View Full Version : Nothing Fancy. Tavern Basement.

Here is my first indoor battle map. It's going to be the first encounter of my campaign, the big baddies.... Rats! LOL. Since I have new players, this will give them a good test run for the d20 battle system. I am going to be making all my battle maps to scale so that I can print and make dungeon tiles. :)

I plan to custom make as many things as possible myself. As I develop items and doodads, I will create a package and post it here for everyone to use.

Made this with Photoshop CS3. Critique is of course welcome.

Really nice and clean, and very pleasant lighting. I would love to have a copy of your floorboard texture.

Thanks for the comment. Here is the floorboard texture I used. I hope it serves you well! :)

Looks pretty good except the missing doors :)

Being a basement there would be no door. There is however, a trapdoor in the floor above, rather than a door against the wall.

Oh ok so that thing in the top left is the stairs...my bad. I thought it was a table but now looking closer I can make out a light gradient.

Thank you! Have some rep by way of thanks!

No worries. Once I have set up a few more of my battle maps, I will have more stuff to share with the community, as I said. I hope to make a full package for everyone to use.


So, I was just thinking... What would be the best way to package these things? I have a couple options that I am mulling over. Either make them individual patterns, (brushes don't seem to work) Or I could just make a bunch of transparent PNG files... I assume the PNG files would probably be the best?

So here is an update on the tavern! I figured just in case, it would be best to make a map of the upper level as well. Even though the first encounter is supposed to be in the basement, you never know with players... They may very well start a fight with drunken patrons. lol.
It isn't quite finished yet. I still need a wood stove and a trap door to the basement. Just wanted some input to see how I am coming along.

Needs giant Kegs for the beer...

Very nice, thanks for sharing! You could add a railing on the stairs in the basement just so they stand out as stairs a bit more but then if it's a cheap type basement they would probably NOT have one anyway.

It's good either way, have some rep.

Love the "mood" lighting. Repped.

Glad to see it all came together...I really like the lighting too!
