Found! The Lost City of Karth!

Did a delve through a bundle of papers tonight, sorted out piles, some I can use for the game I'm planning to set up, some character sheets and player maps and loot lists from the 80s game, some printouts from my HyperCard World Stack, a few dungeon maps, and the find of the night, the map to the Lost City of Karth, located on the SE section of the Astoria map. It was perhaps my biggest case of wasted DM preparation, and truly was lost for awhile there. I wasn't sure I still had it after a couple of digs through the expected folders hadn't turned it up. This map is six combined sheets of graph paper lovingly covered with a city map in garish colored pencil, with a reputation so fearsome my high school buddies refused to get within a hundred miles of the place. A lost city full of treasure and horrors in a big swamp, for some reason they wanted no part of it. I even made building interior geomorphs for the ordinary buildings, long lost unfortunately, and had grandiose plans for it, though I hadn't drawn up too many details of contents and factions, since they cravenly stayed away. Now I just have to figure out the best way to scan it in. And maybe populate it for Dungeon Crawl Classics or Barbarians of Lemuria. Here's a phone photo that somewhat blurrily captures most of it. I'll try to get a decent scan or set of scans to replace it.
