Realized that I never posted the finished versions of these here - so here they are.

These were my first serious attempt(s) at dungeon/indoor maps, so I'm sure that there are improvements that can be made to them. One thing I will definitely never do again is use a 10' grid as a base for a indoor map - way to difficult to scale everything properly.

The chapel map is in the next post.

Nice stuff - I can't wait to try my hand at some building maps.

Do you use a transparent overlay - I don't see the 'squares' you are referring to? :?:

@MarkusTay - Thanks...

I believe only the chapel map actually has the grid showing. I found a tutorial on how to create a grid pattern to use in Photoshop. I then create a new, transparent layer and fill it with the grid pattern and set that as my top most layer, turning it on and off as needed).

LOL -figures...

That was the only one I hadn't looked at. I really like that one - where do you get you icons?

Also, is that 'Choir Loft' really filled with all those guys? Looks like your PCs may have their hands full. :D

Most of the pieces were downloaded from the Dundjinni forums - a real treasure trove if you've never checked it out.

The Choir Loft is filled with people turned by magic into the pipes for the organ, I just decided to use adventurer 'icons' rather than plain statue icons.

That is VERY cool!

Consider it stolen. :P
