Game nerds rejoice! The Internet brings you great tidings this time in the form of PlaGMaDA, an archive of play generated manuscripts and drawings depicting shared places. Notably, the project is more sophisticated than a database of Dungeon and Dragon collectible illustrations, the drawings resembling artifacts you might see at the Folk Art Museum. The site does however break from the art world tradition of labeling everything “Untitled” typically opting for purely descriptive titles. My personal favorite are those that appear with explanations as well, such as Lean to Shelter: Sledge anchors a lean-to shelter atop a wooded ridge, while the Dwarves do battle with a troll. Geeks will be especially happy to see an album devoted exclusively to computer game maps. To donate materials contact Timothy Hutchings at plagmYYYada@gYYYmail.com. (Remove the Ys)

    I love this! Boy does it bring back memories… I think I have some RPG character drawings stored away somewhere–I’ll have to dig them out.
