I am finally ready to submit the final version of my map for keep on the shadowfell.

I started this map after I got a chance to play rpg again. I knew that there was ok maps already done. Both here and in the book. But I wanted to try and make my own style and I wanted to try and learn to make dungeons maps in photoshop. After a few reboots and test, I was ready to post the first snippet on 10-10-2010. After that I slowly worked my way toward the end. There was long periods where I did not work on the map for various reasons, but I was forced forward as the players advanced in the dungeon. So here we are today with Keep on the shadowfell Level 1, 2 and 3 done. I hope you will enjoy the maps as much as my players have done.

Done in: Photoshop cs 5. Plugins used: Filterforge
Statues is done by a friend in Poser.

The maps should fit right into vtt's like Maptools (what I use). The grid is 50 pixel.

Extra:
I promised in one of the first posts that I would give you all the png's of items and psd's.
Below you will find the external links to all the psd's. All items are created by myself. (with the expection of the crystals in area 18)

These are fantastic, thanks so much for sharing. I'm sure that once word gets out, people are going to be hitting up this page as a free resource. In fact, do you mind if I post a link to it over at the Obsidian Portal forums (my other online home)? I'm sure the good peeps over there would love to take advantage of this.

Cheers,

Really nice, not much else to say. I've already played through the adventure myself, but I'd certainly point anyone I know wanting to run this module in maptool to these.

Hi there Cadric,

Would you be willing to release your maps royalty free (These ones, and the one at http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?15413-H2-Thunderspire-Labyrinth&highlight=dungeon)? I would love to be able to make use of these in a game and they are exactly the style i'm looking for.

If so please let me know the price.

Thanks

Late as usually, both thanks for all the reply's. I'm glad people are happy with the maps. Unfortainly I haven't done much work on maps lately, as there have been other things that have occupied me. But maybe I will get thunderspire done one day ;)

Love the maps, we are running this campaign right now. We have level 1 printed on 2 A0's and the way these are drawn just really helps settings the mood.

Thanks for creating these maps!

I was planning on running this campaign in a couple of weeks, and this saves me a lot of time with preparation.
Thanks a ton, the PSDs should be fantastic for my uses.
