    @BokaSyn77: Thanks. I find I'm learning a bit more with each map I make, so I'm enjoying it too. When I'm all done I can post a .pdf, sure. That's how I use these maps myself. The problem is, I print them at work on the snazzy color laser printer and I need to do them all at once, preferably under cover of darkness.
    @Avengeil: With so many different elevations in these maps, I couldn't think of a way to use color to meaningfully differentiate the heights without turning it into, as you say, a circus. The warehouse map way back in post #3 had 5 different levels, only 2 of which needed coloring, so it worked there. I didn't use a goofy font for the labels either - I just wanted something to convey the height without detracting from the look of the map as a whole.

    Anyways, the results were too big to post (11+ MB). My bad.
    I've posted them for viewing at my DeviantArt gallery:

    Darn. The maps for M7 & M8 are too big to post as well.
    As usual, they can be found here:

    Well, looking at the map of the Grand Cathedral I'm thinking that the way you did the labels is the best possible way for that map.Someday I think I'm going to run the scales of war adventure series.But I'd really like to try out this map cause it seems to support some interesting tactical gameplay.Nice job for the whole project.

    Great work.

    Haven't you forgotten height indications on the last map (there are in the front room - 50'.. 40'), but not in the main room?

    Thanks
    There's only a few different elevations in that last map, so the DM can cover that when he describes the room; I only put them on the Grand Cathedral map because there were so many different heights in play.

    I'm curious what the dotted lines are (since I don't play the D&D I don't have this module) but these last two are quite nice.

    The dotted lines represent an overhang, visible in the Grand Cathedral map (post #11).
