As described by publisher:
At the end of a lonely road stands a mighty castle silently waiting to be explored
by brave adventurers. Are the occupants friendly, hostile or shy? Will they lower
the drawbridge as you approach and greet you with open arms? Or will they cry "HAVOC",
and let slip the dogs of war as they rain showers of arrows upon your heads from those
tall and foreboding towers? |
The Castle and Keeps Map Set, contains 12 highly detailed floor plans of castles and keeps
which may be printed onto paper or durable heavy card stock by the user of this map set as often as
desired for personal/game group use. You will be able to quickly scan each castle's
fortifications - easily viewing its towers, moats, catapults and other battlements.
At a glance you will be able to see various buildings including inns, shops, temples,
and guard houses. Written descriptions become optional, since you can easily see, and
thus describe what is in each and every building. With a glance, you will be able to
describe to your friends/players, what they see, and where they see it, including such
things as beds, tables, chairs, fireplaces, statues, thrones and of course, the most
important thing, TREASURE chests!
As for the race, class, gender and disposition of the occupants inside, that is for you as DM to decide. You can tailor each castle and it occupants to suit your own world and/or campaign. These castles can be used as dungeons to challenge adventurers, or you may choose to incorporate them into your NPC world and give your adventurers a place to rest, recover and train after their battles. Of course, should an adventurer choose to build a keep, or perhaps win one in a card game, you will instantly have one to give them. Some castles are named, others are not, they all can easily be incorporated into your existing campaign, or used as stand alone encounters.
This set includes a Port City, an Under-Mountain and Mountain-Top City, a Lake City, a Wizard's Hold, a Holy Fortress, and several other castles and keeps of various sizes and character.
This is a SSD universal map set and is suitable for use with any fantasy role-playing game system that uses medieval style buildings for structures. However you choose to use The Castle and Keeps Map Set - it is likely to provide you and your players with Hours of Entertainment, and SAVE you hours of Tedious map making. You can spend the extra time you save focusing on the more enjoyable aspects of fantasy role-playing, such as actually PLAYING the game. :)
