My first campaign world, “Krull” (a city-state, actually), started in 1979 – well before the 1983 movie of the same name. This campaign started as a dungeon scenario based on Disneyland’s original (1967) Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Over time it grew into many villages, islands, caverns, etc., although I never did actually map out “Krull” the city.
Interestingly, the movie Krull is rumored to be the first Dungeons and Dragons feature film. Somehow the deal fell through and Krull was released without the tie-in.
Coincidence? I think not.

I am planning to publish the “Krull” materials bit by bit in an updated, more legible format. None of the dungeons were ever completely written out. I ran with maps, a handful of keyed rooms, and ideas of how things fit together. That is the advantage of running your own campaign world from scratch, you don’t have to worry that some later supplement will contradict what you added via improvisation.
