This map is used for two encounters, 1 & 8. Please C&C.

These are the edited versions...I guess it was premature to post in the "Finished Maps" section :lol:

Very nice! Your water is particularly good looking. Do I detect some Image After textures in there? That site is the source of much of my texture library.

Wow these are great. The only thing I could see is that the broken parts of the bridge could use some "depth" maybe a little shading around the edges. Either way their awesome :)

@ mearrin69: The bulk of the textures I use come from CG textures (http://www.cgtextures.com/). I'll have to go look at Image After.

@jtougas: Looking at them now, I agree. I think maybe a bit of a bevel along the broken edges might help them show up better.

Very nice maps. Good job

Looks good. I'd suggest pulling back the textures on the river a little. They're very dominant at the moment. I find that a base colour with a few textures over the top set to overlay, or soft light with low opacity does a good job of providing the texture whilst still allowing different elements to blend together. The drop shadow on your rover edge is a bit heavy too - it makes it look like it's floating.

I love the towers - you've done a great job with the textures on those, and the shadows work perfectly to give the impression of their height. Good stuff - looking forward to seeing more.

I think the river might be so "violent" like that because it's actually very rapid. Though I can't remember.

I do remember that HS2 gave us the greatest monster ever: Giant Archerfish. Because nothing says heroic like giant fish that squirt water at you.

I was kinda going for a rapids-type thing, since it's just before a waterfall. I'll mess around with it and see what happens. I see what you mean about the shore shadow too.

I like mapping constructed things rather than natural settings...why do so many encounters have to happen outside? :lol:

I've replaced the original maps with edited versions. Thanks jtougas and torstan for the suggestions :D

Are you currently working on the rest of the maps for orcs of stonefang pass? I'm going to run it soon and loved your maps for the slaying stone.

Yes, I am...the holidays ended up being kinda busy for me, but once I get back to my routine I should be cranking out the last maps for this.

Here's the maps for Encounters 2 & 3. They seem to be getting a little extra distance out of each map in this module.

These can be printed out and used for when the floor collapses instead of making a whole new map for Encounter 3.

wow that was fast. Hahahaha, the dead bodies are great. The separate cracks are really helpful! Thanks and keep up the amazing work

Thanks :-)

I forgot to include the map for the guard post for encounter #6...here it is.

Great job! My guys will love these

Here's encounter #9. The last map looks pretty easy, so I should have that up tonight as well.

Awesome work!
Thank you!

Thanks for the map, its very very good, my players complained after seeing them because they say will be too spoiled to accept a simple drawing in the white board for future combats, they want more..,)
