    Default Mapping Castle Bran aka Castle Dracula

    I was thinking it might be a fun project to map Castle Bran in Romania (Transylvania) the home of Vlad the Impaler, aka Vlad Dracula.

    Here is a link to the castle:

    I plan on doing this in CC3 for my own enjoyment as I'm no where near good enough to post for a Mapping Challenge.

    What do you all think?

    I think it's a little too specific, honestly. But just 'map a castle' might be cool.

    I can agree to that, my idea was to map a real castle (specifically that one, but any will do). So maybe that should be the suggestion.

    That's pretty cool. The *original* Castle Ravenloft. Still, the layout of the castle in I6 was cooler. I'd go with Diamond's general "map a castle" though. I've been thinking I'd like to redo the maps of Strahd's castle from Ravenloft at some point - of course, that's more than a single challenge-worth of work.

    I agree with Diamond's idea about a general map, too.That would be interesting.

    Why not just make your own vampire castle challenge? It doesn't have to be Bran just dark and spooky.

    Yes its been a while since we had anything with a castle in it. Whether a vampire castle or other I think something strongly fortified would be a great challenge idea.
