    Default Scales of War VTT Battlemaps

    I finally got around to starting on these, but I'm starting on #6 - The Temple Between since that's the next one I'll be running. I may go back and do the others if people want them.
    I won't be keeping up my previously frenetic pace due to real life commitments, etc. Stupid real life.
    Anyways, here's the first map, The Shrine of Erathis.

    This one was a minor P.I.T.A., but it's done.

    I have a question for the people who use these maps: For an encounter that features several different elevations as part of the terrain (see encounter M6 - The Grand Cathedral for an example), would you prefer to have the elevations labelled, or use some sort of colored elevation system, or show no elevations at all?

    Good question, I await the answer with you.

    I checked out the Grand Cathedral map and with all those different elevation labels it got quite confusing but after a moment or two I got the hang of it.
    For player's I think it would be the best if there were no labels and the DM just told them the heights when they were useful (bull rushes e.t.c.) but for the DM that would be hectic.
    Now about the color elevation system that would have to be quite discreet as not to turn the map into a circus.
    So I think I would go with the colored elevation system if you could make it look nice, but if not then comes the labels but for sure don't do it without any elevations at all.

    I think this goes wthout saying...BRAVO!!! My group is currently on Destroyer, so this is on-deck. Your maps are sweet and I'm gonna use them.

    Will you be offering these up as .pdf for easy printing? Thus, printing on 8x11 paper and taping the pieces together?
