    Default New Map Pack - One Dollar Dungeons: Paladin's Secluded Citadel

    Thought I would go ahead and post again about my newest One Dollar Dungeon! This is #7: the second-to-last in the series. This time we have Paladin's Secluded Citadel. Since I'd already done a traditional cathedral for the Cleric, I thought I'd do something a little different this time. So, we have a onion-domed, Arabian Nights style building in the desert--the perfect location for a crusader! Here are some sample images and the copy:

    One Dollar Dungeon: Paladin's Secluded Citadel



    Is this the starting point for your Paladin’s crusade, or will it be the bloody ending? Have you come to spread your god’s message in a foreign land, or are you defending against the savage heathen invaders? Will this sanctuary that’s stood in the desert for generations serve as a base for your new mission? With D20 Cartographer, the story is in your hands!

    Paladin’s Secluded Citadel is the seventh in a series of One Dollar Dungeon maps, which represent convenient starting locations or class-specific adventure locals for each traditional RPG character class. Paladin’s Secluded Citadel is an onion-domed fort in the desert with an Arabian Nights flavor: a perfect setting for crusaders! Three stories tall and a rooftop level, the citadel fort is mapped out in typical 1 in. = 5 ft. map format.


    Included for your convenience are several different formats including:

    • Full color map in a single .jpg (versions with and without grid)
    • High contrast black and white map in a single .jpg (great for printing on parchment textured paper)
    • PDF of the sliced images for your home printer, compatible with US Letter and A4 size paper

    D20 Cartographer also supports Virtual Table Top systems and includes:

    • 100DPI gridless .jpg maps with objects removed
    • An object file folder with over 18 new .png objects for private reuse in other maps
    • A MapTools .rpmap VTT file with vision blocking and objects set up for you. The Maptools file requires version 1.3b84 or higher to work.

    _______________________________

    There you go! Feel free to check out the RPGNow page and take a look at the Flash preview at the bottom. I've also attached the sample pages from the readme pdf so you can take a look here. As always, I welcome your feedback and reviews!

    It's been a couple of years since I spend some nights with my D&D group - but honestly if the weren't 10.000km between us now I'd buy the map immediately, call the guys and start!
    gorgeous!

    There are plenty of VTT's out there. Some for pay(Battlegrounds, ViewingDale(made by our won RedRobes!), FantasyGrounds, etc... as well as several free ones:OpenRPG, MapTool, etc...

    FYI, I happen to do some occasional development work on MapTool and am quite active in their forums... Battlegrounds owner, Heruca, has complied a fairly comprehensive list on his site(may be out of date)... as well as a comparison chart of some of the more used VTT's.


    EDIT: oh.. on another note, it also depends greatly on your users OSes... if you have users running Mac and/or Linux, that narrows the available field by quite a bit. Also.. most but not all of VTT's require some type of router configuration.. so whoever hosts(typically the GM) the game would need to be able to work through that(but not all VTT's require it though.)

    Wow RE, that is just gorgeous. I really like the way you show the lower levels when the focus is on one of the upper ones. If I was using VTTs (which I keep thinking I will try one of these days) I would feel like I was getting a steal buying this for one dollar.

    Ravells - Thank you, kind sir! I love your new avatar, by the way!

    Steel General - Thanks my man! I am pumped that this "One dollar" series is nearing an end. I have some big plans for other stuff...

    Moe - Well then thanks for the vote of confidence, if not the sale! Jfrazierjr is indeed right: playing over the internet is a lot easier these days than it once was! If you got skype and a VTT program, you're set. Heck, I know some people who prefer playing online.

    Jaxilion - thanks a bunch! I have been playing with the idea of starting up a group with some of my friends back home too. Maptool is pretty awesome in that it really can just funtion as a big ol' table that you can drop things onto. The macro stuff seems pretty darn complex to a layman like me, but you don't really need to use any--it just gives the option of automating a lot of stuff if you're savvy enough. I do kinda wish there were some kind of option you could click to have everything set itself up for, say, 3.5 or 4.0 edition and automate everything automatically. You know, like Fantasy Grounds but free.

    I would want Gurps but for all I know there are issues with setting up anything that actually uses the rules from a copy protected system.
