Just an idea.
> Always use graph paper when playing Murkon's Refuge. Plain undecorated paper will lead you to no end of frustration.
> Also consult the game's documentation in advance to have some idea of how big the map is going to be. When playing Murkon's Refuge, I started with a 20*20 map, only to find out that the map was actually 30*20. I had to get another sheet of graph paper and continue the map over on that.

I also had colored pencils that I use to mark certain things like yellow for traps, purple for teleports, royal blue for water, etc.
