Probably asked before but..
I'm doing a Vatican like super cathedral complex for a D&D game.
I need to find a sight that has design symbols I can use for insperation (I don't need them as cut and past). Things like how windows and doors etc etc are depicted that can work in Holy Roman Empire era architectural plans.
Thanks!

Type in "cathedral plans" to google = there's a vast number of relevant sites, and if you want specific looks at design images, check the Images link, there's hundreds. I tend to adjust the image search to show me Extra Large with Line Art for th best results on a search like this. Unfortunately, i'm int he middle of something right now, or I'd go through and see if there were specific links I could recommend :P

As for specific information on this forum, I apologize, I'm still fairly new here so haven't explored much beyond the regional mapping and tutorials :)

Plus wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathedral_diagram) has a decent article on the design elements as well..
