12 Castles & Keeps Maps Set
What is a King without a Kingdom? What is Kingdom without a Castle?
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. Book marked in easy to use PDF format. 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 guardhouses. 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 City, and a Mountain-Top City, a Lake City, a Wizard's Hold, a Holy Fortress, and several other castles and keeps of various sizes and character.
