    Post Greetings

    I've been looking for years for maps of realistic castle interiors for WFRP. I'm hoping this is the place. I've even taken to reading architectural history to find depictions of old European castles.

    If you can find it, this is a great historical reference:

    I am curious how many of these new users found this site through Penny-Arcade? I know that's how I found it!

    Welcome Aboard!

    Don't think there is a whole lot of realistic castle interior maps here at the present.

    When the Guild was first mentioned on Penny Arcade, membership and usage shot up significantly enough to nearly bring the server down.

    Welcome,

    We sometimes have photos of real castles. I like to visit them and I go nuts with a camera when I do and I usually buy the guide to one I have not been to before so I have a fair few booklets collected. Cant post the pics from them tho. We haven't had a lot of realistic maps of castles but Hoel has done some very nice ones recently. Lots of fantasy castles have walls which must be a foot thick. Visiting real ones with collapsed walls you realize that they are maybe 30 feet thick in places. They are quite different to the romanticized versions that artists tend to imagine and draw.

    Very much looking forward to seeing what you might post.
