The traditional wilderness mapping in OSR games is by use of the Hexcrawl. A hex grid is over-layed the map and is used for traversing the world. In this episode I offer an alternative - the Point Crawl. It holds less information than a hex map but arguably is of more use to a GM and clearer to understand.
