    Default HS1 The Slaying Stone maps

    EDIT: This is the WIP thread. The finished versions of all of these maps should be downloaded from the Finished Maps forum here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/sh...encounter-maps

    ---

    I am running a group through HS1 The Slaying Stone starting today (on RPOL) and will be using MapTool to produce combat maps. I will remake each of the encounter maps from scratch in gimp, using various free textures and resources.

    Here is Encounter 1: the Hungry Wolves.

    Here is encounter 4: the kobold slums. Griddy and gridless versions with and without the secret passage.

    Encounter 5: Vermin Infestation. [EDIT - don't use this version; see next post instead for improved one]

    Improved version of Encounter 5 - I was unhappy with the lever in the top right, and the walls needed to be a tiny bit brighter.

    Encounter 6: Unearthed Pets. Trying to stay in keeping with our autumnal theme. I wanted to keep things very simple and uncluttered, but I might come back and add some doors, street furniture and other features later, if I feel like it.

    I don't know a lot about encounter maps but these look very nice to me. Good stuff.

    Encounter 7: Monsters and Manuals. I added a balcony around the main floor, because libraries always have balconies, and because it adds an extra tactical element for a battle that requires the big-bad to run around and avoid melee contact with the PCs. Note that the grid on the gridded version below is almost unnecessary because the tiled floor aligns to a five metre grid already.

    Nice maps! The library is very good. This is the first time I've seen my map tables get used, cool!

    Thanks Bogie - I think you made some tables with more books on too, but I couldn't find them so I inserted your map tables in their places as a placeholder. But then I forgot to go back and change them - still, your map tables are so lovely I think they should stay in.
