Born to Run (D&D)

Arms
I found this cool map-making site called Hexographer.  It is a Java program that allows you to randomly generate awesome old-school-style hex maps for gaming.  They can be big or little and have little or lots of ocean.   Yesterday Lily saw me fiddling around with the site and wanted to make a map herself.  She loves maps, thanks to Dora the Explorer.  I let her make a map, then she wanted to fill it with the map symbols.  She made a massive city that took up at least ten hexes, sort of like a fantasy version of Mega-City One.  Just outside the city there was a massive statue, and in the hex beyond that, a ruin. At first Lily called the city "The Revengeable Village".  Yes, she came up with it entirely on her own.  After I pointed out that it looked more like a city, she changed it to "The Revengeable City".  She went on to tell me how the people had come out of the Revengeable City and built the statue, then moved on to destroy the next city, leaving it a ruin.  This was all on her own; there was no prompting from me. In just 10 minutes, Lily had created a map and had thought up a backstory for what was on it.  She might be a better GM than I am.
