"The Fortresses & Strongholds Map Set is a great time saver. It provides for the basic needs of adventurers, and helps create a believable "fantasy" environment. These Maps offer some exciting strategic and role-playing challenges. I highly recommend them!"
- The Grand Dungeon Lord, DM Guild

As described by publisher:

At the end of a lonely road stands a mighty Fortress 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 Fortresses & Strongholds Map Set, contains 12 highly detailed floor plans of Forts, Castles, Keeps, Strongholds and Vaults. They may be printed at high resolution on durable heavy card stock.(Based on type of printer and paper/cardstock chosen by user.) 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 Torches, 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.
