/ / 4:22 pm Tue Sep 8, 2020 If you need a super-thin lead pencil to make maps for your 1980s dungeon crawler videogames, this one will do.
I have a few different mechanical pencils.
The ones I commonly use have lead thicknesses of 0.7mm and 0.5mm, both of which are fine for everyday notetaking.
But when my daughter and I fire up the DOSBOX DOS emulator on my Macbook Pro to play Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord (1981) only one pencil will do to make the 20 x 20 maps of the 10 level maze.
It”s the Pentel Orenz, with a hair-thin 0.2mm lead.
There”s no better way to draw one-way hidden doors, elevators, rotating rooms, and low-level summoning circles in the tiny squares of a sheet of graph paper than with this worthy scrivening tool.
By the way.

Great clippers for thick toenails.
I hope your toenails aren”t 15 millimeters thick, but if they are, these clippers will accommodate them.
They have tons of leverage and reviewers on Amazon love them
The price is good, too.

There is no “right side up.” I bought another 3-pack.
