This accessory features the beautiful rendered 3d maps produced by ÃƒËœ1 Games. The maps come with 1 inch square grid. Two versions of each map are provided: full color and grayscale (optimized for B&W printing). In Floorplans, Inn Vol.I you will find the most common inn rooms, including the kitchen, the cellar, the common room and more. The inn featured in this product is "The Fang" where the action of the adventure "Deadly Ice" takes place; you can use it as a generic inn or with the mentioned adventure.
Each map shows a room from a top-down perspective with stunning lighting effects and superb 3D-rendered objects. You can easily print out these maps and place your favorite miniatures on them. Highly detailed, these maps add flavor and facilitate tactical movements while running combat encounters. A one-inch square grid is drawn on each map but blended in perfectly with the environment.
Each map is printable on a single sheet of paper, except for two maps (The Common Room and the Warehouse) that comes divided in two sheets. You can print out the map you need in full color, or choose its grayscale-optimized version if you do not want to consume too much ink.
Even if you decide to print them in color, these battlemaps will be always more cost-effective than a printed version, as you can print out just what you need... even multiples of your favorite ones.
Get Inspired These maps are so detailed that simply looking at them can give thousand of ideas for your own games. Why does a blade of yellow light filters through the brewery? Who is the owner of that strange machine in the room on the upper floor? You know the answer, and your players will soon discover it.
Be Descriptive Even if you do not use the battlemaps for combat, their amazing detail will assist you in room descriptions. Looking at the map while describing the room to the players becomes easier than read plain text. You could look at the preview map of the Brewery and say:
"The smell of fresh malt and other odd ingredients fills the air of this room; you can see many barrels in a corner of the room and many scratches on the dirty wooden floor. A great bronze still with many pipes connected to it, dominates the wall before you and a marble work table lies behind a shelf. Finally, some black iron lanterns hang from the walls, drawing odd shadow shapes on them."
Build Your Own Inn You can assemble a inn using the battlemaps, fill it with your favorite characters and/or monster and use it for the simple tavern-brawl or for PCs investigation.
