Hello. I am still fairly new to this site, and I am not very good with map making yet. I am looking for a battle grid/map of a burning city. Doesn't have to be huge, just a section with rubble and fires smoldering here and there. Setting is D&D 4E, so high fantasy is best. It could be a port or not, but I was wondering if anyone had a map like this I could use in my adventure?
My advice would be:
1) do a search in these forums for Bogie's 'Back Alley' map. It's a big map of a city quarter, very well done. Save it to your computer.
2) do a google images search for 'dundjinni fire effect'. Dowload all the good ones and save them onto your computer as .pngs.
3) open up Bogie's map in photoshop/gimp/some drawing programme that can handle transparency, then import all your fire effects and duplicate them, then place them all over the map as you wish.
4) save your map - done!
What!!!!! Burn my buildings!!!!! Noooooooo!!!!!! Lol
Thank you, that looks pretty good. I took a shot at my own and it turned out ok too!
Great! You should post it up here to show us.
