Landscape: The Manse

Landscape: The Manse


The Manse stands, grand and sprawling, mysterious. Beyond the facade, vast potential awaits. What will you make of it..?

Landscape: The Manse is a tool designed to support the development of locations of this general type. On just one page it provides 36 map elements, five possible connectors, four tables for further depth, and a host of ideas for potential natures.

It is compatible with various genres and systems and suitable for use in roleplaying and beyond. It can be used as a source of ready layouts for specific locations, as well as to inspire, arrange and detail locations, even at the table in the course of games.

The map elements can be used at the given scale, possibly with 1:285 (6mm) scale miniatures, or redrawn as required in play.

The two pages are arranged for ease of use on screen or printed, the key features occupying a single page. The tool includes:

  • 36 map elements arranged in six groups of six, all on one page
  • five suggested connecting elements, one for each element type
  • four tables - for orientation, doors, landscape beyond and stairs
  • 18 proposals for the overarching nature of the entire complex
  • a large number of suggestions for individual element natures
  • a compact diceless number generator for the specific range used

The tool can be used with Narrative: Abandoned Space, the map elements acting as a setting or structure for development, as well as with Elaboration: Structure & Surface, which provides 540 descriptive terms for adding more detail to locations.

Landscape: The Manse is also part of the main bundle.

This is an interesting and potentially very useful approach to map/plan making... an array of components to create your own floorplan of a large house, a mansion even. Note 'plan' - this is not a tool for making a battlemap, but one for creating floorp [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
