Secret Invisible Gygax Dungeon


I know this map has made the rounds, but I was futzing around with it in Photoshop, hoping to get more detail, and what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a strange sunflower-shape dead center of the dungeon. 

What is it? 

A watermark logo on the graph paper? Probably...

Or could it possibly be the outline of the next level of Castle Greyhawk faintly showing
 through the page?!?

Has anyone else discovered this?

UPDATE: Grodog at Dragonsfoot sent me a better copy of the image file, and I was able to pull out a bit more detail. Here it is:

  2. I tried to clean up the text, but didn't have much luck. I'll try to post an image of what I've got later tonight.

    The line you're referring to looks more like "2d damage TRAP" to me.

  5. Hi Norman! It was good to meet you as well. Yep, I'm here in Austin. In fact, I'll be seeing you Sunday at the D&D meetup.

  6. Damn! What on earth is that? We were poring over that image over at Knights & Knaves - your image manipulation-fu seems better than mine for sure...

  7. It bears a striking resemblance to the BP logo, actually. What's the thread over on Knights & Knaves? I'd love to read what others have made of it.

  15. As much as home inspections are important Commercial Property Inspection Maryland also holds vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon Inspection Cost Maryland is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.
